P5B’s Weekly Blog

We have been working very hard this week on lots of different things but our letters to India really stand out as we have tried very hard to raise our writing standards. We’ve also been learning about 3D shapes. We’ve been thinking hard about what ‘Respect’ looks like, sounds like and feels like in the playground too. We’ve been building our ‘Learning Power’ by discussing resilience, making Learning Pits to help us when we’re stuck and class circle time on friendship. Our aim is for everyone to feel happy and positive about their time in class, in the playground and making better learners who are ready for a new challenge!

P5B Blog Post!

Everyone in Primary 5 is very excited about Harvest time. We are working hard to get the Harvest assembly ready to present to our school and for the Cluster assembly. Primary 5 values, positive atmosphere and Health and well-being have been very important to us. We have been working hard on our school values and created a ‘Garden of Goodness’ , we have ‘Carlo, Patricia and Theo’ our pet plants, a Recognition Tree, a How Hero and Maestro di Gentilezza’, feelings Checkin (leaves) and more!

I wrote much more than I expected to, on my letter to India. Owen P5B

I enjoyed exploring pattern and colour in my Indian art and created an elephant design. Amber P5B

It was fun creating a bird full of colour and expressing who I am by adding on ‘all about me facts’. Reese P5B

I enjoyed learning about 3D shape and finding ways to describe them by feeling the shapes and using ‘faces, vertices and edges’words. Jamie P5B

I liked being responsible for helping my classroom community by making posters and signs. Carlie P5B

P5A & P5B are excited about the year ahead!

Primary 5 are so excited about starting off a brand new year in P5! We have started off this term with activities centred around friendship and wellbeing. We are taking care to show empathy and are making links with our school values of Respect, Responsibility & Kindness. We love these values! We will be developing strategies in growthmindset and resilience. WE are also learning about place value in Numeracy and will be learning all about 2 and 3D shape. This week we have been finding out about Climate Change and have had such interesting and thoughtful discussions. We are developing our skills in compassion and citizenship by making links to ‘Global Goals’. We are already planning exciting events such as the school’s Harvest celebration. We can’t wait to find out about how Miss Brown’s trip to India goes and have made some lovely pieces of art for her to take over and show the school in Mumbai. Watch this space….. Primary 5 are building their Learning Power!
