Behold the beautiful Cacti…

The Grade 5s had a challenging first term in the Design and Technology lessons learning to manipulate wire and work with pliers but their hard work paid off with beautiful end results!  This was a new project taken on this year and they certainly reaped the rewards of their perseverance and positive attitudes.  Look at how stunning these cacti are!

Presenting our Creatures

We hope that you all enjoyed our presentation of the prairie dog.

Our Grade 5 children were supposedly approached by the SABC to create and present a nature documentary for television on their soil creatures.  They used this opportunity to present the information on their soil creature posters to the rest of the class in an interesting and creative way.  Everyone remained fully engaged in what was being said throughout all of the presentations.  They really loved hearing about all the different animals and had so much fun watching their friends pretend to be TV presenters.

The Sisters in Science taught us all about the hedgehog – apparently they have about 500 fleas each.

Reading Maps on the Road

Being out-and-about is so much nicer than sitting in the classroom!

Last week our Grade 5’s ventured out onto the street and had to find their way around the neighbourhood by using a road map.  At first, orientating themselves according to the map seemed to be challenging, but they soon realised how to work it out.  Friends helped each other along the way.  Back in the classroom, the children used the knowledge gained during the exercise to complete a road map task.
