Wish us luck for a fun week! I’ll update as often as I can using our Twitter account, link below.
Grace and Jessica worked really hard on recording their notes for this blog post, and couldn’t wait to type the final draft. Well done girls!
26.09.16 – On Monday Mrs MacGregor came in and we did our spelling test and challenged ourselves to answer PIN number questions. We did a 2 minute to win it challenge about the Industrial Revolution. We met our new teacher called Mr Shields. We also started one of the sections in our JAZZ folder.
27.09.16 – On Tuesday we did our report writing about transport during the Industrial Revolution. Then we did CLIC in Ms Leithead’s and Mrs Thomas’s classroom.
28.09.16 – On Wednesday we read more of The Desperate Journey. In French, we learnt how to say the weather and wrote phrases in French. We had P.E with Miss Brown and did rugby. It was really fun.
On Friday we went to our last ever skiing lesson, it was really really fun!
3.10.16 – On Monday we went to the money museum. We all went on a train which was jam-packed! When we arrived at Waverley station, it was a 10 minute walk to the museum. When we got to the museum we went into groups and then went to an activity spot and learnt about money in the past. Then we all met up and had our snack. We really enjoyed making our own coins! At the last station we looked at the security features on £20 notes and created our own notes. After lunch we did an activity sheet using the information around the museum. Then we got a train back to the school.
4.10.16 – On Wednesday we learned about credit cards and debit cards as part of our money topic. Then we finished our talk on famous Scottish inventors but we are only allowed to use pictures on a PowerPoint and 20 words max on the cue cards.
5.10.16 – On Thursday we answered more money problems in maths. We also read more of The Desperate Journey and we got asked juicy big questions about the story. In the afternoon we had P.E with Miss Brown. It was really fun because some people got to referee.
6.10.16 – It is house morning today! We had an eco assembly and out of junk we are making our own eco mascots!
When we got back to class we thought about other things we could count outside. Twigs, shells, sea glass, flowers, petals, branches and pegs were a few of our ideas. Maybe you could think of a few others while your out and about this weekend.
Amela and Cara had a good giggle while discussing the highlights of the past few weeks. Read more to find out what made them laugh the most!
On Wednesday, we were playing rugby for gym. There were three games on at the same time on the field. We played in teams of five or three. It was fun, hard, breath-taking and our trainers got very grassy.
We used the laptops to research inventors. We did a lot and found some new things about their family, childhood, birthday and the day they died. We are going to use this to make a talk to the class.
On Tuesday Mr Clarkson came to talk about transport to school and we used maps to look at things that stops us from walking or cycling to school.
We did a science experiment using four pennies. We put one in vinegar, lemon juice, water and kept one dry. It turned out really cool, some of them were really shiny. There had been some chemical reactions.
On Friday, Amela had the greatest fall ever at skiing. Another girl tripped, did a front flip and fell on Amela! She was brave and is fine now.
Molly and Marilena have been blogging about their highlights from the past few weeks in Primary 6T –
On Friday, we went skiing and we went down the green slope. We went there on the bus. Skiing was really fun but it wasn’t fun when we fell because it is a dry ski slope and a dry ski slope is spiky!
We started our reading topic and I did a character map on Mr Walker, he is a character from the story Down the Pan. Then we had Music and drama with Mrs Love, and we created a rhythm on the laptops.
Today we learned about Word Wizard in literacy circles and we read On the Money. Mrs Thomas read The desperate Journey to us and we learned more about good vocabulary. Today we also did subtraction with money in maths. In French, we did Lotto (AKA Bingo) and we learnt about the months of the year.
Check back again soon to read more from our class bloggers!
A wee reminder…
Don’t forget we have our P1 Parents’ Meeting on Wednesday evening (7 September). This is a wonderful opportunity to hear all about your child’s learning in Primary One. We will also share ways to support their learning at home. Please come to the main entrance to meet together first in the gym hall at 7pm.
We’d love to see you there!
