P5 will be holding auditions for anyone in P5 who would like to go through to the Buckstone’s Got Talent competition. The auditions will take place on Wednesday 19 February and following on from this audition two acts from P5 will take part in the whole school audition on Thursday 20 February. The acts can be dancing, singing, telling jokes, reciting poems, magic, juggling or any other skill or talent your child would like to share.
The Winter Fair is on Saturday 22nd. We are looking for donations for the hamper. If you have already donated then please don’t feel you have to donate again! If you would like to then please bring in any donations the first week back. Our theme is International. Any donations would be greatly appreciated!
Primary 5 picked the Edinburgh cat and dog home as our charity for this year. We are looking for any donations of food, dry or wet, treats, toys, food or water bowls, used leads for dogs and poop bags.
Please could you send any donations in by next Wednesday and P5 will collect them. A member of staff from the home will be working with P5 next Thursday and will take them away then.
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
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.
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.
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.
