We’re on the second week of our literacy kicks program and we are loving it. This week we looked at Tatiana McFadden, a law changing Paralympian from the United States. We had a great time writing a profile piece on her and can’t wait for next week.
Class 9 loved our visit from SCARF today. We learnt all about our individuality and our healthy bodies. We can’t wait for the next visit
We had a great Geography lesson today where we looked at how water can fall, make a stream, which joins a river, and can go out to sea. We did this by making a replica mountain and having it rain down it.
Class 9 had an excellent end to the week with a fun hour of Freddie Fit. He helped us to work on our listening skills as well as our teamwork skills. We had a wonderful time and can’t wait to do it again!
We visited the Hindu temple in Oldham. We drew a range of artefacts whilst we were there and found out lots of information about the Hindu faith.
In history, we examined a range of Roman artefacts. We tried to identify what they are, as well as what they tell us about Roman life. . . . .
This weeks science was all about our teeth! We began an experiment to see which drinks had a good and bad effect on us. We were most surprised to see that coke simply dyed the teeth brown whereas orange juice fully dissolved the shell away!
In music this week, we were able to play 7 pieces of music fluently reading sheet music. We also explored a new way to play the violin called Pizzicato, which means to pluck in Italian.
We have further explored our topic of making digital music by trying out a new piece of software called GarageBand. We all enjoyed it and some of us said we were going to install it at home!
We had our second violin lesson. We recapped the names of the violin parts and were able to play the two songs we did last week, but this time even better.
Today we had a practical lesson of counting in 1000s using one of our new tools, Egg boxes! It was great fun and we can all now confidently count in 1000s
