The children have been very busy in 2nd, 3rd and 4th Class over the past few weeks since we returned to school after the Easter holidays! Ms. Delaney taught the children for 2 weeks and did so many fun things with the class!
In Geography, the children learned all about the Weather. They learned about the various clouds in the sky and made examples of them on the following sheets.
They recorded the weather on a particular day and measured the temperature, looked at the types of cloud in the sky, checked the wind speed and direction and discussed the best clothes to wear on this particular day.
In Science, the children worked in pairs to investigate which magnets were the strongest. They recorded their findings on a sheet and drew and labelled their work!
In SPHE, the children discussed “Bullying” amongst their peers. To get the message across that we do not tolerate any bullying behaviours, the children designed posters to display in the classroom.
To mark National Space Day, we learned about the life of an astronaut in space. We watched videos on how they sleep, prepare food and work! We then had to devise our own list of things that we would bring to space if we had the chance to go and drew an astronaut with their suit on. Did you know a spacesuit costs more than $15,000,000 for every astronaut?
We read a poem called “Planet Roll Call” and talked about the various planets in our solar system.
In Visual Arts, we designed “Crazy Hair Day” pictures!
We learned about “Pointillism” and created homes and houses using this technique.
And finally, we made “Turtles” by weaving around lollipop sticks!
Well done on all your hard work over the past number of weeks boys and girls!
