P7b Weekly Update.

‘ There is joy and wonder everywhere, when you see the world through the eyes of a child.’

Numeracy: Numeracy this week has been great fun, we have moved on from the formal written methods of addition, subtraction and multiplication, we are now learning the formal written method to solve division problems. It was tricky at first, but we have the hang of it now! – EM

Literacy: This week in Literacy we learnt about homophones, homophones are words that sound the same but have different spelling and meaning. Some examples are the words guest and guessed, passed and past or herd and heard. We have been learning about inference. This term we have being researching and comparing the differences and similarities of Scotland and Brazil. Mrs. Matos set up a crime scene in which Christ the Redeemer, in Rio, was vandalized. After we had discussed the meaning of inference and how it can be used in the world of life and work, we wrote a short paragraph about the crime, using the evidence to help us to infer what might have happened.- EC

Science: In science this week we learnt about classification keys. We worked in pairs to make a classification key about penguins. In different pairs we started making one about sweets! We made up funny names for the sweets we didn’t know. It was a real treat! – LC

1+2 French: In French this week we revised our numbers to 50, played some lotto bingo and hide the object game. While one person searched for the object, the rest of the class had to count in French, the closer they got the louder we counted, we were surprised our loud counting didn’t crack the windows! – DR-S

Buddy Time: This week with our buddies we had the opportunity to help them with ICT. We helped them to log onto the netbooks and Sumdog. We helped them to become familiar with how to navigate and play the different games. We used our school values of  confidence, kindness and inclusion to help our buddies!
