Welcome to Primary 4/5 
Week 12 in our 'Home Learning' journey. 
When we first heard about schools maybe closing due to Covid 19 I never thought it could be for 12 weeks. It is quite sad that we have reached our last week of P4/5 and the last time I will probably be teaching you all.  
Hopefully I will see you about and all the best to Mr Clarke who will be covering my maternity leave.  
Have a great Summer, make lots of special memories and get a good rest. 
Mrs Burton  
Remember If you are finding anything tricky, get an adult to send an email and I will try to help you out as best I can. 
Remember to keep all books/booklets and projects together. I will collect these when we return to school. 
Many Thanks, Mrs Burton.

Week 1 
This week you have been out hunting! Hopefully you have found lots of creepy crawlies!! Can't say I enjoyed this part!! We found lots of Woodlice under pots and far too many flies (annoying me in the house!!). We didn't find very many worms, we thought maybe the ground was too dry after the hot spell of weather and they were maybe deeper down into the soil. We also saw two huge bees and some small wasp like creatures. No butterflies this week.  
What did you find? 
Send some photos of you on your hunt or the Bug Hotel that you have started to crreate. You may want to add to this over the next few weeks. 
Week 2 
This week you were closely observing minibeasts. You were to choose one and do some extra research. I would love to see your factfiles. The craft activity was to design and create a minibeast. You could use different materials. What does your's look like?  
This Minibeast is a 'Gingo'. 
Practical Numeracy 
Primary 5 were investigating the properties of cubes this week. They had to first predict which nets would form a cube and then test out each net.  
As a challenge they were tasked with creating a box with a lid that could open and close.  
Super concentration! 
Well Done!! 
Challenge completed!

Heidi has written a great report on John Logie Baird. She did type it up but unfortuantely the format is not compatible with our website. Fab work!!! --------------------------------->>>

Well done to Alfie. He has put his Ict and research skils to great use and produced a presentation to be very proud of!!

Journey of a Product 
** Through shared planning for our topic the children decided on a product. We thought crisps would be an interesting journey to follow.** 
-> using crisps (or different product that you might prefer) tell us about its journey. You could draw pictures and annotate, make a keynote/powerpoint, create an Ebook using book creator, make a poster, have somebody video a presentation..... you decide! 
This project will take longer than the other activities. Spread it out over two weeks. I look forward to seeing the finished pieces!! 
Ethan has created an amazing PowerPoint presentation following the journey of crisps. Really well done!! 
Super ICT skills Zack and great research. I can't choose my favourite flavour! 
Fabulous work Ruby!! I like how you have chosen to present your reseach as a set of instructions in a powerpoint presentation. 
I think Rosie's poster showing the Journey of crisps is amzing. Would you agree? 
Her Mummy helped her to shrink real crisps packets in the oven and she then decorated her poster with them. I'm guessing eating all those crisps was the best bit!! --------------->
