Primary 5A have certainly demonstrated their creativity and commitment to learning this week through their choice of class talk presentations. Both P5 teachers are absolutely delighted with the class talks this week and have learned so much about a variety of subjects!!
I would like to say a huge thank you, not only to the children in both classes but for all the support that was given at home to help your child prepare for their class talk. I think there will be a lot of people that will take up new hobbies after this week!!!
We have been focussing on fractions this week. We have looked at equivalent fractions, improper fractions and mixed numbers. We recognised the link between fractions and the need to remember or times tables. We worked with partners to support each other to complete equivalent fraction posters, noticing the pattern when completing the sequence of fractions.
What a wonderful day we had on Thursday when we visited the Union Canal! The sun certainly shone and we thoroughly enjoyed our boat trip along the canal. Linton was very informative and shared with us the importance water safety. We now know never to jump in the canal after our pets as they will manage to swim out safely. There is 695 million gallons of water in the Union Canal and they add 400 gallons of water each day if it hasn’t rained a lot!
We have been creating Burgh Beautiful posters for a competition. The theme is anti-litter, dog fouling and recycling to encourage all to take responsibility for keeping the environment clean and Linlithgow looking beautiful.
Have a fantastic weekend and I hope the sun shines for us all!
