We have all settled back into school really quickly and have been thinking hard about what we would like to do in order to learn about our topic of the Winter Olympics. When we have been planning what we want to do we have had to carefully consider The Four Purposes, which we found quite challenging.
Before we can start our work on the Winter Olympics we have to complete a Thrive project on heroes. We have discussed the characteristics and types of heroes before creating our own imaginary hero. We have also designed a habitat for our hero's which we will begin to make next week - we can't wait!
The New Year
Over the past few weeks we have been learning new things about each other. We have been doing lots of work on our spelling and presentation and establishing new routines.
Our topic focus has been related to our Science so far. We have been learning about parts of flowering plants and will be looking next at pollination.
Beat Boxing Fun
We have been having lots of fun with Dean, our visiting professional Beat-boxer. We have been learning how to make and link lots of different beat-boxing sounds. As well as working collaboratively in 'Beat Box choirs' some of us have taken part in 'Beat Box Battles'. During our sessions we have also been writing and performing raps about 'Evil Humpty' who is a character that we have been using in our mini-mystery stories.
The Digital World at Waunfawr Primary
