Morning Jog Club

We are just back from our first morning jog club of the session.  12 pupils headed down to the Dock Park to start their day with a warm up, timed jog and some relay races.  We then headed back to school for a stretch before a quick change and ready for the day to start!  Have a look at our smiley faces after our healthy start to the day:

 

P6 Spooky Stories for Halloween

P6 gave our P3 and P4 pupils a treat yesterday when they shared  the spooky stories they had created with them. All the stories were different and had spooky aspects, but the P6 pupils knew who their target audience was, so did not make them too scary. The P6s had also created comprehension questions to check their audience members were listening well and the P3s and P4s showed excellent listening skills! Finally the younger children filled in feedback sheets for the P6s and their responses were very positive about the quality of the P6 work and how it was delivered.

Well done P6 on all your hard work!

P4 IDL Homework Renewable Energy

Well done and thank you P4 and families for the wonderful work you have prepared at home as the finale to our Energy topic.

We invited P3 along to our exhibition of work and have all the models on display outside the classroom to celebrate your efforts.  There has been all sorts of wonderful crafting, woodwork and technology to create wind turbines, solar houses, geo-thermal and hydro electricity models. I am really impressed at how well the children have worked and spoken about their projects and with the enthusiasm they have shown not only for their own work but also in the positive way they have spoken about the projects of their peers.

Good for you all P4!

Welcome Back

October holidays for this year are now a thing of the past. We hope that everyone has had a relaxing holiday and is ready for a busy term ahead. As always the second term of the academic year is always very busy. We look forward to the opportunities and challenges it brings.

Primary 3 Farm Visit

On Wednesday Primary 3 had a fantastic trip to Newhouse Farm.  Farmer Fraser Nicholson did a great job of showing us round after his visit to school earlier in the week .  We started with a visit from the farm vet and he was busy scanning some cows.  Then we saw the cows being milked and this gave us a real insight in to the journey our milk takes from farm to our fridges.  Thanks to Fiona from RHET for organising this trip and Farmer Fraser for letting us look round his farm.

P7 Operation Safety

On Friday P7 went to Operation Safety at the old hospital. It is an event where they can have a hands on safety education delivered by Police, Fire and Ambulance as well as Scottish Power energy services. We learned about how to be safe in our homes and spotted fire hazards in a bedsit and kitchen area. We also spoke about what to do if there was ever a fire in the home or building. We also learned about firework safety and how to keep ourselves safe. In the Police Scotland room we learned about internet safety and how information can be shared on line. We also took part in a scenario situation where someone had had an accident in the home, through the ambulance service we learned about making sure the area is safe and what to say when phoning 999. We also learned how to put someone into the recovery position. In the Scottish Power input we found out about how electricity gets into our homes and discussed how we use electricity. We also discussed the hazards overhead lines and electricity generators can be. We had a great day and Sophia and Caleb won the quiz at the end.

P2’s natural pattern masterpieces!

P2 have been learning about patterns in maths and today we took some inspiration from the work of the artist James Brunt, and created our own pattern designs in our woodland area.

The children worked together in small groups and used resources from nature, sticks, different coloured leaves, pine cones, conkers, stones and twigs were all used to create their pattern masterpieces!

We are delighted with how they turned out!

 

 

 

P7 Fitness

P7 have been working on their fitness levels over the last couple of weeks. We have been recording how many times we can do 1 activitity/exercise in 1 minute and recorded our scores. Each week we have been trying to set our own personal goals and have achieved many of them.

St Joseph’s Maths Champions Visit

St Joseph’s Maths Champions came across to St Andrew’s this week to begin working with our Primary 6 and 7 children on bar modelling.  Everyone enjoyed working together and as you can see we even took advantage of the good weather!

Spelling Fun in Primary 3

Yesterday we took our spelling work outside and decided to learn our words whilst keeping healthy!  We tested each other whilst skipping, hula hooping and keeping the ball up with our bats! Some activities proved trickier than others but we all agreed it was good fun!
