Please see the presentation below for our thank you message for all the food donations from Lochardil Larder!
Nearly there! We made some lovely Christmas cards with beautiful new pastels.
In writing, we were doing instructions on how to make the said Christmas cards. We looked at instructions from books, and followed instructions on how to make a paper aeroplane. We then had a flying competition.
Have a look where Mia’s landed! She got the prize for highest…and longest in the air!
We’re loving social dancing!
And our class is looking more and more Medievally……
Party on Tuesday. Remember to provide your child with a nice party snack if you can.
So get ready to swing your party pants! Can’t wait!
Hurrah!!!! It’s social dancing! The children’s favourite. Hee hee! To be honest…they pretend they don’t like it, but when you look at them dancing they all have big grins on their faces, and there is much hilarity! In the following pictures, I captured Eliza and William doing a perfect Gay Gordon’s turn. Great job you two!
We have been rehearsing our Christmas song for the BSL Christmas Song Bonanza.
Can the children please bring in something Christmassy to wear on Monday as we will be recording our song on Monday, or Tuesday. Anything at all.
The classroom transformation has begun. Some super collaborations, compromises and problem solving going on. They are in charge…I’m only the facilitator…and the one who says, ” No that’s actually impossible,” if anything gets a bit OTT!
Have super weekend.
Primary 5/4 Weekly Blog
Last week’s blog wasn’t working for me as my google account went bonkers. However, I caught up on Monday so last week’s pictures etc will be there if you look at the p5/4 blog.
We shifted topic from ‘time’ this week, and had a look at ‘angles.’ The children are using a right angle measure that they made themselves, to find right angles in the room.
We were looking at Op Art in class, and made an optical illusion of our own.
You will be delighted to read our battle scenes that we have been working on all this week. The children are trying to tick ALL the writing boxes, for this piece of work that’s going home!
Have a lovely weekend!
I had issues with chrome on Friday, but happily these have been resolved. Photos from the week as promised…
We played a crazy game invented by children called, ‘The Noisy Game.’ (Named by an adult…) Ask your child how to play it. It’s quickfire and funny, and involves frequent trips on ‘The Train of Shame!’
We have been working hard on our imaginative stories. We’re doing them stage by stage, and collaborating with various friends, to get the best use of vocabulary and writing ‘special effects,’ that we can.
The P7 Broom House Captains and friends, gave us a super KAHOOT quiz on Friday which Jack won! Well done Jack!
Finally, we were working on clock times with a very tricky puzzle.
Sorry again for the delay.
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to the Blythswood Shoebox Appeal! Thanks to your kindness and generosity we have collected 61 boxes along with donations of money and gifts. It is really appreciated!
Thank you so much to everyone who donated to Children in Need today! So far we have raised an amazing £533! Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness. We had so much fun and it was really lovely to see our friends in other classes virtually during our school quiz!
We started medieval weaving this week, which is great fun! The children are able to do the weaving whilst listening to our class book – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
We took part in a cool class quiz organised by the p5 class for Children in Need. They did a super job of the quiz. It was just so nice to see everyone again!
We have been finding lots of homophones for our Homophone Wall. The children’s suggestions are sometimes interesting….as are my drawings!
Ala made a display of some of our Hallowe’en Kennings:
And Finally, we have really got stuck into our topic about the Scottish Wars of Independence. William Wallace was apparently 6 foot 7! That’s taller than our Mr Grant. No wonder he needed such a big sword!
A lovely parent of ours made this replica of his sword to actual size a couple of years ago. I’ve never had to use it yet…….
Have a super weekend!
This Friday is the big fundraising show for Children in Need and Primary 5 have been working hard to help everyone take part safely and have lots of fun while raising money for this great cause!
This Friday will be a Dress Down Day. This year’s CiN theme is ‘Wear Yellow’ but any dress down clothing is fine!
The activities, which have been organised by Primary 5, will take place virtually within your child’s classsroom.
We are not charging specified amounts for taking part in either the Dress Down Day, or the activities. Any donations would be greatly appreciated though! Please hand in all donations to school on, or before, Friday the 13th of November. Thank you very much!
From Primary 5 and Miss MacArthur!
Lots of fun in PE this week. We were playing with the parachute and having a tug-o-war. It’s amazing what you can find in the gym cupboard when you really look.
The children have requested that we continue with netball, as they were just getting really good at it. Usually we would be doing social dancing this term, but because of corona we have to do PE outside, and netball is more suited to this. HOWEVER I will somehow slip in a Dashing White Sergeant if it kills me!!!
We were trying out the confusing homophones to, two and too in class and at home.
We were also practising the 5 times table using a game called ‘ladders’. Fast paced and competitive, you’re lucky to come out alive!
Thank you to Mrs Fisher for all the lovely photos. What a beautiful autumnal day!
Please find attached, the Termly Overview for our class.
A huge thank you to all of you who have donated to the Blythswood Showbox Appeal.
Please can we have all donations in by tomorrow. We are very grateful for any donations, whether it is a filled shoebox or items that can be included in a shoebox.
From P5 and Miss MacArthur
Lots of spooky fun this week!
We had flying lessons at the start of the week.
Some children took off like rockets!
We also had close encounters with some scary ghosts for one of our PE session this week. Trying to catch them was exhausting!
The Hallowe’en costumes on Friday were superb. (I don’t actually completely fill the panda suit…Jack took me at a funny angle….honest!)
Eliza kept those lovely teeth in all day!
Finally, we had a visitor from the mysterious Land of Questor. Funnily enough ….I’ve never met him or her (or it) but the children are helping this person on a mission….apparently?
Blythswood Shoebox Appeal
Primary 5 are organising this year’s Blythswood Shoebox Appeal!
The Blythswood Shoebox appeal helps make Christmas a special time to those in need.
You have been given a leaflet, which tells you all about the Blythswood Shoebox appeal, how to make your shoebox and a checklist of things to include.
There are extra leaflets available at the office for anyone who needs.
We would be very grateful for any donations of filled shoeboxes, or any items which could help to fill a shoebox.
Please hand in all items and shoeboxes by Friday the 6th of November.
Thank you very much!
Love from Primary 5!
What a fun week! Full of poems and puppets!
We were listening to lots of poems by different poets. From Benjamin Zephania (Dis Poem), to Michael Rosen (The Car Journey), and from Charles Causley (Timothy Winters) to Margaret Hamilton (Lament to a Lost Dinner Ticket). This last one we copied carefully into our jotters (in pen!!!!) for handwriting practice this week. Here is Eliza’s lovely version. Great job Eliza!
You’ll probably have to get the children to interpret. (and I think it’s a slightly ruder word than BUN!!!)
Next we had fun with Conkers from the horse chestnut tree near my house. Very exciting to open up! I can’t walk past a lovely chestnut on the ground without picking it up…FACT.
In maths we were filling in the other sides of shapes to make symmetry. Quite challenging. We also made symmetrical Hallowe’en shapes.
We had great fun with the puppets. Not sure the world is ready for the premiers yet….but here are some press shots of the performers!
A huge thanks to all for your support in this tricky first term. You have put up with the nonsense! They are a super class and I can’t wait to get going on next term.
Don’t mention Christmas…….!
