Happy New Year from P6! This week we chatted about what we enjoyed last year and what we were looking forward to in 2020. We wrote about our goals for this year. We learned about Growth Mindset and took a quiz to see what kind of mindset we all have which was very interesting.
Yesterday we visited the Science Centre for the launch of our topic Clyde in the Classroom. We had so much fun exploring the mall and learning about brown trout. We cant wait to receive our hatchery next Tuesday.
This week was digital learning week. We had great fun using Bee Bots with the digital leaders. It was such a fun workshop. We looked at how digital technology has changed over the years. Mrs Boyle told us about what kind of technology there was in the 1980s and 90s and how it’s changed so much over the years.
We did a STEM challenge this week which was called the Roly Poly challenge. We used paper plates and toilet rolls or kitchen roll tubes to make a wheel. We then videod these rolling in the corridor to see how far they would roll. Most of them worked very well!
We have also been working on our flower bed in the Field of Dreams which was full of weeds. With a bit of hard work and effort from us all we have made it look good again. 6F608C2E-E1B7-479C-BD58-DE8AA6A48AE3
This week we have been learning about arrays in Numeracy. We had fun using pom poms to make arrays for different times table sums. We also completed our daily mile this week along with our active schools co-ordinator. We were exhausted! Our new topic this term is Spain so we discussed what we already knew about Spain and made a mind map with all of our ideas. In Literacy we were very successful at uplevelling our sentences. The teacher is looking forward to lots more interesting sentences this term!
In P3a we have been reading The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark and working hard on comprehension questions. We drew wonderful Owl pictures for a class display. In numeracy we have been learning all about 3d shapes and we have also been learning our 5 times table. This week in health we were learning about eating healthy and keeping our teeth clean. Last week we did our dance display for our parents. We had so much fun and hope the parents enjoyed it. Thank you so much for coming to see us!
