P5/6 will be learning with Miss Rukin on a Wednesday afternoon.
Today, they started a new topic on China! We learnt some Mandarin phrases and learnt a very well known song... Can you guess what it is? We performed it to P1-2 and P3-4.
This afternoon we started our bed science topic on Friction. We discussed forces and made up a mind map showing what we discovered. We then went on to talk about measuring force and we used Newton Meters to measure various forces.
The children have been given their homework for the week. I am aware that many of the pupils have got various after school activities so they can do the work on whatever night suits them as long as it is all handed in by Friday. They can hand any part in before that for me to mark and return to them. The children will be tested on these 8 words on Friday.
A little reminder that the class are going skiing on Monday. Please wear, trip uniform and bring gloves, suitable clothing and a packed lunch.
Every Friday the class will be going down to Largs for gymnastics. The children will be having a late lunch so please either bring a packed lunch or some money to buy from Mrs Parkinson.
Today the children tried a variety of apparatus.
