Week Beginning 18th October 2021
The children in the ELC have been developing their colour mixing and fine motor skills. They are using small syringes and coloured water to investigate and explore colours. The children are using problem solving strategies and are sharing their learning with each other.
P1 have been exploring money and coins this week. The children worked together to organise and sort the coins by colour and size. Looking forward to see where our learning takes us!
P3/4A and P3/4B
We have been busy in P3 / 4 learning to write clear instructions. We were inspired by Amelia Earhart who was the first woman to fly solo over the Atlantic to build our own paper aeroplanes. We carefully followed a set of instructions to build the aeroplanes then wrote out our own. It was great fun particularly when we flew our paper aeroplanes to see who’s could go the furthest.
P5F and P5G
Primary 5 had great time during their Roman Week at the end of term. They worked collaboratively to research and present one chosen aspect of Ancient Rome, created mosaic vases and soldiers and wrote wonderful, descriptive gladiator stories. You will be able to see all of their excellent work on display in the corridor very soon. Their highlight of the week was definitely coming to school dressed in togas or as Roman emperors and soldiers.
As part of our ‘Celebrating Difference’ project in class, we have been learning about some of the challenges people face when living with disabilities. We have listened to people living with chronic illnesses, visual/hearing impairments, those living with hidden disabilities and those people who may use a wheelchair to get around. We have been hugely impressed by people’s resilience and positivity when coping with challenges as they go about their daily lives. We know how important it is to accept and include people no matter how ‘differently abled’ they may be.
This week in Primary 7 we have been looking at different types of political systems such as communism, democracy and dictatorships. We even trialled some of these systems out in class and had some fantastic discussions about the advantages and disadvantages of each system. Well done Primary 7!
