We have been learning languages.  We had French and we know our numbers and some colours. Then on Tuesday we had Gaelic. Mrs MacLennan drew a line in the middle of the white board and put numbers on each side. Then she would say a number in Gaelic and the first person to find it would get a point.


On Thursday Mrs Dillon came in because Mrs Murray was off. She did angles with us in maths. After lunch Mrs Dillon did a lesson with us about what we want to be when we grow up. We also had to write all the steps we have to take to get there.

I want to be an artist.


On Friday my reading group had reading. We all have different books and we tell everyone what has happened since the last time we read aloud. My book is The Snow Merchant.

On Monday the 14th we all came back from the Easter holidays. We were asked to choose any article from a newspaper. We cut it out and stuck it into our reading jotters and we then had to write a summary of what it was about. This is so that we can work on our reading skills for use in our literacy circles. We also did some Alta maths which we did online on the computers in the ICT room.


On Wednesday the 16th James’s grandfather, Jock Murray, came in to talk to us.  We had all been working on personal talks on a subject of our choice.  James had chosen to speak about his granddad and invited him in so we could ask him some questions.  He has lived a really interesting life and it was good to get a chance to speak to him.
