P4/5 have had a busy start to November. This week was Anti-bullying Week and we had lots of sensible discussions about what bullying is and what we can do to get help. We worked with a partner to decide if behaviours were bullying and then created our helping hands with who we would tell if we had worries and what we would do first. This included saying STOP, telling an adult, using the bubble time box or speaking to a friend.
We have been learning of ways to help us add and subtract larger numbers and how to solve word problems. We can use our quick maths facts, doubles, empty numberlines and bar models. Ask your child to show you how to use these! Try playing ‘Measure’ at home. This helps to practise skip counting e.g ( counting in 2s, 3s, 4s) and times tables! We also use Sumdog, Activelearn and Education City games to practise and apply our maths skills. These can all be played at home.
We are enjoying football skills with Mr McMillan and now play mini games. We taught Miss MacDonald 2 types of dodgeball too!
In Art activities, we have learnt how to mix primary colours, white and black to make different shades and tones. Look at this fantastic Autumn Art!
It was a colourful morning in P4/5! Happy ‘Children in Need’ Day!
