In Handwriting we were practising the diagonal join to the letter “r” and working hard on our letter formations and pencil control.

In Maths we played a game of “Noggle”. We all tried our best to make the biggest number! The highest number was 151,361. We also finished off division with remainders. In Big Maths we all had great scores.

In PE this week we played games in the wing like “Extreme Dodge Ball”. We also played a game of “Rounders” against P4. We all had great fun!

In Reading we had our second last Reading Circle. We also used the “Literacy Box”. Everyone did a great job at their roles especially the Word Wizards.

In Science we made our own food chains using pictures of animals and then we wrote them down. We also did activity sheets with animals. We did a word search for one of our activity sheets. It was good fun!

On Tuesday we went to the Book Festival to meet the author of the Museum Mystery Squad books. The name of the author was Mike Nicholson he told us about his book called “The case of the Vanishing Viking”. Some of us ordered the book which he signed for us.

In writing this week we wrote 50 word stories of our own mystery’s following the visit to the Book Festival at the Rugby Club.

In Art we designed our own book covers for our 50 word stories. The book covers were very detailed and good.

On Wednesday it was “Sports Day”. Everyone in the school took part. We went round stations like the football station. We all took part in the races at the end. We all enjoyed taking part in Sports Day!  The winning house was Champfluerie.

Mr Ritchie entered a draw for the National Museum of Scotland following our class visit. All the schools were put into a draw and our class WON! To make it fair we pulled lollypop sticks and some people got chosen. The prizes were things like, Egyptian artefacts, models, magnets, rubbers and pencils.

We are also finished our class novel “Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” we really enjoyed it.

By Mr Ritchie and all the “tiggerrific” P4/5s
