P5/6 Update
Yet another busy week has flown by in P5/6. Whilst I have not been in school this week, Miss Williams has been doing a fabulous job teaching the class.  She has commented on just how hard they have been working on their learning. We have been keeping in regular contact and continuing to plan collaboratively.  I have also enjoyed seeing the work that the children have been sharing on Seesaw.
The week started off very enthusiastically with the class working on their Digital Literacy skills. The theme of this week’s photography challenge was capturing action. I hope you enjoyed seeing their efforts on Seesaw.
In Art, the class have been looking at the artist Edvard Munch and in particular his famous painting ‘The Scream of Nature’, more often just known as ‘The Scream’. We will share our examples on Seesaw as we finish them. 
In Numeracy, the class has also worked very hard on developing their skills on multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000. This links closely to place value, which we have just finished, and helps develop a stronger understanding of the connection to dividing by 10,100 and 1000.
In our science-based context for learning, Earth’s Materials, the class have started to look at the process of how rock is extracted from the ground for use in construction. Many were surprised at the process and just how destructive it was to the environment – a subject that we will return to again over the next few weeks.
Finally, in RME, the class have been looking at places of worship for Buddhists. They have looked at the Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre which is near Eskdalemuir in Scotland. A wonderful place to visit if you ever get an opportunity.
Miss Williams and I hope that you all have a relaxing and safe weekend.

Mr Morgan
