We have had a great deal of fun in class this term. We have produced our own Tie-dyed material that we will use to sew waistcoats for our teddies. We hope that you like them!
We have continued with our exploration of the poet Benjamin Zephaniah. The children have been performing a range of poems and have enjoyed trying to use the local dialects as the poet intended. We've had a lot of fun - even Mr W had a go!!
In reading this week, we are learning about the poetry of Benjamin Zephaniah. Today we learnt about him as a person and looked at one of his poems called 'Who's Who'. We discussed the poem and decide that the key message was that we can all be who we want to be! Take a look at some of us performing this poem.
Wow, what a first week it has been! By the end of it we were all well and truly worn out, hot under the collar (thanks to the weather) but had achieved so much. All of the children have settled so well and have shown that they are ready for the challenges which lay ahead.
We also need to say a huge well done to our Class 7 school councilors Lukas, Caleb and Casey!
In Science, we have started to learn all about forces - starting off with gravity. We explored what gravity is, how it is created and the effect it has within our solar system. We also discussed how the craters on the moon have been created and because of the lack of atmosphere how they are still clearly visible as they haven't eroded away. The children in class 7 then had a lot of fun creating their own 'craters' by choosing two different weights to see what the effect would be when a different sized masses hit the surface of 'the moon' (our tray filled with flour). We also enjoyed making quite a mess!
Here are our entries into this year's Easter egg decorating competition! I think you will agree we have some CRACKING entries. Check out the Praise Page for this year's winners. Well done to all the children who entered.
Mr Lennon has asked Class 7 children to practise the music below. Happy practising!
In science, we have started to learn about circuits and conductors. To refresh our memories of circuits and their components, the children were given the challenge of creating different circuits from picture cards. They had to work out what components were needed to build the circuits. The children also noticed that we were S.T.A.R.S throughout the investigation as they were resilient (those crocodile clips can be pesky to open!) and supportive of each other's ideas. Well done class 7!
Here is our learner of the week for 20.1.23. This super lady achieved Learner of the Week for being an enthusiastic learner and always helping others
