We love our new theme ‘Whatever the Weather’. We have been exploring the seasons, the months of the year, maps and we will be writing our own weather forecasts which we will record. Watch out Angie and Barra! We have been learning how to write instructions and we will use these to make our own weather instruments.
In Numeracy we have loved making hundred square jigsaw puzzles and are working on place value. We have linked our Maths with our topic and our learning all about time; seasons, months, telling time in digital and analogue. This will help us with our topic work as well as presenting our own weather forecast.
If you could save a 2 litre bottle boys and girls which we need for making our own anemometers.

Wow! What a busy half term! We have enjoyed two shared education days during which we played on some brilliant PE equipment, helped Invisible Sam to see his talents and abilities and learnt about leaves and seeds from the forest.
We used all our knowledge and information from Activity Based Learning to write a report about houses and homes. We have also been learning about proper nouns and have managed to beat our alphabet game time. We achieved a loop in 1.00 minute exactly!
We have loved our Maths Week challenges and games so much that our new favourite is three in a row. It helps us with our mental maths and allows helps us to use our strategies. We were ever so glad that we solved our entire Maths Halloween trail correctly and got a treat instead of a trick. Poor Miss Mulholland didn’t listen to the question properly so unfortunately she got a trick!!
In mathematics we have been learning to measure accurately using non-standard units and had great fun with our investigation of Giants and Fairies.

P3 and 4 have been working on report writing in Literacy. We have been working on mind maps and taking part in group activities to record facts.
We have had great fun with our homemade alphabet game which we play against the timer.
We are trying hard to bet the super fast time of 1 minute 35 seconds! We are learning about our address as part of our theme ‘My Place and Yours’ so look out for something arriving in the post before Halloween.
Our Activity Based Learning work has included planning our dream bedrooms which we are going to create, setting up an estate agents and taking part in construction activities! In Maths we have been learning to measure using standard and non-standard units.
Do you know how many cubes long our desks are?

Would you let a pigeon drive a bus? We have been working on persuasive writing this half term and some of us were convinced to let a pigeon drive a bus! We have been learning about opinions and how to explain them in order to persuade someone. We received a very curious email from Peppermint McGingles (Chief Elf) who stated that due to the high volume of children on the nice list that Santa may need some small people to provide extra help this year. We have completed an application and are waiting for a response. You may see some of these elves in the classroom!
During Activity Based Learning we have been working on creating a toy museum as part of our new theme ‘Toy Story’. We have also created a questionnaire to ask parents and grandparents about toys from the past.
We have been working very hard on addition and subtraction in Numeracy and are focusing on using mental maths strategies to help us.
P3 and 4 have been working on report writing in Literacy. We have been reading and sorting reports, learning about the features of reports and taking part in group activities to record facts.
We had fantastic fun completing our Maths Week challenge. We thought of lots of ways to prove who was the tallest in our class. Some methods were more accurate and successful than others. Our topic work has included work on joints and bones and we completed a science investigation to discover why our biceps bulge!
We enjoyed our first Shared Education days with our partner schools. We developed our ICT skills and loved meeting up with our friends from other schools.
