Otters Class Blog 16.6.17

Our new topic is Dinosaurs.  We have been learning about non-fiction books and how they give us lots of information, particularly about dinosaurs.  We have found features of non-fictions texts, such as glossary, index and contents pages.  We made non-fiction booklets of our own matching sub-headings and text together.  Today we wrote captions about dinosaurs.  Zac and Laney wrote some super captions.

We have learnt about right angles in maths using a ‘Rightangleosaurus’ to measure these in and around the school.  In ICT we used a website to research dinosaurs called ‘Look, Hear!’

We have learnt about Alberto Giacometti who made sculptures.  We made our own sculptures based on his ideas.  Later we will be attempting these in tinfoil.  We also visited the Junior School and had lots of fun playing PE games with the Year 3 children and teachers.  We were very well behaved.

We received a Gold Award as a whole class for being reflective learners and thinking what makes us special.
