14 Days Until Christmas

We have been very busy with Christmas related activities in R5. We have been using the Literacy Shed videos as inspiration for our writing. Here are two adverts from John Lewis.

Today we used our senses to write poems about Christmas. We published these poems in many different ways. Here is some of our finished work.

Koito's Arcade Game

Koito was inspired by Caine to create this arcade shooting game. It is really hard to get the paper ball in the hoop.

One of the features of her game is that you shoot the ball from a distance that is age dependent.

Here are Zephaniah and Brooke giving it a go.

Jacob's Transformer

Check out this amazing Google drawing of Optimus Prime that Jacob has created with a Chromebook touch pad!

Whale Evolution

We have been learning about the evolution of cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises). Did you know that cetaceans are the marine mammal descendants of land mammals? Jacob created this awesome illustration of what he learnt.

Here is one of the videos we looked at as part of our learning.
