Hello World! This blog now belongs to a new class at Carronshore – Primary 5S/V! We will be posting on here regularly to let you all know what we have been getting up to in class this session.
We thought we’d start of by introducing you to some of our favourite Precious Possessions. We’ve been writing about them in class and we’ve put some of them on here for you to have a look at. Please leave us a comment to let us know what you think
It was very wet and windy this morning, but last week the sun was shining! We decided to go outdoors for our maths lesson. We all had a clipboard and worksheets with questions about things we could see in the playground. Everyone in the class really enjoyed maths that day and we learned loads too!
Here is a video we made to remind us about the great time we all had learning outside. please leave a comment to let us know what you think.
Every January we celebrate Scottish Poetry. This year Primary 3 learned the poem ‘A Dug, A Dug’ by Bill Keys.
We performed it with a partner and we’ve chosen three recitals to share with you on here. It was hard to choose which ones to put on! Let us know what you think of them.
The first one is by Beau and Casey-Jo
Next is the recital by Caitlin and Katie.
Finally, here’s one by Ross and Stuart.
Today we all made animations.
Here’s what we did:
In pairs, we came up with an idea for a story based on ‘kindness’
We made a rough plan of what our story was going to be about in our Busy Books
We went along to the computer suite and made our animation scenes
In class we all shared what we had made and had a discussion about how we could tell our stories in more detail
Working individually, we wrote what happened in each scene
We got together again with our partner and decided what bits we would use to narrate our stories
We recorded our stories on the class microphone
The audio recordings were added to the animation videos in Windows Movie Maker
We then uploaded the finished animation videos to our school YouTube channel
Have a look at some of them here and let us know what you think!
We hope that everyone who visits our blog has a very lovely Christmas! Today we joined up with Primary 4D and sang ‘Away in a Manger’. Ross, Casey-Jo, Katie and Aaron played the Bell Plates while we were singing. We added our singing to some of our Winter Pictures we’ve been colouring in class.
Have a look below …… and we’ll see you all again in 2014!!
Yesterday in class we made Christmas table decorations. Julie came along to Carronshore primary School to show us how to make them.
We made one each and today we are going to take them home so that our families can put them on the table and we can admire them when we are having our Christmas dinner!
Sophie, Ross, James G and Isobel are going to tell you the step by step instructions for how to make them.
First we were all given an Oasis block
Then we all got a straws and we had to cut them into 4 pieces
After that we were all given 4 sweets (ours were from a big Roses tin)
Next we twisted the sweet wrappers and sellotaped it onto the straws before we stuck the straws into the Oasis block
After that we were given 8 pieces of gold coloured tissue paper and we put 2 of them around each sweet
Then we were each given a large piece of Christmas paper and a coloured ribbon and we tied it around the outside
Finally we stuck on a star and added a strip of red tinsel
We are very proud of our table decorations. Written by Ross, James G, Isobel and Sophie.
Here are some more of our Autobiographies we’ve been writing in class.
You can also see them in our individual ePortfolio blogs.
For homework we were asked to find out about our past. We all interviewed our mums and dads to find out about our life before we started school. We also brought in some photographs of important events (if we had them). We used the information to write our Autobiographies.
Here’s what we did:
We added the answers to our questions to Powerpoint slides
We inserted our photographs of the events (if we didn’t have photographs, we looked for clipart images to use)
We used a big font for the writing to make it stand out
We saved the individual slides as jpegs
We added all our individual jpegs to Windows Movie Maker
We edited the timings to make sure that the writing in the jpegs was there long enough to be read
We even added some music so that people can listen to it as they watch our autobiography movies
Have a look at some of them here and let us know what you think. They’re also going to be appearing on our individual ePortfolio blogs.
We hope you like them!
Ben D’s Autobiography
James G’s Autobiography
Lots more Autobiographies to come, soon!!
In class, we thought it would be a nice idea to use our grammar lesson to help us write Winter Poems. Here’s what we did:
We thought up one thing that we see, hear and smell in winter (nouns)
Next, we added two ‘WoW’ words (adjectives) to describe them
Finally, we thought up three words to describe our feelings about winter
We went along to the computer room and wrote our poems in a Microsoft Publisher template
We decorated a big ‘W’ with clipart at the start of the poem
We saved the publisher documents as jpegs
We uploaded the jpegs to Windows Movie Maker and added some nice Christmas music
