P3/4 Class Talk Homework Project

Title: My Polar Animal

Pupils have been given a project to prepare and give a short 5 minute talk about a polar animal of their choice. Some ideas might be polar bears, penguins, whales or seals. You can use the internet or books to find out facts or pictures/drawings about your animal. You can decide how you would like to present the talk ie PowerPoint (saved on GLOW or pendrive), poster, photographs, bringing in items.

Children should practise their talk at home in order to be able to fluently talk to the class, they might want to use notes on paper to help them remember their talk.

Talks should be ready to be heard for Monday 4th November

Blair Drummond Trip (P3/4)

What a fantastic day we all had yesterday at Blair Drummond Safari Park.  We loved seeing all the animals, especially the monkeys jumping on the buses!  We watched Lola, the sea lion, at the Sea Lion show and had great fun in the huge park.  We then went on a boat trip to Chimp Island and floated along in the Pedalos.  It was a brilliant day all round!
