Harry and Alexander: The P4s and P5s have been swimming at Dunbar Leisure Pool. We were showing how we could swim to the teacher. We’ve been doing our reading challenge and the whole school has been doing it.
Keira, Joe and Olivia: We heard the Wee Bannock story. We also listened to a story called Assipattle and the Stoor Worm. We have been listening to these because our new project is Scottish Stories.
Ben and Charlie: We have been marbling which means you put special ink into a tray of water and you mix it together. Then you put a piece of paper onto it and you wait about ten seconds. Next you pick up a corner of the paper and you will see patterns on the piece of paper from the ink. In writing we were writing about how to tell Zog the alien about Earth and our earthly ways.
Sam and Serena: We were silhouetting- which is drawing black shapes of things. In talking and listening with Mrs Williams we are planning to do a book talk and so we need to bring in our book. We need to talk about the characters and plot and why we recommend it.
Jake and Darwin: At gym we played Taxis and its the game where there are seven mats out and you have to run around and when they say stop and a number you have to get onto a mat with that exact number. In maths we were finding the number before and after. We picked a number up to 1000 then rolled the dice to see what number you got, whatever that number was you found the number after and the number before.
Carlo and Emma: In maths we were doing problem solving. Problems are where sums are written in words. In the Fractions for maths we learned how to measure liquid in measuring jugs and there was a game where you had to estimate how much water a container would hold. You had to try to get it right.
Peggy and James: In the afternoon we keep reading at ERIC time by being quiet when we are reading.
