‘Native Americans’ in 5th Class

The children in 5th Class have completed their projects about the Native Americans and shared them in class on Friday, 26th May. Everyone really enjoyed learning about the different Native American tribes, from the Sioux to the Apache and the Cherokee. For their projects, the pupils researched the homes, clothing, beliefs and stories of their chosen tribes, and created a piece of art work on some aspect of Native American civilisation. Check out the tipis, totem poles dream-catchers, weapons (and even a tomahawk!) created by the boys and girls in Room 23. Well done to the children on their excellent projects.

Balancing Room 10!

This week in Room 10, we’re learning all about weight. The boys and girls had a great time making their own balances which they used to measure heavy and light objects. They made their balances using clothes hangers, string and paper cups. We also practiced using real balances and played some fun maths games using ‘Glencoe Virtual Manipulatives’.

Well done everyone!
