A short but busy week in Primary 5!
In writing the children continue to work on descriptive pieces. This week we were looking at ‘My Favourite Place’, and we had lots of lovely discussions about the different places where we feel most calm, happy or excited. The children then wrote some wonderful pieces about their ‘Favourite Place’ using lots of interesting describing words.
In Reading the children are continuing to find out more about the characters in our novel ‘There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom’. This week has been all about birthday parties- who we would invite, creating invitations and deciding what present we would buy. The children were then able to use the internet to try and find the cost of the present they chose. Some were very surprised at how expensive things were!
With Mrs Ferguson in PE Tennis lessons are progressing well. Many are good at hitting the ball with the racquet and making it go in the right direction!
In Numeracy the children have been working with numbers up to 100 000. This has included rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000; estimating where numbers are on a line; writing numbers in words and using digits.
Homework will start next week and will be on TEAMS. Assignments will include activities connected to Literacy and Numeracy as well as other areas of the curriculum. All children have been issued with their Glow logins and passwords again so all should be able to access this homework. If there are any issues please contact us at school.
Outdoor PE- Tuesday
Please ensure the children have the correct kit for going outdoors- trainers, trackies/joggers, t-shirt and fleece/hoodie. They can come to school wearing their PE kit but a school jumper must be worn during the day. They can then change into their outdoor jumper when we go outside.
The children have chosen a book to read for enjoyment in class and it would be appreciated if you could continue to encourage your child to read for enjoyment at home.
Thank you for your continued support.
Have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Gilmour, Miss Munro and Mrs Muir
