This week in P5/6S

This week in Primary 5/6S we have had a particularly busy but great week.

In Literacy we have been doing different rotations learning our spelling words, using dictionaries and thesauruses to find out the meanings and synonyms of words, drawing the main character in our book and labelling information about them, practising uplevelling our sentences and summarising our new books.

On Wednesday, with Miss Belford, we were learning about Remembrance Day. We wrote out the poem ‘On Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae and created a fact file and Powerpoint presentation.

In Numeracy we have been learning about fractions. “We were learning about improper fractions where the numerator is bigger than the denominator – it was hard at first but then I learned how to do it” (Danny). “We also learned about equivalent fractions” (John H.).

In Art we created charcoal pictures of Victorian people. “I drew a man with a large moustache” (Michael). “We were learning how to use charcoal to create portraits” (Jamie). We spent time observing our pictures carefully and learned how to use charcoal to show light and shadow. We are really pleased with our finished works of art.
