The children worked in pairs to carry out research on South America and the country Brazil. They had to apply their reading skills to be able to locatte key facts and information to record in note form. They had the challenge to find out about the following:
The children have worked together to develop their knowedlge and understanding of what happens when the two ones digits cross the boundary of ten. They used counters to model filling in a base ten before carrying into the tens column and adding it to the final answer. See them in action.
The children have been developing their skill of using a dictionary to explore the meanings of words related to out non fiction text genre in literacy. Before starting to define the technical words, the children had to identify how to use a dictionary. When looking up a word, they found that not all the words were in one dictionary and so from this, we had the discussion of what else could we use.
The children have worked in mixed pairs where they have been developing their IT skills in the unit of drawing and desktop publishing. During the session they had to do the following;
Before the children could create their own fashion piece for the Carnival, they had the task of designing and selecting their choice of colours for their t-shirt. Once designed, they got themselves prepared to create their patterns with the use of elastic bands and coloured squeezy bottles.
The t-shirts were left to dry before the elastic bands were taken off and the final drying stage took place. Whilst the shirts have been busy drying, the children have been practising their sewing skills through developing their knowledge of the following;
The children have been continuing with developing their knowledge of beats and rhythms when learning a Samba piece. During the lesson, the children practised clapping different beats and rhythms before selecting their chosen percussion instrument. When they were exploring the different parts, they had to listen carefully to the piece and each other before they could begin to play all the three part layers together. It was amazing to observe how the children worked well as a team to listen and watch each other to ensure they kept together during playing the Samba piece.
Both Team GG and Team CB took part in a cross country race at Loch Park against other schools in Barnsley. They all made Park Street Staff incredibly proud of their efforts from the start to the end of the races. From Team GG, two of the boys came in the top ten and so they will be going through into the next race. Well done, all of you, keep reaching for your goals and never stop believing in your own abilities.
The children have been busy developing their music skills of being able to differentiate between a beat and a rhythm. They have been listening to Samba music as well as begin to steadily build up the different textures and layers of a short piece of Samba music.
