Another busy week in P6/5!
This week in literacy we finished our novel. We all really enjoyed this book and found it interesting. We built up some character descriptions for a few of the main characters then we used these to play a game of ‘Guess Who?’
We also wrote an imaginative story on ‘The Day Sports Day Went Wrong’. We had some very good ideas. including: people floating away during a race, a giant pig attack, a zombie apocalypse, aliens landing on our grass and acid rain! P6/5 definitely have a wild imagination!
We have been exploring different angles this week, including, right, acute, obtuse, straight and reflex. We identified different angles, then some of us used a protractor to measure and draw angles and triangles. Some of us used the corner of a bit of card/paper to measure whether an angle was right, acute or obtuse!
SPORTS DAY! All of us participated in sports day which was great. Some of our favourite events were: basketball, football kick, hockey dribble, standing long jump, shuttlecock throw, speed bounce, bean bag throw and the sprint! Our competitors did really well in the sprint and ran a really good race! Well done to Eken who came 3rd, Lewis who was runner-up in 2nd place and Ellie who was the Primary 6 CHAMPION! We also had some class members in the winning teams. Well done to Nathan in the 3rd place team and Justin in the WINNING team!!
We handed in our Personal Projects this week. Everyone has been working really hard at home and the outcomes were FANTASTIC! We all had the chance to look and read everyone’s projects yesterday, and we found out some VERY interesting facts that we did not know. For example, did you know that Evan’s Great Gran was born, raised and worked in the New Lanark mills? He also thinks there is some relation between him and David Dale! Interesting, eh? Did you also know that the wool in New Lanark was also used in Harry Potter? Emily was also interested to find out you could get married there – very ambitious! 🙂
We have also been planning our very own ‘Ladywell New Lanark Tours’. We have been working in groups to provide the public with a very special New Lanark tour. We looked at the map to identify the areas that tourists can visit. We have then used our knowledge and facts we have learned to write a commentary for the tour, some of us are even preparing our very own Audio Guide! We are very clever in P6/5!
PS. It has been a long wait for you to find out the winners of our scavenger hunt, but the winners were Emily, Ellie, Brooke and Emma finding a Chrysanthemum flower at the entrance. Well done girls!!
