This week in P5LD wb 10.1.22

We have had an excellent week jam packed with exciting teaching and learning!


In numeracy we have been working in different groups for SEAL: Stages of early arithmetical learning). We spent time today working on chance and probability for our maths work and some of us have continued this into golden time-we are finding it fascinating!

In literacy, we are half way through our fantasy stories and we cannot wait to share them with some of the other pupils and teacher in the school. We are very proud of them! We had a spelling test this morning and are looking forward to next week when we can explore our new reading books.

Have a lovely weekend everyone, P5LD

This Week in P5LD

This week, we have been learning about symmetry and doing lots of work in our numeracy jotters. I learned how to create designs showing two lines of symmetry and I used colour to make it more complicated.

In literacy this week, we have been working up to our big writing assessment and have been planning our characters personality traits.  We also described their appearance by using adjectives. We have also drawn our setting for our fantasy story and can’t wait to get writing next week!

In PE this week, we were doing lots of Scottish dancing and we were learning how to do it correctly to the music. We will be doing these dances next week at our Christmas party.


week beginning 15th November

This week in P5LD, we went to the P2/3 class to help the little ones open their book bags, read them some stories and play with them for a bit. The best bit was was being partnered up with someone I knew so it was a good experience.

In numeracy , we have been doing short and long division sums with remainders and continuing our daily mental maths sheets. A few of us have increased our scores but some of us have stayed the same.

In literacy, we completed a writing assessment about fantasy characters. We had to create a boy and a girl character and the piece had to be set in the forest, Many of us wrote stories about magical gems etc.  In spelling we learned the a_e sound, ‘shr’ sound, ‘wa’ and ‘c as s’ sound.

In other areas…we created inspirational bookmarks to celebrate Book Week. In German, we played a number bingo game and someone won twice in a row which was unbelievable! We had to say ‘Lotto’ and that means ‘Bingo’ in German! In PE, we played a game called ‘dishes and domes’.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

This week in P5LD

This week  we have been learning  to express our feelings  in circle time. We had our teddy called the elephant  and we watched a video (bbc clip) about two girls that are best friends and the main characters were called Jess  and Megan. We discussed the problems we have experienced regarding friendships and listened to each other to offer advice.

Here is our elephant who helps us during circle time.


We done our second 5k which is three miles and we knocked off four minutes of our time! Some of us like me and my classmates did jogging  and did proper pacing. After two miles we stopped and did some exercises . We were exhausted but proud of ourselves!
