Primary 6M have settled back into school and have been getting to know Ms McKay. We have been working on our novel study ‘The Girl of Ink and Stars’ by Kiran Milllwood Hargrave (a new children’s author). It is about an adventurous young girl who dreams of exploring the island Joya that she lives on. It is a tale of mystery and myth and finding out who we can be when we face our fears.
In numeracy we are learning about place value and using large numbers in real life contexts. We are also discussing and investigating the properties of 2D shapes and 3D objects, nets and angles.
We have been exploring plant life and using different media in art to create pictures of flowers and plants.
To develop our health and wellbeing we have been focussing on the topic resilience and have been playing invasion games and badminton. We are looking forward to our swimming next week.
