A huge thank you to Gabriel and his family for sharing some of the cool activities they have been up to this week! His mum told me: The planets all have a value up to 5. We roll the dice and multiply that with the number of the planet it hits. If you get it right, you win the planet. If you hit the sun, you get burned and miss your turn. The winner is the one with the most planets at the end. What a great idea and again thanks for sharing - what has everyone else been up to this week? Miss Scadden
If you have come into the classroom over the last few weeks you would have seen the progress of our abstract art influenced by Sandra Silberzweig, They were a long progress where the students had to work carefully at each stage - sketching, outline gluing and colouring in. They are now up on our walls and looking amazing. Come on it and admire them!
!Every week we watch Mystery Doug where he answers all sorts of questions sent in by students from around the world. This week's video was about how a rainbow is formed. After watching it we used our class prism to see the refraction of the white light ourselves and then with old CDs practiced angling the light to project rainbows on the walls. As you can see from the photos the students really got into making larger and rainbows outside!
