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!

Mrs Cook and baby Katie visit!

On Friday Mrs Cook came in for a surprise visit to show us her new, little baby, Katie Jane Cook.  She was enjoying a snooze and cuddle from her mum.  She opened her eyes for a little while but was soon back  asleep.  She was tiny and adorable! We loved her visit!

P3/4 Homework: Class Talk Project and Spelling

Spelling:  Children should continue to focus on their individual Tricky Word grids.

Class Talk:

Title: Things That Make Me Happy

Pupils have been given a project to prepare and give a short 5 minute talk about the ‘things that make me happy’. Some ideas might be hobbies, toys, holidays, family and friends but you can include anything that makes you happy. You can decide how you would like to present the talk i.e. PowerPoint (saved on GLOW or pen drive), poster, photographs, bringing in items (trophies, toys etc.)

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 20th May

We need your help: STEM Pirate Ships

George, our engineer, came in this morning to start our pirate STEM project with us.  We are hoping to create our very own pirate ships! But we need your help. We are hoping to use lots of recycled material so we need:

  • shoe boxes or cereal boxes
  • sticks
  • fabric or tissue paper
  • Milk bottle lids
  • cocktail sticks
  • a little toy to decorate the front
  • string
  • Tubes, like kitchen roll tubes
  • eggs boxes

Please start bringing them in to school so we can start planning our project.

Thanks again for your continued support,

Mrs Ferguson

Time for Time!

P3/4 was exploring time today so we decided to head outside and draw our own clocks in the playground.  We then used our clocks to show different ‘o’clock’, ‘half past’, ‘quarter past’ and ‘quarter to’ times.

Heritage Committee Visit to ECC

Today was our last committee group session so we decided that we would visit the ECC because we have been helping them organise their 50th celebration.  The committee had the opportunity to play with children outside.  We all had a great morning!

Measuring Time!

Primary 3/4 went outside today to measure the length of two animals that we found in our reading book.  The animals were a Blue Whale and a Colossal Squid.  We used a measuring tape, metre stick and trundle wheel to measure them. We talked about which equipment we would use to measure different things.  We were amazed at the size of the sea creatures!
