In Room 1 we have been busy learning a variety gym routines that we will be performing at the Gym Festival later this term. For Writing we have been looking at "writing to entertain" and focusing on adventure stories. So far we have learnt about how to include a good hook at the beginning of our writing and how to write a good character description. Some actives we enjoyed this week were sorting hooks into effective and not effective hooks and looking at a variety of characters and brainstorming interesting descriptions for them. We were also very excited to finish our class novel "holes" this week, we are now watching the movie to find the similarities and differences between the movie and the book.

It was a very fun day in the senior school yesterday. The children who weren't participating in the Palmerston Sports Exchange enjoyed a creative ICT and science day with Miss Hubac and Mrs McKeever. They spent the morning making fancy magazine pages on the laptops and experimenting with circuits in a science rotation.
In the afternoon they used the iPads to create exciting movie trailers. The teachers were very impressed with their great team work and drama skills. Some children created a trailer for an action movie and others chose different genres such as horrors and fairy tales.

Learning Environments Inquiry
Throughout the term we have been learning all about the different types of learning and what a good learning environment needs to be like. In groups some of the children have created these google forms to find out about the learning types and needs in our classroom. We are going to be analysing the results and using them to make decisions about how we need to set up our learning environment for next term

Camp Movie

Below is the camp movie that the Year 6 students created to show you what we got up to at camp. Hope you enjoy!!

Inquiry group work.jpg
Thursday 28th February
This week in Room 1 we have been working together in groups for inquiry to find out what we already know about good learning environments. We have been looking at different things that have an impact on our learning and deciding how much of an affect things such as time, temperature, sound, light and music can have on how we learn. We have also completed some questionnaires online to help each other work out whether we learn best buy seeing, hearing, or doing things!

For statistics we have begun our independent statistics investigations. We are using the statistics investigation process to help us collect, sort, present then analyse our data.
