Maths week fun in Room 8

In Room 8 we had great fun celebrating Maths Week. We had a go at solving riddles, estimating the amount of marbles in a jar, taking part in a virtual maths trail and playing lots of maths games. Here we are inventing our own maths board games. We’re looking forward to playing them next week!

Learning about colours in Room 8

In art we have been learning about the colour wheel. We used cool and warm colours to create imaginative and colourful self portraits! Can you spot the resemblances?

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!

Writing for an audience in Room 15

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.
