Primary 5

Hello another busy week in P5.

In writing this term we will be initially concentrating on writing instructions. This week the children wrote notes to help them write instructions on how to use their wearable tech.  Next week they will write the actual instructions in sentences, using ‘bossy’ verbs and time conjunctions.

We started our topic The Scottish Wars of Independence. The children have shared what they already know and what they would like to find out about. They completed a challenging timeline which gave them an overview of key events.

In maths the children will be investigating 3D objects and their relationship with 2D shapes.  With Mr Shanks and Mrs Muir the children are learning how to measure angles using a protractor. They are also learning the names of the different types of angles.

All children have been given a fluency book to practice reading skills at home. Please ensure all children have this book in school with them every day.

The children have been working hard learning their Scottish poems. Some can already recite their poem without looking at the words. They are now working on adding expression and actions to enhance the poem.
