OUTDOOR LEARNING CLOTHING – AMENDMENT

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.

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!

To allow all pupils to access outdoor learning in the changeable Scottish weather, we would like to ask if pupils could please bring in a named bag with old wellies, trousers (waterproof if possible but other old trousers if not) and a rain jacket.  Please do not buy any new items!  If you do not have any of these items which could be left in school throughout term time, please send a note to your child’s teacher and we will organise this for you.  If you could please ensure that all items of clothing and wellies have your child’s name and class clearly marked, that would be fantastic.  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.

P5 Talents and Achievements

 

Zaydan told us about his family celebrations for Eid. He showed the class his lego master truck which he got with his money and told us he was able to build it independently in one night!

 

Alexis enjoys writing songs in her spare time. She performed her song about marmalade this afternoon and everyone danced along.

Well done P5b!  Please keep sharing your talents and achievements with the class.

National Numeracy Day

To celebrate National Numeracy Day we have been taking part in lots of different activities. We have been doing some cutting and sticking to help us learn our multiplication tables.

Some groups of children have been playing maths games to help learn place value and numbers up to 1000.

This group have made some of their own maths games that they will teach their friends how to play!

We have had a great day celebrating the wonderful world of Numeracy 🙂

Hot Hot Hot!

Please can all children come to school with a water bottle and suncream applied as we may be venturing outside for more outdoor learning to make the most of this glorious weather. Thank you! 🙂

Topic Fun in the Sun

We have been learning all about the reign of John Balliol and his contribution to the Scottish Wars of Independence. We set up some discussion stations and worked in groups to share our thoughts and opinions. We then went outside and created some colourful mindmaps detailing everything we learned about him.

Salvador Dali

We have been learning about the Spanish artist Salvador Dali. We particularly enjoyed his painting called ‘The Elephants’ and we thought we would try to recreate it.

First of all we used chalk to create a sunset background.

We then drew two elephants, we used a youtube draw-a-long to help with this!

Finally, we decorated our elephants, cut them out and added them to our backgrounds. Here are some of the finished masterpieces!

They will be displayed in the gym hall for the month of May, we hope you like them 🙂

Mandarin

This  morning we had our first Mandarin lesson. Our teacher is called Chao. We learned how to say hello, goodbye and the names for members of our family. It was lots of fun and we can’t wait for our next lesson .

P5 Show

Well done to P5 for putting on a fabulous show this morning!

We hope our morning audience enjoyed themselves and we are looking forward to doing all again this evening for more family and friends.
