P2 Outdoor Fractions

P2 took advantage of the sun this week and did our fractions work outside in the playground. We had to work cooperatively with our partners to make our fraction dice then we used these to play a game call ‘Roll a Fraction.’ The winner was the person who got 5 correct first.  Although the wind kept blowing our dice away, we still had lots of fun!

P2 Magic Measuring

The boys and girls in Primary 2 have been busy measuring this week by making potions in groups and pretending to be builders and architects by calculating the length of objects. We have also been comparing weight and length by investigating whether something is heavier or lighter and longer or shorter with practical activities.

We really enjoyed making a mixture of love potions, stretchy potions and invisibility potions 🧪 🧫 

Sumdog Superstars

A massive WELL DONE to Advik and Aashmi who came in the top 10 students in the Edinburgh Sumdog Contest last week. Fantastic!

Our P2 class also came 14th overall. A big well done to all the other successful pupils and classes from Dalry who performed brilliantly #teamdalry

(Sumdog is a maths website used by schools all over the world. Your child has an account and can use it at home as well. It adapts as they learn so only help with questions not answers or you’ll end up doing S3 maths)

P3a Stepping Stones

P3a have been having fun practising their times tables with stepping stones.  They made their own paper stones and numbered them.  They can choose which times table they are working on to achieve their own goals.  They are encouraged to challenge themselves by practising going backwards, mixing the stones up in a random order or beating their own time.  Pupils were also asked to make their own set for homework to allow them to have fun with maths at home.

P3b Get the Measure of Measurements

P3 have been doing a lot of measuring lately. They were learning to measure using standard and non- standard units.

Then they were learning how to weigh objects using a variety of scales and estimating what objects were heavier or lighter.
