It was lovely to see all the parents and carers who came to chat with me yesterday. I thought I would just share photographic evidence of the boxes we made for our gas masks:
The children have told me that this required them to use their maths, art, design and topic knowledge.
To help us learn more about the city in which we live, each class has been given local monuments to research and present. In P7 we have been looking at the statues to David Hume and James Clerk Maxwell. Rather than inviting you in, as we know that you can be very busy, we thought we would take you on a ‘virtual tour’ on our blog.
To start off we have researched and collated short biographies of each of our subjects:
We hope that you found this interesting, and we will add more information later.
David Hume’s statue is on the High Street on the other side from St Giles cathedral just before the Mound.
James Clerk Maxwell’s statue is on the east end of George Street.
We will add details about the buildings named after them tomorrow (fingers crossed).
Dear Mums, Dads and Carers,
As this is the last term before the holidays and of Primary 1, I will be sending home a little bit more homework. This is to prepare us for Primary 2 and the extra work we might be asked to do there.
*Starting from Monday I will be sending a homework activity in our folders. It will alternate every week between a Literacy task and a Maths / Numeracy task.
Homework should be returned by Thursday.
It is optional but the tasks sent home are there to help revise learning that we are doing in class. It is a good habit to start too. Repetition and practise are key components to learning.
*New reading books will still be given out on a Tuesday.
A general overview of our reading in class is:
Tuesday = 1st ½ of the book
Wednesday = 2nd ½ of the book
Thursday = Questions to develop comprehension
If you have any questions please ask. Thank you for your continued support,
We could not resist the weather today! Fractions outside 🙂 Equivalence, simplifying, decimals, adding…
