We had a quick look back on our week and this was what came up during our discussions!
Freya said we had an exciting lesson with Moneysense and Mrs Stevenson where we planned and budgeted our own parties. We then had to make up presentations using Power point and the internet which we presented to the class. Everyone did completely different parties and spent different amounts, all within our budgets. We learned a lot about money, budgeting and working in a team. We all got goodie bags and a class piggy bank which we have named ‘Mr Chops’.
Molly remembered we started to create a trim trail for the playground which is a fitness trail. We split into groups and thought about different activities we could do which would exercise different parts of the body. We’re also doing some football training in PE with Mrs Cameron.
Zara added that in PE with Mrs Johnston we’ve been doing circuit training. In groups of 3 we were given some equipment (like a mat or some cones) and we had to create an activity for the class to do. We also had to think about which muscles were being exercised and what skills were being developed.
Alyssa enjoyed our lesson on graphic scores and thought it was fun making up our own instruments using classroom objects and then writing our own short piece of music in our group. We used the brand new visualiser which let the rest of the class see our graphic score while we were performing!
Blair suggested we talk about the point of homework this week so we had a debate. Both sides battled hard to put their points across and lots of us came up with very good and sensible arguments.
Oli mentioned about doing comprehension outside this week and remembered it was all about asking questions and the difference between open and closed questions – Georgia remarked it was so much more fun and it was easier because we got to talk and listen rather than the usual reading and writing!
