Last week in P5/6S

This week in P5/6S we have had a shortened week because tomorrow is an in service day.

In Literacy

We were learning about characterisation. We were also singing our Christmas carols. Our songs are ‘Santa, Bring me a Dinosaur’ by Bob Brown and ‘Last Christmas’ by Wham. On top of our songs we are learning ‘Silent Night’ in Makaton.

We wrote the storyline of a 2014 John Lewis advert named ‘Monty the Penguin’ where a boy has a penguin who goes and plays hide and seek, plays football and even eats fish fingers. The penguin wants love so on Christmas the boy asks for a friend for his toy penguin and they are happy.

In Numeracy

We have been learning how to simplify fractions and changing the denominator. Today we had a maths assessment -“It was tough” (Eray).

In Art

We made Christmas inspired puppets out of card and pins. Some are fairies, Santa, Scrooge and even the Grinch. We made rooms from Anne Frank’s annexe out of cardboard boxes on Wednesday with Miss Belford.


Our class representative Megan asked us questions. We did a survey on what we like and want to learn. John H. thought “it was fun”.

We hope you have a good, safe and happy weekend – bye.
