Hello everyone, a great start for all our new primary ones.
We have had such a busy time and have made lots of new friends already. We are very good at following class rules and understand that we need to keep safe in school.
This week we learned about writing a and s as well as 0 and 1.
We went to the gym with Mrs Boyle and we had outdoor learning fun on the playground equipment on Friday.
Primary 4b (b being for brilliant : ) )
Have enjoyed being back at school and learning about citizenship. We have learned about Health and safety, Division and in P.E. we have started learning about tennis. In R.E we discussed how God created us in his image and we are made up of a mind, body and soul. In Art we created our own personal minions and also typed up our descriptions that we wrote during our writing lesson on Microsoft Word.
Next week we are excited about starting football training.
We hope all the pupils, parents and staff have had a wonderful summer.
A great big welcome to our new Primary 1 pupils and the best of luck this year to all returning pupils.
It’s going to be a fantastic year.
This week was digital learning week. We had great fun using Bee Bots with the digital leaders. It was such a fun workshop. We looked at how digital technology has changed over the years. Mrs Boyle told us about what kind of technology there was in the 1980s and 90s and how it’s changed so much over the years.
We did a STEM challenge this week which was called the Roly Poly challenge. We used paper plates and toilet rolls or kitchen roll tubes to make a wheel. We then videod these rolling in the corridor to see how far they would roll. Most of them worked very well!
We have also been working on our flower bed in the Field of Dreams which was full of weeds. With a bit of hard work and effort from us all we have made it look good again. 6F608C2E-E1B7-479C-BD58-DE8AA6A48AE3
This week we have learned lots and got to enjoy lots of time outside because the weather has been beautiful.
We have been learning to make ‘Roly Poly’ toys as part of digital week. We used toilet rolls and paper plates and lots of pretty colours to decorate them. As part of our topic we looked at the Spanish artist Salvador Dali, and we drew portraits of ourselves and added moustaches to look just like him. We now know his most famous painting was ‘The persistence of memory’.
Also, we had a scavenger hunt outside and had lots of fun. We tended to our flower bed preparing it for planting our seeds. As part of numeracy, we took our metre sticks and measured things in the Field of dreams.
