Compass points and orienteering

Today we practiced our orienteering skills and map drawing to prepare to explore the Greek island that our time machine has crash landed on. We had a malfunction travelling from the Neolithic period back to present day. We had to land the time machine in an era where metals were being used as alloys so that we can fix our flux capacitor.

Here is a map of the route we travelled across. The children worked in pairs to create instructions of which direction to travel and how many steps. Here is a video of the route.

Your task now children is to input your directions into the comments section. Good luck!

Mondrian artwork

We have been looking at parallel and perpendicular lines in maths and have applied our learning to artwork. We discussed artwork by Piet Mondrian who was a Dutch artist living from 1871-1944. He worked on a white background and painted vertical and horizontal black lines using the three primary colours.

Happy New Year!

Now that we are back from the Christmas holidays let’s share what our Christmas day was like. Describe what it was like waking up, getting out of bed and what happened next. Try to use descriptive adjectives and share the thoughts and feelings you had.
