This morning we continued learning about prefixes and focused on ‘un’, ‘re’, ‘dis’ and ‘mis’. We went into the hall and when Mrs Crichard called out a root word we had to run to the prefix we thought would go at the beginning of the root word. We found that more than one prefix can go with a root word for example, appear can go with dis and re. After this we wrote some sentences that use words with prefixes.
This morning in grammar, we all learnt about prefixes. Prefixes are a group of letters or that you add to a root word e.g. re + member = remember.
After play, we all went on times tables rock stars to get our brains ready for the multiplication awards. A good number of us moved up a level and the rest of us had improved since last time.
We had our first rehearsal of our class assembly this afternoon but of course there’s nothing to tell you about that!
Today we used the iPads to create our own e-books using an app called Book Creator. We typed up our edited and up leveled version of Mrs Johanson’s explanation of how magnets work. After we finished the typing we got creative with our colours, fonts and inserted pictures with captions to make the e-book more appealing. We are hoping to finish these tomorrow so we can Seesaw them home.
Don’t forget that it’s Cherry Class cake break tomorrow.
Today in mathematics we learnt some more about the bar model and how it can be used to help us solve problems. We worked with addition and subtraction problems and had to work out the whole and the parts to the problem before setting up our bar (sounds tricky right!). We used the laptops to help us and by the end of the lesson we were working with 3 part problems.
This morning we explored magnetic poles and found out that magnets can attract and repel each other. If N is facing N the magnets will repel but if S is facing N then they will attract. Like poles repel but opposite poles attract. It was lots of fun getting to use the magnets again.
