Eden thought up this sentence to include all of the words!
‘I wish I had the skill to sing lyrics to my song while eating pancakes and syrup in the cygnet infested water while not missing the finish of the swimming race.’ Brilliant!

voting for Rosie as Pupil Council rep and Vivienne for Sustainable Squad rep
Well done to all the pupils who applied for the jobs of class council rep and sustainable squad rep. They were all well prepared and spoke clearly and confidently about their strengths and hopes for the coming year.
Our class council representative this year is Jade (secretary – Lola).
Our sustainable squad representative is Caitlin (secretary Ella).
A huge thank you to the pupils from primary 6/7 who helped us create our animations using our pipe cleaner people. We took photos on our I pads and then put them into I movie to create a short film. We really enjoyed this and will try adding some background scenery and sound effects next week.
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.
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.
The main character in our class novel, Max, is deaf and we have been thinking about how people can communicate if they can’t hear. Our challenge this week is to learn how to sign our name using sign language. Why don’t you have a go?
