Primary 5

Another busy week in P5. The children have been working hard on different areas of the curriculum.

The children are building with excitement about going to Lockerbie Manor.  Hopefully you received your letter about Lockerbie Manor and the list of items the children need to take. If you are unable to bring any of these items please contact us at school and we will see if we can help. We hope to see you at the meeting on Thursday 6th February where you will be able to find out more information and ask questions. Children are not to attend this meeting.

In writing the children are continuing to learn how to write instruction. P5G wrote about how to play a game and P5M wrote about how to make a sandwich. Some of the instructions given were very interesting!

The children worked on a challenge this week about Life in the 13th century. Each group had to research information about Life in the country, life in a castle or life in a burgh. They worked hard and have created a poster showing key facts and pictures to illustrate what they have learned. You will be able to have a look at the posters during Parents evening.

In numeracy all children are using their times tables’ knowledge to complete multiplying or dividing tasks. Some children need to practice their times tables so they can recall facts quickly and accurately. We are encouraging them to use Education City for this. Next week we will be showing this website to you during our shared start/finish sessions on Wednesday 5th February. We hope you will be able to join us at one of the sessions to practice your recall of the times tables!

Primary 3 5.9.16

Primary 3 were writing instructions for playground games last week. We played three games and decided which one we wanted to write our instructions for. The children were able to write them in the correct order and use a variety of different openers. After all the instructions were written we put them do the test. They all worked out brilliantly!

Primary 3 were very active in maths this week, working around stations, playing board games, on the smartboard and used the ipads. We even managed some mental maths using our number fans. We were very impressed with their addition and subtraction skills.

We finished our work on the Active section of the SHANARRI wheel. We put our bodies to the test by raising our heart rates and describing/drawing what happens to our bodies when we exercise. All the children did very well identifying the changes.

 

Reminders:
