Burns Poems

Our Burns Day preparations started early in Primary 5. All of the children have chosen a poem to learn and recite. We have been spending some time in class learning these poem and this has also been our main homework focus in the first few weeks back. Children will be asked to recite these in class this week and we look forward to hearing them.

Happy New Year!

We are back and raring to go!

Our main focus as we start the term is learning our Burns poems for Scots Week. The children have chosen from a selection of three:- Up In The Morning Early, Green Grow The Rashes O’ and Ye Banks and Braes. The children will be performing these in front of the class on Wednesday 17th – Friday 20th January and we will choose three winners to go through to the semi final on Tuesday the 24th. One winner from our class will then be chosen to go through to the grand final on Friday 27th of January.

We had great fun playing bingo this morning to help us learn our tables. Here is the link> Click …

We will be starting to learn the 9 times table next week. Please keep practising the 3 and 4 times table at home!

Thank you,

Happy New Year to you all!

Everyone seems to be happy to be back this week. I’m happy the snow is staying away so far.

We’ve started the term by looking at some Julia Donaldson books in Scots. We listened to The Gruffalo in Scots on YouTube:Find it here

In Maths we’re adding within 100 and then 1000 and found this nice activity on the Top Marks website which has lots of options: Click here to have a look

Scottish poems will be sent home for homework on Monday 16th January so keep an eye out in bags.
