Primary 3/4/5L Working Extremely Hard!

March 16, 2016 by Mr MacLeod | 1 Comment


Hi Everyone!

Just a little update on all the hard work that’s been happening in our class.

In music we have been learning about instruments that make different types of noises: boom, tap and scrape, shake and ting. A drum makes a ‘boom’ sound. A triangle makes a ‘ting’ sound. A guiro makes a ‘tap and scrape’ sound and a tambourine makes a ‘shake’ sound. We have been having lots of fun and have been making lots of noise!

In language we have been learning about the phonemes ‘ck’ and ‘mb’, which has a silent b – we all shout “DO WE SAY IT? NO WE DON’T”. Geraldine Giraffe helps us!

In maths we have doing lots of work on making 100, we have been playing matching cards, SMART board games and using numicon to support our learning.

In our writing we have been using describing words to help us write character descriptions! We have done one for the Big Bad Wolf, Mr MacLeod, Mrs Stevenson and Jordan! We have also worked as a class to write this blog!

Titanic Lego models

January 10, 2016 by User deactivated | 2 Comments

To end our Titanic IDL theme we made Lego models of the ship. We used photos and illustrations to guide us in our models. We tried to make them as close to the real ship as possible. Mark’s model even had the damage where the iceberg hit! We really enjoyed this topic and finding out about this famous ship.

Mark's model even had the hole made by hitting the iceberg!
