P6a Learning Log w.c. 23/1/17

Kyle’s Learning Log.

We did lots of outdoor learning this week and I enjoyed it because it was really fun. As part of our Space topic, we went out to get an idea of how far each planet is from the sun. We measured the distances in steps and one step was the same as 100 million kilometers! We also did some maths outside. We had to decide what information we wanted to gather, then we had to collect our data and represent it in any way we wanted.

On Wednesday we were doing P.E. and there were 5 stations. I think I did well because I had a sore nose but I kept going. My favourite station was number 3.

In music this week I learned how to play a bit of a Scottish song on the guitar and it is called Johnny Cope. I think I did not do well because I found it really hard.



P4b Learning Log 23rd-28th Jan

This week we learned all about Egyptian houses and what they were made from. They use mud stones. These were made by stacking bricks of mud on top of one another after being dried out in the heat! We then labelled an Egyptian home diagram!
This week we also went on a trip to the museum. We learned some fascinating things! We seen a replica of a mummies coffin. We also had a workshops and in the work shop we lear ed about mummification! We got to old ancient Egyptian charms. We had to be very careful with these as they are years old.

Here is an ancient Egyptian piece of jewellery that Aidan made for homework:

It was Robert Burns night on Wednesday. We designed our own Scottish Kilts and talked about different ways of celebrating Burns night!


P5a- Learning Log 27th January

This week in mathematics I have been learning about subtraction chimney sums. Here is an example 127-84=43. I have been learning to count in 2s. This week in literacy we have been learning about how to punctuate speech marks correctly in a small text message that we wrote ourselves. It was fun.

I think science went well because half of our class are supertasters witch means we have more than ten taste buds on a part of our tongue. 

Something that I think could have gone better is mathematics because I need more practice at chimney sumn.

P7b Learning Log 16th-20th January


This week in maths we were learning about enterprise as well as tying up loose ends in volume and surface area. On the subject of volume and area, instead of a boring test we created 3D buildings out of paper (only using cubes and cuboids) and then calculated the surface area and volume of the buildings. We also began to scratch the surface of enterprise and budgeting. We were given a scenario in which we had to organise a craft sale. From BOGOF to buying 800 envelopes, we had to do all the budgeting, calculations and everything in between.


At the time of writing this, it is drawing ever closer to Burns night so in celebration of this world famous poet we are studying one of his more famous works, Tam O’ Shanter. We have drawn story maps marking the events of the poem using no words whatsoever. This is to give us some experience in storytelling and including lots of detail. As a side note our story maps were based on the novelisation of Tam O’ Shanter by Lari Don.


This week in P.E. we were doing more yoga and gymnastics. We are also going to be having tryouts for cross country running at the Meadows. In gymnastics we were doing cart wheels and multiple other activities (such as the straddle vault and the backward roll). In yoga we were all doing multiple poses at the same time such as” the downward dog” and the “half lord of the fishes”.


In music we were learning how to play Auld Lang Syne on the glockenspiel in pairs. We were given more freedom to continue further. Everyone seemed to enjoy the lesson and get the hang of the song and notes.
