Everyone enjoyed the gorge walk, rechristened ‘George Walking’ (thanks Felix!), at Lagganlia this week… freezing cold water, a whirlpool, rock slides, cannonballing, waterfalls…Amazing!

Vikings Rock!

P2/3 worked with their P5b reading buddies to research and learn more about the Vikings. Each talking pair chose a non fiction Viking topic book and then used the Contents and Index pages to help them to read, select and note down any interesting Viking facts. Some of the class also used the Glossary to help them to understand what some very tricky Viking topic words meant. We are all really looking forward to meeting again next week to finish our reading for information topic task.

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!’
