P5S – The Battle of Stirling Bridge

During our topic lesson today we were learning about the Battle of Stirling Bridge. We learned when and where it took place, the people involved, the layout of the battlefield and the final outcome. Please tell someone at home some of the interesting information we discussed.

Your task this afternoon had three parts to it and they are starting to take shape nicely. Remember you have tomorrow’s topic session to ensure they are completed to a high standard and ready for your wall space.

Before leaving class today you completed an exit pass where you had to share a piece of information you learned today. Have a look below. Can you find your “pass”?

 

   

P5 – Scottish Wars of Independence – Personal Project

As part of our topic you have the opportunity to show your knowledge and understanding of the Scottish Wars of Independence by presenting a personal project to your peers.

This is a long-term project which should be completed at home over the next 4 weeks. If you require any resources which we can source in school, please ask. Your completed project should be brought to school on Monday 2nd October as you will be presenting your information on this day.

Please find below the task sheet with all of the required details. A paper copy will also be issued in class for those of you who are unable to access our blog on a regular basis.

Learning Outcome

I can create a detailed presentation on and area of The Scottish Wars of Independence that is of interest to me. I can investigate a Scottish historical theme to discover how past events or the actions of individuals, or groups, have shaped Scottish society.

SOC 2-03a

 

THE SCOTTISH WARS OF INDEPENDENCE

PERSONAL PROJECT

Skill for Learning

Application & Knowledge: I can apply my knowledge of The Scottish Wars of Independence to plan and produce an interesting and creative presentation.

Skill for Work

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

 

Background

In class we have been learning about a variety of aspects relating to The Scottish Wars of Independence. Now it is your turn to become independent historical researchers! You are being asked to find out about an area of the Wars that is of particular interest to you and share your findings with your peers.

 

Task

What you need to know: You are free to complete your personal project in any way you wish. You can pick something very specific (clans, weapons, a particular key figure or battle) or something a bit more general (Scottish heritage). If you wish, you may even choose an area we have not covered in class.

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, 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.

 

Product Criteria

•  You are free to present your researched topic in any way you choose. However, try to think outside of the box a little. In other words, be creative!

•  You have 4 weeks to pull your project together so use your time wisely. You should be prepared to bring your completed project to school on Monday 2nd October.

•  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 your project and 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.

NEW! Stage Blogs and Site Changes!

You may have noticed some changes on our school blogs. To allow us to keep you updated with all the wonderful work happening at Bishopton Primary we have had to set up each stage with their own blog. These look just the same as before and you should be able to navigate between the main school site, and the class blogs, easily.

For example, if your child is in P5S you can click on the link down the left hand side of the main page to access the posts specific to them, or go via the Class Blogs menu at the top of the page. Both links will take you to the same place. This is where posts meant only for P5S will be located.

To view posts meant for everyone (eg. upcoming events, menu changes, school-wide news) you can select Whole School News from the list on the left hand side or from the News menu at the top of the page. These posts are also located in a section on the right hand side of all of the class blogs.

We highly recommend subscribing to your class updates (using the Subscribe to Primary… link). This will send an email every evening with all updates specific to the class and all Whole School News posts.

We hope you enjoy using the blogs and seeing what is happening in the school.

Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are having a great weekend so far. Homework is now well under way and the standard is certainly improving from week to week. Keep it up!  Here is your homework for the coming week. As always, our reminders are at at the bottom of the post (we have quite a few this week).

Please remember, if you are unsure of any aspect of your homework, to ask in class as soon as possible. You may also leave a comment on the blog for me. Please DO NOT leave any questions until the day your homework is due as this will be too late.

Spelling:  You should complete either list 21 or list 32 in your jotter. Please remember each word (12 in total) should be written out twice in your jotter. A further two words with the same spelling rule should be found and recorded in your jotter. Choose 5 of your spelling words and write an uplevelled sentence for each of them.

Please ensure you are including a date and title at the beginning of your work. Your title should be your list number. This task should be completed and returned to school by Friday.

Reading:  Book Detectives homework was issued on Thursday and should be completed for this Thursday (7th). Please click here for details of the task.

Personal Reading Challenge: You now have 6 weeks left of our Personal Reading Challenge. You are aiming to read the number of books you decided on at the beginning of term. Please remember you should be reading your personal reader at home, not just during ERIC time. Once you complete a book, please remember to record it in our class reading record.

Please bring your book to school as this will allow you to read it during our ERIC sessions.

Maths:  I was very impressed at how well the maths homework was completed this week. Keep an eye on our blog for some examples of very good work.

Please remember ALL workings should be shown (this will allow me to see any mistakes you may have made in your calculations) and a sentence answer should be given, eg. There are 258 boys in Bishopton Primary School. Please date your work and give it a title.

Please click the relevant group below to access your homework. This task should be completed in your maths homework jotter for Friday.
