Numeracy and Mathematics

Although it’s been a short week, we have continued our work on Information Handling by looking at straight line graphs. We began by plotting data based on the average temperatures and rainfall in our area into Microsoft Excel before applying our ICT skills to create straight line charts using Microsoft Word. On Friday, we analysed and interpreted information from comparative line graphs where more than one set of data is being compared.

Literacy and English

No reading homework this week with it being a short one, much to the delight of the children. We will continue with our group novels next week. This week our focus in literacy was proofreading and up-levelling, two very important skills required for writing and creating texts. We were given a passage that required spelling and grammatical errors to be corrected before up-levelling the same passage to make it more interesting and exciting for the reader through the use of ambitious VCOP. Mr. Logan is continuing to look through our personal projects and feedback will be given on these next week.

Health and Wellbeing

Athletics is our new focus for P.E, with the overall aim being to improve our levels of fitness over the next 8 weeks. As a baseline assessment of our fitness levels, we took part in the Cooper Test (12 minute run) and measured the distance we were able to cover over the allotted time. At the end of this term, we will redo this test with the hope being that our overall distance increases. There was no golf this week, however, we continued with our rugby taster sessions and enjoyed getting out in the sunshine to further develop our ball handling and passing skills.

Next week:

  • Monday – EE2 forms for Time Capsule trip, George Allan football letters to be returned
  • Monday – After school football from 3.30 – 4.30pm
  • Tuesday – Golf sessions at Kingsfield from 1.00 – 2.00pm
  • Tuesday – Rugby taster session from 2.30 – 3.15pm
  • Wednesday – Some pupils visiting Linlithgow Academy at 11.30am

Enjoy the sunshine!
