Odd Sock Day

Today P3/4 organised an Odd Sock Day to celebrate the start of our Anti Bullying Week.  It reminds us that we are all different and these differences should be celebrated. We were amazed by all the brightly coloured socks on show! Well done everyone!

Aiden and Lexi were our fantastic photographers. Can you spot Mrs Govans? …

After School Homework Club

A reminder that Mrs Schendel will be running an after school homework club starting tomorrow at 3pm-4pm.  This is a drop in session and an opportunity to ask Mrs Schendel any questions you may have on supporting your child’s learning at home or to spend time completing homework tasks with your child.  The session will take place in the ICT suite and computers will be available to use.  This club is open to pupils from P1 to P7, however all pupils must be accompanied by an adult.  Pupils will be dismissed from school as normal to meet their parents in the playground and can then       re-enter through the main doors where they will be asked to sign in.

 

Polar Regions Talks

Well done to all the boys and girls who took part in Polar Regions Talks. The class enjoyed hearing each other as well as asking questions and taking part in peer assessment. We have displayed some of the wonderful  work in class.

Primary 4/5 Project

Primary 4/5 will be working with George, the engineer, for the next couple of weeks. With our topic being Ancient Egypt, the class will be designing and creating their own pyramids. The children can bring in any bits and bobs, from around the house, that may be suitable for this project. For example, cardboard boxes, old cereal boxes, items for decoration, etc.

We will be starting this project on Monday 11th November. Children can bring in their items before this date and store them within the classroom.

Thank you for your help 🙂

 

 

Avalon Outdoor learning Day


Avalon went round  Catrine as part of our Outdoor Learning. And first of all we went down to the square. Once we got down we ate our snack. Afterwards  we went to get our labels and we used the labels to collect different colours of leafves like red,green,brown, yellow and orange.Then we went across to the grass and made a video where we threw leaves. Then we made it into a boomerang video and the video finished up really cool. The main reason we went down there is to spot signs of Autumn. We saw leaves ,berries and we saw a bramble bush but there was no more fresh brambles on the bushes.We were expecting to see chestnuts but they had all fallen into the River Ayr. But the weirdest thing we saw was the water down by the nursery! It seems that it had unhealthy bubbles  in the mini river and there was a couch  and it was stopping the water from joining the  other side of the water. We had a fantastic day overall.

Literacy Open Morning

Thank you so much to everyone who attended our literacy open morning this morning   The children really enjoyed the opportunity to share their learning.  A special thank you to Demi, Daryl and Lexie who presented their e-portfolios (thankfully not in the costumes they are pictured in below!)

Following the discussions this morning Mrs Schendel will be starting an after school homework club on a Tuesday, starting Tuesday 12th November.  This will run for 4 weeks from 3pm to 4pm and will be an opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding helping your child at home with their learning or to complete homework tasks together.

This will be a drop in session, no need to attend every week, and it is open to all classes. No need to register beforehand, simply collect your child as usual at 3pm and come to the main entrance, where you will be asked to sign in. Children must come to the session accompanied by an adult. Sessions will take place in the ICT suit and computers will be available for use.

Communication between school and home

As highlighted last week, we’re trying to reduce the amount of paper we use so school news, information and updates are being sent electronically via three different ways – our school blog on GLOW, our school APP and ParentPay email.

Can you please highlight which method suits you best for us to communicate with you?

All responses will be confidential.

Thank you for your continued support.

What have primary 4/5 been doing?

Well it has been a busy week in P4/5. We enjoyed taking part in the outdoor day on Wednesday alongside the whole school.

Literacy

Whilst the primary 5 pupils attended green gym, the primary 4 pupils created a word search with the ‘e’ sounds. This was a fun and challenging way for the pupils to engage with their spelling words.

Can you see the ‘e’ sound in every word?

 

PE

In PE the class have started football. This week we looked at warm up drills such as high knees, side stepping and bum kicks. We also mastered the art of ball control through different dribbling exercises.

Watch out for Miss Robb’s soccer squad!
