Hello boys and girls! I hope you are all having a lovely holiday?
Yes, I know, I still need to write the posts about the end of term… I will get there!
But I found out just now that Deadly 60s Steve Backshall is going to appear in the Edinburgh Fringe festival If you want to go and see him he is on at the Pleasance Courtyard on 15th and 16th August -a great way to finish off your holidays!! The phone number is 0131 556 6550.
Today we have started learning about SOUND. We have reviewed what we learned in our Music In Action workshop: Sound is caused by vibrations, it travels in waves, and moves through gases, liquids and solids differently.
For today’s ICT suite activity, please use these two websites:
http://kidshealth.org/kid/htbw/ears.html and http://www.childrensuniversity.manchester.ac.uk/interactives/science/brainandsenses/ear.asp
Use the websites to help you list the steps in how we hear sounds and to label the diagram of the ear. Happy reading!
Our new topic in numeracy is ANGLES! Today we met al the members of the Angle family: Mr Obtuse, Mrs Right Angle, Baby Acute and Reflex the Dog! We then headed into the playground with our lovely new set squares to hunt for right angles:
Last week P5c pupils were working up a serious sweat as they gave their all in a circuit class!
Just a quick note in case you are reading this P5c -We have PE tomorrow so please remember your kit!
Today we trialled the first drafts of our wonderful stories by reading them to our friends in P2. Just like last time, we split up between our two classrooms and everyone found somewhere to sit together and enjoy a story! It was so exciting to share our stories with P2 and they all seemed to enjoy listening to them very much. They gave us some useful information about how we could improve the stories and what we might make our characters look like in the final book. Thank you P2s!
Wow! What a busy day! P5c Publishing was a buzz of great ideas today and we are very proud of the wonderful stories that we have written!
Some P2 pupils came to visit us this afternoon and we were able to read them little sneak previews of our storybooks so far, and tomorrow we will be visiting them to read our first drafts and get their feedback.
Today we practised reading our stories aloud to each other. We are all VERY excited about tomorrow!!
