This week in maths we explored line symmetry and created symmetrical pictures of famous landmarks in Europe. We then used our knowledge of angles and symmetry to think about the different properties of 2D shapes. Today some of our parents came into the class help us during our maths rotations and talk about what we have been learning. It was really fun to share this with them.
In P.E we were developing our Basketball and Volleyball skills. In Basketball this involved learning to dribble, defend and pass the ball using a chest pass. With Volleyball we were trying to keep the ball in the air without letting it hit the ground.
In literacy we have been writing imaginative stories. To learn more about the characters we created we hot seated them; asking them about their hopes and fears. Everyone really enjoyed letting their imagination run WILD. We are planning to enter our stories into BBC Radio 2’s 500 word competition!! So next week we are going to begin to edit them.
This news report has came to you from Arran and Lewis.
We hope you have a great weekend!
