Primary 6M have settled well into their new school year and have already been hard at work this term. In Literacy we have been developing our spelling, grammar and comprehension skills. We have used these skills to write poems and mystery stories which we have been so excited about. We have used our local environment and our senses as a basis for these and have loved being out and about around our school. In Numeracy we have been working hard on our mental arithmetic and table skills as well as measurement. We were estimating the height, length and width of items in our classroom and playground. We even had the pleasure of estimating and measuring the height of our principal Miss Peters! 3 of our pupils even guessed the correct height to the nearest cm! We are developing our ICT skills in the use of Microsoft applications and photo apps such as pic collage. In WAU we have been studying all about the Victorian period, learning about Queen Victoria, the British Empire and what life was like during that time. We loved dividing a photo of her majesty up and individually completing a tile each and were enthralled when the final portrait was revealed. It really goes to show that many hands make light work and team work divides the task yet multiples the success! Well done to my ‘Stars of the Week’ and you all in your success so far this year!
