February 24, 2010

Planets of the space group

We have been working on a project about space .

First we planned it on a sheet of paper.
Day one research about space on the internet .
Day two finding pictures google images and comp-fight,the pictures were on space.
Day three we started the power point on space.
Day four we got some photos on the camera and put it on the power point.
Day five finishing the power point.
After that it was half term,day six we practiced   presenting the power point it went really well for a couple of days.
We are almost finished.


Space is a very dark place .It has billions of stars, there are lots of planets. Us the space group we have only done some of the planets.

what we have done?

We have done lots of things for our project.One of the things is building
up a power point together.The other thing is we have learned how to make clay models.The one very important thing is that we learned that animals don’t exist on other planets out of space.

Click the picture to visit our explanations website. Why not use the ‘Discussion’ link to write a comment on each one…?

LAT: Version of Goldilocks and the three bears

February 2, 2010

In learning agreement time a few children in 4oq and 4fp made a play called Goldilocks and the three Bears. It took two weeks to plan about where we were doing it  and how we were arranging  it  and what props we needed and who was what character. it was very hard but we managed it in the end. One person was a narrator and one was a Directar and there was a daddy bear, mummy bear, baby bear.
Why don’t you have a look at the picture see what you think?
