Last week after we made the shape video B4 asked us what our favourite shapes were so we conducted an investigation to find out. First all the children picked their favourite shape then they came together as a class and sorted the shapes into groups. Then we put the shape groups into a graph. This is what we found out...

We found out that the most popular shape was a diamond. The second most popular shape was a square. The least popular shape was a triangle.

What is your favourite shape?

The Shape Song

Today we had a look at B4's blog at Reefton Area School. 

We watched their video of a song they had learnt about shapes. They had learnt 3 verses then made up 2 of their own. Then they asked if anybody could make up their own about diamonds so we decided to give it a go! 

First we looked at diamonds. Then we talked about them. These are some of the ideas we came up with! 

Then we practiced our song and recorded it! I hope you enjoy! I wonder if anybody else could write another verse!

Dominique's super writing

Check out Dominique's super writing on the iPad. Dominique has used her word card to find words around the room and she has tried really hard to write all of the sounds she can hear in tricky words.

This is hop scotch.

Toms fabulous story writing with Mrs Hallberg

Tom has been using the iPad to write stories. He writes words he knows and finds tricky ones from his sight word pack. Tom has also recorded himself reading his story. We are so proud of him! Well done Tom!
