This year p6/7 are going to be doing an Endeavour project.  An Endeavour project is when you chose a topic that your interested in and do a longer version of a personal topic on it.  You have from October till the end of June to complete it.  Last year everyone picked something slightly different and worked to aim their personal goal everyday.

The different projects in our class are Cooking food from around the world, Japan, Sewing a quilt, Survival skills, Chicken farm, Celebration cakes, Volcanoes, Beauty therapy, Horse riding instructor, Writing a book, Climate change, Growing Vegetables, Puppets, Video games, Fitness and diet, Traditional singing and Exploration survival.

Everyday you have to fill out  record sheet to record everything you’ve done and everything you need to do.

Primary 5 Learning

Primary 5 have been doing a lot of maths in fact I think they are math experts, they have been doing a lot of work on their times tables and place value.  For homework they have been getting sudoku for fun. In Spelling they have been doing the normal Nelson spelling textbook(plurals).   For PE they have had Brandon Freeman in as a sports ambassador from High School to teach different skills and basketball. They have had Mrs Macdonald in for gaelic to teach numbers up to 20 and items in the class room. For art they had Mrs Onions who tought them how to change a spring picture into a autumn picture.For Music most of them have taken up an musical instrument and received them today.  Their class room has now became a secret agent HQ as they have designed their own gadgets and wrote about them.

We have been learning about the vikings. We found out our viking names, my one was Robstaf the Wise. The vikings were great sailors.  The Vikings came from Denmark, Sweden and Norway and they made their clothes from wool and leather fron animals.  They also washed their clothes in cow pee!


Welcome Back Everybody!

Hope everyone has had a great holiday and is settling down to the new term in school. We have already hosted the Islay book festival, where we were visited by author Ruth Rendell! We also enjoyed some interesting talks by children’s authors Allan Burnett, John Fardell and Cathy Macphail. Thanks to the book festival organisers for providing us with such great events.
Coming up this term is a visit from Kilmartin Museum to discover all things Viking, and a Gaelic awareness day on the 30th September. Keep in touch to find out what the pupils think.

We are learning all about the circus. We have been learning tricks like balancing, juggling and hula hooping! It has been good fun. By Finlay

We have been learning about the jobs people do in the circus like the ring master, juggler, tight rope walker, trainer, office workers and acrobat. By Bronagh, Ronan, Jasmine, Kaya, Mirren and Struan

We have been thinking about the skills people doing these jobs need. The ring master needs to be able to speak out loud and he can’t be nervous. He must be organised. By Katie

A juggler has to be good at throwing and catching. By Natalie

A tight rope walker has to be good at balancing and he has to be careful not to fall. By Murray
