Electricity in Action

These budding scientists worked together to create something to help stop the hero of our story from being afraid of the dark. They used excellent problem solving and team work to create a circuit that lit up a light bulb. Well done!

How do our decisions and actions affect the way we and others feel?

We used role play to explore this question. 
"Why don't you watch where you're going?"
"You are horrible!"
"Hey, be careful! You might hurt someone, or yourself!"
"It was just an accident. We normally get on ok. Let's go and play football."

We discovered that when we are feeling good about ourselves, we tend to make the right choices and the good feeling spreads, but when we are feeling bad, we make poor choices and negative feelings spread. It's important to recognise when we are feeling bad so we can make more ore effort to manage our behaviours and stay mentally healthy.

Division in Practice

We have been using the connective model to explore and consolidate our understanding of division as grouping. 

Some stunning writing

Three of our very talented writers have been working hard on their ability to 'show, not tell' their readers what their characters are thinking and feeling. They worked independently and collaboratively on these fantastic passages, changing my simple sentences into entire paragraphs. 

What do you think?
