P5B get debating

As part of our learning about the Highland Clearances P5B took part in a debate. The class split into 3 groups: land owners, crofters and business owners from Edinburgh and Glasgow. Everyone worked really well in their groups, deciding their 3 strongest arguments for the debate.

We then began the debate. Each group articulated their points brilliants and everyone was very engaged.

Our time keeper made sure everyone had the same amount of time to make their point.

It was then time for our group from the cities to ask questions to each group.

Excellent debating skills, well done!

Terrific Times Tables

We have been focusing on learning and consolidating our knowledge of the times tables in maths. On Thursday we visited a mixture of rotations to support our learning, and this morning we battled against Batman to see if we could answer lots of multiplication questions within 5 minutes, I’ve never seen the class so focused! Great job everyone and keep practising.
