We have had another busy and varied week. We have started our ‘Changing Me’ topic and on Friday had a look at the reproductive process in plants. We had drama with Izzy again and we’re finding out about Shetland stories to retell. We have been developing our map skills and this week looked at angles, bearings and coordinates. In our topic we are thinking about ‘Places that make us happy’ and we’ll be presenting all that information soon. In French we are learning how to describe ‘Ma famille’.
Nathyn helped us all with some really difficult problem solving today in maths. Not only did he work out the difficult calculations, but he explained it really well to the class. We were all very impressed.
My maths group has worked so hard over the last few weeks on all the different topics, that today we decided to have a fun session where they could choose to play a range of maths / problem solving / logical thinking games. It was lovely to watch all the skills demonstrated and see how well everyone worked together or on their own. There was some real determination shown especially for some of the shape tasks.
In September three boys took part in the Scottish Maths Challenge, where people take part all around Scotland. It was very challenging for the three boys involved but they all really enjoyed it. We sent the results in and are waiting for the results and scores to come back. All the challenges were challenging.
