P5 – The River Clyde – Can you help us?

Image result for john brown's shipyard

As you may be aware, our IDL topic this term is the River Clyde. In the coming weeks we will be looking at the many changes that have taken place over the years, both in the landscape and the industries found along the river.

We were hoping that someone at home, may it be mum, dad or even grandparents, has played a part in these industries in some way and would be willing to come in and share their experiences with us.

If you are able to help us, please leave a post on our blog or put a note in your child’s diary.

Thanking you in advance.

Good afternoon, I hope you are all having a great holiday weekend.  Homework and news as follows:

Spelling – Spelling this week will be from list 5.

Reading – Books should be returned on Tuesday 25th September. We will be looking at author, main characters, main events and favourite parts tomorrow in class.  New reading books will be out tomorrow afternoon.

Maths – Maths homework this week will be looking at mental addition using some of the strategies we were looking at in class:

Partitioning and Rounding then Adjusting the answer.  For example:

Partitioning

25 + 35    ——–20+30 = 50

5+5= 10

50+10 = 60

or Rounding then Adjusting your answer:

25+35 ———–30+35 = 65

65- 5 =   60 

 

Topic  – Pupils should be working on their personal Clyde topic homework.  This is due week beg Mon 8th October.  See previous post for details.

News

Thank you for returning the parent evening choice forms.  Parent appointments will be out as soon as possible.  I look forward to seeing you all then.

River Clyde Personal Project Presentation

Learning Outcome:  I can research a  given topic and create a detailed presentation.

Skill for Learning

Application & Knowledge: I can apply my knowledge of a given topic to plan and produce an interesting presentation.

 Skill for Work

I can organise my time and resources independently to ensure my presentation is completed in the allocated time.

Background

To build further on your presentation skills you have to prepare a personal project to present to your peers. Presentations play a huge part in our learning and being able to present to your peers, with confidence, is a great skill to learn.

Task

What you need to know: Your personal project should be about the River Clyde. You may choose any aspect you wish.

What you need to do: You can present your project in any way you choose. This might be in written form, a PowerPoint presentation, a booklet, a video or even a model. In other words, you have the choice to choose the way you feel will best help you to demonstrate your knowledge of your chosen topic. This project is all homework based therefore you need to think about the resources you will have access to: books, library, internet, personal accounts etc.

What you need to think about: You can use whatever you need to describe your personal project: photographs, videos, props etc. Try to think about why you picked this area for your project. What was it that interested you about it? Remember some people in class may know nothing about the area you have chosen to discuss, so you must explain it in detail.

How to get started: Get all of your ideas down on paper and then decide which ones are the most relevant and will best engage your audience. If you require any resources (paper, etc.) from school please ask.

 

Product Criteria

·         You have 3 weeks to pull your presentation together so use your time wisely. You will be presenting your information to the class the week beginning Monday 7th October 2018. Remember to try and present your information in a creative way.

·         This is an independent research project. It is your responsibility to organise your time effectively and ensure you are putting in enough effort.

·         Everyone will approach this task in different ways so don’t worry if your friends are doing something different from you. Have faith in what you have to say and it will all work out.

·         This is your chance to show just how well you can take responsibility for your own learning.

Happy researching!
