Today as part of our friction investigations, we held a competition to see who could bring in the show with the best grip! We used the Newton meter to test the different shoes and had a draw! Both Vlad and Andreea's shoes required 1.4N (Newtons) to move! Everyone who took part received 2 dojo points and the 2 winners shared the jackpot and took 8 points each!
This week in the Beech class we have been learning all about friction. Today we completed an experiment using a Newton meter. We chose different surfaces and tested them to see which caused the most and least friction!
Well done to everyone who took part in the Beech Class Talent Show today! They put on a fantastic show and the effort that went into each performance was really clear. Unfortunately not everyone could be chosen for the School Talent Show next Friday! Congratulations to Jenna, Iga, Andreea, and Bana who will go on to represent our class next Friday! I recorded all performances and will put together a video for you all over the next day or two! I'll share it here once I have it finished!
Beech Class are performing at this week's assembly! As February is Friendship Month in PETNS, we wrote acrostic poems about friends to perform. Some of the children wanted to practice at home so I'm linking all the finished poems below!
To save the children bringing a big book home for one page, I'm just uploading a picture of what they need to complete their Gaeilge homework later this evening!
This week I gave the Beech Class an Art project with a bit of a challenge. I asked them to lightly sketch a picture depicting a Viking longship but their picture needed to tell a story. I asked them to create a piece of art where the person looking at it could try and build a story in their head. I asked them to show off details that they have learned about Vikings during class over the last few weeks.
The second challenge I gave was related to the painting. I only gave primary colours to the class and asked them to show blending and colour creation through their art. We've got some amazing pieces of art at the end of it!
Amazing work guys!
In the Beech class we've been learning about Vikings. Today we have a Viking in to talk to us about what life was like during Viking times and show us lots of Viking artifacts!
Our 2019 Talent Show is coming up fast!
Due to the amount of talented children that love to take part in our Talent Show, we have had to make some changes to the format this year. Class teachers will now be holding in-class talent shows! The winners of the class talent shows will then go forward to the school talent show which will be on stage in the hall on the 8th of February. Parents will be invited to come see the school talent show.
Class teachers will contact parents directly to inform them of the date that class talents shows will take place. These class performances will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube so parents can watch their child's performance!
Best of luck rehearsing!
