Primary 4/5 Institute Visit

Primary 4/5 visited the institute today and enjoyed making homemade shortbread.  This links in great with our Scottish topic on Scotland’s food and farming.

Everyone had a fantastic time and couldn’t believe how delicious their shortbread tasted 🙂

Inclusion Committee

Yesterday, the Inclusion committee met for the second committee day. We looked at growth mindset and talked about the power of yet. The committee group decided that this was so important that we had to tell the whole school about it.

We made posters to tell everyone about growth mindset and have prepared a small presentation for home circles that we can’t wait for you all to hear.

We decided to make a tree to represent Catrine’s growth mindset. On this tree every pupil will have a goal that they cannot do…. YET! We look forward to seeing everyone’s goals and watching everyone’s journey.

The inclusion committee have lots of exciting ideas up our sleeves and can’t wait to share them with you all in the near future!

Outdoor Learning

Today Primary 4/5 took their learning outside. They worked together to create a bar graph with an x and y axis and a scale showing off all their learning from information handling.

They then considered all the ways that they could sort themselves to create these amazing human bar graphs.

They sorted themselves by boy or girl:

 Then they sorted themselves by age:

Lastly by favourite snack:

We think these human bar graphs looks fantastic and found this a fun way to show off our learning in information handling.

Fantastic Gymnastics

Primary 4/5 have started a new gymnastics block in PE.

We have been learning different types of rolls and  jumps.

Today we were learning different types of holds: bridge hold, balance hold, plank and partner hold.

 

I can see some superstars in the making! 🙂

Primary 3/4/5 Christmas Party

AND THATS A WRAP….

What a fantastic time we all had at the primary 3/4/5 Christmas party.  We ceilidh danced the Gay Gordons and the Canadian Barn dance. All our hard work came together and we looked the part!

 

We disco danced our socks off to all our favourite songs, danced the Cha Cha Slide, 5,6,7,8 and Superman. By the end we were all rosy cheeked and knackered!

Of course no party is complete without party games!

MERRY CHRISTMAS 🙂

 

 

Cartouche Making

Primary 4/5 have been busy making these Egyptian Cartouches.

 

Each cartouche has the pupils name in hieroglyphics.

 

The class had a fantastic time learning about cartouches through making their own.

 

Can you make your name in hieroglyphics?

 

 

THANK YOU GEORGE!

Primary 4/5 would like to give a big massive thank you to George.

George has been working within primary 4/5 for the past 4 weeks helping to create Egyptian pyramid structures. We loved working with George to create these masterpieces.

What do you think about our Egyptians pyramids?

Active Boys Day

After the success and enjoyment of active girls day we decided at Catrine to continue with an active boys day and what a day it was!

All classes participated in football, rugby, gymnastics and basketball which was led by the primary 7 boys 🙂

It was great to see all the boys in the school engaged in sport with some even trying new sports.

A huge thank you to the primary 7 boys who were a fantastic hand today. They were great role models for all pupils providing support to those who needed it!

 

Until next time 🙂
