The winter weather has struck, with the result that the road outside school is very icy, which means that we are closed.
Suggested activities for P4-7 pupils: You can choose 3 activities or complete them all.
Writing a review of your reading book so far. Focus on the characters, story, description and the feelings of each main character in your book. For those Reading Anne Frank: please write about how Anne is feeling.
Other reading groups: look over the last section of the book you have read and write 5 comprehension questions. Bring these questions into class so that other people in your group can answer them.
If you have supervised access to the internet you could research other books by the same author and write a persuasive paragraph about the story.
Maths: Practice your tables using the hit the button website or try and write all the times tables that you know as fast as you can. Time yourself and see how fast you can get. the more you do the more table blocks you may get!
Set yourself at least ten sums (they can be addition, subtraction, division or multiplication) and try and solve them. Table blocks for the harder sums like multiplication by 6,7,8 & 9 and also for any division sums where you have to carry or have remainders.
Using a ruler Draw a mixture of triangles, rectangles and squares to make a winter scene.
Art: Draw a winter scene involving a forest. You can depict animals in it. Don’t forget Owls.
Remember you can do Studyladder as well – but it only allows 3 activities a day!
Hopefully School will be open tomorrow (December 1st).

On Saturday 9th September Banchory-Devenick Parent Council organised a Teddy Bear’s Picnic in the woods where we hold our regular Forest School sessions. This event was for under 5’s. Mrs Sutherland ran the Forest School session, with help from Miss Rynne. Thank you to everyone who attended and to all those who organised the event.
It stayed sunny.
Bears waiting at the school door.
Blow on your marshmallow to cool it down.
Hunt the bears.
It was great fun!
Janice scanned a pupil’s chest so that we could see what it was like in their body. It came up on the screen and we could see the heart, lungs and all the ribs.
Alec Caravan came to see us today to speak about our bodies. We learned about the heart, lungs and the digestive system. We also learned about the effects of smoking. We saw Harald in the Diversity World theme park via a Spy cam. Harald also sang for us about diversity.
Mrs Sutherland taught P4-7 a variety of painting techniques using their fingers. If you look at these pictures you can see some different styles. So all our cows are different, but they are all Highland Cows.
Mrs Edgar came in to school to do Kodaly with both classes. We followed beats, repeated patterns and drummed along with Uptown Funk.
Primary 4-7 were in the forest and made dens in the forest. We also had Marshmallows cooked on the fire.
We had to work as teams in our to achieve more. Mrs Sutherland told us that Together Everyone Achieves More or simply: Team work!
During 2016-17 we managed to exceed the storage capacity of our site, so we have decided to create a separate site for each term. There will still be pictures, news and learning from both classes in our school.
