Hello from Primary 5
In our class this year we have 28 pupils – 14 girls and 14 boys. Our class teacher is Mrs Duncan.
Health and Wellbeing – In P.E. we are developing our ball handling skills. We do our Daily Mile each day and although the weather is getting wetter and colder we will keep it up !
Maths – We are learning about multiples, factors, symmetry, measure and fractions decimal and percentages too. We are also learning how to multiply and divide using Number Talk strategies. We will continue to learn and practise our Times Tables and related division facts.
Literacy – We have been learning “Address to a Toothache” by Robert Burns as part of P5s Scots Verse competition throughout January. We are learning our spelling words, contractions, direct and indirect speech and also how to write a sentence of 3! We are learning to write non chronological reports. We are still learning about paragraphing, punctuation and presentation when writing and will be developing our writing skills using VCOP. Our new class novel is, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” by Roald Dahl. We are also completing our Accelerated reading books each day and enjoy testing them too.
Technologies – We are using the school I Pads for research and ICT / Maths skills. We are continuing our practical electricity experiments and making circuits. Our class topic is going to be The Roman Empire later this term.
We are also keeping ourselves safe and our classroom clean by remembering to follow the COVID rules in class ! 🙂
