Holiday Homework 2019

We’ve had some interesting Holiday Homework in this week: we’ve had stories about holidays, sticker books, Banagrams, Orangutans and this stop animation above.

Happy New Year!

Eels in the Classroom

A week last Friday the P7s and a bonus P5 represented the school and the Eels in the Classroom Project at the Johnstonebridge Community Centre, after school. One of the P7s made a speech about her experience which I have shared below, and which contains an important message. Hannah is dressed as Roald Dahl ‘s Matilda for good measure!

Another Snow Day

School is closed again today. I hope everyone is safe in this cold weather.

Things to do other than destroy your brains with devices or TV:

  • Go out and play in the snow, this may be the most you’ll see in your childhood (make sure you tell whoever is looking after you and are prepared for the weather)
  • Read
  • Write about your day off (any P7s who have written a blog post, and have their password, should write it up on this blog and I’ll post it)
  • Do some iXL maths (see homework link at the side)
  • Do some Spelling City (as above)
  • Find out more about our topic, history: GD Alfred the Great, DS King Canute, EA Edward the Confessor, JF William the Conqueror, MB Henry I, AC Richard I, DN Edward I, ChR Richard III, HM Henry VIII, LO Mary I, AM Elizabeth I, BO James VI & I, HA Charles II, RL Victoria and ON Elizabeth II.
  • Commit all of the dates on the sheet of Kings and Queens to memory, in preparation for your quiz next week
  • Draw, paint or create something
  • and anything else that requires thought, concentration and effort.

Bring any work in to present, like you do after holidays.

Best wishes and stay safe,

Mr A

Lochinvar Recital

Here’s a video showing some of our Border Reivers topic work:  our Lochinvar Tapestry accompanied by Daniel in P4-7 reciting the poem by Sir Walter Scott.

Holiday Homework

Here are some ideas for Holiday Homework for the next two weeks:

  • Science experiment (ask for permission first!)
  • Art work
  • Keep a diary of what you do in the holidays (if you take a special jotter, 5 page minimum)
  • Make a movie
  • Shark Fact File
  • Build a bridge
  • Learn a tune on the tin whistle
  • Design or weave or embroider a pattern
  • Random jazz (something about anything, anything about something)
  • iXL challenge (blue gem for every 100 hundred questions)

French: self introduction, days of the week and months.

The librarian’s have set a story writing competition for over the break: the story should be over 50 words and for the P1s they can draw a story.

The P7s can enter the Operation Safety logo design competition.

Finally, of course you can do none of the above and get on with life.

Have a great break,

Mr A
