## Blog P6A: WE 5.10.18 Fun week in P6A!

Fun week in P6A!

This week was amazing!

On Monday we had the laptops; we went on Sumdog and worked on decimals. Then after lunch we worked with our P2 pals on adding 10, for example 6+10=16. After that we did walk a mile. Then we read Kid Normal: that is our class novel.

On Tuesday we did symbol work: we were working on adding, subtracting and rounding in word problems. We also did reading and comprehension in our reading groups.

On Wednesday we had a visit from Mr Wells and Mr Logan just to see how we are doing in the class. We all did very well and we could answer any questions that they asked us. We could also answer questions that they asked us all about what our learning intention was.

On Thursday we did P.E and we did netball and we all played a game of it. We also had Science and we talked about electricity and different types of energy. We talked about Health and wellbeing and all of our emotions that we experience and how we show them

Have a good weekend from P6A

## WE 21.9.18 Short week in P6A

Health and Wellbeing

On Wednesday we had a few matches of netball and we all did amazing, we all enjoyed it. On Thursday we did some more work on resilience and we carried on with last week work, however this week we did strategies to help us with difficult situations, we were all very open with our strategies and we helped each other with some things that help us.

Numeracy and Maths

In Maths this week we did adding and subtraction but mainly subtraction with big numbers like 19056. We used blocks to show the different places of the numbers and we made them into the answers that we ended up with. We also showed the different strategies we used.

This week in Maths we were working on rounding to the nearest ten, hundred and thousand. We have started BIG MATHS and we all really enjoy singing the song before the challenge begins.

In literacy this week we did comprehensions on our reading books we answered questions about the characters, settings and phrases. We also did our reading groups and we read with the Teacher and got our reading homework.

In P.E. we played a game called ‘Camouflage’ and we all really enjoyed hiding and trying to make sure the person in the middle doesn’t see us!

On Thursday we went into the Community wing to do some talk about our new feelings chart and how we feel and how to control getting angry and frustrated and we explained that we all get angry some times.

On Monday we went along to the P2 classrooms and spent some time with our P2 pals, we showed them how to log on to a computer and how to write their names in fancy font and styles we all really enjoy helping our P2 pals to learn.

On Friday we went to the assembly hall to listen to the assembly by the P7’s and they talked about resilient and to stay resilient when tough things happen they gave us strategies that would help us when we need it.

Hello everybody. Hope all is going well. We have been very busy this week in P6A.

In maths we have been doing rounding to the nearest 10,100 and 1000 and multiplying these numbers as well.

In science we have been learning about different types of energy and we are going to watch an electricity video clip to remind us how dangerous electricity is.

In P.E. we did Bochia and netball. In netball the hoops were very high and one team scored 2 goals.

In literacy we rewrote a story called Palmer and the Mermaid. There was a fisherman and he jumped into the sea to keep the Mermaid happy but it was a trap. He got 3 wishes from the Mermaid and he only got to keep the wishes alive if he kept his promise to join her after 9 years.

Recently we have started to do homework which is writing our spelling words 3 times a week and we get tested on them on Fridays, also we do one spelling task a week. Lastly we have 7 school tasks to do at home that need finished before Friday 5th October.

For music we have been recording ourselves playing a song called Everybody Loves Saturday Night. We were playing lots of different  instruments and some people brought in their instruments from home.

Every week we will keep you posted on what we are doing during school hours, have a great weekend, looking forward to Monday .Mrs McAlpine is hoping to see you all at meet the teacher.

## Back to school Message from P6A

Welcome back. Hope you had a good summer holiday!

In literacy this week we did a story on our summer holidays, we also did an acrostic poem about what makes a happy classroom.

In numeracy we played maths games and coloured in emoji and football maths.

In across the curriculum we did music with Miss Bain. In music we wrote down what we liked in music and what instrument we would rather use. We also did P.E with Mrs McAlpine first. We played a few tig games then we played a relaxing sitting down game and we went outside for a bit of a cool down.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend and enjoys the sun.
