THIS WEDNESDAY, students will be fed a wholesome lunch whilst having the experience of eating a hot meal together as a class community. We aim to set this up as a long table lunch where each child will have their own place setting. The Dining Hall experience will give children the opportunity to build independent skills when serving them self as well as learning table manners. Please note that there is no charge to families for this service.
Date: WEDNESDAY 27th May 2020 (Week 5)
- Fish and Chips
What students need to bring WEDNESDAY:
- Plate and Fork labelled with student’s name (non-disposable)
- NO LUNCH
If your child has any dietary requirements please email us.
Part of our future showcase for our masterclass in week 10 will include students’ very own infographic created in keynote just like the brilliant light bulbs we created a couple of weeks ago. Here are some works in progress….
Our classes brainstormed some topics that WE are passionate about. When we research a topic we are passionate about, the learning is more meaningful, deeper and serves a better purpose. Here are just some of the topics our classes brainstormed that we are passionate about.
Punctuation is important when we read. It adds meaning to what we are reading. Why do we need full stops? commas? Exclamation points!
Mrs Hawkes modeled how the alphabet might sound when we add punctuation…
In mathematics today, students used active inspire to make their own fraction wall, given one whole. This will enable students to perform skills such as recognizing equivalent fractions, adding fractions and finding fractions of fractions. There are many links which involve whole numbers such as LCM (lowest common multiple).
Today the students continued to look at perspective art and using a vanishing point. They used these elements to create a city scape. Look at the work in progress.
Today we are thinking about mould and how it might grow on bread. We had a teams chat and a class brainstorm on what variables affect mould growing on bread… we discussed the type of bread, the amount of germs that have come into contact with it…ie washed hands/ unwashed hands, the temperature bread is exposed to, amount of light etc..
Here is what students came up with as well as some ideas for their experiments and investigations….
Students were given the chance to use keynote in a way they probably never have before- to animate. They were given a tutorial video to follow, replicate or create their own animation. Here is a great example below by Djaran – who did this all at home whilst remote learning… there are many more great examples in the works from students in class so stay tuned for more future postings!
more added- well done to Benjamin who did his entirely at home and also to Patience- excellent work !
