Whilst year 4’s were playing Dodgeball the year 5″s spoke to Estelle in Sydney Australia.
We then completed our investigations.
Global Week ended with a lovely school meeting.
Well done everyone, another fantastic Global Week 😀
This morning we based our research around this website:
We found out about scientists like-
Dr Isobel Eliza Toom Bennett was one of the most famous Australian marine biologists. In 1933 she became the secretary of the University of Sydney Professor of Zoology, William John Dakin. Consequently, as a research assistant she participated with Professor Dakin and Professor P.D.F. Murray in numerous research projects all around the world and became an expert on Australian marine life and the ecology of the Great Barrier Reef. Dr Bennett took part in the first study of plankton in Australian waters.
We also talked to a friend of Mrs Chapman who lives in Sydney Australia. We asked her questions that we had prepared on Monday.
It was 8pm Thursday and it was 29c… Very hot! She lives near Harbour Bridge and she is also near the Opera House.
She lives right next to a beach!
She also told us about poisonous animals.
Most of the year 5’s have been out at a football tournament where they all had a good time.
In the afternoon we looked at Australian Native Plants and Animals and made these Poplets on the iPad…
We have also been compiling all this information in word documents on the laptops and keeping notes in our morning activity books. Mrs Chapman is going to try to put this all together in a Global Week Book!
We are looking forward to Friday…
Today we had to solve Rugby World Cup related problems.
“How could they have scored their points?”
We then had our first Multiplication Awards of the year…
Congratulations Rjay for getting your Super Bronze!
Everyone else tried their hardest.
After lunch we had the iPads so we went on Mathletics.
Then we used Telegarmi to record our versions of Window.
Finally we looked at the teams National Flags and spotted lines of symmetry.
Oops, there seems to be some confusion over dates so just to clarify…
Our Anglo Saxon feast is on Wednesday 21st October at 1:30pm.
Parents evenings are also next week – Tuesday and Wednesday.
It is Global Week this week and we are doing Multiplication Awards this week. There is a school meeting to round off the week, 2:30pm on Friday.
