Halloween is nearly here!
In Early Year this week we have been learning about the Halloween holiday and the different characters that we might find to help us celebrate!
We had a fun and adventurous outing to the park with Year 1 & 2. We identified different Autumnal materials and investigated the difference between the trees and their leaves.
In PSED we have been exploring our differences and have been doing activities to further forge our friendships in the class.
Primary, this week the weather has brought Autumn to the front of our minds. In Primary we’ve learned an autumn song, been out to collect different leaf types and think about the different types of trees they come from. In Literacy we have been working on forest and Autumn vocabulary ready for our trip next week. We’ve also been working on writing descriptions of our houses, and talking about our favourite parts of the house. In Maths we’ve been skip counting and working on number sequences.We ended the week by making some big Autumn murals, mucky, fun and colourful!
In Secondary, in English this week we have been working on creating suspense in our stories by using short, sharp sentences. We’ve also started with some spelling lists and some personal reading in English. We have started getting ready our project presentations for next week and the decorations for the event.
In History we have been doing initial assessments to identify any gaps in our knowledge and to set the baseline before commencing our chapter in the Middle Ages. We have learned how to order time periods chronologically and also how to work out centuries from year dates. We have looked at when the Middle Ages were and what happened during the Medieval era before we start focusing on specific events.
In Geography we are studying our Earth and before doing so, we have looked at where exactly Earth is in relation to other planets. We have compared our planet with the others in our solar system and have been doing really interesting small group projects in particular planets which we will use in a mini presentation in class next week.
