Finally, please read with your child every night, ask them questions about the story to develop their comprehension skills and have them re-read the story to build fluency and pace.

Frozen

This term our class topic is 'Frozen!' We are lucky to have Matilda in our class who's Dad is a scientist! Allessandro has just begun a quest across the Atlantic Ocean in the James Cook ship. Before Alessandro left he visited the school and spoke to the children about his quest. The children asked Alessandro many questions which he will be answering throughout his trip on his blog. If you would like to keep updated with Alessandro's trip, follow this link: https://ga13fridge.wordpress.com/ 

We will be following Alessandro's trip and doing lots of work about it in class too! We are excited to learn about other famous explorers and follow the life of an Arctic penguin. For more information about our curriculum this term, please read the curriculum information sheet below.

 

"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you!"

 

Stay posted for our upcoming trip to the Anglican Cathedral!

MGL World

MGL provides schools with solutions that support the creative and dynamic use of technology. MGL came to visit our class on Friday, it was so exciting! We used an app and a special icon t-shirt to look inside the human body. We also used apps called bee bot and blue bot to create an algorithm. We used our problem solving skills to program toys and reach a destination so that we could move onto the next level. MGL will be visiting our class fortnightly until Christmas to really make our class topics come alive with the support of innovative technology. 

 

"You're off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!"

Our Trip To The Museum of Liverpool

As you can see from the photographs above, we had a brilliant time on our trip. We learnt so much about what Liverpool was like in the past and compared it to what it is like now. We got to explore 'Little Liverpool' and dance the morning away to The Beatles! After lunch we got involved with the 'I like to move it!' workshop. Our tour guide, Chris showed us old transport we used to travel in around Liverpool. 

Read the riddle below and guess which transport we are describing...

  • Across the water I can go, but only when the wind does blow.
  • I stretch up tall and reach the sky, I lift the cargo low to high.
  • I have windows, doors and wheels of course, but to make me move I need a horse.
  • Steaming quickly along the track, I carry people there and back. 
  • Strong legs make my wheels go round, I ring my bell to make a sound.
