We are poets and we didn't know it!!

P5 have been enjoying lots of poetry this term. We have been exploring different styles of poetry. As part of our study we wrote similes to describe ourselves and then rearranged the similes in the shape of ourselves. Can you spot who’s who?

 

Learning about length!

 
 
 
 
 
 

P5 have been learning about 2D shapes.

We have been learning about 2D shapes. We can name and describe 2D shapes. We then created 2D shape characters that are wanted by the authorities! We created some sharp characters... or should we say vertices? 🤔😉

 

Mrs Stewart is shown how it's done! ;)

We have been learning about mummification. We conducted a science experiment to compare what happens to mummified tomatoes and those not mummified.

We had to make predictions about what might happen and ensure that it was a fair test.

 

 

Our Very Own 'River Nile' in P5

 
 

We are learning about how the River Nile was so important to the Ancient Egyptians. We have been busy researching facts about the River Nile to display beside our model river in P5.

We grew real grass for our model to represent the 'Black Land' alongside the River Nile. It's great fun watching it grow. We love watering it and trimming it .

Did you know the River Nile is the longest river in the world?
