In the library last week from primary 3-7 there was a google expedition. We all had great fun exploring different places and different things. We all had goggles to put on an we had to move it around. The teachers had an Ipad to control what we saw. We also had a trip to the Rain forest and saw lots of different animals. It was very exciting and fun. We all loved it!
A couple of weeks ago it snowed and we all went out and played. It was fun because there was something for everyone.We had snowball fights in the muga and snowmen building in the playgrounds and more. If you managed to stay of the tracking sheet you were aloud to lay in the snow on the field at the front of the school. By Chelsea
Mrs Harrison has so enjoyed teaching this topic. We have looked at what a right is and the rights that some people do not have. We have found out about dictatorships and Kim Jung Un- North Korea’s dictator. We have found examples of fact, opinion and bias in newspaper reports and we have been writing speeches for debates. What are you enjoying and what has surprised you? Leave a comment below.
In class we have been doing surveys in 3 different groups – favourite cartoon characters , favourite pop stars and favourite films. We put this information into graphs.
We have also been looking at synonyms which are words that are different but have the same meanings .
Lastly we are working on our poems which are The boy on the train by Mary Campbell Smith and an Extract from Tam ‘o’ Shanter by Robert Burns.
This week Greg from the Google Expeditions team came to take us on a virtual reality tour of volcanoes and earthquakes. We all got to wear headsets that gave us a 3D tour of inside a volcano and even out to space to see the tectonic plate boundaries. It was really cool!
