P2/3L had a great time during Maths Week. Scroll down to see what we got up to…
We went on a maths hunt, counting objects and finding and making shapes in our playground.
We buddied up with P6N/P who invented some cool maths games for us to play with them.
We even practised sequencing and decoding patterns through dance when we did maths with our feet!
P2/3L have had a busy term so far, full of drama and excitement…
Two aliens invaded our classroom! It turns out they want to learn all about our local area which happens to be our topic for this term.
We took them on a tour of our playground and showed them our amazing views – we even spotted some cows in a field.
They came on a walk with us too. We saw a postman delivering letters. Then we went down the railway line where we picked some brambles.
We saw some graffiti and a pile of feathers and wondered what had happened to the chick…
All pupils took part in Science Day on Wednesday 10th May and had a fun filled day of Science related activities. P3/4, P4 and P5M had a visitor from STEM who talked to them about the Human Body. Hayley Sherrard from SSERC worked with P7 and P5S on pneumatics and hyraulics. They had so much fun learning about how they work and using this to create their own aliens.
P6D worked with Hayley to learn about SMART materials. This was really interesting. P7P were in Potions Class with Mrs Murphy and Mrs Dickson from Lornshill Academy after break where they worked in pairs to make different potions using different liquids. They learned about what happens when chemical reactions take place.
All children had a great day and many said they would love to have Science days more often.
P5S, 6D and 7P have been learning about the Body this term. They have worked really hard developing a number of skills to find out about the heart, lungs, brain, skeleton and the development of babies. It has been really interesting. They showcased all their hard work at the Body Exhibition yesterday afternoon where pupils from each class became tour guides to show other pupils in the school what they had been learning. It was a huge success.
Primary 7 are going to Dalguise next week. Parents have had the information they need home but if there is anything anyone would like to ask please contact Miss Price via Class Dojo or the school office.
Pupils have to be at school on Wednesday at 9.45am. The bus will leave at approximately 10.20am.
They are welcome to come in at school at 9am and they can put their luggage in the Community Lounge.
Not long to go now!
