This week in P5/6S

This week in P5/6S we have had a hopping good week!

In Literacy we have done some spelling with our newest spelling rules. We practised writing our words in different kinds of writing and then created out own sentences. We are still reading ‘The Nowhere Emporium’ for our class novel (Sophie-Leigh). I like drawing whilst we listen to Miss Steel read the story (Megan).

In Art we drew are own faces showing a different emotion. We drew these in a pop-art style inspired by Lichtenstein and finished them today.

In Numeracy we are doing fractions and percentages and have been learning a new way to find fractions of a quantity. We also did an Easter hunt with math questions which we answered in groups with a prize of chocolate eggs at the end.

In IDL we have been doing more of our learning about natural disasters with a special way of presenting it to our classmates (Jamie). I also liked all of the experiments.

We all hope you all have a good Easter and a lovely holiday too.

We have had a fun and busy first week back in school after lockdown. It has been so good to see each other again.

In Numeracy we have been revising strategies for multiplication and problem solving. We have played maths games, learned about multiples and shared our learning with each other during our chilli challenge.

In Literacy we have been learning our new spelling words using Elkonin boxes and practising using our words in sentences. We have also been reading our class novel for this term, which is ‘The Nowhere Emporium’, and using comprehension strategies to work out the meaning of a text.

In Art we have been looking at creating pop-art portraits inspired by Roy Lichtenstein, as well as learning about mark making.

We have been enjoying the nice weather outside for PE and our orienteering map activity.
