Teamwork in Action
We have needed to use our teamwork skills a lot in our learning this week but the children have done a great job at this.
As we continue to learn about the property of shapes we have been using 2D shapes to build 3D shapes out of polygon. We are working on the understanding of the properties of 2D shapes and being able to identify them from clues.
Our book this week is Beegu, a story about an alien who has crashed on Earth. We worked in teams to discuss what is happening in different parts of the story, how this makes the character feel, what he might think and what he would say if he could speak to us. We made a mindmap of our ideas to help us with our independent writing.
Meanwhile, in Computing we are trying to improve our mouse control skills. We used the mouse pad programme on the laptops to learn how to move the mouse arrow and select with the buttons. We worked with our partner to create and complete different pictures as we develop these skills.
