During maths time we have been learning how to create and interpret pictographs.
Super writers and mathematicians at work....
On Friday we held our Student Council speeches. Children that were interested in representing the class on the Student Council were asked to prepare a short speech including an introduction of themselves and to outline reasons why they thought they could do a great job. We then asked some gruelling questions such as, fundraising ideas, which charities to support and so on. The candidates did an amazing job and were very articulate in their thinking.
Our reading programme will be up and running. Some children will be coming home with a book to read and others will be independent readers. It is advised that at least 20 minutes per night is beneficial. Thank you with your support with this.
The homework blog is up and running. Homework books will be coming home on Monday with spelling and basic facts.
On Tuesday evening we have our school picnic tea on the front field, It would be lovely to see you there.

Week 2 Term 1
On Tuesday mornings we have I.C.T. and library time. Our little buddies from Room 10 come to join us. We help them to select books for themselves and their class.
We have been looking at the art work of a Dutch artist by the name of Piet Mondrian. At one time, Mondrian painted realistic landscapes, but as he painted more and more, his style began to change. He started to create abstract images. Eventually, Mondrian's style consisted of geometric shapes and primary colors. After all, every shape can be created from the basic geometric shapes and every color can be created from the primaries - red, yellow and blue. We used tuxpaint to explore some of his themes.
