For Scottish Book Week we made up our own characters and then wrote about them using similes. For example I drew The Emperor Diamond and my similes were “as tall as a giraffe” and “as fast as a cheetah”. We really liked being creative and getting to sit with our friends while we did it .
We were also naming parts of a medieval knight’s armour and it was really fun. We know what a knight’s armour was like now. We enjoyed labelling a picture of all the different parts of the armour.
Also, we read to the P3s, and I read Nessie to a nice boy. It was really fun seeing the P3s and we loved getting to read to our partners.
In maths we made our own graphs .We gathered all the information about how we travelled to school. It was so much fun – we love making our own graphs and find data handling good fun.
We joined in an online Author’s Live session with Joseph Coelho, where we drew a spider graph about “if the world were…”. So if the world were sweets, people would be gummy. It was very interesting and fun.
We got to make a Book Creator e-book about the death of Alexander III, and we added lots of extra information and detail. We enjoyed getting to work with people from the other P5 class.
