P7b Learning Log – 13/10/17

LI- to evaluate my learning and set a target

I enjoyed drama and we were pretending the person in the middle was stanley, the warden or zero and asking them question the SSPCA came in to talk about animals. In the gym hall we were practising our scottish opera play and we had three groups the tavern crew, witches crew and the storm crew. In maths we are learning how to use rounding to make sums easier. We drew still life drawings in art.
Lewis’s target-to be more focused on my work. 

Alba-to read everything I need to in time. 

P4a Learning Log 25th August 2017

 

Welcome to Primary 4a!

We are looking forward to a very busy term. We have many exciting activities coming up:

  • We will be reading ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ and completing many challenging but also fun activities related to the book.  We will be learning about the characters, settings and the adventures that take place.
  • We will be creating lots of art as well as inventing our own sweets and the          machines to make them.
  • We will be learning how to be good storytellers, using story maps  and  story      sticks to help us.
  • We will be attending swimming lessons, doing our daily mile challenge and     being coached in rugby.
  • We will also be doing outdoor learning for some of our activities.

 Enjoy looking at our photographs and reading our blogs.

We enjoy choosing a selection of books to read.

 

 

We love learning how to play rugby with Ross the rugby coach. Even in the rain!

We have been outside learning about 2D and 3D shapes in the environment.

In maths this week I learnt about 2D and 3D shapes. I was able to find 2D and 3D shapes outside. I need to get better at counting vertices and edges. In writing I learnt about joining my letters and I need to get better at doing this. *Swimming   *Shape booklets

I was able to draw a cuboid for Willy Wonka’s factory. I need to get better at drawing straight lines. This week in writing we made up our own Roald Dahl story characters. *Rugby *Gym.

THE SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT

Olivia- In the history workshop we discussed who could vote years ago and now. Many people think women could not vote but what they didn’t know was that 10years before that women who were rich or owned their house could vote. You used to have to be 21 to vote but then they lowered it to 18 and yet again to 16.

MSP- We did a question and answer session with an MSP called Gordon Lindhurst. Before he was an MSP he worked in a court. He has been an MSP since April 2017. In his first speech he talked about his family. If he could get one law passed it would be to change work hours so that he could spend more time with his family.

Ruby- We went to the debating chamber and there were very tight rules. MSPs were debating roadworks and child/carer benefits. This was very interesting and it was cool how we got an extra insight into how the council deal with these problems.

SAMBA DRUMMING

We have started practising our samba drumming which we will use in our ‘Bugsy Malone’ show. Arwen’s dad and Beth have very kindly worked with us. We are loving it. We even managed to samba drum in the playground and attracted a very appreciative crowd.

THE HUB

On Wednesday 24th May, Primary 7b visited The Hub to take part in an art workshop. It was called Soul Boxes. Two artists came in to our class last week and we looked at the photos we had brought in. We talked about our memories when we looked at these pictures. When we were in The Hub, we were given photocopies of our pictures so that we could cut them up and use craft materials on them. We made collaged pages which we put into our memory (soul) boxes.

Khadija- I think it was really fun. It was really nice being creative. I really liked my soul box.

Lavine- I thought making the soul box was really fun and it made me think about some of the things that were happening in the photos.

Ruby- I loved this trip and it was such a throwback to all those memories of fun times and sad. This definitely taught me to act more creative more often. My collaged skills have improved.

Joe- I think it was really good and the pictures brought back memories and they were sometimes sad and happy. I think it was a good opportunity.

Alcohol Awareness Trip

This week all the P7s and P6s went on a trip to the Hibs stadium at Easter Road. We went for the first part of our alcohol awareness course that carries on over 8 weeks every Tuesday. We got split into 3 groups mixed with the four classes, each of our groups did different activities. Our first activity was a chat with Stuart (one of instructors). He talked about how most athlete don’t usually drink and why you shouldn’t drink if you want to be an athlete. Then Sue gave us a tour of the stadium. Then Aaron gave us a fitness activity.

Music and Drama

This week we did our Bugsy Malone auditions for the main parts. The main parts were: BUGSY, BLOUSEY, FAT SAM AND DANDY DAN these were all classed as main parts although I think Tallulah and Leroy should have been classed as main parts too.

Wonder

Last week our class started a novel called Wonder about a boy called August who has Treachers Collins syndrome, a condition that deforms the face. We have read up to the part when August is visiting his new school. He got a tour round the school by some people that were going to be in some of his classes. The children’s names were Charlotte, Julian and Jack Will. He liked Jack Will and Charlotte but August wasn’t that keen on Julian.

Maths

This week in maths we were doing negative numbers. I really enjoyed this and it gave us a head start for high school. We were doing sums like:18-{-19}=

       18+19=37

This was third level maths and I was pretty surprised at this as it was actually easy for most of us. A tip for negative numbers is to always remember that 0 still counts as a whole number.
