Primary 5 and Primary 2’s weekly reflection


In P2 and P5 today we have been thinking about our week. This week…

I see…
The Scottish Hibs cup
Me doing my maths with my friends
My teacher smiling
Me needing help with my reading and I got it
My friends playing the playground and being kind with their words

I think…
That I could do with help with adding numbers. My brain hurts when I do it.
I LOVE mathletics and it helps me get quicker at my numbers.
I did really well using oil pastels in art making my basket.

I wonder…
What we are doing in Art next week. I LOVE art.
If we will be learning more about The Cay our topic book.
If we will have an assembly or a hymn practice.

See you all next week!

Reflection Friday P5

This week we have enjoyed:

2. We are learning how to think better. Mrs Hayes is helping us get our thoughts and I wonder’s out of our heads by talking and by writing. We used I see, I think, I wonder to help us in R.M.E and in planning our new topic.

3. We LOVED our homework task this week and spent time this morning in circle time sharing our ‘Getting to know you’ boxes. We know more about our friends now.

Thank you for listening and we shall see you next week.

2. Reading – Please read the allocated pages of your AR group novel for your allocated reading days. (Monday, Tuesday and Thursday)
3. Getting to know you Challenge – I want to get to know every single person in P5 and learn more about their skills, ambitions and god given talents. Please create a box/bag/container that holds items that tell me a little bit more about you as an individual. We will share these at circle times on Friday and Monday.

Please ensure that your homework is in on time to be able to get a COOL CARD this week!

Primary 5’s fantastic first week!

imageWelcome back from the Summer Holidays to all of our friends in all of the St Martin’s Classes.
On Thursday we started to make our Olympic medals in Art with Ms McLeod and this is one of our highlights.

Eevayne – “I am really good at Calm Time because I was able to fall asleep and have a rest when I didn’t think I could. It just makes me less tired and I can do my work in the afternoon better.”

Charlie – “Last year I rushed my reading but this year I am taking my time.”

Sammy – “Last year my handwriting was really messy and its a lot better now.”

Abbie – “I’m not that good at Art and the modelling has been really hard. Mrs Hayes has asked me to ‘Ask 3 before me’ and then if I’m still stuck I could ask the teacher.”

Anna – “I’m not good at spelling and I ask my friend to help me but I want to learn to do it myself. I would like Mrs Hayes to know this so that she can help me.”

Over and out from P5 and we shall see you next week!
