Violet class have had a busy week filled with learning. In English, after reading ‘The Lost Thing’ by Shaun Tan, we have started writing our own version. Our lost things are a perfect mix of weird and wonderful. We will share some of our writing once we have finished editing and improving.
Our text, ‘Journey to Jo’burg’ has reached an important point. We are hoping that the two protagonists are able to get home in time to save their baby sister. Our diary entries show how Naledi is feeling.
In science, we conducted four experiments which helped us to learn the properties of different materials. We wanted to find out if different materials were: thermal conductors, electrical conductors, magnetic or transparent. In groups, we predicted and then tested the materials.
Our first computing lesson of the year allowed us to use the new school Chromebooks! We researched and learned all about search engines.
