Primary 2/3 have been learning Tennis as part of our topic Scotland. We have some wonderful pictures of the children channelling their inner Andy Murray to ‘Throw, Bounce and Catch’ the ball.
Primary 2/3 and our school Ukulele Group performed their Scottish poems and songs to visitors at the community hub yesterday. They were fantastic, WELL DONE! Primary 2’s said their poem Mince and Tatties and P3 said Twa Leggit Mice, we all sang ‘Ye Canny Shove Yer Grannie Aff a Bus.’ We had a wonderful performance of Auld Lang Syne with the ukulele club leading on music. What a fantastic show of talent from the boys and girls at Catrine!
Primary 3/4’s Magic Classroom
This week P3/4 have been learning about the different ways we can learn. We discussed the different types of learners: visual, auditory or kinaesthetic and the pupils completed a quiz to find out what type of learner they are. In order to suit all learning styles we decided to change the classroom into a ‘Magic Classroom’, where the children have the responsibility to choose the place they work best. We have set up different workstations around the class, some with music, quiet areas, beanbags and clipboards, and the children are really enjoying exploring these!
Please note that the Ukulele club on Tuesday 31 January has been cancelled. Parents will be notified when the club will resume.
