Elder Class 17th October to 20th October 2022

Our learning this week:

In maths this week we are learning to use estimating and mental methods to solve questions; reason from known number facts; find equivalent fractions; simplify fractions.

In English this week we are learning to use hyphens; write a discussion text.

In science this week we are learning to explain why shadows are the same shape as the object that cast them.

Our big question this week is ‘What does it mean to feel regret? How does it feel?’

Elder class had their last rehearsal with Annie and practised their final scene. The play is really coming together and the class are working really hard.


We had some more presentations from the class. They all spoke beautifully and showed how much they have learned. 


Elder class have started their unit of work on fractions. They brainstormed everything they know about fractions!

In science, Elders did a light bingo quiz. They had to get a classmate to answer each of their questions. Great co-operation seen.


Then they investigated how to change the size of shadows.
