Enormous congratulations to P7C who were nominated as a respectful class this week as part of our whole school focus on respect! Particularly well done to Nayana and Arthur who were also highlighted in assembly as being extra respectful!
This week we have been exploring fractions…
For World Book Day we used picture books to inspire our drama…
Well done to Carys and Pradyun who are our class entries into Buckstone’s Got Talent!
As part of Scottish Week and our focus on poetry, the class are learning a poem to perform for the class. The focus is on performance skills rather than learning the whole poem so I have said to the class I’d rather they performed a little bit very well rather than trying to learn all of a Burns poem.
A wee reminder, any Buckstone’s Got Talent entries need to be uploaded to the class Teams for Monday. We will watch and vote for our class entry at some point next week.
We have had a very busy first full week back in school. For lots of us the highlight was starting our World War 2 topic. We thought about what we knew already and then explored some historical artefacts…
Welcome back and Happy New year! I hope everyone had a relaxing and restful holiday!
Yesterday and today we have been learning:
We learnt the order of operations using BODMAS. BODMAS means brackets, orders, division, multiplication, addition and subtraction. If you have a division and a multiplication in the same sum, you go left to right. It’s the same for addition and subtraction.
We learnt a new maths game called PIG (ask us how to play it!). We played maths games like jenga, risky 6 and kaboom.
We done poem writing in literacy. We read some different poems. We thought about what we know already about different types of poems, and had a go at writing our own.
We set up new literature circles books.
We did teamwork and democracy when we voted and debated on our point system and how to spend a class £30.
Thank you so much for the very generous gift, I have loved teaching the class this term and am very much looking forward to the rest of our year together 😀 I hope P7 and their families have a relaxing, safe and festive holiday and I will see you all in the new year!
This week we have been learning:
We had a loose parts session where we were challenged to create a piece of Christmas art:
