The first blockAt Belfast School the first bell rings at 8:55am to get the kids into their amazing learning spaces. Our first activity is Spelling. In our class we have six groups. One day group five will be on Spelling City and the other five groups will be doing a worksheet. Or vice versa.
Carbo snack is a snack that we usually have at around 9:30am. This is to give our bodies the fuel that we need to complete another hour of awesome learning. But we are only allowed food with carbs.
After carbo we do our writing. At the moment we are learning about Story Telling. This is where we do lots of awesome activities about one story. For example: we have been put into groups, to make our own bread with a secret ingredient.
First break time /Morning tea
The bell goes for the first break at 10:30am, we have until 10:45am to play then we go back into class to eat our nutritious morning tea.
At Reading time we get into our groups. We get two rotations they include Bananagrams, Teacher, Reading Eggs, Spelling City and Reading to yourself.
At lunch we get 30 minutes of play. After the lunch break, we eat our delicious lunch. This keeps us going until afternoon play and through Maths.
For Maths we also get into groups. To complete work or learn with the teacher.
We also use the computers for our awesome Maths Programme Khan Academy.
Afternoon play is the same as morning tea. We get 15 minutes to play with our bros. After that we come back inside have our fruit and milk.
For the last block of learning we have Inquiry. At the moment we are learning about forces. Here are some examples: Air resistant force, Gravity force, Applied force, Spring force and Tension force.
