Within class there has been lots of team work, over the past week in different lessons and in different ways. The children have worked together to become experts on different biomes in Canada. They have also worked on partner balances in PE – some of which were a little tricky. Also they have carried out group investigations in science where they were ‘predators’ and had to ‘hunt prey’. In Literacy, children have also worked with partners to identify and discuss different suspense techniques, which writers use to keep the reader on the edge of their seats. Sharing learning often makes it more fun and encourages the children to engage much more.
Last week the class had a visit from the Fire Service as part of their staying safe in Winter campaign. Ask your child to tell you about some of the ideas that were shared.
