Nereea’s Learning Log
This week we did Drama. We used our masks and made a Greek play. It could be a comedy, a tragedy or a satire. Satire is when you make fun of everyday situations.
We did more Drama in Spanish. We had to act out different emotions and use the Spanish words to say what they were.
In maths my group were learning to read and write different times.
We also started to write a chase story. My story will be scary and exciting!
We had great fun at the drumming workshop. We learned to play lots of different rhythms and it sounded amazing!
Jonny’s Learning Log
I think this week I did well learning a Scots poem because I tried really hard. My poem I learnt the whole poem off by heart and I got chosen to read mine out in Assembly.
In ICT I got lots of facts about Ancient Greek artefacts and I saw lots of different artefacts and my artefact I chose was a Greek vase. Next time I will find out even more facts and we are going to use this information to help us in out art projec.Next week I want to get better at daily mile because I was talking lots but I will get much better by not talking.
I really enjoyed our novel Percy Jackson and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
We had a visit from Lari Don, whose daughters used to come to Hermitage Park. Lari has written lots of fantastic children’s books and she gave us lots of tips on how to improve our writing. We made up a chase sequence together and next week we are going to try writing our own chase sequences.
Calum’s Learning Log.
This week I learned that it’s better to wait if your dad or your mum gave you a marshmallow and they go away for five minutes and they said you’d get two marshmallowsif you don’t eat it. It’s better to wait because it’s worth it.
Next week I will get better at daily mile and get my stamina better.
This week I enjoyed PE because in gymnastics we were climbing.
We thought about New Year resolutions and turned them into positive affirmations, then we learned a New Year song and choreographed our own dances to it.
We also had money workshops provided by MyBnk. We learned that what we need and what we want are not always the same thing. We need to budget to work out how much we need to spend and how much we have left for other things. It was very interesting, we had fun and we worked hard in our groups.
We tried the Deputy 1st Minister’s P6 Maths Challenge. Some of it was difficult but we worked together to figure out the harder challenges.
We finished our Space topic and shared the results of our research with the other groups.
Anushka’s Learning Log w.c. 11.12.17
This week I learned how to do planet research. Alice and I really tried our best to find out more about Haumea and we learned a lot, like when it was discovered and what it is made of.
I enhoyed Christmas carol singing in Lochend Hub. I really enjoyed it because the adults were singing with us. It was really exciting how they got to sing too. We had a challenge to see who would win, the adults or the children. The children won by 2 votes to 1!
I could get better at Maths as it was hard to remember all the points of the compass.
We went carol singing at Lochend Hub. The people there said that we were great. The adults looked like they were enjoying singing as much as we were. We used bell shakers and Mr. Craighead played his guitar. We all had fun!
We had our Christmas Party on Thursday. We played games, had a snack and did three Scottish Country Dances!
We were doing a commercial dance with Mrs. McLaughlin. We had to work in group to make up our own dance moves.
