For Random Acts of Kindness Week, we chose to write a letter to one of our classmates. In our letters, we wrote why our classmate is a great person, what we like about them, what they are really good at and why they are a great friend. We really enjoyed writing our letters as well as receiving one. It’s really nice to read a letter about ourselves and the nice.
Welcome back to our Class Blog in 2020! We have been very busy in our first month back this new year. In English, we are focusing on procedural writing. We had great fun writing a procedure on ‘How to make our Teacher Happy.’We came up with some great ideas in our class! We have also been learning the poem ‘All My Great Excuses’. It is about a boy who is.
In Room 6 we are very excited for Halloween. We have been working hard creating friendly monsters for our Halloween art. We looked at different monster images and then we practiced creating our own monster in our sketch pads. When we were happy with our own monster, we drew it on our canvas in pencil and went over the outline in black marker. We decided that if we used two.
In room 6, we have done different activities that help us look after our well-being. We have made colourful posters showing things we are grateful for. We have displayed them on our well-being wall with pride. We also complete our Gratitude Diary in class everyday which helps us to remember the good parts of our day. In art, we created our own unique stones which we painted and wrote positive.
Pond Dipping When we went to the bog we did pond dipping. Pond dipping is where you have a big net and you dip it into a pond to catch insects. Insects live in the pond. After we caught the insects we separated them and classified the different types. Then we let them back into the pond. It was a lot of fun! (By Ecaterina and Marvellous) Catching Frogs.
We walked nearly 5km to the cinema and back. It was a cool experience to walk with the whole school. The movie was called Dumbo. It was fiction but it had real people and real elephants. The ears were animated. There was about 250 children in the cinema. It was a lot of fun. The movie was really good but a little bit sad. By Majus and Alex
Earlier in the year we planted some tomatoes and some peas. Before we grew them we learned how to grow them. We put a bit of soil in our pots, then we plopped some seeds on top. We put a bit more soil over them, watered them and..VOILA!! When we had planted them we them on the window-sill so they could get sunlight to grow. We watered them everyday.
Last week ducks came to visit our class. When the ducks came in we pushed our tables together and the 6th classers placed newspaper on our tables so the ducks wouldn’t poo all over the tables. The ducks were so fluffy and golden. The 6th classers said if you hold the ducks and rub the back of their necks they would go to sleep. It was so fun having.
