Welcome back to everyone and here’s to a very happy, healthy 2015. Here’s our first blog of 2015 and the whole class did it this week.
This week we have started our new topic – the industrial revolution. At first we didn’t have a clue what it was but Mrs Johnston asked us what ‘industrial’ meant and then asked us what ‘revolution’ meant – after that we had a good discussion about it.
We learned about an American artist, Daniel Patrick Kessler, and drew our own versions of his cat and dog pictures. We learned that art can be simple when it is made up of shapes we know how to draw. Look out for our display next time you’re in school.
We’re doing shape in maths and learning about different types of lines, triangles, lines of symmetry and reflections. This is a nice change from addition and subtraction but we’re also doing some multiplication and times table work too.
We had to write a breakfast recipe for homework this week and our comprehension work was based around 4 different recipes. We’re thinking about how important a healthy breakfast is and we are also using our ICT time to design a breakfast recipe booklet. Some of us have been encouraged to cook more and to try different things to eat in the morning.
In PE we are doing gymnastics with Mrs Walls which is really fun, epic, amazing but some of us find it a bit boring because it’s on mats but hopefully the wall bars will come out soon.
