The ensemble was amazing!
What a wonderful evening!🎶It was great to see so many of you there. Everyone did so well and what a super sound P4/5 made. I think we will most definitely be seeing more of them in the future!🎶
Well do to Chiara who is pupil of the week in P4/5. Her handwriting is always exceptionally neat. Keep up the good work!
to make the next 10,100 or 1000. We went over many examples of adding on today. Everyone is understanding more fully how to do it and were able to explain how to work out a question on the board.
One of the maths activities this week is finding out how many to add on to a given number to make 100. Children have been given varying amounts of questions to do however the focus of this activity is to make individuals more confident of basic number bonds. The quicker children can recall number facts, the easier they will find more advanced work.
P4 have been focussing on what to add to a number to make the next 10 for example 47+_=50. Knowing that 7+3=10, makes the process much faster. They have also been working out how many to add on to make 100 for example 53+_=100. They have been using different strategies to find out the answer. Two main ways to do this is either work out that 3+7=10 which would take the number up to 60 and then work out how many 10s need to be added on to make 100 or to add on however many 10s first and then work out the units.
P5 have been working on what to add to a number to make 100 but they have also been extending this to work within 1000. An example of this is 453+_=1000. The same principles used in adding on to make 100 should be used. They can either add on the 100s until they get to 953 and then add on the 10s until they get to 993 and then add on the units to make 1000. It does not matter what order these steps are carried out in.
We will be making this a focus for our learning over the next while.
I am delighted that so many of the class will be taking part in the Spring Concert on Thursday. We were practising some of the songs today and it was sounding really good. Tickets can be bought from the school or at the door on the night. It starts at 7.00pm and children should wear formal uniform. It is going to be a very joyful evening!🎶
P5 were working on 'et' endings. They had to use the key words to find out the answers to clues and they also had to indentify the word which had a different letter pattern in it.
P4 were working on words that had the 'oi' sound in them but there were two different ways the sound could be made - either 'oi' as in coin or 'oy' as in toy.
We had a good first week back at the Waterfront. This swimming block will run until Monday 30th March.
Welcome back, hope all of the pupils had a well rested week off and are raring to go!
