This week in class we have been busy making sushi as part of our Japan topic. We made it in time for our parents to come in and try it. We didn’t think they liked it very much! In maths we have started working on fractions. Today we all did our individual talks. They were all very interesting. It is now the holidays!
We have been working with the G1-2 class from Stornoway Primary on our Literacy Project this term. They all wrote letters to us and we replied to them. It is great to have pen-pals and to have made new friends.
We have been busy working on a Literacy Project this term focusing on Julia Donaldson’s book ‘Na Caraidean’. We had fun making the paper dolls and wrote some friendship acrostic poems which we have displayed alongside them.
We have been busy this term organising a tuck shop which sells delicious snacks to the whole school every morning break. Our P5 girls, Ruby, Hannah and Cara, are the managers but we have all been helping to serve customers and keep the tuck shop running smoothly. We have had to practice using money so we always give the right change!
We have had some ‘special Fridays’ where we sell our own homebaking. One week we made delicious pancakes and they all sold out!
This term we have been busy learning about The Past. The children brought in some objects and photos from the past and we very much enjoyed looking at them and talking about them. We were also learning about famous building from the past and we discussed what the Isle of Lewis was like in the olden days.
We can’t wait to show our work from this topic at our open afternoon on Wednesday.
