Scaly beast

Scaly quiet beast.
Swimming fast with a fat tail.
Big fat chomping teeth.

Clever things

They are very quiet.
They creep when you are sleeping.
They are quite scary.

Seeing its prey, starts to sneak.

How many tens?

In maths we have been learning how many tens are in a number. We used rods so we could see how many tens make up a number. Then we drew it on our whiteboards. After we took a picture with the ipad. Andrea will print the pictures to keep in our modelling books so we can go back and see it if we need to remember. Then we drew it using kid pix on our own to show that we understand it.

Weston and Elizabeth

We drew this using Kid Pix

Fitness Freaks and iMovie

We have been learning to keep fit by moving our bodies for 10 minutes everyday. When it's raining outside, we do aerobics videos. 

We are also learning how to make iMovie trailers. Trailers are the little snippets of up and coming movies. You usually see them before you watch a movie in the cinema. We made one together today. We are going to be making our own this term. We are so excited!

Enjoy the fitness and the movie trailer.

Before we take off into Space...

...Let's find out what we already know!

We did a KWL chart and recorded all the things we know or thought we knew about Space. 

A KWL chart help sort your thinking so you know what direction your learning will take.

K - What we KNOW
W - What we WANT to know/learn.
L - What we have LEARNED.

Then we recorded them using PhotoBooth and then dropped them into iMovie. 

Next we filled in the W - What we want to learn about Space. Our next step is to figure out how we will find the answers to our questions. 

When we have answered our questions then we will record our new knowledge in the L part - what we have learned. 

Please leave us a comment and share your facts about Space.
