This week has been quite an adventure!

 

In English we continued to focus on poetry and innovated our original text to create a new class version.  During the process we generated many ideas for our own inventions and put them in 'Save it Boxes'.  In our poems we are going to be explorers, investigators, divers, seekers, adventurers and more all searching for a hidden wreck, be it a pirate ship, battle ship, the Titanic, war ship, explorers ship, submarine etc.  We have continued to develop our use of alliteration and finding synonymns. We have planned our poems and will write them next week.

In Maths we have secured our understanding of using symbols to order number and say whether numbers are greater than or less than a number.  We have developed the skill of rounding to the nearest multiple of 10 and some of us can round to the nearest 100.  We had a lot of fun drawing our own number lines and marking multiples of 2,3 4,5 and 10. 

In Science we have sorted objects into the categories 'Alive', 'Once lived' and 'Never lived'. We have been studying different habitats, their features and the plants and animals that are integral to them.  Many of us researched a favourite habitat and then created a fact file about it identifying the habitat features and the animals that live there.  We also illustrated them.  Some of us showed our understanding practically. Can you name the habitats and the animals in the main photo?

Finally, in Computing we learned how to take a good photograph, for example, having a steady hand so it is not blurred, having the subject off centre to make it more interesting and most importantly of all - don't have your finger over the lense! We then had some fun using 'Photo Booth' to create very funny photographs.

We will continue to be Super Scientists in Week 6 and show off our new skill of being Poets!
