Gardening Tools Wanted!

If you have any unwanted trowels or forks tucked away in your garage or shed, we would love to give them a new home to help us look after our playground.

If you are able to help, there will be a box in the reception area next week for you to drop off any tools.

We are also looking for children’s gardening gloves. If you have any that your child has finished with or has grown out of, we would be delighted to have them.

Many thanks

P5B Reflective Friday 17.1

Good afternoon

Here are our reflections from the week.

Our spelling rule was

  • When a word ends with an f sound, change the f to v before adding es
  • We also looked at what the meaning of singular and plural in relation to the words.

e.g.    loaf  =  loav + es = loaves

knife                     knives

scarf                     scarves

loaf                       loaves

leaf                       leaves

calf                       calves

half                       halves

herself                  themselves

myself                  ourselves

Maths

I have set two challenges on Sumdog, both are covering the work we have started in money. You can choose which one you would like to do, or you can do both. The decimal points challenge is more difficult.

Have a lovely weekend

P5 Scots Poetry

Good afternoon

As part of our focus on Scotland in January, P5 are looking at the works of Robert Burns. For our reading homework this week we would like the children to learn a poem. We have shown the children four examples of his poetry. These are

A mans a man

My love is like a red red rose

My hearts in the highlands

To a mouse

The children can choose one of these to learn, or any other Scots poem they may know. Next week from Tuesday we will ask the children to recite their poem to the class. We have spoken about all the important parts of talking and listening which will help in their recital.

I have attached the link to the BBC burns site which has the words and some celebrities reciting the four poems.

Good luck to everyone, we cant wait to hear them.

Good morning

Here are our reflections from the week.

Our spelling rule was

      • ous says us in the final syllable
      • We have focused again on the breaking up of words into syllables as a spelling strategy

Our words were

nervous               jealous

poisonous          enormous

tremendous       famous

dangerous         numerous

generous           miraculous

Squishy squad! 

Eat sleep squish repeat 

 On the 10th of December we are selling de-stress balls in the top area. All the de-stress balls are 50p or a pound so no need to bring in a five pound note. There will be a DIY stall for people to draw their own faces on the squishies. There are the colours pink, gold, blue, yellow, purple, green and orange to choose from. Our squishies are made by filling a balloon with flour or rice. We also recommend not to squish them too hard otherwise they may burst, however, none of ours have burst yet. All the money will be going to our class charity and a P7 trip.
