Welcome to P5H’s Weekly Reflections
We have had a very busy week preparing for Enterprise evening. Sadly our salt dough idea did not work very well and we had to change our plan. Lolly pop stick Christmas tree decoration and a “Guess the Bear’s Birthday”.
We had to do a lot of maths calculations to work out the best price for our ideas. We even did a survey of all the pupils and adults in the school to see what they thought. We had to work out what was the lowest price just to cover costs. We also had an interesting discussion about when something might become too expensive. We had to think about how much money an adult might spend if they had a larger family. We did finally agree but it needed lots of discussion.
We have also created a great whole class dance in PE. It has a Scottish country dance theme. We worked in pairs and fours to make it and had to think about eight beats and moving in different direction. Mrs Livingston, Mrs McCartney and the primary ones came to watch us; it was nice to have an audience. We are going to show Mr Carswell next week. Mrs Henderson said she will video it so we can watch ourselves dance.
We all self-assessed our own class talk. It was interesting to see what we thought we did and what we actually did. We learned a lot about how we presented ourselves and about how much eye contact we gave our audience.
We hope you enjoyed our class enterprise. We had great fun serving on the night and making our products.
Have a good week.
P5H and Mrs Henderson
