This week P4/5 have started to learn about persuasive writing. They were introduced to rhetorical questions and had the opportunity to choose whether to persuade the reader that children should or should not be allowed to have mobile phones.
We also began our new topic which will be Space this term. We formed our new cooperative learning teams, found out what we already know and what we would like to learn and then kicked off our topic with this video which the children really enjoyed. https://youtu.be/ZHAqT4hXnMw
P4/5 have also been working on their team building skills with Miss Cran.
We focused on building confidence, working as a team and realising the impact of our actions on the outcome of the task. The children were amazing their comments and encouragement between each other were examples of sound foundations for great teamwork.
Every week I will be sharing some learning on the P4/5 blog. The children and I will talk about what we would like to share during our Friday class meeting. We hope that you will enjoy talking at home about what we are learning in school.
