We are going to be making our own rainforest in the classroom as part of our topic. Can you please take a look around your house and if you have any of the following to spare, please send it in next week;

  • big cardboard boxes
  • Plastic bottles
  • cardboard tubes e.g. kitchen rolls
  • straws
  • yoghurt pots
  • bubble wrap
  • netting
  • polystyrene
  • big tubes/poster tubes
  • Cereal boxes

These are some great websites to helo practice measuring angles using a protractor and estimating the size of an angle.

We have also been learning how to estimate answers by rounding to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000. Here are some links to play below

We made some Chinese lanterns to celebrate the Autumn festival.

In our topic we have been researching the layers of the rainforest. Each learning pair researched a layer and took notes then shared what they found with others and they took notes on what was shared! We are going to be making the different layers next week.

We have been taking part in Maths Week Scotland by doing a maths challenge each morning, some of them have been really hard but it has been good fun.

This is a great fun game to help us with our German numbers

We have been taking notes about main events while listening to Greyfriars Bobby and using this to help us illustrate a section of the book.

Here are some people reading their Big Writing pieces to a partner to help them check that it makes sense.

Primary 5 Reading

Primary 5’s first block of reading is a Novel Study on Greyfriars Bobby.

This is looking at a wide range of literacy skills.

Reading books will be handed out in the middle of September.

In class, pupils have the opportunity to read out of the class library on a daily basis and if you would like a book home then they are welcome to choose a book from the library to take home to read,

P5H – 17/8/18

Hi from P5H and Mrs Haynes!

Aren’t we a Happy Holyrood looking class!

I hope everyone had a great holiday and I really enjoyed hearing about what you all got up to during your break.

We played some getting to know you games and found out some very interesting facts about each other.

This week we started self-portraits with some massive sunglasses!

On Thursday we started making our class picture of Holyrood to display our class rules. (Mrs Haynes is really impressed with how hard everyone is working on this).

Today we did a wordsearch of school, it was quite hard.

P.s. here is a bonus silly picture for the first week!
