After a long holiday break, 3B children returned to school looking refreshed last Monday . Here’s an overview of what they did in class.
Class Contact Time: The Mind Reading Game
English: The Blink-off
The challengers (:
Vocab: Dictionary Search
Compo: Writing with Elaborative Details
To prepare the children for the first compo writing task of the term, theywere told a story about Batman and Robin Hood. From there, they were taught how to come up with as well as answer questions that would make readers interested in their writing. After that, they did an individual mini writing task followed by a Round Robin group activity. Judging from their presentations so far, I must say that I am certainly very impressed with them. (:
Maths: The Housewarming Party Gifts
To make the learning of addition of money more interesting, pupils were told to bring advertisment cutouts to class. Through the activity of ‘purchasing’ housewarming gifts, the children practised the skill of vertical addition. They also gained the chance to learn more about their classmates. (:
Science: Magnets, magic & more!
The little scientists went to the Science lab for the first time on Tuesday. After showing them a simple magic trick, they were challenged to create a magic show in their groups using a magnet and the materials provided. Judging from their facial expressions, they certainly had a fun time creating and presenting their shows. Additionally, they did an experiment on magnetic and non-magnetic materials.
Hope that the children have enjoyed their first week in school so far. (:
