5th class in Room 7 have been working hard in preparation for the Globe project. We are investigating air pollution around our school. We are waiting for the results of our investigation from the research laboratory. To help us with our investigation we decided to construct a wind vane and a wind anemometer. We worked together in groups to plan and construct our chosen project. We’re looking forward to using our constructions as part of the Globe project.
Today in PE we did an outdoor and adventure activity by completing a geography trail. We were in teams of 4. We had lots of questions and had to find the answers around the school grounds. It was great fun!
It was ‘Australia Day’ on Monday. Alex’s granny sent us stickers all the way from Australia. We found Australia on the map and looked at the Australian flag. Freya and Evie told us that their grandparents live in Australia too. Happy Australia Day everyone!
We have started working on our projects all about the Titanic. We will update you when we have our projects completed. Ava drew a fantastic picture of the Titanic. Check it out below!
Today in second class we have been learning all about emperor penguins. They live in the Antarctic. Weather in the Antarctic is cold and the temperate can go as low as -60 degrees Celsius.
Emperor penguins are the largest penguin species. They are nearly 4 feet tall and weigh up to 90 pounds. On their cheeks they have an orange glow. The mummy penguin lays the egg and then goes off fishing. The daddy penguin keeps the egg warm for 9 weeks. When the chick is born the mummy comes back to feed it and the dad goes off fishing.
In fourth class we are learning about money. Here is a great game to convert euros to cents and vice versa. CLICK HERE
There are a number of games on the EURO at TeachingMoney.co.uk
We have learned that there are many different currencies around the world. A currency is the type of money used for different countries.
We also learned that there are 20 countries that use the Euro.
By having the same currency all of these countries have a close economic relationship. We can also travel to any of these countries and use the same money (currency).
Check out the Google map of it HERE.
