In Literacy we were doing “Which one doesn’t belong” on the iPad. We had a picture of 4 bananas and we had pick which on didn’t belong. I picked the old one because the other ones were yellow and the old one was brown. I enjoyed doing this because it was fun and I got to write about why I picked the one I did.
In P.E. I did Netball. We were learning chest and shoulder passing and we were learning the best way to catch the ball. I liked doing the passing as I found it quite easy because I had done it before. After doing the passing we played a game of netball which was really fun. I am looking forward to doing more netball next week.
We were making a game icon on the iPad and we were making it on Sketches School. It was for when
we are older because we might have to do one. My one had 10 games and on the picture there was a sun and the sky. The name of my app is 10 games in 1. I enjoyed making the icon, it was fun.
For spelling this week we had to write 5 sentences with our spelling words in them. I found I can do this quite easily because we have been doing this for a while. We had our spelling test on Thursday and I did well in it. I think writing the sentences helped me to remember.
In PE on Wednesday we done some athletics practicing for a competition. It was long jumps ,an assault course. I really enjoyed because it was a lot of fun. I managed to jumped quite in the long jump and I was impressed with myself.
Over the past few weeks we have been doing stuff about homelessness and we have done presentations in groups to try raise money for the homeless charity’s. Today we are showing them to the class. I found this interesting.
This week we were editing our diaries so that we can make them better. We used VCOP which stands for vocabulary, connectives, openers and punctuation. On my writing I had to change 3 or 4 things and now it sound even better.
This week we have been playing Sumdog for maths. My favourite game is the rollercoaster ride.
We went outside where we played for a bit in the woodland area. Then we did Maths in the woodland area. It was like a tic tac toe but we did it as a maths version. We had to put numbers in the grid and get the line to add up to 15 or 19. The person who finished the sum was the winner.
Y.M.I – Music
We did music and we learned how to mash the different sounds like the piano, the bass guitar and the drums. We tried to hear one of the sounds like the bass guitar 🎸 over the others. It was kind of hard because it had been turned down so it was difficult to hear over the other instruments. I think this music was fun to do and it’s so fun 🤩
We were adding up money during maths this week. We were also taking part in the Scottish Sumdog contest which meant we we had to play maths games on Sumdog to get more points. I played junk pile on Sumdog and you need to stack up pieces of junk to win and get more points. You get the junk by answering maths questions.
We were doing diary writing about little red riding hood and the big bad wolf. I was writing a diary pretending to be the wood cutter, others choose different characters. We had to say how they saw what happened in the story. I found it ok to write. After we wrote it we had to look at the success criteria and see if there were bits to uplevel. We did a redraft.

In P.E we have been learning to play Rugby this week we were learning how to do back passes. I found it easy and I I enjoyed it.
This week we were mixing our music tracks to get the right level of volume for each instrument.
This is something new I’ve been learning and I am enjoying it.
The Night Bus Hero
This week we read more of our class novel. I am enjoying it because Hector is Bad and it’s fun to hear what he does. I think the police are going to find him and he will get in trouble. We still don’t know who the Night Bus Hero is.
In Maths we were doing rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. Rounding is my favourite subject in maths because I find it fun.
We were also doing our basic Maths test this week. This is a test we do to see how we are with our Maths and if we have moved up to the next level. We get 2 minutes to finish 30 Maths questions.

On Tuesday we continued making some music on an app called GarageBand. We made tracks including different instruments. I liked using the rock guitar the most.
We used a new noise meter in class this week which uses bouncy balls or emojis. When it is too loud in class the balls or emojis bounce too high to let you know you need to be quieter.
Night Bus hero
We are doing a class novel called “The Night Bus Hero”. In the story there is a kid called Hector who is a bully. He is really mean and naughty. This week we heard that he pushed an old homeless man’s trolley in to the lake.
On Thursday we were treated to a chance of helping our woodland. Most of the class enjoyed this task, we had a lot of fun, we also took part in some fun games outside. Our class got to do this with Mrs A.
On some Wednesday’s we get to use “the red box” which is a comprehension practice, everyone has a different level like yellow, red, orange, pink, green (etc.). There are different cards with questions and paragraphs to read and you have to read carefully to know the answers to the questions.
On Tuesdays we have French with Mr. Edmond. So far in French we have been learning greetings, numbers and how to spell them. We get to play a lot of games and quizzes and it is lots of fun!
