Home Learning – week beg. 25th January


Learn about Scotland and living on an island by watching Katie Morag on iPlayer – what episode did you watch? Did you enjoy it?

Have a look at this clip where Katie Morag is playing pooh sticks. Have you played pooh sticks before? Did you like it? When you are on a walk you could have a go and play pooh sticks too. Video – Katie Morag – pooh sticks

Now have some fun doing the Shooglie Wooglie. This a clip from Scottish Book Trust doing the Scottish version of the Hokey Cokey. Have fun and hopefully you learn some Scottish words for different body parts.

Our theme this term is Scottish castles can you use kitchen roll tubes to create castles. Places a different number on each castle you make. Then you can play a game, placing the correct number of straws or pencils inside the numbered castle – you could even add flags to the top of each straw/pencil. Have fun. 😊 You could also get help from someone in your family to draw a castle with a number on it and place the correct number of toys on top on the castle drawing. You could also create a number line. Draw a castle with battlements then use a toy character to count to 10 and back again moving him along the battlements.

Health and Wellbeing

Put on your own mini Highland games in your house.

Toss the caber – use a cardboard tube for this.

Hammer throw – use a cushion and see who can throw it the furthest.

Catch the Haggis – use a bean bag or a sponge or even an orange. How many times can you catch it before it drops?


Have a look online at different tartan designs. Then have a go of making your own tartan. This can be made drawing lines with pencils, pens or crayons. You could even get messy and use paint. Or you could cut or tear paper into strips creating you own design by sticking them to a piece of paper.

Theme: Yogi and the Great Outdoors – Measure

Successful Learners   Confident Individuals

The Moonbeams have been learning about Measure through their theme. The children were able to sign big, small, long and short. We looked at things we would find outside. The children were able to recognise, identify and order these from biggest to smallest. We then had some sensory fun looking for big and small objects in the sand and water beads.


FAOL Science

We have been learning about butterflies in the Sunflowers class. Today we watched a video about what happens. The egg hatches into a caterpillar and eats lots of food before building a cocoon and then turned into a butterfly. We then stuck images from “The Hungry Caterpillar” book in order from the egg to the butterfly.

We will get caterpillars in the new year and watch then grow and then finally turn into butterflies and let them free in the playground.


Food Tasting Fun!


The Bluebells class were very brave when trying a range of themed foods today. We tried a range of foods that were in our theme film “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”. We tried watermelon, pretzels, chicken nuggets, hamburger, ice cream and even sardines!

All pupils tolerated tasting these foods or giving them a kiss.
