It has been a busy week in P4B. We have managed to learn a lot despite the stormy weather and used what we have been learning about all of the extreme weather around the world at the moment to add to “Our World” topic, with discussions about the difference between Weather and Climate.
We have been reading about Sophie Scott and her trip to Antartica and talking about extreme cold and the differences between The North Pole and The South Pole. We will now move on to looking at hot climates and then finally compare these areas with the temperate climate in Scotland.
Since the start of term we have been focusing on developing Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation for our Big Writing sessions and today’s focus was on Punctuation when writing about “The Monster”. This week we used active spelling techniques to improve our spelling of common words and our Kung Fu Punctuation Skills to help identify the best ways to improve writing with great punctuation.
After a week long focus on Fractions for Maths Week, we have now moved on to look at Tiling, Division and Time. Times Table knowledge is so important in all aspects of Primary Maths and we have been using BBC Sports Supermovers to practice our times tables as well as times table games and chants in class.
The children arrived on Monday with some truly spectacular Maths Hats and proudly paraded round the school wearing them.
It has been a fantastic week of learning and I think everybody is now ready for a fabulous long weekend, hopefully the weather will be kind to us and the children will return on Tuesday with lots of stories about the fun they have had.
