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!
We were learning about narrative writing in Room 15 and decided to write fractured fairy tales for our friends in 2nd class.
It was great fun to come up with the ideas and to write our stories but we really enjoyed sharing them with our friends in 2nd class.
All four second classes have been talking turns hosting X-factor. It’s been great fun watching all the talent in second class!
Last Tuesday, second class went to Pine Forest up in the mountains. It was pouring rain but that didn’t stop us having lots of fun! We did lots of things including making a fish tea light holder out of clay and a monster bookmark.
The 5th class children in Room 1 and the 2nd class children in Room 8 joined together for paired reading. They had lots of fun reading to each other and being read to!
The 2nd class pupils had great fun in Woolywards Farm!!
Maths competition between Room 8 and Room 12. It was a close match but Room 12 won by one point. Well done!
The boys and girls in Room 5 were making new maths games and went to the second classes to play the games with them.
Everybody had great fun learning maths through new games and activities.
Mark is a vet and today he visited 2nd class. We learned all about his work and he showed us pictures of some of the animals that he has helped. It was very interesting and we enjoyed asking him questions.
Room 8 (2nd class) and Room 15 (5th class) got together to do some art together.
Room 15 were learning about procedural writing and write instructions about how to make a cool Christmas decorations. Then Room 8 were invited to their room to complete the procedure with their new friends from 5th class.
We learned lots about each other and hope to do something together sometime soon.
