Transition day and meet the teacher – 23/6

Good morning everyone and a big hello from me Mr Bothamley.

I am really excited to be teaching you in Primary 5 and have heard such lovely things from Mrs Jones about you all. It is very strange that we don’t all get to meet each other in our new classroom but hopefully you will enjoy reading my profile and I cant wait to read all about you. Click on the powerpoint below to find out more about me.

Mr Bothamley

Both of the P5 classes for next year are going to be doing the same transition activities, I have attached all of these below. This is your work for today, we hope you enjoy it. Remember to keep everything that you do so we can decorate the classroom with it in August.

Our new classroom is in the photograph below, we are going to be where the P3 classes were last year. It will probably look quite different when we go back depending on how many desks we can have in the room. I just thought it would be nice for you to see where we are.

I hope you enjoy the activities and that you have a lovely summer holiday and I will look forward to seeing you in August.

PE Run, Jump and Throw

In the Summer term we usually develop athletics skills . Here are videos of the elements of Running, Jumping and Throwing which you can work through this week. Running has been split into 2 sections.They may have been referred to on your class grid.

You can be creative with the ideas outside and inside. Remember to make sure an adult knows what your are doing, that the area and surface is safe and that you are wearing suitable footwear.

Have fun!

Monday 22nd June – Learning Together at Home

Good morning P4J! 🙂 I hope that you had a lovely weekend!

This week, our learning will be a little bit different. Instead of a daily blog post, I have created a grid of activities for you to complete over the week. Please choose the activities that you would like to do (you do not need to complete them all) and have fun!

Grid of activities: P4 GRID 22.6.20

Important information for this week:

TuesdayTransition Day/ Meet the Teacher There will be a blog post from your new Primary 5 teacher and activities will be set for you on this day.

Thursday – Thursday Fun!  P4J ‘virtual’ chat and quiz on Teams at 2pm!! Please be on Teams at 2pm for the opportunity to chat to one another on a Teams meeting. You will be able to see and hear me (Mrs Jones) but you will only hear each other. There will be an end of Primary 4 quiz so please come prepared with a pencil and paper to write down your answers! There will also be an opportunity to share news with one another so have a think about this too (this could be something that you have really enjoying doing at home, something that you are really looking forward to when we are back together in August or a piece of news you would like to share with your classmates). I am really looking forward to chatting with you all 🙂

Friday: Unfortunately I won’t be available to chat on Teams on Friday but keep an eye on Teams for a end of term message from me :). Enjoy trying some of the activities on this week’s grid.

Have a lovely Monday 🙂

P4J RME – Thursday 18 June

Good afternoon, P4J. I hope you all had a great time in Disney World yesterday!

We have been learning a bit about mosques, a place where Muslims go to worship. We have looked at the features of mosques as well as some of the traditions and rituals followed inside them.

This week, I’d like you to compare what you now know about mosques and the Muslim religion, with the places of worship and rituals followed in other religions. What similarities are there and what differences do you notice?

To help you with this, watch the clips below. You don’t need to watch all of these today; I would suggest you spread this activity over a few days:

Christianity

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z8sfcdm

Judaism

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z4mxfg8

Sikhism

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zk6tvcw

Draw a table to help you make comparisons. You might want to add some illustrations to add interest to your work. Use what you have learnt about Islam and mosques as the basis for your comparisons.

Here are the clips about a mosque again, if you need a reminder:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z74wmp3

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0113n8h

Here is an example of the type of information you might put in your table:

Write down what you notice after comparing the places of worship.

ICT (Optional)

You may draw your table, or, if you are looking for an ICT challenge, create a table using Word, like I have done. You will need to go to ‘insert’ and select ‘table’. Have a ‘tinker’ with this function and see what you can come up with.

If you have never done this before, this video may be helpful:

I hope you all have a lovely day!
