Our class novel is Max and the Millions. We have been working on creating different perspectives when we draw. This is a self portrait from the perspective of Luke. (He is one of the millions in our story.)
We have also enjoyed:
-Our first session of P.E. with Mrs Fletcher
-Making leaves to add to our “Tou-can” do it display
-Having fun in our classroom
-Our first music lesson with Mrs Inglis. We learned about rhythm and beat. We also started to learn about the Garage Band App on our i-pads.
-Writing descriptions about characters in our novel.
-We started perspective skyscraper artwork. Lookout for examples next week.
-Watching our first virtual assembly.
-Learning about the properties of 2D shapes and place value in large numbers.
It was fun and we did more creative activities. Flo

P5 you have been brilliant! We are so proud of the way you have adapted to Home Learning and kept in touch with your teachers. Over the last week most of you have set up your new iPads and have been busy exploring them, ready for exciting times ahead in P6 and we know you’re going to be teaching your new teachers a thing or two!
We hope you all have a lovely summer and look forward to seeing you back in school in August. Look after yourselves and, as Mrs Wilson would say, take care of your Mums and Dads.

Happy Monday Primary 5. We hope you’ve had a nice weekend. The Sway for this week and last is still available from the Home Learning Page but we know some of you are always looking for extra things to do. If you haven’t already done so, why not try one of the new Kingsland Challenges with your family. They are available on the school website but here are some quick links too:
Challenge 6 – Peebles Town Trail
Challenge 7 – Be a Maths Detective
Hi Primary 5
We hope you are enjoying the lovely weather we have been having (don’t forget your sun cream and to drink plenty of water!). Our next block of Home Learning is available form the Tab above – remember to get in touch if you need any help with anything.
This week many of the staff are involved with activities at the Hub so if you don’t get a response from your teacher straight away we promise to get back to you as soon as we can.
If you took part in last week’s Kingsland Challenge from Mrs Fletcher, please remember to email your teacher to tell us how many miles you and your family clocked up over the week. There is also a new Kingsland Challenge on the School Website. Have fun!
We are so pleased with how well you are adapting to this different way of working Primary 5. Thank you to everyone who has emailed us, shared what they’ve been up to or joined us on Teams – we love hearing from you. You are all doing a fabulous job and we are very proud of you. New home learning for this week and next is available on the Home Learning page above. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or problems or just want to say hello.
If you have watched the Kingsland Virtual Assembly from 27th April you will have seen that last week I had a tropical desert island in my house. This week my daughter and I transformed it into a backdrop inspired by a well known series of books and films. Any guesses?
What books have you been reading while you have been at home?
We hope you had a lovely time at home over the last two weeks. Your next set of suggested home learning tasks will be coming later today and we look forward to hearing from you. If you’re desperate to get started on something, why not head over to the school website and check out the new Kingsland Challenge!
KPS Challenge 2: Origami
It’s not the end of term any of us were expecting but we just wanted to thank you all for your hard work this term (parents as well as pupils) and to wish you a very Happy Easter. We hope you have a lovely restful time over the next two weeks and we’ll be back online on Monday 20th to share more learning with you.
Love Mrs Little and Mrs Rand
