This week in P5/6S

This week in P5/6S we have had a very creative last week of term.

Over the last couple of weeks, we have been working on writing menus in our French lessons. This week we made woven placemats, decorated plates and learned how to sew aprons, in order to create our very own French cafe in class. Miss Steel was really impressed with everyone’s sewing skills and perseverance in making their own aprons, including having to thread needles!

In our class cafe we  tasted some French foods and practised our French vocabulary – everyone enjoyed this a lot.

Wishing you all a wonderful summer.

This week in P5/6S

This week in P5/6S we have had a fun, calm and relaxing week.

In Literacy we are making our own robot characters and creating stories about them. (Mac)

In Numeracy we did text books on division. (Jamie) We practised using the written ‘bus-stop’ method to solve division problems.

In P.E we had an outdoor sports day – we also had an extra P.E lesson and in that we did throwing and catching games (todge-ball with rugby balls instead of round balls). I enjoy mush ball which is a mix of regular balls and different balls. (Sophie-Leigh)

In I.D.L/art we made collages of Scottish landscapes (Callum). We did it with paint and tissue paper from different magazines and catalogues. It was amazingly awesome (it did take ages though).

In Health and Wellbeing we have been learning about consent (Jamie). Consent is A LOT bigger than I thought to be honest and I know now to ask people if I have their consent.

Have a lovely day/weekend all!

Hope to see you all soon and good luck in your new classes after summer.

This week in P5/6S

We have had a very enjoyable but busy week in P5/6S.

In Literacy we have been learning more about punctuation and all the different ways to use a comma correctly. We also practised our spelling rules and learnt about creating a character. We invented our own robot characters inspired by the story ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. We discussed how the author had used repetition, similes, personification, onomatopoeia and adjectives within their writing to give details and provide impact.

In Numeracy we continued practising our division skills by playing dice games to create number sentences. We also used our measuring skills as part of our Human Body topic to estimate and measure the size of body parts. Did you know the small intestine is approximately 7 metres long?

We have enjoyed PE with Miss Clarkson this week and we have been taking part in team games.

In IDL we have made models of skeleton ribcages and learnt about the composition of blood and how the stomach breaks down food through class experiments – these involved plastic bags, crackers, lemonade, cereal, marshmallows, water and food colouring! We also located where all the major organs are in the body.

In French we created our own French menu to practise using our French vocabulary. Everyone enjoyed creating their own individual menus with their favourite foods.

Have a lovely weekend.

11th June 2021 P6M Blog

This week in P6 we had a very busy week!

In Numeracy this week most of the have been focusing on budgeting a holiday.  We had to think about our budget and what we will spend it on. We thought about the appropriate clothes, activities, travel, food and drink and accommodation. If there was 2 people going our budget would be £2500 and if it was a family of 4 the budget would be £5000.

In Literacy we were finishing our sandwich book review. For each layer of the sandwich we had to describe a different part of the story. For example the layer of lettuce would be a summary of the class novel or the cheese would be your favourite part from the book. We also learnt more about joined up writing  and practised joining R and I. In our writing lesson we wrote about the travels of a five pound note. We had to describe the feelings the five pond note would experience during their adventure.

In IDL we labelled the inside and outside of an eye and the ear. We talked about how we could hear different sounds.

In Health and Well being we were learning about the effects of alcohol. We had to present what we learned, for example a power point or a poster.

By Marilena and  Anika.

 

This Week In P1/2S…

WOW WEE have we been bus-eeeey! Let us tell you about our fun and learning-filled week…

Literacy:

We have been learning new sounds. P1 have been learning the ‘ng’ sound and reading words like bang, long and ring. P2 have been learning lots of long I sounds – i_e, ie, y and ie. We have been sorting words out into these different sound categories.

Numeracy:

We have been learning to measure a containers volume and been practising making different volumes by reading the scales and trying to pour in enough and not too much water to reach that point.

We have been using certain words to describe how we know if a number is missing from a number line or 100 square like before, after, in between, rows and columns.

IDL/HWB:

We have been learning about harmful substances and medicines. We learned that it is important to keep these things in cupboards away from children because they can look like sweeties or drinks.

In RME, we were learning about Hinduism and we explored the story Sita and Rama and the Festival of Diwali.

This week in P1D

Here are Primary 1’s thoughts on the fantastic week we have been having:

 

What’s gone well?

  • Paying for items in the role play shop.
  • Showing numbers before, after and in between for numbers 20 – 30.
  • Using the counting stick to ‘count on’.

What do we need to do better?

  • Using cubes to solve word problems.
  • Using loose parts to create different things from the stories we read.
  • Get better at playing Teeth Tag in P.E.

What do we want to do more of?

  • Playing with the dinosaurs on the space rocket.
  • Multiplying e.g. 3 groups of 2.
  • Looking after the babies in the role play area.

Star moments

  • Earning some Silver house point chart certificates.
  • Using chalk pastels to make our Star of David craft.
  • Watching our sunflower seeds grow.

This week in P4S

This week in Art we have been learning to mix paint to get tints (Nadia). Tints are when you add white to a colour to make it lighter (Nikola).  I was successful in making tints as each box had a different colour (Eli).

 

In P.E. we played a game called rounders.  I like rounders (Evin).  Someone would stand in first base, second base, third base and someone would hit the ball with a racket then run to first base before the ball gets there (Nadia)

 

In Numeracy this week we have been looking at grid references today (Jaiden).  We played a game with counters and it was really fun (Ayleigh) Two people were in each team and each group had counters.  Both groups put their counters on their grid and we took it in turn to guess where on the grid the counters were e.g. A4.  If we guessed correctly we got to keep the counter. The team with the most counters were the winners (Ellie)

We revised 2D shapes yesterday and sorted them on a Carroll diagram depending on how many vertices and edges they had (Daniel).

 

This week in Literacy we were learning about speech marks. There are 4 rules like when someone new starts talking you go to the line below, always start with a capital letter inside the speech marks, you only include the speech and not words like shouted or said and always include the punctuation before the last speech mark. (Reggie)

 

We have been revising how to say colour names in French then say whether we love, like, don’t like or hate a colour (Kacey).  Today we had a challenge where we have to say please and thank you in French all day (Abbaigh).  The words to say please are s’il vous plait and merci is thank you (Reggie)

This week in P5/6S

This week in P5/6S we have had a busy week.

In Literacy we watched the animated film ‘The Present’ and answered inferential questions about it, thinking about what we saw and what we could work out from the clues in the film. We also practised our spelling rules and making connections with our reading. “Today we had a spelling test. I liked it but found it hard!” (Sophie-Leigh). “I enjoyed it but I think I got most wrong.” (Tyler)

In Numeracy we started a new maths topic. “We started division. I hated fractions but I like divison” (Callum). We also did some more mental maths practise.

In Health and Wellbeing we were learning about the skills and qualities needed to be a parent or carer in order to keep children happy, healthy and safe.

We learned about Pride Week and created colourful t-shirt designs to support this.

We were also looking at future careers and getting creative thinking up a new sweet product. We had to design what we would like that to look and taste like.

In PE with Miss Clarkson we did some team work. It was girls against boys and the girls won – it was a good game though!

In French we made French café menus. “I really liked it.” (Tyler)

Have a good weekend –P5/6 and Miss Steel

Some of our new sweet designs.
