The 5-Point Scale arrives in P3A!

Congratulations to two members of our class who took part in Pedal for Scotland last Sunday. Well done boys! We are very proud of you!

In Literacy this week, we have been looking at answering and creating questions about texts. On Monday we looked at the role of a questioner and in pairs, we constructed our own questions using ‘who, what, where, when, how and why’ openers. We played a game on Education City called ‘Wild River’ where we had to answer who, what, when, where, why and how questions about events in the story. Afterwards, we read an extract from Jack and the Beanstalk and we answered questions about the events to show our understanding.

In Numeracy and Maths we have been working with numbers to 1000. We have been learning to find numbers before and after a given number and to find numbers between. We used different songs and a Splat Square to revise numbers before, after and between to 100 and then we used this knowledge to find numbers before, after and between to 1000.

On Thursday, we continued to learn about symmetry. We revised finding lines of symmetry using a mirror and then we looked at shapes which have more than one line of symmetry or none at all. We also explored how to make pictures and shapes symmetrical.

This week we started to use the 5-Point scale. We looked at different cartoon faces and discussed how we felt each of the faces was feeling. We listened to a story called ‘When My Worries Get Too Big’ to help us to understand the 5-Point scale. Miss Harrison read out different scenarios and we had to rate how we would feel and decide where we would be on the scale. We will be using the 5-Point scale in our class everyday as it is very important that we are able to talk about our feelings.

Thank you for reading our blog post. We hope that everyone has a healthy and happy long weekend.
