In maths this week we started off with a time assessment looking at the work we have covered over the last two weeks: revising o’clock , half past and learning quarter to and quarter past using both analogue and digital times. We will be revisiting time next year. We also did some work on the months of the year, making sure we know the order they come in and which months are in which seasons.
We were lucky enough to have a visit from a paramedic and a medical technician on Wednesday. The children had thought of questions to ask them about their work and we all had a look inside their ambulance. We had a very good discussion about what skills you would need to be a paramedic and the children wrote about the experience afterwards.
In reading we were thinking about characterisation and describing a character. We also did written comprehension. Please chat to your child about the characters in their reading book- What kind of person are they? Would you want to be their friend – why/why not? Saffron group have a non fiction book this week so they could choose a book from home to discuss characterisation. Next week is Book Week Scotland so we will be participating in lots of fun reading activities.
The three groups had dictation today to practise the words they have been working on over the last two weeks. Further information regarding spelling to follow.
Following on from last week’s assembly we had a circle time all about worries and what strategies we can use to help us cope with them. Lovely to see all the worry monsters the children have made at home. Some children have used Lego in school to create monsters too.
We began our new topic on food chains and the children drew their own food chains.
We really enjoyed being the first class to see the P5 Assembly and we were a quality audiencefor them.
In art the children used scrapers to make firework shapes on their paintings.
We had a great time taking part in all the Children in Need activities. A big thank you to P7 and their teachers.
Have a great weekend.
