Revolting Rhymes and Weather Records with P4n

P4n had an exciting start to the new school year when we visited Screenplay 2018 at Mareel to see Revolting Rhymes, a film based on Roald Dahl’s book. It was very funny and encouraged us to explore traditional tales more. We even tried to write rhymes of our own which was really hard but good fun!

Our topic this term has been all about the weather. We learned about the different types of weather and how forecasts are made. We measured the temperature, rainfall, wind speed and wind direction for 2 weeks. Then we used computers to create block graphs to show our results and created posters to show what we found out about the weather.

We measured shadows at different times of the day to see how they changed and used a torch at different angles to make a lego character’s shadow grow longer and shorter. We also made a tornado with water and washing up liquid!

As well as doing lots of measuring and recording, we’ve been finding out the difference between weather and climate. We used the internet and books to research what animals do to survive in different climates. We’ve been learning how to take notes and using them to create Powerpoints.

It’s been a very busy term so far and we really enjoyed showing our families all our hard work at our Learner Led Event on Thursday so a  big THANK YOU to everyone who was able to come.

A busy day in P2n

 

Here are some pictures of a typical busy day in P2n.  The class has been learning to use Rekenrek counting frames to help them with subtraction and this has worked really well.  Also some great work at the craft table, games table and big book reading activity.  Checkout the class singing Frere Jacques in two groups at the top of the page!

 

JIANZI FUN!
