November was a very busy month in Katie’s Fifth Class. During Science Week the children learned about famous scientists and inventors. They created mini projects based on their favourite scientist or inventor. The class also completed various experiments over the week including ‘The Skittles Experiment’ and ‘The Paper Spinner Experiment’.
Sewing was the focus of Visual Arts in November. The boys and girls learned a variety of sewing skills, including how to complete a running stitch, a back stitch and how to sew on a button. Many of the children took it upon themselves to use their new skills at home to fix a tear in their clothes or to sew on a button that had fallen off!
A huge congratulations to the boys and girls in Katie’s class who received their pen license this month! Well done to all! Keep up the great cursive handwriting!
