P4G Reflective Friday 18/05/18

What we have been learning in P4G this week.

Literacy:

We had a Big Writing assessment this week.  We had to think about using correct punctuation, interesting descriptions, using our senses, writing in paragraphs and trying to use similes.

In reading we met our new Reading Detective groups and got our new books to read.  The skill we worked on this week was summarising.  We also made predictions about what might happen in our new books.

Our spelling were plurals where we need to add ‘es’.  See link below.

week 22 es endings

Here is a link to Spelling City where there are games you can play using this rule.  All pupils have their own log-in.

Numeracy/Maths:

We solved a mystery by working out clues using our number skills, including big division sums- it was a challenge!  The mystery was about who unwrapped the Royal Wedding presents.

We have also worked on our word problem-solving using multiplication and division skills.

In our morning challenges this week we have found as many ways to make 24 and 40 as we could.

We are contiuning to improve on our beat-thats.

Other Areas:

We drew and labelled our own Viking.

Primary Two organised the biscuit sale and dress down day  in aid of Together in Sport.

We really enjoyed Sports Day.

We had our last ukulele lesson and learnt the song Shake it Off by Taylor Swift.

Katherine, “I enjoyed sports day.”

Alexandra, “On sports day I liked everything!”

William, “On sports day I loved the sprint race.”

Sarah, “I loved the P2 biscuits!”

Ingrid, “I enjoyed drawing and labelling our Vikings.”
