P5W Reflective Friday 8.11.19

Literacy:

This week we have continued reading and discussing our group novels. We have focused on comprehension activities and completed reading challenge cards. In spelling, we have learned about the ‘tion’ spelling and looked for other words that follow this spelling rule.

Home learning activity: All students have reading homework to complete for next week that can be recorded on their reading logs.

Maths and numeracy:

We have begun learning how to figure out the perimeter of simple shapes like rectangles. We also looked at using strategies like bridging, partitioning and columns to solve subtraction problems that involve trading. We completed a maths mystery and have also begun an Edinburgh-wide SumDog challenge.

Home learning activity: We have taken our SumDog logins home and can continue to earn points for Buckstone Primary until November 14th.

Other areas of the curriculum: This week we have continued to learn about mime in drama and dance during Weekly Wake Up. We are focusing on fitness in P.E. and have completed a multi-stage fitness test. We also began writing our scripts for our Broomlee assembly next week – we hope to see lots of parents come along at 9am next Friday!
