Don’t Worry, Be Happy- Talk and Tell Sessions

Hello everyone.
I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying the snow ⛄️
I wanted to let everyone know that if you had a Talk and Tell session booked for Wednesday or Thursday of this week and have missed it due to the snow storm, that I will be in touch with you next week to rearrange your appointment. You will not miss out on your Talk and Tell time, it will just be at a different time.
Stay safe and warm and I shall see you next week.
Mrs Hayes

Reflection Friday Flowers P5

I WORK CO-OPERATIVELY WHEN…
we were in teams at assembly. When we were doing our assembly on John Muir on Tuesday we had the ICT Team, Drama Team, Poster Team, Welcome Team, Book design team and the Music Team. Charlie/Logan T/Mark

We were with Miss McLaren on the computers. We were adding things about ourselves. Owen

I CAN NOW…
I can kick my legs pointed and straight 50 times at my ballet class. Anna
I can do cursive handwriting now and I know this because in my John Muir Report I tried Cursive and it worked. Mark
I can run fast now because when I was running in the 3G pitch I noticed that I am very fast. Logan K

I’VE BEEN THINKING/LEARNING ABOUT…
How did John Muir get into nature? Charlie
That John Muir was really smart. Hope
John Muir vs Urbanisation. I’ve been learning that urbanisation and John Muir can be correct because we need homes and nature. Sammy

I will practice…
My spelling bee because there are very tricky words in it. Joe
How to do my handstands longer. Annfell
My turns in ballet. Jasmine
My tumble turns in swimming. Findlay B
Our speech for prayer group for Wednesday. Heidi and Anna.

Primary 5 Used to think…but now they think…:-)

Good morning!
Today we will be reflecting on our week using our thinking routine “I used to think…but now I think….” This shows us what we have learned this week and maybe what we need to go back and check our understanding of.

Here goes…

“I used to think that drama was just about acting but now I think it is about not “corpsing” and staying in a character.” Charlie

“I used to think that I didn’t like BIG WRITING because I missed the first sessions throughout the week but now I think it is quite fun because I have been here and I enjoy it.” Eevayne

“I used to think that BIG WRITING was going to be easy because the first one was about super heros. Now I think its a little bit more tricky because we have to make our own board game. I kind of like it being a bit more tricky but when I ask Mrs Hayes I can get some help.” Heidi

“I used to think that I didn’t really like drama because when I do funny things I usually laugh but now I think that im getting used to it.” Aiden

“I used to think that the little hand was the minute hand but now I think that it is the big hand.” Abbie

“I used to think that drama was going to be quite tricky because you had to stay in character. I know think that you can have fun whilst in character.” Hannah

Thank you for listening to us.

Primary 5 weekly reflection

Today we enjoyed putting our BIG Writing skills to the test. We had to create a magazine/news article that showed how our friend got on this week.
We had to pretend to be journalists and we interviewed our friend about their week. We then used that information to create an article with a heading, subheadings, illustration, quotations and punctuation.
It took us a little longer than normal reflections but we were able to talk about it before doing it. Please see below for some of our articles.
