5A’s Secret Treat With Buddies

On Thursday our Buddies came and they brung books. We read our Buddies books with them.

Then we got an apple, took the stem off and put a lollipop stick  in but first we put our name on it and our class. Then we dipped it into chocolate and then we held it upside down and put sprinkles on it. We put it in a cupcake case so it didn’t drip off.

Today our buddies came over after break and we watched a movie because it was their topic. We ate our amazing chocolate covered apples because it combined our topic of Healthy Bodies and DIets too!

School Uniform Success from P4B – Congrats from P5A!

P5A’s School Responsibility is to help track how the school are getting on with wearing school uniform according to the school policy. We are regularly doing a survey across the school to show how we are getting on. This is really helping 5A’s learning too.

This week P4B had a full house of everyone wearing school uniform, so they got a Positive Recognition Certificate from Morgan and Daryl in P5A. Well done everyone in 4B, it must be ‘The Place To Bee’ to see great learning in school uniform!

What are the secrets behind P5A’s learning?

Here are the secrets behind all the great work in P5A….

Our topic is Healthy Bodies and Healthy Diet and we are making a scrumptious Tuckshop… – David

We put an egg in to a tub with liquid and waited 7 days. Mostly all egg shells changed but none cracked. Some eggs had bacteria on it. We were using eggs to simulate the enamel on your tooth. – Aiden B and Aidan Mc

When we were looking at everyone else’s experiments Mr Drysdale got us to pretend to be Victorian people at a Science Fair! – Emma

Every week we do cursive handwriting, and this week we learnt letter r and n. – Lexi

We have been solving problems with our buddies in P3A. – Connie

We had to get everyone across the lily-pads without touching the floor. We used control, balance, teamwork and co-ordination. – Isla and Maja.

Every Friday we do P.E and we are learning about hockey and playing games. Today we were doing 3 vs 3 and there was no one in goals. – Paton

What a busy week, check out the photos!




This week in P5A…

This week in Primary 5A we have been doing….

  • Cursive handwriting in our literacy jotters.
  • Reading our class novel The Iron Man.
  • We have written and imaginative response saying the Iron Man is.
  • We made a restaurant and menu for the Iron Man… For example Limo Lasagne and Metal Magic Meatballs.
  • Addition on robots for numeracy.
  • Something secret in science….

Our secret experiment was also one of our most interesting things this week. Turning out of date of crackers, orange juice and half a banana in to digested waste. We poured all of the ingredients in a plastic bag and mushed it all up then poured it all into a stocking to make it look like it was digested waste.
