Hello to all,
Another busy week in Primary 5.
Our Interdisciplinary Topic for the beginning of term is connected to our novel- There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom. We are reading and discussing it during Reading lessons and completing tasks related to it at other times. The children have been predicting what will happen next and improving their comprehension skills. Some are horrified at how badly behaved Bradley is! We have also created 2 life sized Bradley’s and will be using them to identify good and bad behaviour.
The children have chosen a book to read for enjoyment and it would be appreciated if you could continue to encourage your child to read for enjoyment at home.
In Health we have been looking at the Wellbeing Indicators and how they relate to our life. The children are very good at naming the indicators in the correct order. Ask them if they can do it for you! They have also been discussing what a trusted adult is and identifying 5 who they can speak to.
In PE lessons the children are learning hockey skills. This week they focused on dribbling and controlling the ball with the stick. This is harder than it looks and many children found themselves chasing after their ball! Practice makes perfect though!
Outdoor PE- Monday
Please ensure the children have the correct kit for going outdoors- trainers, trackies/joggers, t-shirt and fleece/hoodie. They can come to school wearing their PE kit but a school jumper must be worn during the day. They can then change into their outdoor jumper when we go outside.
Have a lovely weekend and thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Gilmour, Miss Munro and Mrs Muir
