Welcome to the brand new P5 weekly blog! We hope you enjoy it!
Today’s blog comes from the Marshmallow Minions – Kayleigh, Kirsten, Rory, Kate, Cara and Oli.
Kirsten is enjoying Maths and is doing subtraction using mental strategies.
Rory has been enjoying creating our Minecraft themed class charter. He and others have made up their own minecraft characters, buildings, monsters and animals showing lots of imagination.
Kayleigh and Kate enjoyed our swimming assessment at Bathgate particularly when they had to dive under the water to collect the toys – between them they managed to grab 5! Thanks to Maisie’s mum and Freya’s dad for helping us with this trip.
Oli and Cara loved the handball because we got to play lots of games and then we got to play an actual match. The 2 skills we learned were throwing and finding space. The 2 rules we learned were you can run with the ball for 3 steps and you can only hold onto the ball for 3 seconds.
Bikeability started this week but it was all about bike checks which Rory thought was a bit boring BUT once he got cycling it was fun and we’re all looking forward to next session. A big thank you to Mrs Garcia and Mrs Wilson who are organising this.
We used dictionaries this week in comprehension but some of us found this a bit tough so Oli thinks we need to keep practising!
Funny moment of the week was during handball when Harry headed the ball into Rory’s hands – well done Harry and Rory!
Also when Zara accidentally hit Maisie and Freya on the head during the throwing game – everyone laughed a lot including Maisie and Freya!
Thanks for reading – see you next week!
