Week 6 - Primary 4/5 Blog

This week we have been learning about Tsunamis.

  • A Tsunami is a big wave and is also known as a wave train - because lot of waves keep coming after each other.
  • The waves crash over land.
  • The word Tsunami comes from Japan.
  • Japan, Canada, Italy and America have all suffered from a Tsunami.
  • Tsunamis start in the sea.
  • Tsunamis can cause lots of damage - death, homes, buildings, vehicles can all be affected.

In maths some of us have been learning about exchanging.

Spelling groups have been learning about different sounds and blends.

Group 1 - 'ea' words

Group 2 - 've' words

Group 3 - 'qu' words

In P.E we have been practising our gymnastic skills - circle roll, different stretches, straddle rolls, some people can do backward rolls, side rolls and forward rolls.

In Literacy we have been focussing on our handwriting and up-levelling our sentences like this.......

Instead of writing 'I went to the shop'.... we can write.....

'On Saturday, I went to the sweet shop, which was blue, with my friends.'

This makes our sentences more interesting to read.

Last week we made 3D volcanoes!

We had a busy week again in P4/5.

We took part in some outdoor learning - using a stopwatch to time each other jumping, running and walking.

On Friday, we had a rugby sessions, it was good fun!  We played games and learned some Rugby skills. 

Every Sunday there are rugby sessions at the North Inch, there are flyers at reception with all the information.

We are currently tracking hurricane Irma over Florida and are learning about how different natural disasters affect people.

Week 3 - Primary 4/5 Blog

 We have been working on co-operation skills in P.E and we have discovered that some of us are better than others at working together.  We need to stop complaining about each other and decide whether things are a small, medium or a big deal before we start complaining or telling on other.

 

We have also started our reading groups - please talk to us about our books.

This is what the children say about their learning....

Alfie  - 'I made a comic book'

Bailey - ' I made three comic books'

Sophie - ' I learned bonjour and au revoir'

Jaiah  - 'I learned the different natural disasters. (hurricanes, tornados, tsunamis, volcanoes, landslides, avalanche, flood and drought)'

Amber M - 'I learned that volcanoes can erupt at any second'

Aimee -  'We have practised the 3X table'

Amy-Lee  - 'When I finish my work, I have been using the computer'
