We’re Ready! Bring it on!

Primary 7 have been little elves and working hard at Santa’s Workshop . We are super excited to welcome all our lovely families to our Christmas Fayre during our open classrooms at 2pm tomorrow.

Children are welcome to bring in some pocket money if they would like to take part in some of the different activities or buy any of the products. Thank you in anticipation!

P7 Christmas Fayre Adverts

We were busy making adverts for our P7 Christmas Fayre today. We used emotive and persuasive language with a memorable slogan. There are lots of special offers to look out for. We hope to see you during the open classrooms on Friday afternoon.

We are ready, are you?

Our Finished Books

We enjoyed creating our books, we wrote a variety of fairy tales with a twist.

We loved sharing them  this morning with P3, Miss McArthur and Miss Ali. We are looking forward to reading them with our P1 buddies later this afternoon.

Battle of Dunkirk

This afternoon we used I pads to research about the battle of Dunkirk as part of our learning on WWII. We used this information to make a cartoon strip of the events that took place at that time.

 

Mini Debates

This morning we engaged in a mini debate in preparation for our Lord Provost debate.

The motion was: Primary 7 should get to sit benches on at assembly.

Money Advice Scotland

Today we had a special guest from Money Advice Scotland visit our classroom. She told us all about budgeting and we used this knowledge to plan a party for 20 people. We also took part in a money quiz!

 

Famous Mathematicians

Primary 7 are kicking off by working in groups to research famous mathematicians and explore the impact they have had on the world!

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!
