It’s been a busy few weeks in Primary 3C! We have been learning lots.

We have been reading the ‘Owl Who is Afraid of the Dark’ and we have written fact files and created owl art work. We made food chains to show how plants and animals need each other.

We also used colour to create desert inspired pictures. Finally in maths we used 2D shapes to create some cool robots.

Here is some of our fantastic work, which we are very proud of!

World War II evacuee green screen and book creator

Primary 7A discussed how best to use their green screen and the iPad. They reenacted the evacuees leaving their homes, their train journey, the billeting process and their new life on a farm. These images were then imported into Book Creator on the iPad which resulted in a comic strip of events. Here are some pictures which show the journey the children went on with their learning.

“School uniforms should be required”. Discuss.

Inspired by the P7 children who came third place in the Debating Competition last week (🎉👏🏼), P5a learned the meaning of a “debate” and began to form arguments of their own.

Today’s statement for discussion was:

‘School uniforms should be required.’

The children formed their own opinion and joined FOR and AGAINST sides. They worked with their peers to come up with reasons to back up their opinion and present them to the opposing group.
