We enjoyed our visit to the Lanthorn Centre for the P4 cluster Fair Trade service with Darren from the Chaplaincy Team. All the schools presented what they had been learning about Fair Trade and also sang their chosen song. We presented our findings from our research on Fair Trade products and the countries they came from. Thanks to Darren and the parent helpers that supported us. We are looking forward to Fairtrade Fortnight next week.
We also took part in a Reflective Spaces workshop on the value of the month “Fairness”. Here we thought about places around the world where things were not fair, for whatever reason, and wrote our ideas for a fairer world. We also thought about what fairness means to us.
In maths, we have been focusing on linking multiplication and division and making array patterns and number lines to help us with this. Also, we have started a topic on time and we have been measuring how long a minute is and trying to complete different activities within one minute. We began revising telling the time with o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to the hour.
In language, we learnt some Gaelic words and sang Scottish songs with Mrs Logan. In French, we have learnt about pets and food and how to ask if we like something or not. We now have a lovely new French display about pets and food. In writing, we wrote thank you letters to Darren and the Handball helpers and we finished our internet safety posters.
The fish are growing well and will be released in about 10 days – more details to follow. In our Scotland topic, we located places in Scotland on a map by using atlases and Google maps/earth. In Art, we finished our wave pictures and we learned about cold/warm colours and mixing colours. In P.E., we continued with yoga and also Futsal.
We look forward to an exciting Fairtrade week, next week!
