FULL OF WORDS!
The P6b Word’O'Meter is filling up very quickly! We have now reached a massive 1,400,000 words! Our class target is to reach 2 million by Easter. At first we thought this seemed like a very difficult challenge but we are all working together and feel that we will meet this target.
Our Star Reader this week is Danni Lee who read 70, 315 words in one week. Well done Danni!
P6b have now reached 1 million words on our Word’O'Meter! This means that we are half way to reaching our target Our star reader last week was Lewis Scott who read an amazing 144,128 words!
At school in Victorian times, girls were asked to sew while the boys made geometric drawings. This week P6b made our own Geometric Drawings (all of us, not just the boys!). Take a look at our drawings.
The P6b Word’O’Meter is filling up very quickly. We have now reached 500,000 words! Our Star Reader this week is Sameer who read 3 books last week. He read 41,204 words in total. Well done Sameer!
P6b have turned into book worms! They have been given the class challenge of reading 2 million words by April. In the last week pupils have read 300,000! They are well on their way to completing the challenge. Take a look at our Word’O'Meter.
CLUSTER HOCKEY FESTIVAL
Today P6a and P6b went to Ross High School to play hockey against other schools in the Tranent cluster. We were in mixed teams and played lots of games. We enjoyed our morning and met some new friends. We are all very tired now!
THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
P6b have been learning about the digestive system today. To help us learn we took part in 4 experiments. The first experiment was a taste test. We had to taste 5 foods as well as writing about its colour, smell and texture. Some of the foods were delicious…others were not so good (as you can see from our photos!) The next test we did was to show us how fat is broken down. In the third test we had to join skipping ropes together to show how long the small intestine is if it was stretched out. In the last test we chewed on bread for one minute to show how saliva changes starch to make it taste sugary. We had a great time being scientists.
