Primary 6 are continuing to work hard.

We have just  finished our mini-topic about Ancient Greece. We listened to, and read, a variety of Greek myths, including Medusa and Icarus. The paintings of Medusa are brilliant, with green snakes writhing on her head! We researched the origin of the Olympics and learned that some of the events are still included in the Olympics today. We even learned to write numbers using the Ancient Greek number system. It has been a very enjoyable short topic.

Our next topic is going to be about Scottish inventors. As a class we spoke about what we want to learn. Some of the ideas include researching who the main inventors are and what they made and even becoming inventors ourselves! It should be an interesting topic too.

In Numeracy  we are learning how to round numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000 and in Mathematics we are continuing our work on measuring angles.

This week homework has been issued. This year it will be issued through TEAMS. If your child needs a paper copy of the homework please let us know. There is a maths, spelling and reading activity to complete. The work will be uploaded to TEAMS on Monday and should be completed by Friday.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
