This week in Art we painted a rainforest scene like Henri Rousseau’s picture. We weren’t allowed to leave any white spaces. We had to include loads of detail in our picture and we had to copy the picture as well as we could do. We had to be very careful.

In writing we read a pretend newspaper and started to write our own newspaper article but we only had time to write 2 or 3 paragraphs. It was about the gruffallo. My headline was Greatest Animal Ever!

This week in maths we were learning about money. We made a mini shop and we were buying things. We had to find different ways to pay.

We played a good game on the smartboard called ‘Ice-Cream’. We had to add up the coins.

We love the Rainforest song because it shows us the animals and it’s very colourful.

L.I.to show what I have been learning this week.

This week in maths we went round different tables doing different tasks. I found it pretty easy. My favourite task was the smart board. We got to do times tables games and 3d shapes on Education City.

In BIG writing we wrote a letter to someone saying what we are enjoying so far in p6a. I wrote mine to my little cousin Isla saying each thing we do and I wrote down everyone’s jobs.

This week I enjoyed doing my 3D hand and the Iron Man pictures.

Also Hibs came to school and showed us the Scottish cup and we were singing Hibs songs. Martin Boyle came as the player we were all really happy it was him.

We also had band auditions. I would really like to play trombone. We got a shot of each instrument and the trombone suited me most.

It helps us to remember our new spelling words and their meanings when we play games like Spin and Spell. You might have to spell the word by saying it or writing it or say what the word menas or use the word in a sentence.


More Spelling games

These are our wizard board games. You have to challenge your partner to spell your words the person with the most words on the board is the winner.


Maths topic

We have all been learning how to make nets for some complicated 3D shapes. This means you need to measure and cut very accurately. You also have to be able to work out what a 3D shape will look like if it were unfolded!
