P5B Reflective Friday 15.11

Good morning

Well done to P5 for putting on a fantastic Broomlee assembly, I hope everyone enjoyed it. This week has been lots of fun. The children have been working lots in their activity groups writing and performing their scripts. They created the assembly from beginning to end so a big well done.

I have sent home a letter with details about our Sumdog trial in P5. I have also set a challenge on shape and area for everyone to have a go at for homework. Good luck.

Have a great weekend

 

P5B Reflective Friday 8.11

Good morning

Here are our reflections from the week.

Our spelling rule was

  • Suffix ful / less
  • When suffixing with full, one l has to be dropped = ful
  • These suffixes both begin with consonants and therefore the root words do not change.

Our words were

powerful             doubtful

thoughtful          shameful

useless               tasteless

painless              colourless

careful                hopeless

The children have been using SUMDOG this week and have really enjoyed it. I have set a challenge on Place value for everyone to have a go at for homework. Good luck.

P5B Reflective Friday 1.11

Good morning

Here are our reflections from the week.

Our spelling rule was

  • Adding ly
  • This suffix begins with a consonant and therefore the root words do not change unless the root word ends in y, in which case y becomes i

e.g.    rapid +ly               tidy + i + ly

  • If root word ends in l then simply add ly (gradual + ly – gradually – double l)

Our words were

loudly          cheaply

foolishly        rapidly

silently          secretly

bravely          gradually

happily           easily

tidily              quietly

 

 

 

 

 

Help with resources for art

Good morning and I hope everyone had a lovely October break.

Next week we will be creating some spooky art work and need some help with materials.

Could I please ask that if you have any washing up or rubber gloves at home that you could spare that would be fab. Each child will need one. Also any cardboard boxes or spare newspapers.

We will be starting the art work at the beginning of next week.

Thank you

P5B Reflective Friday 4.10

Good morning

Here is some of the learning the children wanted to share.

Our spelling rule was

  • Suffixing er/est to root words.
  • Adding er / est to an adjective ending in y to compare 2 things, change y to i and add er / est (windy = windier)

Our words were

cheekier                  sunniest

stormier                 sleepiest

luckier                    sturdiest

unhappiest             messier

craziest                   angrier

 

 

 

 

P5B Reflective Friday 27.9

Good morning

Here is some of the learning the children wanted to share.

Our spelling rule was

  • Suffixing er/est to root words.
  • Double the final consonant in the root word before adding er / est to keep the preceding vowel short (flat + t + er / est = flatter)
  • Drop the final e before adding er / est (late + er / est = latest)

Our words were

bravest                later

wiser                   ripest

finer                   thinner

flattest               slimmer

fittest                  hotter

 

 

 

 

P5B Reflective Friday 20.9

Hi all

Here is some of the learning the children wanted to share.

Our spelling rule was

  • Suffixing er/est to root words.
  • er and est are both suffixes beginning with a vowel and are thus treated in the same way as ing and ed

Our words were

rounder                       brightest

neater                         hardest

softer                           sharpest

smaller                        deepest

longer                          quickest

P5 Learning Stories

Dear all,

Just a quick plea to ask for any Learning Stories (Blue Folders) from P4 that were not returned at the end of last session to come back please. We are now ready to start sharing our learning for P5 and will be organising our learning from P4 to allow us to share new items in the stories. These are due to come home on Friday 13th September so we would be very grateful if they could be returned before Friday please to allow for them to be updated and sent home on time.

Thank you, The P5 Teachers

P5 Welcome

Welcome back to everyone in Primary 5.  We’ve had a great start to this term, creating a class agreement based on being, Ready, Respectful, and Safe. We are already looking forward to having a great term.

Next week our school website will be under construction so apologies for that.

Have a nice weekend from the P5 team.
