Reflective Friday

By Anna & Finlay

Literacy

Comprehension

This week for comprehension, we did Robert Burns. We had to read the sheet, highlight the important parts, take notes making sure there in our own words and create a colourful, eye catching and informational poster. I learned all about Robert Burns.

Descriptive writing

This week for descriptive writing we had to describe a scene, from a picture of our favourite place. First we had to sketch our favourite place, then write a descriptive paragraph using powerful vocabulary and finally circle all of your openers. I learned all about how to use good openers to grab the reader’s attention.

Maths

Algorithm Method

This week for the algorithm method we did it for the 6, 7 and 8 times table. I learned all about the times tables and did a lot of practice on them.

Distances

This week we have been learning about distances between places in Scotland. For this we had to work with our learning partners, use google maps to find out how far away places are from Edinburgh and convert them into kilometres.

Mandarin

1-20                                                            

This week we have been practicing counting beyond ten.

Months/Days

This week we have been doing months of the year and the dates within. If you have a number you add yeu and it becomes a month depending on what number that month is. January is one. E.g. ba + yue = August. San + ri = August 3rd.

Art

Robert Burns House

This week we had to paint Robert Burns house using water colours. For this we had to sketch a 3D house, mix the right colours to paint the house and try to add shading to the house with lighter coloured paints.

What we enjoyed

This week I enjoyed doing art because I learned about drawing things in the distance.

I also enjoyed doing descriptive writing on our favourite place.
