FAOL – Whole School Projects – Harvest

*Responsible Citizens       *Effective Contributors

We have enjoyed many Harvest activities this week. We collected groceries for the Food Bank, enjoyed a Harvest Assembly with Rev. Cameron, ground wheat to show how flour is made and baked bread. At art we created scarecrows, harvest wreaths and printed apple patterns. We played the glockenspiel, following patterns, to play autumn songs. We also make tasty apple punch.

National Maths Week

*Successful Learners

This week we have been doing loads of numeracy activities. As well as our ILP work we have had an outdoor maths trail, learnt about clothes needed for different seasons, measured and counted ingredients needed for Empire Biscuits and made a rain gauge. We did size ordering, explored a sock box, played snakes and ladders  where we used a dice and measured using large bricks. We had a great time learning.

FAOL – Sciences – Floating and Sinking

*Successful Learners       *Effective Contributors

We tried to guess which items would float and which items would sink. We weren’t always right! Some items even floated for a wee while then sank! We had great fun. We’ve also enjoyed a treasure hunt, made ‘star’ sandwiches and made tree pictures as we explored seasons.

Art and HE Activities in the Stars Class

*Effective Contributors         *Responsible Citizens

We have had a happy week in the Stars class. We enjoyed time in the garden where we had a colour hunt and checked how our garden produce was growing. We also made scones which we ate for snack with jam and printed handprints and flowers for our ‘Friendship Garden’ wall display.

A Warm Welcome for the New Stars Class

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

The Stars class have settled in well to their new classroom and routine and have enjoyed doing activities together after the summer break. We learnt ‘All About Me’ and told our likes and dislikes, made friendship potions, discussed kind and unkind behaviours, read Rainbow Fish and made personalised flowers for our ‘Friendship Garden’ wall display. In the sensory garden we weeded and tidied our planters where we discovered potatoes, onions, carrots, nasturtiums and sweet peas which were planted by Mrs Gardner’s class last year.
