In our home teams, we wrote a little bit of information about what we have been up to recently. We each chose a different subject.
Maths – Isla, Amy, Emma & Jay
We have enjoyed learning about multiplication because we have been doing times tables challenges. We have learned about time and division, they were both quite hard.
Topic – Callum, Anna, Hannah & Finlay
In our topic we have been learning some weapons that were used in castles, like halberd, longbow, mace, sword, catapult, crossbow and battering ram.
We painted castles in Art and we’ve made our own coat of arms. We’ve been learning the different jobs people did in castles. We wrote about what we would like to be or not like to be.
French – Fraser, Calum, Olivia & Connor
We have been learning about French in class. We have been doing numbers and colours. We learned parts of the human body. We can sing ‘head, shoulders, knees and toes’ in French. We have been singing songs about the days of the week and the months of the year. We have just started looking at the weather.
Trip – Iona, Mia, Aiden & Cameron
For our school trip we went to Holyrood Palace and the National Museum of Scotland. We liked it because Kayla was a servant at the palace. She had to clean the floor and it was funny. I think most of us liked it when we saw the animals at the museum. We smelled skunk spray – it was stinky! We looked at comets and saw special stones. We even weighed ourselves. Summer weighed the same as a snake and Isla weighed the same as a penguin.
PE – Emily, Kallum, Ethan & Kayla
In PE we enjoyed doing hockey and football with P3C. We liked doing running outside with Ms Seymore and doing football for 4 weeks with David. For Christmas, we got to do Christmas dodgeball and we liked it because it was really fun and entertaining. We also enjoyed racing. It was really funny because people kept falling over.
ICT – Summer, Ryan, Jack & Eva
We have been learning about Scratch. In Scratch we are learning to program our own animations. We have been doing a PowerPoint about castles too. We have been using the woodlands website to find information about castles for our PowerPoints. We have enjoyed learning about how to get on to hit the button.
