P3/4/5 Museum Trip

We had a wonderful day at the Museum of Scotland on Monday. The children showed fantastic manners and behaviour and took great interest in learning all they could from the experience.

After a look at some of the galleries they were able to handle a variety of roman artefacts.  We then had a very interesting talk about the roman army from one of its Centurions!

P3/4/5 Meet the Romans

The class have been very busy discovering lots of interesting things about Romans and their lives.

We have been focusing on note-taking in reading and the children have been using these skills while investigating the Romans.

So far they have taken notes on Roman Gods and made posters which included making a mosaic of the God.  They are now working in small groups to investigate Roman slaves, gladiators or soldiers and will present their information however they choose (within reason!).  There are already some very exciting ideas happening. Watch this space for the results.

P3/4/5 News

The class have continued to use the theme of George’s Marvellous Medicine to help their leaning.  They were given a challenge to draw characters from the story using standards units of measure.  We had some very small and tall Grandmas and a chicken with very long legs!

P3/4/5 George’s Marvellous Medicine

P3/4/5 are settling in well and have been building up relationships with their new home team members in class.  They are enjoying their novel study, ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’.  They have listened well to the story and identified the (often very funny) words used to describe Grandma.  In home teams they drew Grandma from this description.  They used their knowledge of measure to make a ‘marvellous medicine’ of their own – pictures attached!
