It’s that time again, East Renfrewshire’s Sumdog Competition is here! We performed really well last time but we can do even better this time🎉.
The competition begins on Friday 15th May at 8am and ends on Thursday 21st May at 8pm.
Remember there is usually a scoreboard for individuals as well as a class average. The competition is out of a possible 1000 correct calculations. Once you get to 1000 future answers don’t change your score so it is more important to be accurate than fast (e.g. answering 700 correctly this is better than answering 1000 questions with 350 errors).
Take your time, be accurate and enjoy yourself! Good Luck🍀
Spelling – Access https://www.spellingcity.com/users/MrsKHorne, select the correct lists use spellingcity’s games to help you learn your words. Each week you are also to learn five words that you have selected yourself with the spelling rule taught on Mondays. These will not be on spelling city. Instead, practise the rule making your words using active strategies (writing words on a partners back to guess, make with pasta or playdoh, rainbow writing, cheerleading the words etc…). You do not hand evidence of this in to school. It should be short, fun and engaging. You will complete a short dictation which uses words of a similar difficulty, though not the 5 specific words, which follow the spelling rule on Fridays.

We showed props and acted out events from our favourite non-fiction and fiction books. These included Jurassic World texts, Jacobite Rebellion stories, crime fiction, Scottish characters, football tales and fantasy novels to name a few.
Emma – It felt really good to be outside in the nice weather. We worked in teams and played passing games. My groups strategy was to stay as far away from the other team as possible to give plenty of space to pass and so that they couldn’t intercept.
Hot Seating is when a character is questioned by the group about his or her background, behaviour and motivation. The method may be used for developing a role or further understanding of a character.
Magnus – We took turns to choose characters to put in the hot seat. We asked them questions and it was fun to see what people thought about different characters and why they were like that. I went in the hot seat as Auggie and I found it fun but I had to think of different answers.
