We have had a fun week (Brooke).
This week was our class assembly, we began by having a dress rehearsal in the hall, our reading buddies from P2CF came to watch us (Emma). We then preformed our class assembly to the P3-7s and our parents and carers (Hassan). Danny thinks doing the assembly was fun. Jodie thinks doing the assembly was frightening. We had some trouble with our microphones, but we all used our growth mindset and didn’t give up!
We voted for our top 3 favorite dresses to show at our assembly (Hassan). We also learned what they different parts of a castle are and what they are used for. We looked closely at different Scottish castles using google earth, we then planned how we would build a castle out of loose parts (Haris). We drew a labelled diagram to help us build our loose parts castle after the February break (Jodie).
On Wednesday we researched Nelson Mandela on the internet and took notes (keira). We used our notes to create power points.
We read out our diary entries from last week and voted for the ones we wanted to include in our assembly (Emma). We also wrote a cold piece, the title of our story was ‘The Jungle’ (Erin). We had to include at least 5 descriptive words or phrases (Ruvimbo).
During circle time this we read a story called ‘Dogger’. We then completed a 3 sharings about the story (Haris). We were able to make lots of connections with the story and spoke about how they main character was feeling.
On Wednesday we continued our work on compass points (Khloe). We completed a text book page. Some people looked at 4 point compasses and some looked at 8 point compasses (Jaxon).
This week we went outside for a math lesson, we were learning about measure (Alexandra). When we were outside we measured different things in the playground. Jonathin measured sticks, leafs and some of the trim trail.
We have also been learning how to calculate the perimeter (Lacie). We now know to calculate the perimeter you need to use a ruler to measure each side of the shape and then add up the length of each side (Haris).
We hope you have a lovely February break!
P4/5EG and Miss Gordon.
