We have enjoyed writing stories and acting out plays about the Three Billy Goats Gruff.
I like when we worked with our partners to act out different parts of the story. We love to show our ideas to the rest of the class ( Lexi)
We also developed our Technology skills this week. I made a playground using a variety of folding and cutting techniques. I had a slide and a roundabout. (Cara)
Some of the ideas worked well but we need to work on some of our skills. ( Eleanor)
Some of the class made power point presentations to share their learning with others.
Bella made a power point about how to be healthy.
My dad helped me. He did the writing but I came up with all the ideas. I told the class about what to eat to keep healthy and live a healthy lifestyle. I will now help my class to make their own power points during ICT time.
Ayyan also made a power point presentation:
To be healthy we all have to do sports such as basketball, football and badminton. We also have to eat lots vegetables, fruit, some dairy and only a tiny bit of candy. I really enjoyed this activity and hope that I taught everyone lots of things about good health.
Sam’s power point was also about our healthy lifestyle topic:
I told everyone about the health triangle. At the top of the health triangle there is food. Another side has exercise and the final side has attitude. We must have a healthy balanced diet, lots of exercise and a good attitude to be healthy.
Jessica made a power point about our recent topic on the Ancient Egyptians. My power point was about what the ancient Egyptians ate and wore. I also said that they were great mathematicians. I really enjoyed making this. My next presentation will be on Health
We have been discussing how to live a healthy lifestyle. (Elle)
It is important to have a happy attitude and laugh a lot. (Warren)
We must all try to keep fit by going to football, gymnastics, dancing, swimming or other sports. (Evan)
To be healthy you need to eat a balanced diet. I like to eat bananas, apples, cucumber and carrots. (We have also been learning where to put commas when we’re writing a list) Lauren
I think it’s important to have a good sleep, so I go to bed early on a school night. (Molly)
We enjoyed writing this week. My story was about going into a pyramid and finding treasure but also a mummy! ( Heather)
I got lost in a pyramid. It was dark and I slipped on some sand on to a lever which opened the case of gold. (Tia)
In Maths, the Spheres have been improving their multiplication skills. I am busy learning the two and the four times tables. (Bruce)
The Cylinders and Spheres have been learning about 3D shapes and their properties. We have been looking at 3D shapes in our environment.
You can see cones at the ice-cream shop and cylinders at the shops. They sometimes hold soup. My fridge is a cuboid. (Dylan)
This week we chose our new topic – we are going to be learning all about Scottish food! We have started by exploring lots of different Scottish dishes and finding out what their ingredients are. We found out that cullen skink is made out of smoked haddock, potatoes and onions, and that shortbread is made with sugar, butter and flour. Next, we are going to learn about where all of these ingredients come from.
We had lots of questions about how Scottish food is made.
Daryn asked, “Where did all of the ingredients for shortbread and porridge come from?”
Harris asked, “How is the pastry for steak pie put together?”
Ryan asked, “How do they put the porridge oats in a box?”
Charlotte asked, “How do you make haggis, neeps and tatties?”
Lucy asked, “How is cullen skink put together?”
Olivia asked “What are some other Scottish foods?”
Isla said “Lots of the foods come from an island called Islay! That’s like my name!”
Alfie wondered, “Where was the first place haggis was made?”
Becki asked “Who was the first person to try all of these Scottish foods?”
Zakir asked “Was shortbread made in 1984?”
Ross asked “Do tatties grow in farms in other countries?”
Aisha asked, “How do get tatties into different shapes?”
We are going to try and answer lots of these questions during our topic time this term!
