Today Mr Yr1 was revising 3D and 2D shapes so I let him loose with my hardy little Lumix which is waterproof, shock proof, dust proof and maybe even bullet proof (not trying that one out). The brilliant thing goes everywhere ... the school room, the horse yards, the dam, the cattle yards, everywhere.
Anyway back on topic this is what Mr Yr1 came up with this morning...
Mr Yr1 also had a go at copying some 3D shape towers to see if they worked. He then made some of his own towering creations with some very clever stacking skills.
Today also saw Mr Yr1 practicing ordinal numbers, making shapes with the geoboard on the computer and the practicing the letter k in handwriting. Miss Yr7 did her "best on air yet this year!" (her words not mine) because the computer only dropped out twice and had some watery science fun. Miss Yr4 and Mr Yr4 got to learn about adverbials and prepositional phrases (huh? you say ... well lets just say it is a good thing Miss Yr7 did them last year) and they also finished their first ever big chapter book that they read themselves. When asked whether they were proud of themselves for reading the whole book the reply was a resounding "YES" that was possibly tinged with a touch of relief that the book was finished. They loved the story, even feeling sorry for those silly Twits at the end.
