This morning our 6th Classes put on their wonderful Christmas Concert for the whole school. They did a fantastic job and it was a lovely festive way to start the Christmas break!
We hope everyone has a Happy & Peaceful Christmas.
We really enjoyed performing our Christmas play for our parents in Mr McDonagh's Fifth class :) Happy Christmas everyone!!
We have been learning how to write a letter in English Writing recently. We thought it would be a fun activity to practice our letter writing skills and write a short recount to a secret buddy in our class. Teacher used the electronic hat to pick out a buddy for us ! We posted our letters today and we can't wait until our pen pals receive their letters in the post just before Christmas!
Just like the elves from our play 'Santa's on Strike' we have been busy working on our Christmas Art in Room 14! We made Christmas jumpers out of felt and we are using them as props in our play. We also made some Christmas Trees based on Kandinsky's Circle Art. Finally we painted Rudolf on a snowy Christmas Eve on A3 paper. We really enjoyed doing Christmas Art - take a look at our masterpieces!!
We have been looking at examples of report writing over the past few weeks. We learned that reports give us factual information and don't require our opinion! We learned that a report has many sub-headings also such as classification, description etc. We edited our reports with Ms. Fox and Ms. Wheeler and these are examples of our published work!
The boys and girls in 6th Class worked together on science experiments during science week. These experiments were then presented in a science fair attended by other classes and teachers last week. Projects on topics ranging from submarines to water vacuums and mixing liquids to exploring tannins were presented. It was thoroughly enjoyable!!
During science week we learned about reflection and periscopes proved to be a perfect example of the law of reflection at work. We found that when light falls on a mirror at an angle it is reflected off the mirror at a similar angle. We placed our two parallel mirrors at angles of 45 degrees and so light fell on them and bounced off them at 45 degrees. The total angle through which light was turned was 90 degrees meaning we could see around a corner or look at things that were too high up to see.
