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 parents/carers are warmly invited to the school on Thursday 31 October for our Literacy Open Morning from 9.00 a.m. – 10.30 a.m.
All parents/carers should meet in the main hall where Mrs Schendel will give a short presentation on Literacy, GLOW and e-portfolios. You will then be able to walk around the school and visit your child’s class during their Literacy Lesson.
Primary 3 – 7 will be having a Halloween activity afternoon on Thursday 31 October between 1.00 p.m. – 3.00 p.m. within their classrooms. All children can bring their costumes to school and change independently during lunch time.
We are now the proud owners of our very own Be the Nice Kid signage. A huge thank you to Owen Kerr Signs for their kind donation. The BTNK sign shares an important message about kindness and thinking of others.
It’s now proudly on display in our school hall. Be sure to check it out the next time you are in visiting.
Children can practise their spelling words in any way they wish, and may want to use our activity sheet. There will be a spelling test in class on a Friday and this will be completed at the back of homework jotters so that results can be shared at home. Please remember to bring spelling jotters in to school on a Friday.
Well it has been a busy week in P4/5. We enjoyed taking part in the outdoor day on Wednesday alongside the whole school.
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?
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.
Please note that the new Robert Burns Academy and Supported Learning Centre will be closed on Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th August 2020 for the new S1 pupils. Please click on the link below for further information:
Today was outdoor learning day and Whiteflat did iMovies with Miss Burleigh and Miss Robb. First of all we went to p4/5s classroom and split into groups. Then we got some paper for our story board and went outside. We planned out the iMovie on the story board then got the props we needed. After we got the props we started filming. Some groups filmed it all in one but others did it with different clips put that they would put together. When everyone finished filming we went inside to edit it. Lastly we added some sound effects. Then we were ready to show them off.
Today ayrbank was building dens with Mrs ferguson, Miss McLean and Mr Spears. First of all we went to p2 and got into groups then we decided in our groups what our plan would be for our den once we had done that we headed outside to start building our dens. It was hard as it was very windy but at the end we managed. After break we got to decorate our dens using pillows chairs covers pens paper and whiteboards. Once we had finished decorating we got to sit in our dens for a while and even invite people to visit our dens. It was so much fun!!! Please click this link to see pictures of our fantastic dens
Today for Outdoor Day number 2 it was Marneil’s turn to create some Big Art. We watched an Art Attack, Big Art, clip to find out more about our task.
Then we split into groups and started planning. We had to sketch a rough design and make a list of the materials that we would need. After that we had to gather all the supplies from around the school.
We worked together in our groups to make our pictures. We went upstairs to view our pictures from the window and see just how good they were. We made a tiger, walking man, fish and a circus clown.
Pupils have been given a project to prepare and give a short talk about their favourite animal. Some ideas might be where they live, what they eat or what they look like but you can include anything. You can decide how you would like to present the talk i.e. poster, photographs, bringing in items from home 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 4th November
