P5 Learning Log – Week Beginning 29.04.19

This week was world of work week. We had some talks from a Chemist and a Research Scientist, and a workshop with Lloyd’s bank. We also had a workshop about mindfulness which we will have every week for the next 8 weeks.

In maths we have been doing fractions to get better knowledge of quarters and halves. We were converting between mixed number and improper fractions.

We also continued our new topic about endangered animals, we were very excited to do some research about our leopard and giant panda.

We played lots of volleyball this week, it was very tiring and fun!

P5 Learning Log – Week Beginning 23.04.19

This week, we started a new topic about endangered animals. For our first lesson we learnt about some extinct animals.

On our first day back, we did an Easter holiday check-in and learnt what other people did during their Easter break.

In maths we have been learning about fractions, and learning how to find equivalent fractions.

We wrote our targets for this term, and self-evaluated last term’s work.

We also counted to 100 in French.

P5’s Animal Adoption

P5 are currently learning about endangered animals; why they are endangered and what can be done to conserve them.

As part of our focus on animals, P5 were very keen to adopt an animal through the WWF to enhance their learning and make a difference to the world in which they live. P5a have chosen to adopt a Giant Panda, and P5b selected an Amur Leopard.

Massive thank you to all the children who have contributed towards these adoptions!

P5 Learning Log – Week Beginning 01.04.19

We have had a great last week of term! We have been learning about the events of Holy Week, and drew our own versions of Leonardi Da Vinci’s Last Supper painting. We sequenced the stations of the cross and learnt about the significance of Good Friday, and then made comic strips to show the Easter story.

In PE we did some more free play, using equipment to create our own games. We collaborated with each other very well, and worked hard on our communication skills. We also did a fun run around Figgate Park, with each learner donating an Easter egg for the food bank as entry to the fun run. Well done for your generous donations!

We finished off our maths topics, with Miss Sinclair’s group looking at following compass directions this week, and Ms Mitchell’s group doing their division topic assessment (well done team!).

We got the chance this week to present our ‘Welcome to P5’ Book Creator e-books, animations and posters this week. Everyone presented clearly and confidently, and we were so impressed by the quality of your work.

Well done to everyone in P5 for being such hard-working, engaged and kind learners this term. We hope you enjoy your Easter holidays!

P5 Learning Log – Week Beginning 25.03.19

This week we were making up games on the Astroturf with some common PE equipment. Some people used footballs to make up games involving shooting and running around the goals. We enjoyed it so much we did it again on Thursday in the playground.

We have been following the 40 acts of kindness for Lent, where we have something to do to show kindness or gratitude each day. This week we made an intoduction pack for P5, in case any visitors want to know more, or in case maybe someone new joins our year. Some people made Book Creators and some chose to make posters.

We have been doing Mothers’ Day activities, completing a mystery grammar challenge. It was a very good lesson as everyone enjoyed it.

This Saturday it is Earth Hour. Earth Hour is an hour of turning off all electric items to try to save the planet. We made leaves to show what we are pledging to do to try to help the environment, which will be made into a whole school display. We hope that everyone joins in with Earth Hour at 8.30pm on Saturday!
