This week in P5/6 TG

Literacy

This week we developed our note taking skills – we wrote information in key words under sub-headings. We then used our notes to write up what we had learned. Some of us made posters, some of us use the netbooks to make Powerpoint presentations. We have been reading a short novel called The Day We Met the Queen – this is a book that can be purchased for £1 or using a book token for World Book Day.  We have been developing the comprehension skill of wondering, linking it with our ability to make connections.

Numeracy

We have used the counting stick to explore the links between Fractions, decimals and percentages. We also spent time this week learning to use the grid method to multiply larger numbers – this method requires us to use our partitioning skills and our understanding place value.

Health and Wellbeing

We continue our RSHP lessons this week, we have explored some challenging topics but also ideas about respecting others likes and dislikes and the idea of personal space and consent.

World Book Day

Many of us dressed up as characters from our favourite stories, we had Pippi-Longstocking, a Scarecrow from the wizard of OZ, Charlotte from Charlotte’s Web ( a very big spider!), Maudie from Brightstorm, Pikachu, Mildred from The Worst Witch,  Rocky from The Fairy Books, a bat from Brightstorm, a witch from Hogwarts – and a few muggles! Our door is looking fabulous and we are looking forward to the judging tomorrow. In assembly Miss Belford told us about a book her dad had made.
