P5 News and Home Learning w/b 15th May 2023

Last week in Primary 5 we continued our project on Japan and started to build an idea of the history of the country and compare it to Scotland and other countries that we know about. We will be continuing to look at the history of Japan up to the modern day this week coming and start to compare the culture and traditions with our cultures and traditions. In Maths we have been focusing on time and subtraction and we will continue looking at these areas over the next few weeks. In Literacy we are building on our reading detective skills by predicting what is happening next from the text we are reading.

We continue to work on our Social Enterprise project and have been out in the playground weeding and sorting our vegetable planters. We will be sending out a overview of the times and events taking place in P5 shortly so that we are able to keep track of all the things we will be undertaking in P5 over the coming weeks.

On Thursday we had a fun P5 activity day and shared our outdoor experience with P5 at Preston Street. In the morning we went den building and had outdoor games in Holyrood Park. After a lovely lunch in the Park we made our way to the Crags, where we had three activities over the afternoon. We all had a chance to take part and to play football or climb the traverse wall, dance and a coached basketball session.

Home Learning this week will be sent out in the bags on Monday and should be returned completed on Friday for discussion and self correction. This week’s comprehension will be a report format with questions and there will be spelling sheet and maths. Thank you for your support in this matter.
