Class teacher: Mrs Mackenzie
RCCT teacher: Mrs Srivastava
We interviewed Max & Aileigh from P5/6.
Aileigh said she really liked the art exhibition and said it was a really good way to learn things in a really fun way. Max said it was okay but a bit too noisy! The artist they were studying is a Scottish artist called Samuel Peploe; they copied his techniques with still life paintings. Their Scottish focus of learning has been renewable energy, and they had a trip to the college and saw how most of the energy works. For maths they have been learning about different types of money and how to use it, they have used textbooks for learning and also just sorting general coins out. Max and Aileigh both agreed that they feel confident in their money work. They have a class novel called ‘Little bits of sky’. They also both have personal reading books; Max is reading a book called ‘Born to run’ by Michael Morpurgo and is really enjoying it. Aileigh is reading ‘ Esio Trot’ by Roald Dahl and says she loves it and really recommends if you’re into books. For ICT they have been researching facts about renewable energy and in PE they have been doing cricket and says it is really fun!

We interviewed Max and Aileigh from Primary 5/6.
We asked Aileigh and Max if they were auditioning for the talent show and Max said he is auditioning and he will be doing Russian dancing with his friend Jack! Aileigh said she probably isn’t and if she was she would have no idea what she would do for the talent show!
During Literacy time they both said they have been learning about homophones and they are kind of enjoying it. For personal reading time Max is reading a Minecraft book and it tells you how to use them and Aileigh is reading ‘The Twits’ by Roald Dahl which is about Mr Twit and Mrs Twit pranking each other! On Bonfire Night, they both saw the fireworks but Max was watching out of his window. They were watching videos and listening to a song by Katy Perry called Fireworks.
Finally, their topic is called Natural Disasters. They both enjoy it and they have been doing an activity called ‘what I know’, ‘what I want to know’ and ‘what I have learned’ They also did research at ICT time about it and they’ve done illustrations about their topic.
