Reading

Read a book that you have at home with an adult.  Draw a picture of your main character and write a description of them.

  • Think about how they look.
  • What are they wearing?
  • What qualities do they have? (kind, caring etc.)

 

Writing

What would you do if you had a pet dragon?

Think about:

  • Food
  • Where it would stay
  • Exercise

 

Now write a story with a dragon in it.

  • Why not add some pictures.

 

 

Maths

3D Shape

Have a hunt around your house to see what 3d shapes you can find.

Create a tally chart that you could use to record your findings as you hunt for 3D shapes. Keep a tally of how many you find of each shape.

What was the most common 3D shape in your home?

Tell an adult 5 things about 3D shapes.

 

Other Ideas

  1. Look outside and have a look to see what animals you can find and draw them.

It might be a butterfly, a bird, a squirrel, a dog.

  1. The Ancient Egyptians: Draw the River Nile and write 4 facts about it.
  2. Use Education City and Sumdog to complete the games set.

 

 

 

 

 

Anderson Shelter Presentations

Last week we completed our Anderson Shelter project with class talks!

 

Each talk was individual, very unique and completed to a very high standard!

 

Here are some photos of the children during their talks!

Also a big well done to Brian who completed the optional homework task of baking a cake using a World War 2 recipe!

 

Dinosaurs in Primary 1

In our topic this term we have been learning all about dinosaurs. We have been finding out facts about dinosaurs, reading and writing dinosaur stories, learning different dinosaur names, creating pictures of dinosaurs and we even created our own special dinosaur names for ourselves!

Here are some of the activities we have been enjoying in class:

Space

Primary 5 have started their journey into space through their topic. We have discussed what we already know and what we would like to know. We added this to our floorbook and we can’t wait to add lots more information and facts to it as we go along.

What we know:

  • space has no gravity
  • Neil Armstrong was the first man on the Moon
  • there are craters on the Moon
  • there are 8 planets
  • the Earth was made by the Big Bang.

What we want to know:

  • what are the planets made of?
  • more about all the planets
  • can we live on Mars?
  • when is the next eclipse?
  • Are there more than 2 galaxies?
  • How hot is the Sun?
  • How big is the Sun?
  • Why are there craters on the Moon?

We can’t wait to share what we learn about space with you.
