P5HW learning this week 26.10.18

Today’s reflective week was written together .

Morning Challenges

Our challenges this week have included:

Using coordinates to make pictures of pumpkins, bats and cobwebs.

Using our thinking and reasoning skills to consider whether we would rather live in a hot or cold place.

Maths 

We have been learning how to read and use coordinates.  We practised these skills by following coordinates to make a picture, completing a dot-to-dot and by playing Battleships, which was fun!

In mental maths we have been developing our skills using empty number lines to help with addition.

Literacy 

In writing this week, we have been learning about the features of a letter and developed our skills by writing letters to the staff at Broomlee, thanking them for making our experiences so memorable and fun.

In Literacy Circles we changed groups and started new books.

Languages

In Mandarin we made a booklet about Chinese numbers.  It was lots of fun!  We also wrote a story in our Chinese number book.

Topic – The Rainforest

We have been continuing with our fact files about animals in tropical rainforests.  We drew some of the animals we have researched and used lots of different materials and coloured paper.  Next week we are going to paint them.

Health and Wellbeing

In P.E. we have been developing our rugby skills.  We have been practising throwing and catching and passing along a line.

Have a lovely weekend!
