FITNESS

We have started learning the basics of European Handball in our PE lessons. We took the opportunity to practice our skills in fitness today!

PLACE VALUE

We continued our learning surrounding number and place value today. Together we completed a Kahoot surrounding this topic. Kahoot’s are an online quiz forum in which we all answer the questions together. Students love this engaging way of not only introducing a topic, but also reviewing and reinforcing knowledge. 

We also set up our online Prodigy Math Accounts. Prodigy is a free, Pokemon-style math game that has been proven to improve student scores and confidence! It is aligned to the curriculum for grades 1-6, and features content from each of the five major strands. In 5/6IB and 5/6MS we aim to use Prodigy with a few goals in mind including; to create deep engagement with math topics being covered in class, equip teachers with assessment tools to inform their instruction, and provide curriculum aligned content! Students can access Prodigy at both home and school s0 the learning never ends!

ART

Mrs Harrison came in to lead our special Art lesson this afternoon. Provocation:Using the sign language alphabet write your name. Challenge yourself to see if you can hand draw these! Leave the hands white, outline with black and decorate the background.

Thank you for a positive day! See you tomorrow 🙂
