Room 4 has been looking at elements and discovered they are just different types of single atoms. We found that atoms have protons, neutrons and electrons. Our next step is to create some explain everything files about specific elements and the atoms they contain.

Grace's Story

Mum can I  "help" yes" said mum. Can you please get the sugar. Mum what are we making? Mum said if we get the shapes  she will tell us yummy gingerbread men

Mum said I could roll the Dough. Me and my sister pressed the shapes into the Dough. Mum put the gingerbread into the oven and asked me “could you time them on my phone?”

While we waited. Me mum and my sister played memory. I won! Beep Beep! Went my phone.

“Mum! The gingerbread men are ready" the smell of the gingerbread men was delicious
Mum said we have got to let them cool.

We made some custard and we got some ice-cream and ate it yummy I licked my lips.

Preposition Poem

Room 3 have been studying prepositions for our writing and we wrote a small poem in class using as many different prepositions as we could think of. Here is one by Jackson

Across the farm.
Between the fence.
Onto the tractor.
Down the street.
Past the police.
Into the toilet.
Through the pipe.
Via the pipe.
Out into the opposite street.
Up into a tele-porter.
Towards the city.
Near a graveyard.
To the airport.
Aboard a plane.
Above the city.
Behind a jumbo-jet.
Along the country.
Within an hour.
Under the plane.
Near my doom.
Until I fall.
With a parachute.
Into a country.
Inside my car.
Following a villain.
Into the bank
Beside the police.
Into a jail.
Before waking up from a dream.

Swimming safely

Yesterday Room 4 had safe swimming lessons where we got to try on life jackets and practice some safe skills to do when we are in the water. We got to try out a huddle and link arms to paddle up and down the pool.

Hockey skills

Recently Room 4 has been learning the skills needed to play Hockey. We have practiced dribbling passing and even played a few games. Here are a few snaps of the action.
