You won’t believe your eyes!

P5a learned about a trick photography technique today and took some unbelievable shots!

In our novel study ‘Max and the Millions’ Max and Mr Darrow made tiny models and an entire miniature civilisation, called ‘millions’.

Today we learned about ‘forced perspective’ where you make things appear bigger or smaller depending on perspective.

We had a lot of fun and improved our photos as we went along.













Busy week in p2

We have had a very busy week in p2.

We have explored designing our own gardens in art and with loose parts in relation to our novel study.

 

 

 

 

 

We explored subtraction through games, e.g., snakes and ladders in reverse and using playing cards.

 

 

 

 

We explored our sense of smell this week in science. Scents we like and don’t like, as well as trying to guess the scent.

We have also been learning about rhyming words, practising our handwriting of focused letters and reading.

This week was our first assembly which the children really enjoyed. They explored resilience and preparation skills of climbers in the olympics and how they can relate to when we are facing challenges.

Well done P2. Have a lovely weekend 🙂

Weekly highlights

We started this week watching assembly which included a clip of Olympic climbing. Our task was to recognise which ‘building resilience’ strategies the climbers used.
We said

  • get active as you need strength to climb
  • have a goal to aim for the top to win
  • keep connected, talking to each other about the route up
  • challenge your mindset by telling yourself you can do it
  • Look on the bright side as you might be feeling a bit worried
  • respect yourself by telling yourself to have a go
  • make a difference as you can go high then even higher

We completed making our miniature castles based on our class novel Max and the Millions. We then looked at the work of artist Willard Wigan who makes microscopic models. We made a person using pipe cleaners and are beginning to imagine a scene from a story around our castle and person.

In writing we wrote a description of our school, after we had decided on paragraph subheadings as a class.

In maths we wrote numbers in words and numerals and placed numbers on a number line which can be challenging if we need to work out what each mark stands for.

We are going elect a class rep for both the Pupil Council and the Sustainable Squad so we are busy thinking about what it takes to do a good job.

In health and well-being we are learning about the effects on our health of too much or too little and we are relating this to the effects of alcohol.

Here we are together enjoying the good weather.

A fun learning week in P2 !

We have been working very hard this week. Our new book for

Rhyme and Analogy is,” Scat, cat!” and our focus for rhyming patterns are :  at  in   ed  and og. We have been trying very hard to read along with the story, find the rhyming words on the page then think of others we know.

 

Can you find these rhyming patterns in books you read or signs you see at home?

We have been thinking about being good friends for HWB and also how we can be kind and caring towards others. We made friendship bracelets. Our first attempt with wool was a little tricky so, we tried an easier version with paper the next day. We were pleased with both designs.

For our senses work this week we explored smelling and it was fun smelling the different smells in the jars. Some of our guesses were quite close but, the onion salt had us puzzled – we thought it was crisps. That one had a strong smell and made our noses twitch!

In our play we have been having a great time exploring sight and making funny glasses. We have enjoyed being very creative in our designs. Maybe we have some opticians in the making!

We were so excited to discover what was in the box Mrs Little had dropped off. It was a box of dragons and dinosaurs and we had so much fun playing with them. Maybe next week we will get very creative with them in our play.

For our writing this week we spent a lot of time exploring describing words, looking very closely at the character of Tomas in our class novel and then drawing what we thought he looked like. We found the coloured picture on the cover gave us the most clues about what Tomas looks like.

We have been measuring with cubes today and we have started to have a guess   (  estimate)  measurements. Some of us have found it hard to understand that our guess can be quite different from the actual measurement.

Can you find anything at home that you think measures 15 cubes?

Thank you to everyone who has brought in a shoe box. A big thank you to Miss Muir who has been collecting boxes for all 3 classes!

 

Next week we might find out what we are going to do with the shoe boxes!

 

 

Our week in P7B

Primary 7B have had yet another busy week at school! Our Prefect Rotas have been put in place and some of the children have had the opportunity to carry out a range of jobs throughout the school. Thank you for all of your hard work!

In class we have:

  • Investigated the short e sound in spelling.
  • Revised and consolidated  decimal fractions, looking at tenths and hundredths. We have also continued to look at lines of symmetry in complex shapes and patterns.
  • Studied a piece of descriptive writing and examined it’s key features. We had a go at writing our own descriptive writing piece on the role of Firefighters.
  • Continued  our Novel Study, Divided City, and have had time to carryout our own research on a theme in the novel that interests us. Some of us have chosen religion, football or asylum seekers for example.
  • Looked at the work of Glasgow artist, Charles Rennie MacIntosh, and planning a piece of art which we will share with you next week.
  • Talked about the SHANARRI indicators in Health and Wellbeing and how these apply to us every day.
  • Watched our first school assembly of the year and were reminded of Skipper and the tools he uses to help him to be resilient.

Consider the points below and leave a comment:

1. What did I enjoy learning about most this week? Why?

2. What would you like to learn more about over the next few weeks?

3.  Which tools from Skipper’s toolkit did you use this week?

4. Did you help a classmate or pupil in the school this week? How did you help them and how did it make you feel afterwards?
