East Lothian ICT Department has asked if we would put this link on our websites. The link should take you to a set of guidelines about Internet Safety and Responsible Use.

We have been learning about our 5 senses today. We played a game on the big board to help us. The children wanted it to be put on the website so they could play at home….so here it is!

*The children will need an adult to play this game with them as the text is too difficult for them to read alone. The grown-up might like to change the wording a wee bit too!

Measuring

One of the challenges in our Body Books is to include measurements of our bodies so this week we are learning all about measuring.
We went outside to measure different parts of the playground. We used our hands and feet to do this.

When we looked at our answers back in the classroom, we noticed that all the answers were different! We decided this was because we all have different sizes of feet and hands. This was not a good way to measure!

Next, we used cubes that were all the same size to measure things. This time, our answers were the same.

Today, the Primary 6 children came to help us take measurements for our body books. They are learning about measuring too. We used tape measures and rulers to do this.
