We are going to enter the National Gallery’s Art competition – the focus is dragons. We began by researching dragons and thinking about the key features our dragons must have. Next week we will begin drawing our dragons. We are very excited about this and have lots of great ideas!

In Maths we have been learning about number families. We know that we can somersault an array and write it as a multiplication and division sum. For example:

2 x 4 = 8

4 x 2 = 8

8 ÷ 2 = 4

8 ÷ 4 = 2

Some of us were finding it tricky writing the division as a sum, we must remember that we always start with the big number when we write a division sum.

Here’s a website to practising these at home:

Well done SF who showed resilience and confidence when learning about number families, Miss Baillie was very impressed!

In Literacy we learnt how to write a question using a question mark. We know that we use a question mark instead of a full stop. We can tell if a sentence is a question by looking for question words like why, what, who, where and when.

We looked at strange photos and wrote fantastic questions:

We also had a look at pictures of New Lanark and came up with some questions we want to ask on our trip:

Tuesday: New Lanark trip – please send children to school with a packed lunch and a waterproof jacket.

Wednesday: PE with Mrs Reid will be outside as the hall is being used for Scottish Opera. If it looks like it’s going to rain please send children with waterproofs and jogging bottoms.

We will have a week off spelling words next week as it is our trip and we have still have a few phonics check-ups to complete. We will still give out new reading books.

Love P2A and Mrs Bell x
