This Week’s News
P1a and the Nursery enjoyed a Teddy Bear’s Picnic as part of our Nursery to P1 transition. We made yummy biscuits and pizzas and enjoyed having them at our picnic. Chloe – “We had face painting.” Ollie – “We had drinks.” Oliwier – “We made fruity kebabs with Liz from Tesco.” Sam – “We made bear headbands.” Kelvin – “We wrote stories to our bears.”
This week P1b have been thinking about what makes a good friend. We wrote a recipe for friendship and interviewed other pupils and staff. It was fun! Spelling homework is looking great, keep up the super work. Letters are coming out this week about a Tesco trip on the 7th June. If any parents can help please could you contact Miss Niven thank you.
P2a went to Rockcliffe to learn about the animals that live at the seaside with the Rangers. We went to see rockpools and we saw crabs, sea anemones, sea weed and winkles.
We drew pictures and decorated them with shells. We saw a lighthouse on the island. Then we had our lunch and then we played.
Curtis – “I liked looking in the rockpools.” Eilidh – “I liked seeing the tide come up to the beach.” Ruby – “I liked building sandcastles.” Duncan – “I liked when we got to see the winkles.”
P3 have been working on Olympic rings, assembly songs, area of shapes, athletics, keeping healthy and favourite sport stones. P3 shared an Olympic Assembly on Friday – it was great!
P3/4 – we have begun painting designs on the wellies – looking great. P5/6 have joined us for a singing session. It was a great success and we plan to do more.
In P4 we have been practising our adding and subtracting skills to help us add and give change in money. We have also had an exciting week with lots of visitors. Victoria, a personal trainer, taught us exercises for different muscles in our bodies and the Edinburgh Science Festival team taught us about our organs and how to stay healthy.
This week in P4/5 we had another visit from Pitch, Pulse and Magic. We thought about the stories and feelings expressed through music. We completed our class novel and we have written book reviews. Well done to Skye, Sophie and Lucy for scoring 100% on the Accelerated reader Quiz for Sky Hawk. On Thursday afternoon we learned more about the body through the Edinburgh Science Workshop.
P5 have welcomed Miss Solley (1st year Glasgow Student) into our class. We are less than 200 miles from New York in our class Daily Mile. Next week, if we do 6 laps a day each we will have done it! In health we have been learning about internet safety. Next week, we hope to start a challenge which we will need everyone’s help for. We all delivered a class talk about a chosen subject. There was a wide range of topics from Karate, Ice Skating, Computer games, Sports clubs and many more interesting topics.
This week in P6/7 we have been writing historical newspaper reports about the first Olympic Games. In art, we have been creating pictures inspired by the Brazilian artist Romero Britto. Our Primary 6’s enjoyed their trip to Operation Safety. They learnt about taking responsibility for their own safety, citizenship and how to cope in emergencies.
In P7 we have been working on data handling. We are creating our own artwork in the style of Brazilian artist Romero Britto. The class is reminded to practise their own solo talk presentation. The Paul Jones Football team won all their games this week.
