Short week 😆

A short week for the children but still packing a punch with our learning!

A STEM challenge turned us into budding architects as we tried to build the Eiffel Tower! 🇫🇷 We used spaghetti and marshmallows, straws and blu-tac, Lego, K-Nex, play-doh and cocktail sticks and Jenga blocks! Some of our buildings became really tall, others fell down, we explored which materials are best for building and how to make our structures strong!
We also continued to work hard on reading and writing our ‘tricky’ words. We played games, practiced rainbow writing ✏️ 🌈, look, cover, write, check, sounds cubes and hiding our words inside shapes.
We explored the emotion of Embarrassment. After reading our Pufferfish poem, we discussed times when we can feel embarrassed, how our bodies react and then how to overcome embarrassment. Sometimes it’s best to just laugh it off and know that everyone gets embarrassed at some point!

Well done P2, you are all STARS ⭐️

P3 learning

P3A were super busy this week. They wrote an independent story based on their own characters and genre and the results were amazing! We were focusing on connectives and discussing the different times we use them. We were also continuing preperation for reconcilliation by thinking of things that we are sorry for and discussing how we can do better next time.We were also working hard learning division and recognising the different language used, example groups of 2 and 2 groups of… They did some outdoor learning and PE and we got the water and beakers out today which was super fun, oh and also helped us with our learning of capacity and volume. The volume of work done this week was astounding! Lucky we have the long weekend to recover:)
