There has been some really exciting learning going on in P5A over the last few weeks, with pupils responding really well to some challenging chunks of skills and knowledge thrown their way.
We have been focussing on directions and coordinates in Maths. Plenty of practical work outside has helped with this. Everyone has been great at multiplying and dividing with 10,100,1000 and are still working on improving those fast facts in their multiples in numeracy.
IDL has seen great cooperative work with a focus of scavenging and building a survival shelter. This was great fun and a real challenge, but the class took away a lot from it and knew how to improve it if they had another chance. We even got a chance to wear wellies and waterproofs!
Elli – “We made a shelter using equipment thanks to the nursery! We used some crates, tarpaulin and lots of ropes and poles”
Aiden B – “We have been doing handball in PE with Mr Barrie”
Have a look at the photos to get an idea of what the learning has looked like.
