The last couple of weeks have seen us focusing on fractions. For instance, “which fractions are equivalent to three quarters?”, or “how many more thirds to make one whole?”
Earlier in the term, we enjoyed making Beeswax wraps with Mrs McLeish. It was fascinating to watch the beeswax pellets melting in the oven and forming a protective layer around our cloths. It was also a great application of our learning in science around liquids and solids.
We had a great time performing our items for the Music Festival. The thrill of an evening performance was great for the kids, and there’s no question that we were justified in having our own performance, separate from the College.
Our visit to the Stardome Observatory, stimulated a lot of good learning. In class, we followed up the visit by looking further into some of the questions that arose such as, “what causes the seasons?”, and “how many different sorts of constellations are there”?
Breakers Basketball Sessions
Class Korora have very much enjoyed the basketball sessions we’ve had the last couple of weeks, led by Coach C. Before the sessions many of the students thought dribbling was something you only did with a mouthful of saliva, but are now much more adept at basketball skills.
