This week we have continued learning about negative numbers and we have also learned about the 24 hour clock, using timetables and rounding numbers.
We worked on our Reading Comprehension skills this week. We had to read some information and answer the questions in complete sentences. Some questions were about the passage and some asked for our opinions. Everyone did really well, giving some very thoughtful answers.
We did our last classroom lesson on Alcohol Awareness on Tuesday – next week we go up to Easter Road Stadium for the final session.
We were disappointed that our Sports Day had to be cancelled due to bad weather, but we did some of the races in the Gym Hall and still got house points. If the weather is good next week we hope to do some more of the races in the playground.
We have been campaigning all week for our committee members for next year. There were five posts to apply for: Health Committee, Pupil Council, J.R.S.O., Fairtrade Committee and Eco. Committee. We made banners, posters, flags and badges and each candidate had to write a speech and deliver it to the class. The campaign teams worked really hard to help give their candidate the best chance. The ballot takes place next Tuesday.
