We have been learning about the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World.
We worked in groups to research facts and then presented our findings to the rest of the class.
In maths we have continued to learn about position and direction, learning how to plot coordinates and give directions using compass points.
In writing we have focussed on character description and wrote fantastic imaginative stories.
We enjoyed sharing our favourite stories for World Book Day and drew some wonderful illustrations.
Here is a snapshot of what we have been doing this week:
Charlotte and Charlie – We have enjoyed maths this week because we have been learning about coordinates, journeys and directions.
Archie – I’m really enjoying our new topic all about the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. I like researching facts.
Elly, Niamh and Rae – we enjoyed drawing daffodils and painting with water colours.
Isla – I’m enjoying playtime because I have lots of friends to play with.
Sam and Archie – I really like being in the woodland group, its great fun.
Charlotte – I have enjoyed homework this week as creating a wordsearch was fun.
Everyone has enjoyed fitness circuits in PE especially the counter balancing, relays and using the stilts.
We had a visit from Tim Porteus, the author of East Lothian Folk Tales for Children.
He is a superb storyteller and had all of the pupils enthralled by his stories.
He has set us a challenge to find out about the legend of the Piper’s Stone in Dirleton. Does anyone know anything about it? If so, please let us know.
