What a week!
What a great start to the year we have had! We have spent time getting to know one another, finding out about our interests; we have organised the classroom and noticeboards; we have collated our ideas about how to make our classroom a happy and positive place for learning; we have created portraits of ourselves to make ourselves feel welcome and we have refined our understanding of place value in Mathematics.
Here's chart to help you practise:
In addition to the above, we have started to identify our learning strengths and explore the different ways that people learn. Phew!
Our learning task is to find out about how others learn. It would be great if you could ask your parents or brothers and sisters their views on learning and type their opinions into the comment box below.
Here are some questions that you may ask:
1. What is learning?
2. What is the most important thing about learning?
3. What did you enjoy learning about?
4. What makes someone a successful learner?
Remember to thank your interviewee for their time and giving their responses!
ECA Sign-up Reminder!
The ECA system will go live for sign-ups on Monday August 27th at 12 noon and will be open until Friday Aug 31st at 12 noon. So, remember to ask your parents to sign you up via the Parents' Gateway.
Do remember it is a preferences based system and is not first in first served.
Have a lovely weekend 4W and come back relaxed, full of energy and ready for learning on Monday morning.
New Year, New Class
Welcome everyone to the 4W class weblog. Here you'll be able to keep up to date with what we are learning in class and share your thoughts and ideas.
We have had a fantastic first day in school. It was wonderful to be greeted with such happy, smiley faces this morning, even if there were some feelings of nervousness, too. By the end of the day this anxiety had all disappeared.
By the end of the day everyone had spoken to at least one person they hadn't spoken to before. Over the coming weeks we will be carrying out lots of activities together so that we really get to know our classmates.
We have enjoyed our first class photograph and look forward to many more!
2W are very excited about the Sleepover. School's finished, ECA's are done ... now it's time to relax!
