Fractions in Leaves

Today in P5&6, we took our learning of Fractions into the great outdoorsπŸŒ€β˜€οΈπŸπŸ‚

We were set a challenge to explore leaf colours and find some that were partly coloured yellow, brown and green!  The hardest ones to find were those 2/3 of a yellow leaf, most where completely yellow or brownπŸπŸπŸ‚πŸ‚

We loved exploring and thinking about the fractions, we discovered equivalence of fractions along with the leaf colours and shapes in the Autumn season!


With some muddy shoes but happy smiles we came back into the classroom to record our findingsπŸ‘πŸ» Check out our videoπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

 

Poppy Art

 
 
 
 

Today in Primary 5&6 we learnt all about Remembrance Day! We recognised why it is so important to remember fallen soldiers and those who died for our freedom!
We looked at and read the poem “In Flanders Fields” listen to the video of us reciting it and take time to remember those who gave their tomorrow for our today❀️❀️

 

We also created lovely Poppies for our windows❀️❀️

Outdoor Learning in P5&6

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

This half term we have been taking our learning into the great outdoors as much as we can.  From finding the perimeter to calculating the area of the football pitch and playground, sitting under the trees exploring RE and problem solving in Numeracy along with our daily mile.  We really enjoy getting the fresh air and exploring our fabulous school grounds.

 

Our Egyptian Masks

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

In September and October we have really enjoyed learning all about the Ancient Egyptians.  We  loved researching and finding out about the Pharaohs, Mummification and the River Nile. 

In Art we explored Egyptian Masks and we have thoroughly enjoyed designing our own and using clay to make them. 

Check out the slideshow of us at work.  These are now drying out and will be ready to paint and decorate when we get back...... we will be sure to show you all the finished results. 

Look at the enjoyment on those faces!

Children's Mental Health Week 2021

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Check out the photos of how we have celebrated 'Children's Mental Health Week 2021'.  We have been encouraged to take time out each day to do something that makes us happy and think positive thoughts.  We are all different, unique and have many different stresses and worries but its important for us to remember there are people who can help us and we can succeed.

 

Sonny, Alfie and Myah have all been baking!  Myah made her own Birthday Cake - 'Happy Birthday Myah!' πŸ°πŸŽ‚πŸ°πŸ§
