P1/2 coastal trips

This term we have visited three different coastal sites to learn about habitats and the different creatures that live there.  We identified different shells and learned about what lived in each.  We began to learn about food chains and sort what we have found into living, non-living and never lived. We were really lucky to … Continue reading P1/2 coastal trips

Buidheann Eco

Tha clas G4-7 ag obair gu trang airson ar t-seachdamh bratach Eco.

Le Pippa Hannett G5– Thòisich an clas againn a’ dol timcheall an raon-cluiche agus a’ faighinn a-mach an àireamh de sgudal a tha anns an raon-cluiche. As dèidh sin, smaoinich sinn air na tha sinn dol a dhèanamh airson an sgoil agus sgudal a’ cumail sgiobalta. Rinn sinn foirm air Google Forms airson clas 5-7 gus na beachdan aca fhaighinn. Rinn sin grafan a tha a’ sealltainn ar rannsachadh airson matamataig. Chan eil poileasaidh againn airson sgudal agus feumaidh sinn fear cruthachadh.

 

Ag Ionnsachadh mu Costa na Mara ann an Ile/ P5/6/7 Learn about Islay’s Coast

This term the children in P5/6/7  along with G4-7 have been learning about ‘Islay’s Coast’ and the various types of rocks that surround the coastline.  The children were able to identify sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks as well as describe their characteristics and uses.

Mr David Webster, a geologist, attended a trip to Bowmore Battery with the children where the children took part in different activities to deepen their knowledge and understanding.

They were able to make volcanic eruptions as well as create a timeline showing the age of different rocks.  The children were then set a challenge to

create the map of Islay using natural resources.  They were then asked to place the various rocks in the places they can be found on Islay. 

A great day was had by all!

 

P3/4 and G1-3 Coastal Trips

As part of The Year of the Coast P3/4 and G1-3 have teamed up to learn all about Islay’s Coast.  We visited 4 different coastlines on Islay where we had lots of fun rock-pooling, den building, making loose parts art and making smores on the Kelly Kettles.

National Numeracy Day

On the 19th May P5/6/7 spent the day applying their numeracy skills and learning new strategies to support them with their learning.

The children practiced their problem solving skills and used strategies such as trial and improvement as well as working backwards to help them solve the challenges that were set.

In the afternoon they took their maths outdoors. They measured the perimeter and area of the football pitch, went on a mathematical  fractions scavenger hunt and displayed data through pie charts and bar graphs using natural resources.

 

P3/4 Measure

P3/4 have been learning about estimating and measuring in metres and centimetres. We have had lots of fun in class and in our grounds doing lots of measuring.

 

World Book Day 2021

Lots of learning and fun took place as we celebrated World Book Day in lots of different ways.

Primary 1 and 2 made their own ‘tattie characters’,  these were inspired by characters from our favourite books. This supported us in talking about different aspects of characterisation.

 

 

 

 

 

G1-2 and P1 and 2 had fun completing the World Book Day scavenger hunts, this was a great chance for us to explore a wide range of books and talk about books that are familiar to us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Primary 3, and 4 used the AR MAKR app to make a story map for World Book Day! They had great fun exploring the app for the first time and loved getting outdoors too!
