P5B Week Commencing 30th April 2018

In Maths we have been learning how to identify a basic fraction and determine what fraction of a shape has been chosen. We then used this knowledge to help us to recognise and be able to find equivalent fractions and also to simplify fractions.  When simplifying a fraction we have to remember to keep going with our answer until it can’t be simplified any further.  On Wednesday with Mrs Hogg we started work on volume and were learning to understand the connection between litres and millilitres. On Friday we challenged ourselves by taking part in BIG Maths and the Multiplication quiz of the week.

In Literacy we have been looking at using our VCOP strategies to up-level our writing and also how to correctly use paragraphs to help us sequence our writing to make it easier for the reader to understand.

In Reading we have been continuing with our Literacy Circle Groups and are enjoying taking part in the different roles that make up the circle. We are all enjoying discussing our books, asking questions and sharing ideas about the book we are reading.

In art we have been looking at the work of some famous Scottish Landscape artists and have started work on producing a landscape painting of our own. We have begun by splitting the picture into different sections and looking at the way light and shade makes up the image and can affect the colours that we will use.

In PE we have been working on our fitness levels by taking part in different activities at each fitness station e.g. skipping, sit ups, bench jumps etc.

In French we have been revising what we know about colours, weather and the different greetings that can be used when speaking to people.

In Science we continued with our work on light sources and have also been looking at how shadows are formed.
