World Water Day 2014 / at school and in Skype

22 March is World Water Day.
On Friday Class 5 students spoke about water with each other and with our guests from South Africa in Skype. We learnt a lot of interesting facts about water and thought of ways to save it. There are some posters and mini-projects on our board. Ann R created a presentation about World Water Day.
We also spoke about water with our guests Lin-lin from Taiwan, Mrs Hallows and Mr Sherman from South Africa.

Chinese inventions

Students learnt a lot about Chinese inventions in class, then they searched the Internet, visited the school library and looked up about them in encyclopedias. 

On 19 March they spoke about Chinese inventions with Lin-lin, a teacher from Taiwan. She taught us how to make a paper fan.

Here are some photos from our Skype chat.


On Monday 17 March we were talking about if clauses in class. Polina, Vika and Alex told us their "If" story:

If we go to the Arctic, we’ll see a Polar bear.
If we see a Polar bear we will be scared.
If we are scared, we’ll run away.
If we run away, we will slip on the ice.
If we slip on the ice, we fall into the ocean.

If we fall into the ocean, we will swim to Russia. 

Concert on 7 March

Lots of class 5 students go to art clubs and often perform at concerts. They also took part in the school concert for their mothers and teachers that was held at school on 7 March. Their performance was a great success.
