Maths: In Maths this week we did some work on equivalent and improper fractions. We also did some work on measurement. We measured how many metres it is around the pitch using trundle wheels and metre sticks.
Literacy and reading: We started a new class novel called ‘The fox girl and the white gazelle’ by Victoria Williamson. You can buy the book for £5. We also did some work on Linlithgow. We read about Linlithgow on a leaflet then wrote about why Linlithgow is different to everywhere else. Then we planned out a day for someone who is taking a day trip to Linlithgow from when they get up until when they go to bed. The leaflets were a bit out of date so we had to write down what stuff isn’t there anymore.
PE: This week the weather has been so nice we have done outdoor PE every day.
Events: On Friday we dressed up as Disney characters. We had Cruella De Ville, The Queen of Hearts, Robin Hood, Moana and many more.
Riddles: A man and a woman go on a honeymoon. The wife kills the man and the police arrest the wife three hours later. Why?
On Fridays we do committees. The committees are JRSO, pupil council, Health and Wellbeing, sports, Rights Respecting, Tech and the fun committee.
The answer to the riddle: The wife only bought a one way ticket for the man.
As a new month starts, our learning continues.
This week we have consolidated our learning around negative numbers and the children have completed a pre-topic assessment for money and finance, which we will begin to explore next week.
In literacy, the children have used Scot’s language to rewrite either part of the script from The Lion King or a scene from The Broons. They had great fun using Scot’s Dictionaries to discover some new words. Ask them which new words they have discovered!!
We have also written an imaginative story, with our main focus being the way sentences are started. We have learned that sometimes we need to restructure the sentence in order to open it with an interesting word. Ask your child which sentence openers they used this week!!
We have continued our preparations for The Lion King show, rehearsing and singing.
Have a lovely weekend
Primary 6B and Mrs Kerr
This week we have looked at the sentence openers we use in our story writing and discovered that we usually use the same words over and over again to start our sentences. We have explored some other words that we could use instead and we are hoping that next week, our sentence openers in our stories will be much more exciting.
In maths we had to use our knowledge of factors, multiples and prime numbers to work out which factor bug had eaten Mrs Kerr’s chocolate!!!
Ask the children who it was and how they worked it out.
As part of our learning for Scot’s week, we have played Scot’s language bingo, recited our Scot’s Poems and explored the lives of The Scottish Colourists.
Primary 6B and Mrs Kerr
A fantastic finale to our week. Well done to Primary 6B and their Assembly – All Different, All Equal.
Our assembly showcased our Health and Wellbeing work so far this session and the children’s talents when singing, dancing, acting and presenting.
Many thanks to everyone who came along and supported the children this morning.
This week has been Maths Week.
Our focus for this has been place value and rounding numbers.
We have been outside in the playground creating and sequencing numbers.
We have also worked in small groups in class to explore rounding and the language associated with this.
