Compound Word PowerPoints

Filed under Uncategorized

Today in class, we gave examples of compound words through powerpoint. The older children were paired up with their buddies (children of 2nd and 3rd class) and the younger children learned lots of computer skills. We had words like foot + ball = football and snow + man = snowman with pictures for each of the words. The children are very proud of their powerpoints and we will show them to the class when they are all finished.

4th Class Electricity Survey

Filed under Uncategorized

Fourth Class have been busy this week in carrying out their survey on most used electrical appliances in homes. Each pupil had to ask four different people what electrical appliances were used most frequently in their homes. Once all the results were collated, fourth class then had to do some analysis of their results. The findings were interesting! A lot of the children and Dads surveyed felt the TV to be one of the most important electrical appliances in the home! The most used appliances were: 1. Cooker, 2. Fridge/Freezer, 3. Dishwasher, 4. Washing Machine, 5. Dryer. For homework, this Science lesson was integrated with Maths. The children had to present the five most used electrical appliances on a Bar Chart.
