This term in Primary 5 we have been learning about the Rainforest. We have drawn our own Red Eye Tree frogs and researched different annals that live in the Rainforest. The novel we have been reading in the class is Journey to the River Sea by Iva Ibbotson. The novel is based in the Amazon Rainforest and through our Literacy Circles we have explored and predicted the finer details of the novel.
We had a local artist called Kevin Greig in to show us how to build up colour to create pen drawings of local landmarks, our pieces of work have been displayed on the wall in our classroom.
This week we have been predicting Probability and Chance within Maths. Other areas that we have been focussing on this term are Dividing, measure, co-ordinates and Fractions.
We have really enjoyed Volleyball in PE with Miss Warren, this has been a new sport for many of us but we have learned the skills of digging and volleying in a game.
In Health and Wellbeing we have been investigating the effects that Smoking and Alcohol can have on our bodies.
This year we have been corresponding with our Canadian Pen Pal, we love writing and receiving our letters from them. We have begun to develop a friendship through these letters and are learning about each other’s lives.
In Skills Groups we have been learning about CPR, Planning a Party, the importance of Online Safety and Booking a Holiday.
