Primary 5 have spent a lot of time this week looking at emotion talks. We based our lessons on the main character in the novel ‘There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom’. We talked about emotion words, emotion triggers, body sensations and behaviours. Finally, we discussed emotion regulation ‘what I can do to make myself feel better when my emotions are strong’.
In literacy Primary 5 have been introduced to AR (Accelerated Reader). We are aiming to do 30 minutes of reading a day in class, taking our novels home is optional. We encourage the children to enjoy reading and challenge themselves by being aware of their ZPD (zone of proximal development). We are also beginning to look at comprehension work and literacy circles (focusing on reading skills).
In numeracy we are revising our mental maths strategies and addition/subtraction. We are also beginning to look at 2-D shapes and their properties.
Please remember that we have meet the teacher evening, next Wednesday (28th August) at 3:20pm.
We hope you have a lovely weekend.
Miss Cornes and Mrs Samson
