This week we have again won the “peg challenge” for showing that we can quickly line up in a quality line and move around the school quietly. Peg Bear says, “Can we do it three weeks in a row?????”
In writing we were playing VCOP games to increase our knowledge of openers and connectives. We used “Kung FU “punctuation to help us and also played the “Birdie” sentence coloured ball game.
In ICT we have been using SumDog to help us with our Maths and improve our ICT skills.
In Art we have been looking at the work of the artist Paul Klee and designed colourful footprints which are now on display outside our classroom.
We have also been looking at and learning about the “Incredible 5-Point Scale” and created our own charts to help us calm down if we feel that we need to do this at school. We have designed our own characters to go with each level of the scale.
Today we selected which Committee we would like to be a member of this year. The committees are Rights Respecting Schools, Sports Leaders, Health & Wellbeing, Digital Leaders, JRSO, Green Team and Pupil Council.
This week we have been working on our new spelling patterns and received our new reading books. We are also taking part in the First Minister’s 10,000 book reading challenge.
This morning after our spelling test we took part in the Big Maths challenge to improve our mental maths skills.
In class this week we have been continuing to read our new class novel entitled “School Ship Tobermory” by Alexander McCall Smith. Ben and Fee have now arrived at the school and are meeting lots of new people. We are looking forward to finding out what happens next week.
By Mr Ritchie and all the “Tiggerrific” P4/5s.
