RedBall Cricket

Today we had our first cricket session. We will be learning the skills needed to help us during a competition in a few weeks time!

Children’s parliament

We were visited today by the Children’s Parliament where the children learned about our basic rights and needs from when we are in the womb to age 12. A lot were the same but some differ with the ages we become. We learned about Human Dignity and made a “dignomotor” using our plans we made in our groups.

Bridge Construction

Primary 5 had a fantastic morning learning about bridges and construction. They listened very well to instructions and dressed as construction workers, got to build a bridge and get over it! They had some very heavy lifting and had to correctly join steel ropes to the walkway. They also had to work out which connections and screws to use!

Prayer Space

The children were very lucky to have some American visitors today who provided them with a Prayer Space. The children got private messages from God and could share their worries, troubles and thoughts silently or out loud. A lot of children say they felt better for sharing their problems.

World Book Day 2019

World Book Day today has the children dressed in either pyjamas or their favourite character. We participated in a book swap in the library which was great fun. The children were discussing which books they thought would be suitable for each other. In the afternoon, we went to visit our buddy class in Primary 2 to read with them. It was a lovely end to the day.

Rhymes across Languages

We had a visitor today who entered the class speaking in German! There were a few confused faces for sure. The children were read a German poem and challenged to decode what it meant in English. They were quite surprised at how much German words were similar to English. The children then created words onto a mind map which rhymed with ‘quack’ in their groups to help them write their own version of the poem. All children managed to complete a short poem and read these out at the end to their classmates. They were so proud of their work and so they should be! The learning opportunities using different languages are endless! Well done Primary 5.


All the Primary 5 pupils are working together on their topic on Jacobite’s. Currently making cut outs of a Red Coat and Jacobite soldiers. The planning stage saw each group drawing around a pupil and others designing and choosing colours. Cant wait to see the finished results!

Chinese new year!

The children were visited today by our mandarin teacher and others who helped us learn about Chinese New Year allowed us to try some traditional games from China. The strings were a huge hit and i am still learning to do the Eiffel Tower! Some of our class can do it so they will have to teach me. Fantastic learning today.

Boom!! Bang!!

Primary 5 invented a new spelling game to practice their spelling words. They wrote their words on the back of the neon shapes and played with others in their spelling groups to try spell their words! Look out for the boom or bang though or you loose your cards!

Active Spelling

We were outside yesterday using chalk to write our spelling words in the playground. Active spelling activities engage pupils to learn their words and sounds for their weekly homework. Apologies if pupils returned home a little “chalky!”
