We have had a really busy week in Primary 5/6. The Primary 5’s had a great time taking part in the Handball festival at Linlithgow Academy on Tuesday where they were competed against other local schools.
On Wednesday the Primary 5’s listened to a very interesting presentation by Mr Woodhouse about the Forth Bridges. It provided us with lots of information to help us on our trip to the Bridges on Thursday with Mr. Logan and the rest of Primary 5.
In science we planned our spaghetti bridge challenge and next week will be building them.
The Primary 6’s have missed their classmates this week however they have also been very busy with Fame! As the week progressed we had Mrs Bell helping us with some of our songs, Mrs Gordon was teaching us some new dances and we are beginning to look at what is happening on the stage throughout each scene.
We are continuing to look at Decimals and in particular ordering decimals with one and two decimal places. We found this tricky at first but with more practise and exploring different games we are beginning to feel more confident.
In maths we were exploring types of angles and using a protractor to draw angles. We will be reinforcing this next week.
In music we are continuing to learn to play the recorder. We are doing playing and reading from the stave, the notes G,B A high C. We are then using these playing skills to improvise 4 ”beat fills “ in a simple jazz piece.
Learning through play in the upper school
Have a good weekend from Primary 5/6, Mrs McVay and Mrs Tulloch
