Below you will find your learning timetable for the week. You are not expected to do everything every day. Please make sure you are taking plenty of screen breaks and getting lots of fresh air. I’m looking forward to more wonderful learning this week!
Our Learning Hero this week is Rainbow Respect. Have a discussion at home about what being respectful sounds like, looks like and feels like.
I have attached a timetable for our week , I have tried to keep it as much like our normal week as possible but obviously some resources are not able to be put online so there will have to be a degree of flexibility. The resources for the lessons will be available in our google classroom. You do not have to follow the timetable directly but doing the tasks will help give your day some structure.
I will upload other activities which you may enjoy doing and will allow you time away from a screen, these will be design/art based, check google classroom for these.
Our learning heroes will still be running and this week it is independence so I will be looking out for that during the week. That said, I am here for you if you need any help or need questions answered.
Please be patient as I am currently on a huge learning curve myself getting used to google classroom and new ways of teaching and learning.
Here is you full timetable for the week. Please remember that this is just guidance and tasks do not have to be done at the exact times on the timetable…this is just to give you an idea of how long each task should be taking. Doing it at these times would help to keep you day structured.
Each day on our Google Classroom, there will be more detailed information and your tasks will be uploaded here.
Remember our Learning Hero this week is INDEPENDENCE so I’ll be looking out for this with every task.
Parents, please remember to let me know all the amazing things your children are getting up to!
Miss McKay is just learning too so if anything technical doesn’t work, then let me know and we will get it sorted.
What a fantastic effort P4 made for World Book Day this year. Well done everyone on your fabulous A-Z activities. We had decorated eggs and cakes, puppets of characters, hand made board games, drawings of front covers and favourite characters and lots of sharing of books and stories which are precious to us. In class we had a character description quiz which really tested the memories of books we read when we were much younger and we had a comprehension scavenger hunt to find our information about the history of World Book Day. This raised the question of who was the greatest writer Shakespeare or David Williams? It was such a lovely afternoon we even managed to get outdoors for a read. More days like this please!
P4 have been developing their painting skills this time by using watercolours. We learnt different watercolour techniques using salt, tissue, sandpaper, clingfilm, crayon and alcohol. We have linked our learning with watercolours to our geography work by painting the continents and oceans.
P4 have been developing their emotional literacy. We have been sharing what makes us happy, sad, angry and scared. We have also been thinking about ways of making ourselves feel better when we are sad, angry or scared. We created emotional characters to represent our emotions and the things which affect them. We created some drama scenarios to show different situations which can create strong emotions and strategies to manage them. So proud of P4 who showed great maturity when discussing their emotions.
We have been continuing with our learning about the amazing human body in P4. We have been playing a skeleton game to try to get ourselves more familiar with all our bones. We tried to work out where all our organs go in our bodies, we found this quite tricky so we made anatomy t-shirts to help us. We have also been learning about the different zones in our brain and how they control our bodies. We have been learning about our different emotions and how our brain can influence them. We learnt about how our emotional brain can override our logical/reasoning brain and lead to us flip our lids!
P6 have started a reflection carousel on a Friday as a way to reflect back on our learning during a week. One group each week will have the chance to write a post for the blog and Miss McKay will post this the following week. Below is our first reflection…
P6 have had a busy week. In Writing we have been doing our Big Writing assessments so we can get our new targets and we have started writing our stories for the BBC 500 words competition. In Numeracy we have made posters about our learning on fractions, decimals and percentages as an assessment. In Art we drew and labelled a brain to link with HWB. We have also been learning about strategies to cope with stress in our home teams. In ICT we presented our learning about how to be healthy and we also did surveys. In RME, we have been sharing what we believe in and discussing that we have a choice. We have moved our Spelling from afternoon sessions to morning sessions. This is working well because we are more focused. Our rule this week is ‘sc’.
In P4 we have been learning about the human body as part of our health and well being mini project. We have identified some of the bones in our bodies and the main features of our skeletons. We have also been learning about different joints in the body. This week we made a new hand for Iron Man, he wanted one which worked more like a human hand so we had to learn about how our hands work to make a working prototype for him. We have also been identifying our main organs and what they do in the body.
