Hello from P5P
Halloween silhouettes – we used paint to fill the background and black paper or charcoal to put Halloween inspired images over the paint and then we did pictures around it and they looked amazing.
Halloween stories – we made Halloween stories and we tried to make them creepy and they all were.
We got told to use VCOP and particularly adjectives.
Subtraction – in maths the blue textbook were taking away money of furniture while using a strategy. The orange textbook were finding the difference between different values e.g. difference between 135 and 375=240.
Endangered animals – for our class talks we have to make a PowerPoint the rules are:
• It has to show what the animal looks like
• 7 mins long
• Where it comes from?
• Who are its predators are?
We have been doing fitness and games in PE and next week we start a block of country dancing! We have started thinking about our new topic by stating what we know and would like to know about the Scottish Wars of Independence. We discovered that we don’t know a lot yet which should make the topic even more interesting. We had a visit from the Wild about Scotland bus who talked to us about endangered animals and encouraged us to investigate and classify threats to Scottish wildlife (pollution, over hunting, natural disasters, habitat loss, live capture, invaders). We had a great time with them and this is the theme we have chosen for our class talks. Information about this has been sent home this week with homework.
Have a lovely weekend!
Finlay, Alex and Miss Paton
