On Monday we were excited to have our first session of hockey with Fraser from Falkirk & Linlithgow Hockey Club. We learned how to hold a hockey stick and that we use the flat side of the stick to hit the ball. Mrs Donald was very impressed by how well we managed to keep the ball under control when taking part in relay races and corners games.
In numeracy we have continued to work on our 6 and 9 times tables. We were able to discuss lots of different strategies to help us with this. Mrs Doyle showed us a clever trick using our fingers to work out the 9 times table. Ask us to show you!
In our Emotions Works lessons we have been thinking about the green behaviour cog. This cog helps us think about how we display our different emotions using our voice, body and actions. We linked our learning about the first four cogs together to complete an emotions storyboard.
In Science we have been learning about the water cycle with Mrs Begarnie. We showed our understanding of a water drop’s journey by either writing a story or creating a piece of artwork.
Thursday was 80s day which we loved! Everyone’s outfits were amazing and we got a chance to really show them off at the fashion show. We learnt what life was like in the 80s, everything from cars, toys, music, inventions and important events such as Live Aid. We also took part in a Jane Fonda workout in the hall!
As mentioned last week, we have started constructing our 3D Viking longhouses. After careful planning, we are choosing our materials wisely and really enjoying the challenge. Take a sneak peak at some of our work…
Finally, this was our last week with Mrs Donald and Mrs Fleming. We are looking forward to having Mrs Rutter as our new teacher from Monday onwards.
