English activities in Room 7

Examining the illustrations in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Paired reading between Room 17 and Room 12

In Room 17 we read with expression, an awareness of punctuation and we do our best to get into role as characters in a story when reading dialogue.

 

We modeled our reading skills to Room 12 and listened to them read aloud. We were able to help them with things such as pausing at a comma or a full stop or sounding excited when reading before an exclamation mark!

 

Everyone really enjoyed this activity and we all learned from it 😊

Celebrating World Book Day in Room 1

The boys and girls in Room 1 dressed up as their favourite character in a book this week.

They then described the character and the plot of the book. Some pupils just wanted to describe their favourite book too.

It was a super day!

 

3rd classes meet an author!

This week some of the 3rd classes were lucky enough to meet Shane Hegarty, author of the Darkmouth and Boot series. Over the past few weeks we’ve been reading his book about a lost robot named Boot. We learned some great tips about writing and we had a chance to ask questions and share some of our ideas for robot inventions!

Pancake Tuesday in Room 13

We were so lucky that Ms Stone (expert pancake maker) came into our class to show us how to make the perfect pancake. To make the batter you need flour, milk and eggs. We all got the chance to flip the pancakes. Did you know the world’s largest pancake is bigger than 15m in diameter?!!!

Procedural writing fun in Room 1

With Ms. Dennedy Room 1 were learning about recipes. They were learning the correct method for making pancakes. They measured out the ingredients and mixed them together and then got to make pancakes. We got to decorate them with our favourite toppings!

What a delicious way to learn about writing recipes!

We got to taste our delicious pizzas once they were cooked!

It was s super day!

 

Reports in Room 2

Report writing in Room 2 was so much fun.

Novel studies in Room 1

we are just finished reading our class novel ‘Stig of the Dump’. We really enjoyed reading it and watching the characters and story develop throughout the story.

We were deciding in our groups whether we agree or disagree with different statements about the story.

We had to use persuasive language to try to convince each other in our oral language lesson.

Procedural writing in Room 13

As we have been learning about procedural writing, room 13 took a trip to Milano restaurant, Milano to learn the procedure for pizza making! We each got to make our own pizza and they were delicious. The next day we wrote the recipe for the pizza . It was great fun!
