Within the Sports Academy community group we have a leadership team, a partnership team and a fundraising team.
The fundraising team have been delighted with the response to the leaflets they created and would like to thank everyone who has contributed by sending in any sports equipment they no longer use or need.
The pupils really appreciate the extra resources which are sure to enhance physical education and physical activity experiences.
So far this week in P6W has been great. On Monday, we learned how to say our likes and dislikes in Mandarin. We used the context of food to express our preferences. For example, this is how to say I like noodles: Wo xihuan miantiao and this is how to say I dont like fish: Wo bu xihuan yu.
We also started practising our class assembly with our friends from the other P6 class. Our class assembly will be taking place on the 25th of March (just putting that in, because I know you will all want to come and support us on the day!!!).
On Tuesday, we learned all about data handling. It was really interesting and we are pleased to let you know that we are able to determine/calculate the range, the mean, the mode and the median of a set of data. In gym, we are currently learning how to improve our eye-hand coordination through playing badminton. Finally, in Science, we have started learning about inheritance. We explored what characteristics are inherited and the characteristics that are not inherited. For example, we inherit our colour of eyes but our taste in food or in music are traits we don’t inherit.
Well done to everyone in primary 7 for completing their mission in learning about the Home Front and World War Two. On Thursday 28th February, the class learned a huge amount about life during the war, with hands-on experience, during a full day visit led by Dean from Homefront Histories. The day of learning included access to a range of information, stories, songs, original artifacts and various challenges.
The class have increased their knowledge and understanding in their class topic and are more eager than ever to learn even more!
We were identifying features and sections of a newspaper. You will find the title of the newspaper, date and cost on the front page. Headlines grab your attention while sub headings give you more information. Some sections from ‘First News’ are Sports in Pictures, Puzzles, World News, Crazy But True and much more!
P4/3 have been using lots of different things to make equal groups. First we counted how many of each item we had then agreed on how many groups we would need. Next we shared the items equally between the groups. Items left over we called these remainders!
We have been researching Scottish Inventors, but who do we thing was the greatest of all?
After careful discussion and debating our class all agreed that Alexander Fleming was our number one. Did you know that he accidently discovered penicillin? Without penicillin many people would have suffered longer and many would have died!
