It was very wet and windy this morning, but last week the sun was shining! We decided to go outdoors for our maths lesson. We all had a clipboard and worksheets with questions about things we could see in the playground. Everyone in the class really enjoyed maths that day and we learned loads too!
Here is a video we made to remind us about the great time we all had learning outside. please leave a comment to let us know what you think.
We hope that everyone who visits our blog has a very lovely Christmas! Today we joined up with Primary 4D and sang ‘Away in a Manger’. Ross, Casey-Jo, Katie and Aaron played the Bell Plates while we were singing. We added our singing to some of our Winter Pictures we’ve been colouring in class.
Have a look below …… and we’ll see you all again in 2014!!
For homework we were asked to find out about our past. We all interviewed our mums and dads to find out about our life before we started school. We also brought in some photographs of important events (if we had them). We used the information to write our Autobiographies.
Here’s what we did:
We added the answers to our questions to Powerpoint slides
We inserted our photographs of the events (if we didn’t have photographs, we looked for clipart images to use)
We used a big font for the writing to make it stand out
We saved the individual slides as jpegs
We added all our individual jpegs to Windows Movie Maker
We edited the timings to make sure that the writing in the jpegs was there long enough to be read
We even added some music so that people can listen to it as they watch our autobiography movies
Have a look at some of them here and let us know what you think. They’re also going to be appearing on our individual ePortfolio blogs.
Last week, Primary 3 had the job of re-telling the stories in their reading books. Each group planned out the story, then made the scenes out of modelling clay. We took pictures of the scenes, recorded our narrations then uploaded everything to Windows Movie Maker.
All the groups have completed theirs now and they are on here for you to have a look at. Please let us know what you think of our first attempt at making Digital Stories!
Group 1 – Yummy Scrummy!
Group 2 – Webster’s Week
Group 3 – The Little Dragon
Group 4a – Yo Ho Ho
Group 4b – Yo Ho Ho
Group 5 – The Football Accident (this group made up their own story!)
Today in class we made Friendship Cinquains. A cinquain is a five lined poem that follows a pattern. First of all we interviewed a friend to find out how they would describe themselves. We also asked them what their hobbies were and what makes them a good friend. We used the information to help us write the poems. We even asked them if they had a nickname to add to the last line of the poem!
Have a look below to see how they turned out ……. and leave us a comment to let us know what you think of our work 🙂
