Deadly 60

This term we are exploring the world’s deadliest animals with Mr Shanks.  Keep your eyes peeled for some fascinating facts and examples of our work.  Today Calvin was researching which features make animals and reptiles dangerous and deadly.  Did you know that boa constrictors can crush a human’s bones by squeezing?

Active Maths

In class we have been exploring the properties of 2D and 3D shapes.  ‘I know that a triangle has 3 straight sides and 3 corners.’ – Calvin

Miss Fulton has been sharing some links to games that can help us with our learning.  Why don’t you test your own skills and explore the properties of shapes?

Daily Connections

It’s important for us to make connections throughout our day which support relationships and transitions.  A small part of this is participating in a morning check-in and a reflection at the end of the day.  Our favourite, at the moment, is the morning ‘sock’ reconnection.

Outdoor Education

We are currently taking part in a block of climbing sessions.  Our sessions have taken place at the Lowport Centre in Linlithgow and the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena at Ratho.  These sessions have been lots of fun and we have shown determination and perseverance.
