This afternoon we worked very hard to increase Kirkhill’s lead in the final week of Beat the Street. Walking is an effective to exercise your body and relax your mind, and it is free! It is dry and mild outside so, if you are able, take your tag out this week and hit as many boxes as you can. Good luck!
This Thursday was World Book Day! We brought in props from our favourite books. Ayah had a full Hunger Games outfit and Heather had a bow and arrow set to match. We had special personal reading time, took part in a book swap and added to the ‘A Classes’ Travelling Book’.
P1 to 5 had written about a starfish that was rescued by a unicorn and taken to a magical land with lollipop trees and odd black goo puddles. We worked in pairs to think of ideas about where to take the story. We voted for our favourite and worked as a super team, contributing and voting on each event. We used great openers and wow words to create a problem for p7 to resolve in their conclusion. We can’t wait to hear how the story ends!
As part of the First Minister’s Reading Challenge we regularly update our Reading Passports and set ourselves some challenges to make reading fun. We had a special afternoon creating reading dens and got comfy with a good book!
