Hello 4/5 parents
We will be featuring what we have been doing.
In sports day we did shuttles and then we did a teamwork hoop game when you had to pass the hoop to each other to reach the end and collect 10 points each way. After a few minutes we did some throwing at some cricket stumps if you knocked 1 down you would get 5 points. Then we done some litter picking up out of a recycling bag then we counted how much litter we collected and that’s how much points we got that round.
In English we have been planning a short story about an animal that follows us where there’s an opening, build up, dilemma, solution and ending. We also done our practice/first draft our editing and our best copy what we used pen for.
In maths we have been learning about advanced shapes and what symbols mean on them like parallel equal and others, these are some shapes we have been learning parallelogram, trapezium and rhombus.
In science we have figured out on a sheet of paper we have been locked in a lion enclosure and we had a code to figure out to get out we had a padlock code to figure out with animal question and if we got a question right it would give us one of the digits in the code if we got it right before 3 other groups we would have one lollypop each in our groups of 3.
See you next time
