December in P4b

Maths

We had so much fun today applying our knowledge of angles, position and movement when using both beebots and probots.

Reading corner

Have a look at our new cosy reading corner. We brainstormed ideas for our new class library theme and decided on a jungle theme. We have been enjoying using this space!

RE- Advent

Today we learned about the role that the Wise Men played in the Christmas stories. We also made an Advent promise which we displayed on an Advent candle.

 

Sponsored run

Next Monday (16th December) we will be particpating in a sponsored run to raise money for cancer charities. We have sent home sponsor forms if anybody wants to sponsor the children for their run! Thank you for your support with this.

Look what P4b have been doing!

Music:

Our music specialist Mrs Lyle visits us every fortnight. Recently we have been learning a range of rhythms and beats. Have a look at us practising in class!

 

Hockey:

We have just completed a block of hockey in PE! Have a look at us enjoying playing some games in the playground.

       STEM:

Yesterday in STEM, we carried out an experiment called the ‘Charm Masterclass’. We mixed together some reactants to make a chemical reaction! We then wrote a report on our findings!

Stage Mass:

We look forward to seeing anyone who can come along next Tuesday for our Stage Mass in the Main hall!

P4c Describing Setting

P4c worked incredibly hard this morning to use their senses to bring a picture to life. The groups demonstrated great talking and listening skills, were able to take notes, organise their notes under the correct headings and every group included some excellent descriptive, ambitious and interesting vocabulary. Very well done P4c!

P3c showing off some of their family history.

P3c have started their new social studies topic of  “Scottish people during WW2”. Today we were lucky enough to have Brodie and Amelia  to showcase some of their family WW2 artefacts.

Brodie is seen here displaying his great grandfathers old “billet casing” and war medal.

Amelia is seen below telling the story of her great grandfather and how he was a prisoner of war for four years. She showed the class an address book which her grandfather created in prison out of plaster. It is in this book he detailed all names and addresses of the men he shared his time with.

P3c and Magnets

Today in the STEM room with Miss Thomson and Miss Collins we started our topic of magnets.

We really enjoyed all of our stations and are excited to learn more about magnets attracting and repelling next week.

Healthy Eating in P3d

Today P3d collected herbs from the school herb garden and made delicious healthy dips. We used yoghurt and chopped tomatoes as the base for our dips and added vegetables and herbs. We enjoyed them with warm wholemeal pitta bread. Yum!
