We learnt about a girl called Ama from Ghana. We found out about her day to day life and compared this to ours. We learnt a lullaby sung in Ghana. It is called Senwa Dedende. Mothers in Ghana sing this to call their children back.
Here we are trying hard with our singing. It was in a different language so we had to listen carefully when we were learning it.
Here we are learning how to log on and off our Chromebooks.
We had to think of some ‘I wonders…’ about the pictures on the board. We thought of lots of questions we would like answering. The pictures showed a footprint, 3 astronauts and the moon. We talked about ways of finding out the answers to our questions. We used the clues Miss James gave us to work out which astronaut we were going to be learning about.
Have you guessed who it is?
We learnt about Vincent Van Gogh and looked at his self-portrait. We spent time looking carefully at our own faces and thinking about how we would draw each little bit.
Here we are using mirrors to help us!
This week we have learnt about our senses. We played a game, we had to show the correct action for each sense. It got harder and harder. Here we are having a go.
Mr Wilkinson introduced us to another Growth Mindset challenge this week. We had to make pictures using different shapes. It got quite tricky so we had to think hard! We tried our best and kept on going.
Last week we all went out on a weather walk around the school grounds. We looked at signs to do with the weather. Most of the leaves were still green, a couple had started to turn a yellowy colour. The sky was grey and most of us needed our coats on. We made some predictions about what might happen to our weather. We think that when we go on our next weather walk in November lots of leaves will be on the ground and they will have changed to a orange or brown colour. We might have some conkers!
