This week in 5C we were surprised to find our Avocado plant growing so well! We originally sprouted it from an avocado pit during our seed germination experiments. We also have a new class mascot – Bob the snail, found miraculously in Ryan’s pocket!
A bit of art work will be happening in the the classroom while Holly Carr is here presenting and using the art room. Students are hard at work making their paper mache animals come to life.
While we don’t get to work one on one with the artist in residence this year, 5C did get to attend one of Holly Carr’s live performances where she demonstrated painting on silk accompanied to music played by her daughter Lily.
In UoI we are analysing newspapers to better understand their layout, language and content. We hope to create our own newspaper pages from different periods in history. We continue to focus on understanding the difference between fact and opinion in newspaper, and consider how we might remain objective despite any bias that we might have.
In math we are inquiring into the differences between surface area and volume, and will continue to do so next week.
Today we also celebrated Alan Dick Community Day at school with a great show of spirit and friendship!
