Second last week in Primary Five completed!
This week in Writing, the class wrote their own end of year report! The children identified what they had done well, what they enjoyed and any improvements they were going to make in P6. It was very interesting reading what the children thought of their progress. Please find these sheets in with their teacher written end of year report that the children will bring home.
In Numeracy both classes are continuing to work on decimals. This week we looked at hundredths–how to write them, order them and their connection to tenths. We are pleased to report that the children completed these activities very well.
In Reading, the children are finishing off their non-fiction book on the Scottish Wars of Independence. We are very impressed with the detail contained in the books and there are some fantastic pictures and diagrams. The children will bring the finished books home next week for you to look at. We hope you are impressed as we are!
On Friday we were able to watch the P7 parade. The children had made flags and banners to wish the P7s good luck at High School. The children were very excited to see the P7s dancing and the music was very danceable!
The children had been working on a secret mission to thank Mr Shanks for all he has done for them and the school. P5 created a cloak with good luck messages on it which Mr Shanks was presented with when he visited the classroom. The children had also written acrostic poems listing all the things he does. We all agreed that it was a lot!
PE- Tuesday and Thursday – Please remember to provide your child with a water bottle on these days J
Next week the children will be watching a pantomime, Alice in Wonderland, on Wednesday. If the children want to bring a snack to eat while watching this they can. We are all very excited to see this.
Have a lovely weekend.
