Counting in Autumn

 

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.

Life in P6T

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.

 

Life in P6T

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!
