There is also a Fun Food Friday this week. There are more order forms in the classroom if needed.

Grant Hasting is here on Friday teaching us some more sporting skills.

Project Homework will start up again this week. This week the letter is ‘D’. Children can take any subject starting with the letter ‘D’ and find out some facts about it. It could be a place, country, animal, instrument or a person even! We love to learn new facts on any subject. Children can then present their new learning in any format they choose. They can create a poster to go on the classroom wall. They can talk about their subject, maybe they can bring it in? They could also use the computer for the project. They can create in word, power point, publisher, maybe even find a youtube video, create a wordle or a voki – the sky’s the limit! If the project is digital either email it to me, bring it in on a memory stick or put it straight onto the Room 4 Homework Wiki. The link to the wiki is on the blog and the password and username are exactly the same as the ones for Mathletics. Have a look on the Wiki (the link is on the blog) for some ideas and some ‘How to…” advice for digital projects. I am looking forward to Friday when everyone will get to present their projects to the class.
