In Maths this week we have been working on our number machines, as well as making our own, which we can use to help us create our own questions.
Mrs Walker came and taught us more algebra where she began to show us how to find an unknown value. This really tested our 4 operations: addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.
We have began to look at persuasive writing through note taking persuasive words and phrases. We also began to talk about for and against arguments which we discussed around the issue of the 4-part Christmas.
Additionally, we have been working on our spelling by creating our own snakes and ladders board games. This tested how well we knew our spelling words, as well as, allowing us to be creative.
Other Curriculum Areas-
Drama- This week, we began to learn about props and the different uses they could have in our drama piece, for example: a tea towel became our superhero cape.
German- With Sabrina we have been learning about advent in Germany. This is different to our traditions as each Sunday of December they light a candle, which represents the countdown to Christmas
Social Studies- We have been continuing to practice our capital cities of countries in Europe, in preparation for the Euro Quiz 2020. This has tested our memory skills.
Home Learning Options:
- Practice our spelling by making a board game at home.
- Continue practicing your capital cities of countries in Europe.
P6F have reflected on their on their sleep out last night, by writing our own diary entries. Here are a few wonderful examples:
Thursday 5th December 2019, was the sleep out! I brought my: favourite teddy bear; cozy elf slippers; warm dressing gown; old sleeping bag and mat; pillow and all the things you needed. Everyone was ready for the social bite people to come in. Mr Mceesick gathered us around, moments later Alice Thompson stepped through and then we talked about Social Bite. Then we climbed in to our beds and did the fire drill and got a biscuit, they were lovely. Mr Mceesick read us a story about his childhood and finally, we went to bed.
Last night was a very exciting night, P6 did a wee sleep out. It was held in the new hall. We set up our airbeds and then we had a visitor. Her name was Alice, she started Social Bite in 2012 along with Josh little Jon. They are making 830 homes for people and have already moved a fifth off the streets. After she came we did a quiz on Christmas. We then had a biscuit and heard a story. Finally, it was time to go to sleep…
In the morning we packed all our stuff and then we got collected.
The total we raised was £2700 but it’s still going up!
