Last week P5 took part in an Outdoor Education problem solving task. We were split into groups and attempts to resolve 5 problem solving tasks. While doing the tasks we discovered how important it is to discuss possible solutions with our team mates, listening and respecting the opinions of others.
It has been a very busy week for us here in P5.
- In French we have learned how to count to 20.
- We invited our parents in to share a French breakfast;
” I really enjoyed the French breakfast because we had an egg hunt and lots of French food.” Ben, age9 (nearly 10), 5B
- We started work on our French personal presentation.
- We have been translating French words into English.
- We were invited to watch the P7 musical.
- On Monday we did problem solving activities at the Whiskey Bottle, at the bottom of the Law.
Next week we have Malawi day to look forward to, we’ll be learning more about the country and its people. We also have the option of dressing in the Malawi flag colours (red, green and black) for a small contribution to our Malawi fund.
Have a great weekend, Miss Brodie.
- We had our first French class and we learned how to count up to ten.
- We have begun the preparation for our First Golf lessons which start next week.
- We are learning orienteering in PE.
- Our very own Johannes was awarded this year’s Scots Afternoon Quaich for his outstanding performance on the flute (and for his fab kilt!). Congratualations!
We begin next week with a problem solving outing so please remember your spare set of clothes. Have a great weekend, Miss Brodie
Last week saw the anticipated opening of our own class shop, `Woolworths Number 2, North Berwick’. This shop stocks hand-crafted souvenirs of our town manufactured by local artist (us!!). The variety of goods available is outstanding and there is something for everyone; whether you want a model of the Law, a rugby ball or some handmade shortbread. We would welcome comments from the North Berwick public as we appreciate any feedback that you can offer. If you made a souvenir, how did you find the experience? Did you enjoy making your souvenir or did you have many problems to contend with? Let us know. Miss Brodie
P5 spent time designing and creating souvenirs to display in a shop in their classroom. They thought about the importance of tourism to North Berwick and researched different types of souvenirs and what made them quality items. The variety of souvenirs produced by the children was excellent and the shop looks great.
The children are currently spending time shopping in their shop and selecting which items they think they would like to give as presents to someone if they were visiting North Berwick.
On Thursday 4th March, it was World Book Day and to celebrate, in P5, we participated in a national live weblink to a reading by Michael Rosen of his latest work. Many of us found it very interesting and very funny. If you would like to learn more about Michael Rosen can I suggest his website, which you can visit by clicking on the link below:
