In Mrs McAra’s 5th Class we have been really enjoying our 1st few weeks back to school. We had a gallery walk along the corridor which was based on a book we have been studying in our class called “The Day You Begin” by Jacqueline Woodsin. We also transformed our classroom for a book tasting morning where we got to browse a taster of some of the books from our school library. We each made a “Top Picks” list so that we can easily pick a book when we go for our weekly library slot.
We have had great fun with some team building and stem activities too. It has been a test of patients with the challenges we faced but it was fun team work.
This week we all became archaeologists, we learned how difficult a dig can be and just how delicate artifacts are. We each excavated a chocolate chip cookie using toothpicks as our tool. This was tricky work to try conserve the artifacts (chocolate chips).
We look forward to a fun filled 5th Class year, it’s defoff to a great start.
