P5 Learning Log – Week Beginning 04.03.19

This has been a very busy snapshot jotter week!

In maths we were learning about budgeting and how to compare prices. It was hard and fun at the same time. We have learnt how to plan and shop on a budget.

On Tuesday it was Pancake Tuesday so we made pancakes in our classrooms. It was hard because it was some people’s first time making pancakes but they were delicious. On the same day, we wrote a recipe for how to make pancakes.

It was also Fairtrade fortnight, so we watching videos and then answered questions, pretending we were Fairtrade farmers.

On Wednesday we went to mass at St Mary Magdalene’s because it was Ash Wednesday. The priest put ash on our foreheads in the sign of the cross.

It was World Book Day on Thursday. We all came to school in our pyjamas (even the teachers!) and brought in our favourite books. We made a book creator in pairs to compare our favourite books and then had a drama lesson at the end of the day to act out a scene of dialogue.

This week have learnt about food in French, and how to spell them in French. We also did a quiz to check our learning using Plicker cards (we all have our own QR code that we hold up to answer questions. Ms Mitchell and Miss Sinclair can scan the room with a device, and it tells us instantly who got things correct or incorrect).

Also, we learnt about dialogue, and how to use speech marks in our stories. We wrote an imaginative ending to a story that had a lot of dialogue in the middle.

We did some science experiments with mirrors and water to find out more about reflection and refraction of light, and played a game using Plicker cards.

In PE we were playing a game with playing cards and decided exercises for all the types of cards, we ran to the deck of cards and did the exercises on that card.

On Monday we did some American football  You should check out the pictures below – there are a lot of photos of our amazing catches. Our coach was Tom from Active Schools, he came to the school to teach us some moves.

On Tuesday we learned about how our eyes see light. An ancient Greek said we had a light in our heads but scientists said that that would make our heads shine like car headlights, so they discovered that light actually reflects off objects and goes into our eyes.

On Wednesday we had PE in the morning and then we did some imaginative writing about finding something. We made criteria for it and set out a plan and an opening paragraph.

On Thursday we had a calm morning writing our stories and think we did a great job. In the afternoon we had PE. We played a card game where we did different exercises depending on what card we picked, and if we got a joker it was 30 seconds of plank!

P5 Learning Log – Week Beginning 04.02.19

This week we had a workshop from Tree of Knowledge, where we learnt about the different sides of us; Mr Right Now and Mr Wait a Minute. Mr Right Now is when you don’t think about things and do them really quickly, and Mr Wait a Minute is thinking and waiting. We enjoyed the games like building the biggest Jenga tower, and we liked winning prizes.

We learnt about Chinese New Year, and enjoyed learning about how it is celebrated.

We peer assessed the Scottish Myth stories that we wrote last week. We liked doing this because we liked reading other people’s myths.

We did a quiz in pairs for Safer Internet day and made posters to tell others how to stay safe online. We liked working in partners with people from the other class.

We were lucky this week to have a basketball taster session organised by Active Schools. We did a few warm up games then got into teams and played against each other. It was really fun, and some of us were keen to join a basketball club after it!
