We wrote Winter Haikus. The word Haiku comes from Japan.
Haikus are poems with 3 lines – the first line has 5 syllables, the second has 7 syllables and the last has 5 syllables.
Outside, icy hands,
Snowball fighting in the snow,
Cold snow in my face.
On Wednesday we made snowflakes by folding and cutting pieces of paper.
We learned about Scottish Myths & Legends. My favourite was the Kelpies. Kelpies are water horses and if you take their bridle off of them you can control them. Their weak spot is their bridle.
I liked learning about the Blue Men of Minch. They were men that had a tail like mermaids. Their skin was blue. They sank ships. They were sometimes called storm kelpies.
My second favourite was the Wulver. It is a human with a wolf head. If you’re poor they bring you fish because they love to fish. They are kind to children and adults.
In P.E. we have been practising our ball skills. We have been learning to chest pass, bounce pass, overarm throw and underarm throw. It is lots of fun!
We learned about pronouns.
Us – me – his – he – you – it
For art we looked at tartan patterns. Tartan has vertical and horizontal lines. We painted our own tartan designs and printed them on to paper.
In Maths we learned to use ‘bridging’ to add numbers.
