ECC – Monkey Room and Outdoor Learning

We have been busy doing lots of active maths both inside and outside.

They have been using games like hopscotch to develop their number recognition, counting and ordering.

They have also been using natural objects such as pinecones and conkers to practice counting, estimating and matching amounts to the number.

ECC – Gruffalo Room

In the Gruffalo Room the children have enjoyed telling stories to each other – this develops their communication skills including pre-reading skills.

They have been doing lots of cutting and sticking-  this requires concentration and uses their fine motor skills.

Games such as Matching Pairs and Pack my Bag have been very popular.  The children are learning to take turns and working out the rules of the game. They need also need to focus and use their observation skills.

ECC – Hungry Caterpillar Room

In the Hungry Caterpillar Room the children had pizza for their snack, they choose their own toppings and put them on the bases.

Making choices about their snack and helping to prepare it encourages them to be independent and to try new foods.

World Book Day – Thursday 7th March

World Book day is upon us again and this year we are spreading the word of the importance of sharing stories for just 10 minutes a day, anywhere, anytime.  In school teachers will be swapping classes to read stories to the pupils and to highlight the enjoyment and value of reading.  Pupils will also take part in different activities throughout the day.

All pupils will bring home a book token to swap for one of the selected World Book Day books available at bookshops and some supermarkets or to use to get £1 off ANY book or audiobook worth £2.99 or more.

Happy reading!

Primary 7 STEM Challenge

As part of their Environment topic, Primary 7 have been working with engineer George Burns on a STEM challenge to build a wind vane generator. The pupils had to work together, communicate and solve problems in their teams to create their models using K’Nex materials. The finished models were then judged and the teams were also given a quiz to test their knowledge.

Our overall winners were Stuart and Aidan who worked very well together to complete the challenge.

Well done Primary 7!
