Revising 2D Shapes

In P2b we have been sharing our knowledge on 2D shapes.

We described the shapes we knew and then worked together to make some bright, colourful posters for the classroom. We then had to present our learning to the class.

There were lots of descriptive words used such as curved, straight, corners, sides, flat and equal.

We even knew that a corner is where two sides meet and that a square is different from a rectangle because while a rectangle has 2 long sides and 2 short sides, the sides on a square are all the same length.

Some of us challenged ourselves to learn the names of some trickier shapes like heptagon and octagon!

Have a look at our work!

A massive thank you to everyone who has taken the time to complete our first parent survey of the school year. We are collating them right now and looking at ways we can improve our communication, make it possible for you to join in with school events and support you with your child’s homework.

If you haven’t yet had the chance to complete the survey we would really love to hear your thoughts. The survey is completely anonymous and can be found by clicking here: parent survey

As always, thank you for your continued support.

Handa’s Surprise – STEM Challenge!

This week we have been learning the story Handa’s Surprise which links to our Africa topic.

The story is about a little girl who takes fruit to her friend in another village. She carries the fruit in a basket on her head!

We set ourselves the challenge of using lots of different types of construction equipment to try and make our own baskets to carry fruit.

There was lots of team work and collaborative learing, and we even helped each other solve some tricky problems! It was lots of fun and a great way to start off our first year as a new class. We are excited for our next challenge!

The story of Handa’s Surprise can be found on Youtube via the following link:

Escape the Classroom 🔑🚪

As a way of consolidating our learning of grammar rules in P5, we participated in a literacy challenge called ‘Escape the Classroom’.

Inspired by ‘Escape Rooms’ in Glasgow, we worked in a small groups to solve 10 Literacy problems. Each problem was a clue to a digit to the “door lock”.

With the aim to find the 10 digit code in the fastest time, we worked well collaboratively to apply what we have learned to answer challenging questions.

Congratulations to our winning team who ‘escaped the classroom’ in 31 minutes and 22 seconds 👏🏼🔑🚪
