Primary 7B are continuing to develop their skills in and out of the kitchen but Thursday seen them take on a new challenge, making their own macaroni cheese with only a recipe to follow. Lots of skills were tackled including:

  • Communication
  • Supporting others
  • Delegating tasks
  • Problem solving
  • Identifying risk
  • Teamwork
  • Time management

“We were separated into four teams and had to cooperate with our team mates. We had to make the pasta and the cheese sauce by ourselves using complicated utensils.” – Sophia

“We had to communicate with our team mates otherwise we wouldn’t get anything done. It was important to support each other so that nothing dangerous happened when working with knives, graters and boiling water. Also it meant that everyone had a role in the team to make it cook in time.” – Matthew and Orla

“We learned that ‘teamwork makes the dream work’ and that it’s important to share our knowledge and skills so that people learn and know how to do it the next time by themselves.” – Sean and Mackenzie

It’s clear P7 are enjoying these new learning opportunities and additional responsibility. They are looking forward to the next challenge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

P6 Learning Log – Week Beginning 09.09.19

We have had a very busy week!

In PE, we have been considering what skills an astronaut might need to go into space. Once we decided what they would need to work on, we pretended we work for NASA and, in groups, created fitness games and drills to work on a variety of skills.

Continuing the space theme, we have been learning about the phases of the moon, and are excited to look at the full moon this weekend! On Thursday, we displayed our learning so far about the Earth, sun and moon on book creators, and enjoyed presenting these to everyone.

We have been working really hard in maths this week, learning all about decimals and managing to add and subtract numbers with one decimal point.

We were given our home learning this week, and we now all have a reading book and some activities to do at home, along with spelling, Big Talking and our termly home learning grid. We will also have a weekly Sumdog challenge if we want to practise our maths. More information about home learning can be found here.
