Swimming - Life Saving

The children are enjoying an hour session of stroke development and life saving skills. They will sleep well this week! 😃

Standard of Work

Our daily timetable has been a huge success. However, there is always room for improvement! One area is the quality of work we produce. Some of us are flying through the work and the standard can be improved. To help us meet the standard we are creating a criteria together and mark ourselves against it. 

Science Mad!

Google Form for roll and Daily Maths Assessment

With everyone in Room 20 having personalised learning programmes it is very difficult to get us together for the roll so Mr Bailey created a Google Form for us to complete. He also sneaks in a maths assessment to help decide who he will work with.

Science Inquiry

For our science inquiry this term we are entering a competition.  The children have to inquire into an experiment, make it engaging, record it and send it in. The video has a strict criteria including following the science process of purpose, research, hypothesis, analysis and conclusion.
We are currently exploring lots of different experiments and discussing how it fits with the science process. We also want to make sure it looks exciting on a video!

Useful Chrome Extension

We found a wonderful Chrome extension which helps us in lots of ways. Everything we open a tab it reminds us of the time and our focus for the day. It also has a to do list and most importantly it's pretty!!

Personalized Spelling

We are exploring possibilities to help us take control and have choice in how we learn. Room 20 are trying out Grade Spelling as a way of personalizing our spelling so we can work on easier spelling or, like in Gaea's case, work on some pretty tough spelling! This particular website is great because the lessons include defining words which is a reading goal for many of us. Mr Bailey likes it because the results are emailed to him afterwards, he can then keep track that we are making sensible choices with the difficulty of spelling.
