P5 News and Home Learning

What a great week for Primary 5!

They enjoyed the Scots Week and worked with Mr Humphreys to produce a fantastic a capella Donald Where’s your Troosers! at the Scots Week Showcase and in assembly. Watch out for pictures on the Scots Week blog that will be released shortly.

Primary 5 also had a visit, this week, from Social Enterprise Academy and Scottish Government to take a look at how our Social Enterprise Project, The Royal Mile Planters is getting on. Our visitors were very impressed by the knowledge the children had of their project and how welcoming they were. The class had a board meeting and started to discuss, with the direction of their appointed managers for this term, Lorina and Aron what they required for resourcing the project and the timeline that was needed to meet this.

Home Learning should be back on Friday and once again it is maths and literacy which is a poem with comprehension questions. It is great to see the class giving their home learning a real go and self marking it on its return.

Homework w/b 23rd January and P5 News

Another great week and P5 have been working on writing poetry using rhyme and free verse, have a look at the Head Teacher’s Sway to see a few examples of the great writing they have been doing. In Maths we started to look at regular Polyhedrons and we are continuing to use our number processing skills with our mental math strategies. We will be focusing on Place Value for our whole school mental math strategies focus and a challenge sheet for the class will be posted shortly for you to try at home.

This week is Scots Week and we will be singing Scots songs and dancing with P6 and P7. We hope that you will be able to come to our Scots Showcase at 11.30am on Friday to see what we have been able to accomplish over the week (participation is optional).

On Thursday 26th we will be having a visit from the Social Enterprise Academy who are coming to catch up with us and bringing with them guests from Scottish Government. We are going to be demonstrating our business skills and telling them all about the plans for our Social Enterprise project and our Dragon’s Den competition bid,watch this space for any Breaking News.

Finally another big thank you for undertaking the Home learning and returning it school promptly on Friday or before Friday. This week it was lovely to get some extra poems by Lynda and I enjoyed reading them. Some of the Home Learning in Maths this week has still to be covered in class but some of the class may like to try to work out the answers so I have left the questions in. The children are confidently marking their home learning and discussing any queries that they have on Friday in class. Once again home learning should be returned to school on Friday, those who are not able to complete it will have an opportunity to complete it in class.
