P5/6 Week 1 of Term 3

We have had a great first week back. Behaviour , effort and listening have been fantastic this week! 

We have introduced a secret student jar. At the end of each day a name is picked from the jar. If that person has been responsible, respectful and hard working, all day, they get a small sweet or prize. 

This week we have been very busy! In maths we have been learning about fractions, decimals and percentages. It’s tricky but we are all getting the hang of it . We also completed our Key Assessment Task that will be issued with our Numeracy learning pathway. Mrs MacDonald was  VERY impressed at everyone’s effort, perseverance and concentration during the challenge. Everyone did great and should be super proud ! It was very challenging and we had to take our time because we had to read the scenario very carefully and pick our key information in order to answer the questions. 

In literacy we have been up levelling our sentences using Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation (VCOP). We have also been taking some time to practice our joined hand writing. 

Primary 6 were intriguing by their first session of Bible Alive .

Our new topic is China.  We have created our topic cover pages and learned some interesting facts . We also found out about China’s one child policy and how it recently changed. We identified lots of links to our rights and global goals during this learning including : Goal 5 Gender Equality and Goal 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities. 

At the start of the week, we set personal and class “word goals” for this term, linking with our right to be supported to live and grow and Global Goal 3 Good Health and Well-being . 

On Wednesday, next week we are excited to be getting tennis lessons , so we need to remember to bring our PE kit on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. 

As you can see we have had an action packed, busy week so I hope that you all have a fabulous chilled out weekend.
