Class Assembly

Today was Class 2's class assembly. We shared the story about The Colour Monster. We said a poem. We sang and we danced. Thank you to everyone who came and watched.

This week we have been learning about dinosaurs. 

Today we took our mathematics outside to find out how long some of the dinosaurs were.

First we chose a dinosaur...

Picture 1
then we checked its length. We drew a line with chalk to start from and then measured the length with the trundle wheel. When we got to the right number of metres we drew another line with the chalk.
Picture 1
We wrote the number of metres next to the chalk line and the name of the dinosaur.

Next we unravelled a ball of string from the first chalk line to the last to see how long it was. Then we lay down end to end along the string to see how many children we'd need to be as long as each dinosaur.

We started from the same chalk line for each dinosaur we measured so that we could compare their lengths. We did a lot of talking about longer and shorter and we could explain our thinking.

This week the rain has made our digging area really boggy! What a good job we keep our waterproof suits in school all week!

We love the mud and it is really good for us to play in it. Playing in mud...

Makes us feel happy.

Boosts our immune systems so we don't get sick so often and have fewer allergies.

Means we have to practise our communication skills so we can cooperate, negotiate and share with each other.

Helps us feel connected to nature and our environment.

Develops our creativity.

Works our muscles to improve our gross motor and then fine motor skills.
