P5 and P2/3 had lots of maths fun when they worked together and explored measuring centimetres (cm) using a ruler. We now know that there are 100cm in a metre and 30cm in a long school ruler. We used our knowledge to help us to measure different lengths, widths and heights.

P2/3 and P5 have had a fantastic time working together to create their own spooky potions and spells using William Shakespeare’s famous poem from MacBeth as their reading and writing stimulus…’Double, double, toil and trouble, Fire burn and cauldron bubble!’

P2/3 and P5 enjoyed a fun reading buddy session in our school library this week. P2/3 shared their reading group books and chose a new library book to read at home with their family and friends. For a spooky Halloween treat, we all enjoyed reading some ‘Funnybones’ stories together! Next week we are all looking forward to some Viking fact finding using the non fiction topic books that we have received from the East Lothian Library Service.

Symmetrical Spelling!

P2/3 have been learning more about lines of symmetry and they enjoyed another fun maths buddy activity with P5. Each talking pair had to use a mirror to find the lines of symmetry in different capital letters and then draw in the missing half of each letter. Once they had completed the alphabet they worked cooperatively using their letters to make some of their group spelling words. We all agree…symmetry rocks!

P2/3 had a super morning learning more about shape, position and movement with their P5 maths buddies. They played three different games which helped teach them more about positional vocabulary and different ways to move. We are all looking forward to our next maths session after the holidays!

P2/3 had great fun on Friday morning sharing their favourite books and the holiday postcards that they wrote by themselves with their P5 reading buddies. They also enjoyed exploring lots of different non fiction rainforest topic books together. Next week we are all looking forward to another fun paired reading session in the school library where P5 have been helping P2/3 to browse, read and then borrow books by themselves.
