Reflective Friday – By Chris and Seán
In writing, we have been learning how to write a piece of writing from an orangutan’s view. We were using our non- negotiables, adverbs and using our success criteria. In spelling we have been revising our past spelling words and patterns, then choosing the hardest words. In reading, we have been reading Kensuke’s Kingdom and examining the sentence structures to help with our writing.
In maths we have been looking at rounding decimals to the nearest whole, tenth and hundredth. We also rounded to the nearest significant number to help with our addition.
We used these skills in real life to help us spend the money we were given to by helpful things for the classroom.
In our topic, we have been looking at volcanos/hurricanes. Hurricanes also are called cyclones, typhoons and whirly whirly’s depending on where you are in the world. In IDL we have been looking at St john’s ambulance and planning our fundraisers in groups. We also went on a trip to Megitland to play tennis, football and touch rugby. We also got a new German teacher and we revised from what we did last year. In addition, some people did bike ability. In H&W we did our ICT SMART posters, it stands for safe, messages, accepting, reliability and talk.
What we enjoyed
We enjoyed megitland a lot and it was very fun. We also enjoyed bikeablity because it was fun and enjoyable.
Next steps/home learning
To round to the nearest thousandth and maybe ten thousandths.
At home you could practice your bikeability skills. You could play maths games to help practice. You could also look at maths is fun.
