BIG T News

Watch out for the P5-7  BIG  T  News! Coming Soon!

We decided to have a competition to design the Title for our BIG T News. We had to consider shading and colouring, as well as producing an eye catching design.

After some deliberation, the one that was created by Tommy Black was chosen as the winning design.

Primary 1/2

Nursery with Anne and Kathleen

We are enjoying ourselves in the nursery. We have been able to get out and about quite a lot and we are very pleased with the new play park.

We go over to the school every Tuesday morning to work on the computers. We are getting very good at doing RM Maths independently.

We are hoping that we will have lots of new friends in the nursery soon!

This term we have been working on the Rainforest and we have built a jungle house in the nursery.  Mrs Cooke along with P1/2 children have been to visit us and we made animal masks and green playdough with them.  We went over to to school to watch a short film of the amazon, the people who live their and also the beautiful animals and birds, they were really colourful.  We saw lots of fruit that we did n’t recognise, like passion fruit and figs and papaya today we are going to taste them to see which ones we like.

Primary 5, 6 and 7

We have several interesting activities happening over the next few weeks. Please ask your child/children about the following visits!

  • Marcus Sedgwood, author, visiting on Tuesday 10th September.

Discussing some of his books, his style of writing, the characters in his books and giving the children an opportunity to be involved in drama.

  • Kirsty Macleod, Tong will be visiting on Wednesday 11th September to do science activities with the children.

The workshops will focus on the use of technology in medicine, and how this is particularly useful in rural areas.  Children will discuss the ethics involved, and will have the opportunity to experiment with robots.

  • Thursday 19th September – a visit from the travelling gallery. Children will have an opportunity to board the bus to observe various pieces of art work and they will also have the opportunity to discuss what they see.

Our topic for term 1 is Native American Indians. If you have any items or artefacts relating to this topic we would be pleased if you would let us borrow them for the duration of the project!

(Many thanks to those who have sent in items and books from home!)

We are in the process of building a tepee in the classroom and we are also designing some totem poles with Mrs. Smith. We will post photos of these when the tasks have been completed.

Our next big task is to create  a Native American dance to go along with traditional music!

The Arrow and the Song

by Henry W. Longfellow

I shot an arrow into the air;
It Fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a Song into the air;
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong
That it can follow the flight of Song?

Long, long afterwards, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.

Some of the children will be performing the above poem to their peers this term.
