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’.
Our class novel in P4 at the moment is Varjak Paw by S F Said one of the reading skills we have been practising is summarising. Every
time we read some of the story we try to summarise it making each summary shorter but ensuring we include the main points. We are getting really good at this. We have put our summaries up on display so we can recap what last happened and it’s really helpful if someone misses part of the book they can quickly catch up on the story.
Thank you to Heather and the team at East Linton Library for the wonderful extracts from the works of Roald Dahl – we loved working out which books they came from and talking about all the books we are reading just now.
After a exciting return to school in August, the children have been continuing to work hard to develop their learning powers. Here are some of our Learning Heroes so far this year. Please now keep up to date weekly on our school Twitter page @EastLintonPS! :0)
Today our second level pupils – P5,6 & 7s – worked together in trios to reflect on their learning this term and to plan for their next steps. We encouraged our pupils to see the progression in the learning in their assessment jotters – as individuals and across the three classes. Well done everyone!
