Busy week in P4/5

Lots on this week!

We were looking at the amazing 9 times table, and discovering some of the very cool patterns that you can find.

As you can see, the children got so into it, that I was having difficulty stopping them!

Our fabulous primary 5 children were performing alongside the Scottish Opera people. They did us all proud. We don’t have pictures, but hopefully you managed to get along to see it.

We also had our Unicef simulation event.

I have attached the letter that Unicef issue after the simulation. Being the ‘Best Class in the School’ really helped! They were very sharing and supportive. They went through a whole range of emotions, and came out the other side much more aware of what it feels like to be in an emergency situation. Lots of super discussions.

Parent info letter Unicef Simulation Day (updated)

We also did a bit of technology. The children had to design and build a bridge that would hold 1kg. There was also a prize for the prettiest bridge which Kyla won.

Have a lovely holiday, and see you back at school on Wednesday.

 

 

TESCO Tokens – Lochardil comes first!

We are delighted to share that Lochardil has received the most number of tokens in the recent round of  the TESCO Community Awards Bags for Life Scheme. Our Wise About Waste application should now be more achievable and we look forward to using the money (£4,000) effectively.

A big thank you to everyone who supported us.

We studied the ‘Legs Proform’ and ‘Person Proform’…. (a proform is a commonly used sign that represents a lot of things, but you have to think about how you are using it……..ask the kids!)

We will be looking at regional variations, and how to express intensity of feeling next week. All very interesting, and no alphabet to be found….yet!

In other news…We played a game where you had to find your partner by asking questions that could only be answered with a yes or a no. Very tricky!

What a lot of fun was had by all.

Can I just say, a huge thanks to all of you. We have had a ball in the first half of the year, with a brilliant bunch of children who are supported from home in so many ways. This makes my job much easier!

So here’s to an exciting and very Happy New Year!

p4/5 blog

Well we did it! Oh yes we did!

Thank you so much for all your kind words. The children were fabulous and amazing. They did so well. 

I got some photos of everyone getting ready, and Robert took some of the open afternoon, which, again, thank you for coming to. We have such a fantastically supportive parent base, it’s no wonder the children are so good!

Thank you once again and here’s to a very productive last few days! 

If anyone can join us at the CCC on Thursday, walking over and back with the class, it would be much appreciated. I think we leave 9:30ish. Just pop a wee note in with your child to let me know if you’re available.

Thanks!

Christmas Dinner and Christmas Jumpers!!

Just a quick reminder, the children will be receiving their Christmas dinners in the dining hall for lunch tomorrow if they have ordered them and all children and staff are encouraged to wear their finest Christmas jumpers if they so wish!  Please do not go out to buy a jumper especially for the occasion, it is the company and the wonderful atmosphere that we are all looking forward to tomorrow!

Many thanks, The Lochardil Team

We made a paper chain tree for the door of our class.

Just a wee extra post to show the lovely 3D cubes we made today. 

The keys to success were, stay focused, listen carefully to instructions and let each bit dry before you try to move it….as a few of us found out to our cost!

P4/5 post 22/11/18

Preparations are well underway for our very exciting pantomime! The scenery group have been using their own designs and I have been drawing them much larger on the scenery boards, then we paint them and glue them. The costume group have been accumulating and designing costumes, and the hair and makeup group have been working hard on their creations too. It’s all coming together.

We had our first run through today………eeeeek!

It’ll be alright on the night….

Tables wise, we have been working on the ‘4 times,’ so I’ve given most children the 4 times tables race for homework. Thanks to everyone who managed to do the assessment from last week. The words for spelling are all maths topic related. Tricky!

I also introduced the division triangle. This will hopefully let the children see the connection between the tables and division. They were trying examples out on each other.

Sophie and Lillie’s picture/diagram shows you what I mean.

P4/5 weekly blog

Hi …………Before I forget!

This week’s maths homework will be on SUMDOG

As with a lot of these technical things…the kids know how to use it better than I do!

However, I have managed to put an assessment on, (I think) and they have had a practice at how to access it in class. 

Sumdog should work on anything with internet connection even phones. If there is an issue with access, please let me know and I’ll let your child do it on the ipads at school.

Your child should have either brought home their username and password, or memorised it, as they are fairly simple.

We have been continuing to hammer away at time! Digital, am/pm, minutes to and past and even in some cases, 24 hour. Phew!

We also went to the cinema this week. The film was interesting as no one had seen it before. The Giant Pear was a real adventure, as you can see from our very much posed photographs!

Just as a little extra insight into the workings of our class……

We use comprehension cards to improve our understanding of what we are reading. They have a short passage, and then the children have to answer multiple choice questions. The children seem to enjoy doing them.
