Weekly Report P5-7

We have been writing about Little Red Riding Hood with the Writing Rainbow help us do the structure of our story. The Writing Rainbow is a helpful tool to help us do better in our writing. 

We are doing fitness and athletics in P.E  

We did gardening last week. We were picking the vegetables. We can only garden every fortnight because we share our time with the P 1-4 

We are also doing our topic which is the RSPB Wild Challenge.In our table groups, we each took on a different challenge to get us one step closer to the Bronze Award for our schoo

P5-7 Weekly Report

This week has been filled with lots of work, fun and excitement. 

P5-7 have been doing a RSPB Wild challenge. We have started doing the activities.We haven’t finished the activities, but we are nearly there! 

This week Charlie from P6 did his second part of his walk for his mum Eileen and is raising money for the RNLI lifeboat station in Broughty Ferry. Charlie raised over £2000 for the lifeboats. 

Since lock down not many people have been weeding and planting in our school garden. So, we are doing gardening every fortnight, we take turns with primary 1-4.

We’re BACK !

It’s Friday of our first full week back, and we thought we’d ask some of our p5-7 learners how it’s been….

‘We’ve been learning about the writing rainbow and how it helps us improve our writing’

‘We have been doing a lot of maths, but it’s mainly been refreshing our minds and occasionally some new stuff. It was a bit hard at the start but now we’re getting back into the routine, we’re getting more confident’

‘We’re not allowed to touch each others stationery and we’re not allowed to go close to the teacher over 15 minutes. It makes things a bit harder and frustrating, but we’ll get used to the routine’

‘We have been making Time-Capsules about when we were at home during lockdown. This made us think about all the good things about lockdown even though it seemed bad’

‘ We are making a book about what we did during lockdown and we wrote about our special place, special person and an object that was important to us. It’s weird that it’ll be opened when we are all grandparents!’

‘In gym, we can’t do much that includes equipment like balls and tennis racquets. It’s still good though  because we’re out stretching our legs, doing athletics and fitness’

‘It’s good to be back at school with our teachers and friends and learning together’

Charlie’s Walk 2020

On Sunday 22nd of June, Charlie from P5 set off for his 3rd annual fundraising walk in memory of his mum, Eileen.

This year, Charlie was raising money for the RNLI in memory of the crew of the RNLI Lifeboat Mona which capsized on the 8th of December, 1959, losing all lives onboard. You can read more information about the disaster here

Charlie set off at 8am on a very dreich morning, from the RNLI Lifeboat Station in Broughty Ferry, walking the first part with some of the current RNLI volunteers. He and his dad walked through a pretty miserable day, covering half of the 55 mile route from Broughty Ferry to Queensferry. He will complete the second half later in the year – hopefully in better weather !

We are VERY proud of you, Charlie, and #TeamAuchterhouse supports you all the way !

Virtual Sports Day, June 2020

Virtual Sports Day!

On Friday the 5th of June, 2020, we had our Virtual Sports Day !

Our learners chose activities to do at home, ranging from the traditional to the very creative ! Our school staff also set challenges and all of these activities earned points for our School Houses – Eassie, Glamis and Newtyle !

MS Teams and Dojo were flooded with wonderful pictures and videos of fun action, and the teachers were kept very busy calculating scores and points !


At 2pm, Mrs Cowper announced the winning house for 2020….


Well done, everyone !
