We made an animation and created some optical illusions ysong photos.

We have continued to learn about 2D shapes. We have learned about different types of triangles and their properties.

We researched facts about Ellie Simmonds and wrote a whole class description text based on her life.

P7/6 Week Review 27.8.21

What a fantastic few weeks we have had. Everyone has settled into the new classroom routines and giving their all to the work in class.

Last week we spent time organising the classroom to suit our needs and we build shelves to house our books and also to provide us with a comfy seating area. We have also added a resilience station which we can access upon finishing our activities where we are given opportunities to focus on skills such as perseverance and team work.
We took part in some group work activities and had to design something to stop Humpty Dumpty (an egg) from cracking when dropped from a height. Mrs Smith was very impressed as not one egg was damaged even when we dropped them from an even higher height.

This week we have been focussing on the novel ‘There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ and we have thoroughly enjoyed reading chapters 1-6. We started our novel study by looking at the different front covers for the book and then making predictions about what we think will happen in the story. We have also been answering questions about the main characters and what they are like and also creating a picture based on the author’s word choice.

We have started our learning on place value and we have been competing against each other to create the biggest or smallest numbers from different digits.

We created a wonderful door display with our names in graffiti writing on top of a crumbling wall. We have had lots of compliments from others pupils and teachers about our display.

Well done P7/6- keep up the hard work.
