On Monday, we started to plan and decorate our class doors in a jungle theme to go with our book. If you come and visit the Milepost 3 corridor you'll find you have to dodge monkeys, tigers and bear, oh my!
During the week, different learning facilitators shared stories at lunchtime that the learners enjoyed. On Thursday morning, the learners had the opportunity to choose to visit a different class and hear a story in a different language. We had Chinese, Bahasa Malaysia, Dutch, German, Spanish, Khmer, French and Sinhalese. Here are some of the things our learners said about the experience:
Tina: I liked how at the end I got to speak in Chinese to other people who can also talk Chinese (Miss Mei).
Signe: I liked how Ms Beverley wrote down the words first and then when she read we knew some of the words already.
Daffyd: I liked that it was a book I kinda knew but in a different language (Miss Sofia).
Congratulations to our Milepost 3 costume winner, Nina dressed as Gangsta Granny.
We all know that fairground rides are designed to thrill our senses, through fear, excitement and the unexpected. How are these rides powered in a way which enables them to speed up and slow down at just the right moments, whilst staying on a track that twists upside down? These mysteries will be revealed as we learn more about the science behind energy, forces, sound and light.
For our Entry Point we worked in our home base teams to create fairground rides out of junk. We were really imaginative and creative with our ideas and created some great rides! We are now very excited to learn about our new unit!
During our Knowledge Harvest we thought about: our senses at the fairground; what forces might act on the rides; any questions we would like answered this unit and what connections there are between different rides. We know some things already but there is SO much more still to learn!
