# Buddy the elf

Buddy the elf arrived in our class this week. He asked us to take an “elfie” so he had a photo of the class. We are looking forward to seeing what he gets up to over the next few weeks.

# Weekly Review – W/B 15th November

Another busy week in P6….

-We have been learning about the animals that live in the understorey and canopy layers of the jungle. We carried out more research and wrote and information report using our notes.

-We researched snakes and choose one species to recreate using paper plates. They look amazing hanging in our class.

-We have been learning about factors and multiples in maths. We also explored prime numbers and what makes them special.

-For book week we read a story called “The Last Wolf” and then predicted where the main character would be in 50 years time. It made us think about the important issue of sustainability again.

# Weekly Review W/B 8th Nov

What an excellent week!

• We have been learning about the story of the Poppy and what Remembrance Day is all about. We created some beautiful poppy pictures and all took part in a one minute silence.
• We have been learning about animals that live on the forest floor and researched an animal of our choice. We wrote an information report on our chosen animal and then created a piece of art work based on one of these.
• In Maths we have finished our block on subtraction and have now moved on to multiplication. Remember you can practise the trickier times tables on Hit the Button. This will help you increase your recall speed and confidence with these.
• In Health and WellBeing we have been talking about reasons why people might take drugs or alcohol and their impact on peoples’ mood. We have continued to talk about relationships and how we form these.
