This week we have started advertising the Christmas post – it starts on the 4th of December until the 20th December and we will deliver cards round the school. The postbox will sit at the main entrance. Please make sure envelopes are clearly marked with pupil full names and class!
We’ve been developing our understanding of what the main features of newspaper writing are – these include headlines, photographs with captions, the 5W’s (where, what, why, who, when), paragraphs and connectives. We made up our own newspaper articles on either imaginary events or real-life events.
We have done a lot of art this week including scratched off Blitz pictures and chalk solar systems.
In Maths we are concentrating on time, timetables, time/speed/distance calculations and converting hours/mins into decimal times – we get assessed on this next week! Eek!
We are starting to get our enterprise products organised and made – we have 3 groups who will work independently to produce their own products – make sure you save the date – 7th December!
Lastly we would like to say a huge thank you and goodbye to Mrs Ramsay – she’s been here our whole time at Low Port PS and we will miss her lots and lots. We think Mid Calder PS are very lucky to be getting her! Good luck Mrs Ramsay.
