In English, we have started a live unit called 'The Ghost Thief'. The children are really enjoying this topic and have been very engaged when listening to the podcasts. On Tuesday the children had the opportunity to write their own ghost stories. I was so impressed with their stories and how they built up a spooky atmosphere. A few lucky children had the chance to read their stories to Mrs O'Brien! Next week, the children will be working in groups to create their own 3 episode spooky podcast.
In Science, we have been investigating what materials make good conductors and insulators. The children created a simple circuit and added in various objects to test whether or not they conducted electricity. Next week, we will be making our own switches.
We have been getting very creative this week and have been making Christmas decorations for the tree in the hall. We challenged ourselves to create an origami star out of one sheet of paper and then decorated it with glitter and stickers.
Have a great weekend.
