P5 – P7
P5, P6 and P7
P5,6 & 7 have had a super-galactic September. We are thoroughly enjoying our Space theme!
So far we have been exploring the planets and the stars. The children were very keen to find out what it would be like to do normal everyday activities in space without gravity. We are beginning to write a report on the planets.
We have taken steps to setting up a garden area, we have planted peas and rocket which we will transfer outside when the garden is ready.
P5, P6 and P7
P5, 6 & 7 have been working hard during November. We have been working on long multiplication and focusing on improving our Mental Maths.
We have finished our William Morris inspired artwork and will now use this to print our own Christmas cards.
We have been busy with Shared Education. We went to Seaview and took part in ICT activities. We researched an explorer from the Victorian era and an explorer from today. Then we compared and contrasted them and presented this in a PowerPoint presentation to the partner schools.
We attended the production of ‘Grease’ at Dunclug Collage. We had a lovely morning out and even got some tips for our own upcoming Christmas concert!
Mrs O’Reilly would like to thank all the children and their parents for their kind and generous donations for Children in Need. All the children and staff had great fun while raising money for such a worthy cause.
P5,6 & 7 have had another busy month. We have been working on addition and subtraction up to the millions involving problem solving. We had great fun during maths week investigating measure. We made bar graphs, combined bar graphs and scatter graphs.
We have been continuing our theme ‘Thinking through the Past’. We have looked at Victorian artist William Morris and are in the middle of designing printed cards based on his style. We have finished our diary entries – all children produced a fantastic piece of writing!
