ICE Pack – What do I want?

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS *

The Daisies class enjoyed making a choice of what items to wish for in their Santa letters. We explored the Smyths website and chose 5 items that we liked.

We printed images and cut and stick them into a Santa letter. We practised overwriting our names on the bottom of the letter and are hoping to go and post them next week.

50 things outdoors – bubbles

The Bluebells love being outdoor. We enjoy going to the garden on a walk. At the start of the school year we explored bubbles in the garden which was lots of fun. We revisited it this week using our bubble rocket launcher in the garden. The children thoroughly enjoyed seeing the rocket fly into the air and the bubbles that it produced. Some even tried to stomp hard to make the rocket soar into the sky. They enjoyed running and catching the bubbles and bursting them with their hands.

FAOL – Good Health and Wellbeing

*Successful Learners*     *Confident Individuals*     *Responsible Citizens*

 

The Snowdrops have really enjoyed looking at, touching, smelling and tasting a variety of healthy foods.  For trying new healthy foods we followed the process of smelling it first, then kissing it with our lips, touching it with our tongues and then finally popping it in our mouths to eat.  Everyone did really well following these steps for the first time.

We have also looked at and explored foods that are unhealthy for us and discuss why they were not good for us. We were then able to identify and sort a variety of foods into the 2 different groups of healthy and unhealthy.

FAOL – Enterprise MacMillan Coffee Morning

Today was MacMillan snack morning at school.  We came dressed in purple and green and decorated cupcakes. We mixed green food colouring into the frosting and added it to the top of our cakes. We also used a rolling pin to roll out the green fondant icing and put it on top of a biscuit.

This week we also created pig masks and today we visited the atrium to stand on the muddy puddle with a Percy pig cut out.  We also decorated a giant cupcake to display on our door for everyone to see. We enjoyed sharing a snack together with our friends.

Fine motor skills and Farm to fork

*Confident Individuals     *Effective Contributors     *Responsible Citizens *Successful Learners

Another fantastic week in the Comets class. We have been working hard on our fine motor skills and farm to fork activities.

The Comets were successful learners when identifying where different types of food comes from. We looked at the journey a carrot takes to reach our plates. The children were effective contributors when taking part in classroom discussions and activities.

We have been confident individuals when preparing our carrots in different ways. All the children used the equipment in a safe and efficient way.

World Book Day

Today is World Book Day and our chosen class book was “The Hungry Caterpillar” – the ladies even dressed up as characters from the book.

We read the story and did lots of activities throughout the day.  We made caterpillars using our finger prints and counted the correct number to put on each one. We sorted healthy and unhealthy foods. We posted the food the caterpillar ate though the mouth of our big caterpillar and we also did some painting with a potato masher. It was lots of fun.

Planets welcome back Primary 3!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS *

The Planets class enjoyed welcoming back some of our pupils.

We completed some Health and Wellbeing ICE Pack lessons focusing on emotions. We sorted a range of emotions into positive and negative emotions (worried, shy, excited etc) and then made our own mood monsters.

We also looked closely at one of the SHANARRI indicators about being responsible. We brainstormed ideas about ways we can be responsible and tried to take on some chores around the class.

Finally, we enjoyed celebrating Purple Friday where we tasted a range of “purple” foods including beetroot, red grapes, purple gummy sweets, purple coloured pringles and vimto juice.

Home learning tasks- week 7

Good morning Comets and happy Monday! 

We are officially in Spring and it has been super to see a little sunshine over the weekend

What better way to start the 1st day of a new month by practising our signs for the months of the year!

This week we will be Effective Contributors as we work on our tasks for World Book Day.  For our home learning this week we will be looking at different books and of course a new Giglets story. You can find the home learning tasks HERE.

I have included a delicious recipe for a Gruffalo cake (we are HUGE fans of the Gruffalo in class.) 

It has been so lovely to see you all on our VScene calls and I look forward to it again this week. 

Take care and stay safe.

We are missing you all!

Home learning tasks-week 6

Good morning Comets and families,

How are we all? We are missing you in school and can’t wait till we can be together again.

Last week during our VScene calls we practised signing the colours of the rainbow. February is LGTB month and this Friday is ‘Purple Friday’.  We have been working hard on activities in class.  At home you can try and make this beautiful rainbow.

The resources you need for this art activity are-

  • Some cotton balls
  • Piece of paper
  • Different coloured paint (colours from the rainbow)

Using the cotton balls make different coloured arches. Remember you will need a new cotton ball for each colour. After each colour you can practise the signs.

Other home learning tasks for the week can be found HERE.

We do not have a Giglets book assigned for this week. However, if you would like one added to your account you can email me. I can add something I think you would enjoy. This week I will be doing our weekly check-ins on Wednesday. I am looking forward to speaking to you all.

Take care and stay safe,

Miss Robertson x

Home learning – week beg 8th Feb

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well. This month is LGBT month, and we would have been reading a book all about different families.  This book is called “The Family Book” by Todd Parr. Click the link to hear the story being read on YouTube.

The Family Book

Literacy

Rainbow hop

Let’s continue the rainbow theme. Make giant letters in different colours and place them on the floor. You could start with (s a t p i n), someone at home can help, then they can shout out a letter and you have to run and jump onto the correct letter. You could even do it with the letters of your name and then find each letter in the correct order to spell your name.

Numeracy

Shapes are all around us and we had been exploring different shapes in the classroom. Look around the house and see what shapes you can find. You can also play this Shape game .In the game you need to feed the monsters the correct shapes.

Health and Wellbeing

Make a pizza

Make your own pizza at home. Try using a wrap, pitta bread or pizza base. Spread the sauce over the base, then add your toppings – there are lots of things you could add to your pizza. Why not have a go and create an LGBT rainbow pizza. Is your pizza round or square? Did you enjoy your pizza?

Chinese New Year

This week is also Chinese New Year. You could try different Chinese foods at home such as noodles, prawn crackers and prawn toast. Email me and let me know what you liked.

This year is the year of the Ox.  I was born in the year of the Goat. Use this website to find out which animal you are and more information about Chinese New Year.

You could make a colourful lantern by folding a piece of paper in half making some slits not quite to the end of the paper, decorate then twist into a cylinder shape and secure with glue or staples and add a strip of paper to the top to create a handle. You could place a battery-operated tea light in the bottom and see the light shine through.
