In maths this week we have been learning about and working on decimals. We have been adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals including working with negative numbers. We have been working on rounding to the nearest whole number, tenth and hundredth.
We have also started doing ‘Number of the Day’ where each day we put a new number up and we have to do different mental arithmetic related to the number. Our numbers this week have had one or two decimal places.
In literacy this week, we did a Gaelic written piece about our hopes and wishes for the year ahead. We also completed a book review of Wonder in English.
This week, during our Friday ‘Skills for Life, Work and Creativity’ session, we had a group working on making a moving carriage with an axle which will work on a zip line, a group creating a volcano, a group working with clay to make a scene about endangered animals and many more exiting projects on the go! We also have a team in training for the cross country running festival!
