Primary 2 29.3.21

Primary 2 have had a super week last week. We have been learning about the types of food Romans ate and we finished off the week creating a poster with all our Roman facts. They worked in pairs to draw and write as many things as they could about the Romans. They then presented their posters to the class.

In reading we have been working on our prediction skills. The children have listened to the start of a story and then making their predictions about what they think will happen next. The children did this really well and were able to justify some of their answers.

We have been working on our 2x, 5x and 10x tables. We have been playing games, listening to songs, working out sums and writing the times tables out. It has been very tricky but the children have been working very hard!

In P.E we have been learning some new tennis skills. The children have been learning to control their rackets, catch and throw the tennis balls and have been traveling with the tennis ball on their racket. They are all doing really well and enjoying our outdoor tennis lessons.

There will be no homework set on seesaw this week. We still encourage you to read with your children and to continue practising their times tables.

We have an exciting week ahead with lots of Easter crafts, learning about Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday.

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch.

Primary 5 25.9.20

Hello,

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.

Reminders

Outdoor PE- Tuesday

Outdoor PE-Thursday

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.

Hello everyone,

It has been a great week in Primary 5!

In Reading, we are hooked on our class novel There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom as we near the end! We are so interested in seeing the big changes in the main character Bradley as he changes from the class bully to everyone’s friend! We have taken part in lots of drama-related activities, including ‘hot seating’, where the children acted out the personality of our characters and others ask them questions. We have some budding actors in our class.

In writing the children have been working on descriptive pieces. We worked on a piece to describe our physical appearance, and challenged ourselves to include as many vivid describing words as possible to our work.  Many of the children managed this brilliantly!

The children have started Tennis, in their new block of lessons for PE with Mrs Ferguson. Most children have made some great progress, and could give Andy Murray a run for his money!

The children have been working hard in the French lessons and are continuing to develop their conversation skills. Tres bien!

In ICT the children have been looking at how to keep safe and talking about our digital footprint. We talked all about the different websites and apps we use, and how much they have changed from last year.

In maths we have been exploring time and shape. In Time lessons we are currently reading time in 5 minute intervals. In our shape lessons, we have been reminding ourselves of all the 2-D Shapes we find in maths and the real-world! We discussed what maths vocabulary we can use to describe a shape, and even made up some Wanted posters with great descriptions of shapes that had committed unspeakable crimes!
