P5a and Literacy and Languages Week

Hauld yer wheeist, sit back and read what P5A have been learning this week!

This week has been a braw week in P5A. We have really enjoyed Scots literacy and languages week particularly as we have had the opportunity to learn Scots words. Some of our favourites are drookit, wheeist, haver and fankle. We read ‘Winnie the Pooh’ in Scots and English and compared and contrasted them to find the similarities and differences.

We also had a visit from ‘Mac A Story’ who told us three stories, including one about how St Andrew invented golf. For writing, we wrote a letter to Miss Griffith’s brother in Northern Ireland to explain all about St Andrew’s history, culture and heritage.

During numeracy we worked on our knowledge of negative numbers and practiced counting forwards and backwards in 1s and 2s in a ‘counting choir’. One of our students came up with a brilliant pun and told Miss Griffith ‘I felt negative about that maths session’!!!

For P.E this week we took part in Heartstart and learned about what to do if someone chokes.

We were lucky enough to win Leo the Learning Lion at Huddle this week. We get to bring him everywhere to share in our learning. Next week at Huddle we will sit on the benches and two members of the class will share our learning from the week.

We opened the first door of our Advent kindness calendar today. Each door contains a whole class kindness challenge that we created. Next week we are looking forward to studying The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher.
