In Primary 5 we have continued reading our novel The Boy at the Back of the Class.  This week we learned that the new boy, Ahmmet is a Syrian refugee who speaks Kurdish.

We have also met a new character called Amal.  She is a giant puppet who is making the journey from Syria to Britain and we are going to be researching the countries she will be visiting.  This week we researched facts about Turkey and made our own Iznik patterns.

We are working on recount in writing and this week we have started writing about Ahmmet’s first day at school.

In maths we have been working on place value and angles.

This week we took part in a live reading lesson on teams.  It was about prediction and  led by  Mrs Cochrane.  We took part with all the other P4 and 5 classes in the Deans cluster.

Homework grids have been put on teams and our first homework is due to be completed by Friday 17th September.  Please encourage your child to add homework to the files section of the homework channel or take photographs and add this to the chat.  Homework jotters are also available for anyone who needs them.

Have a lovely week

Mrs Jamieson and Miss Munroe
