Growth Mindset

Today we did an activity using a polo mint and thread that blew our minds. Let’s see how many parents/siblings are blown away!

We learned all about our mindset and how we can change our mindset.

Multiplication and Division by 10, 100 and 1000

We were using people to represent numbers and moving them a certain number of places in the place value order. We were multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. We used a hoop to represent our decimal point.

Outdoor Learning Experiences

OUTDOOR LEARNING CLOTHING
Different outdoor learning experiences offer opportunities for personal and learning skills development in areas such as communication, problem solving, information technology, working with others and thinking skills. Learning in the outdoors can make significant contributions to literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing. Therefore, outdoor learning offers many opportunities for learners to deepen and contextualise their understanding within curriculum areas, and for linking learning across the curriculum in different contexts and at all levels.
(Learning and Teaching Scotland, 2010)

At Kirkhill Primary we strive to provide regular outdoor learning experiences for all our children. As a school we have a fantastic outdoor space which can be used across the curriculum to develop our children socially, emotionally and academically. During last session we had a super Science Garden added to our fantastic Eco garden and we can’t wait to explore here and other areas of our school grounds!
To allow all pupils to access outdoor learning in the changeable Scottish weather, we would appreciate the children bringing in outdoor clothing (wellies, rain jackets and trousers) on days they will be learning outdoors. Class teachers will let you know via the class blogs the days that these are required so that you can keep them at home on other days. Also, if you have any spare items which your child is not using any more and you are happy to give these to the school, please put this in a bag with it clearly labelled as spare clothing for the school to allow items to be shared with our families.
Thank you in advance with your support with outdoor learning and please get in touch if you have any questions. This support will allow our children to have a fantastic time learning outdoors come rain or shine!

Possession Games

Today P7a nd P7b worked together to develop their passing and dribbling skills during outdoor P.E.

 

Welcome to P7a

Today we were working on our communication skills.  Our task was to lower the cane as a group. We felt challenged because there was lots of blaming within the group and people were not co-operating during the task.

We soon realised that to be successful, we need to be working as a team. We will persevere and try this activity again.
