Happy New Year Everyone.
We have made a fantastic start back to our learning in both P6 and P6/7.
We have started learning our Scottish poems. Those wishing to take part in the competition have been asked to focus on ‘Address to the Toothache’ and the rest of the class have been given a choice of two other poems to practise and learn. Our focus is on the performance aspect of the poems and they will be shared with the rest of the class. All poems are available on our Teams pages.
We have also been reading a story about ‘Neeps and Tatties’. The book is about a fall out between Neeps and Tatties and what happens as a result of this. The book held many topical themes and we were able to relate these to our own lives as well as events in history. We have also identified Scot’s words and there meanings within the text to get a deeper understanding of these. Next week we will be looking at the text in even greater detail.
In writing, we have been focussing on limericks and have written some class examples based on different themes. We have been learning about the rhythm of limericks, the structure and also rhyming words. Next week we will be starting to write our own limericks about scottish animals.
In maths we have started working on division and angles and this will continue until the February break. Continue to practise timestables games at home as this is linked to division and will help us in this area.

We have also looked at the artist Steven Brown. We found out about his life and inspirations and then created our own McCoos. We will share these with you when they are finished.
We have had a super first week and are looking forward to the term ahead.
