We can’t have our planned Viking morning this Friday but we can still share our learning with each other. A few people managed to bring things in a little earlier than asked and I know lots of you are sharing things on the Share Space or by email. Here are just a few of the fabulous things you have made.
Hi Primary 5
Hope you are all well and looking forward to some activities and challenges. There will be some tasks for you to do in the Home Learning page and also on the school website. Please share your learning with us either on the share page or by email. We look forward to hearing from you.
P5A combined their History and Science lessons from this block to create mini shadow puppet shows. We were able to show our learning about Vikings and Light. Here are some stills from what was a very fun afternoon!
As we (hopefully) head towards Spring, here’s a selection of some of our work which was inspired by the recent wintery weather. P5A explored different media and painting techniques to create these beautiful wintery trees. We also used ‘Snow’ as a theme for writing Narrative texts where the complication was something to do with the weather. Together we think they make a pretty good addition to our already fabulous corridor.
We have been using the Cuisenaire rods to help with our division in maths but we also figured out lots of other things they could help us with. We showed number bonds to 10 and 20, number stories (ways to show a number eg 4 and be 2+2, 3+1 etc), the 2 times table and lots more.
On Wednesday 11th March we visited the National museum in Edinburgh. We started off visiting the science zone where we had great fun exploring and experimenting. We then went to see the animals before having a break for lunch. In the afternoon we went to see the Roman artefacts and had a great time hunting for various objects including sandals, swords and some Roman coins.
In P5 we have been learning about Light and Sound. This week we looked at what a light source was and what a reflector was. We also learned about natural and artificial light sources.
Every time we leave the school grounds we wear these Hi-vis bibs but did we ever really realise how effective they were? This photo shows what happens when the light from a vehicle shines on the reflective strips at night. We thought it was really cool!
P5A and B had a brilliant day at the National Museum of Scotland. We studied the world of Harald the Viking and loved seeing real Viking artefacts and evidence of their lifestyle.
We also had time to explore the rest of the Musuem from the Natural world and Technological advancements to the fabulous views from the rooftop terrace.
A HUGE thank you to all our fantastic adult helpers who gave up their whole day to come with us and lead a group – we couldn’t have done it without you!
P4/5 had a fantastic time transforming the classroom door into the book Demon Dentist. We were especially excited to see that David Walliams had liked and shared the picture on his twitter feed!
P5A were very touched when Jackson from P2/3 came to us with a lovely book for us to borrow. He had seen our Viking display and he thought we might like to read a book from his classroom called ‘ Dragon Stew’. We loved it Jackson, thank you!
