Pod projects in Room 13

We are all delighted to be back to school in Room 13. It’s lovely to see each other again. We are working on ‘Pod Projects’, where each of us in our pod, has a different role. Every group has a Leader, a Delegator, a Recorder, a Researcher, an Artist and a Minder. It’s nice to connect with each other again, while learning lots. Our projects are on The 1916 Rising. We can’t wait to show you the finished product!

Christmas village in Room 13

Room 13 worked so hard to construct a building each, recycling boxes to create a Christmas Village! It’s on display at the front of the school so make sure to have a look! Happy Christmas 🎄

Famine Freeze frames in Room 13

In Room 13, we are learning all about the Famine. As a drama lesson, we created freeze frames in our pods to depict different famine situations. Can you guess which pod is showing an eviction, which is showing a soup kitchen, which is showing a work house and which is showing a coffin ship?

Room 13 Project Presentations to Room 15

Room 15 were so lucky to hear some of the wonderful project work that Room 13 have been doing on the Native Americans. We had a socially distanced presentation in the yard where Room 13 shared some wonderful facts and really showed off both their project and presentation skills! Well done!

Christmas villages in Room 13

In Room 13, we are reusing materials from our recycling bins to construct different shaped buildings and create a Christmas Village! Stay tuned to see the finished result!

Project presentations in Room 13

In Room 13, we have been very busy working on projects about the Native Americans.
Today we got to show off our hard work by doing Project Presentations. We spoke about our different subheadings, read our favourite parts, talked about our drawings and about what we enjoyed and found difficult.
We learned so much from each other’s hard work and enjoyed the process of doing a project. 😊

Procedural writing in Room 13

We were learning all about Procedural Writing in Room 13 and each of us picked our favourite recipe and wrote it out to be included in a cookbook!
Adelina and Isabela designed a cover for the cookbook, which suits it perfectly! Thank you!
We will keep busy this mid-term break by trying out each other’s recipes!

Friendship postbox in Room 13

As part of Friendship Fortnight, Room 13 made a Friendship postbox! You could put something in there for someone (a nice message or picture, some people even sent homemade gifts and treats!). The post would quarantine in the box for a few days and then we would distribute it! Having the FF postbox provided great excitement and fun! 🙂

Back to school in Room 13

Room 13 had a wonderful September, settling back into the routine of school very well. We worked really hard and learned lots about different things, including the History of St Louis, the Mountains, Rivers and Deserts of the world. Have a look at our timelines and map work in the pictures posted! We’re also reading Charlottes Web at the moment, which is really relevant as it’s all about friendship and we’re celebrating Friendship Fortnight on our school. We love the quote “Friendship is one of the most satisfying things in the world”. We’ve also done some Autumnal Art we’d like you to see! Some of us used paint to colour, while others used colouring pencils and markers.

Celebrating Tree day in Room 13

To celebrate National Tree Day, Room 13 learned all about the Birch Tree. We learned that there are two types of birch, the Silver Birch and the Downy Birch. The Downy tends to be smaller and more greyish white while the Silver Birch is has a more silver bark. Silver Birch leaves are more triangular with a pointed tip, while Downy leaves have more rounded leaves and a less pointed tip. We went outside to the green at the front of the school to study the Birch Trees there and see whether they were Downy or Silver Birch!
