A busy start to the term. The children have already started their new topic – The Scottish Wars of Independence – and we have been learning about the causes, re-creating the Ragman Roll, finding out about the Battle of Stirling Bridge and learning key facts about William Wallace.
Our new class novel this term is Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. The children brought in a selection of books that they would like to read and this was the most popular choice.
The class have a Scottish Poem to learn for w/c 30th January and should be working on this as part of their homework. We will be having a Scottish event with the other P5 classes before we break up for the February break.
This week we have been learning the vocabulary for different colours in French.
In PE the class have been doing gymnastics. A few action shots below.
