Week 3 Blog

This week in maths we continued learning about position and direction. Last week we went around the school and found a special spot that we had to write directions to. This week we got to swap directions and tried to find our friend’s special spot. It was lots of fun trying to find their spot.

On Tuesday we made dips for our plant party. I liked the avocado dip best. Then on Tuesday in the evening at six o’clock we had the PYP Exhibition. It was really fun and the group I liked best was Shark finning.

On Friday we learned more about alliteration. First we wrote alliteration sentences about different animals and then we made alliteration poems about ourselves. We had lots of fun making our poems.

Week 1- The week that was- By James Blakeman

Week 1 blog

This week in Maths we were learning about mass. We were finding things in the classroom and seeing how much they weighed using the scales. We were comparing the different weights of the objects and we were also seeing if the size of an object indicated if it would be heavy or light. We found that it doesn’t always matter what the size of the object is. A large box may weigh less than a small box, depending on what is inside the box.

This week we continued writing our information reports about a plant. We got to choose which plant we wanted to write about. Lots of the boys are writing about Venus Flytraps.

On Wednesday we went to the Botanic Gardens with Year 1.

First, we had a look around with our classes.

Then, we met a lady who taught us more about plants. We had a tour around the gardens and she showed us some very unique plants.

After, we got to plant our own sun flower seed.

Finally we had lunch and then went back to school on the bus.

We had a lot of fun at the Botanic Gardens and learned about many different interesting plants.
