This Week in Room 2

We have had another wonderful week of learning.

Have a look at some of our activities – we are so proud of all the learners in Room 2.

Practising the formation of our new sound C – Fantastic!

Look at these super Ks.

This week we began to add numbers together. We used ladybirds to find the answers.

We are developing our ball skills in P.E.

Having lots of fun during our P.E. warm up.

We are trying very hard to read and write our spelling words – what a fabulous effort!

We enjoy finding and drawing words which start with our new sounds C and K.

Active Literacy – glitter writing to help us practise our letter formation.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas…

What a busy afternoon in P4/5 today. When the class arrived back from lunch a Christmas Tree had appeared in the pod!

The class were told that they were going to be decorating the tree. However, they had to work together to give clear instructions on how to do this 🎄🎄

We had many giggles as the class soon realised that perhaps their instructions were not as clear as they thought they were going to be. Miss Kelly was asked to spread the baubles on the tree so she was spreading a bauble like butter on one of the branches. Miss Napier was asked to wrap the tinsel around the tree, so she wrapped her arms around the tree and left the tinsel where her arms were.

When the class realised they had to be a lot more specific with there instructions we wrote them into our writing jotters as a piece of instructional writing. Once this was completed, the children were able to follow there own instructions to place a bauble on the tree.

Here are some pictures of our finished project, we think it looks amazing!! 🎄🎅

Room 7 Round-up

Another busy week in Room 7, we started off by taking our Numeracy outside and had fun exploring number out in our playground.


On Thursday we took part in a Dinosaurs Live lesson from the National Museum Scotland which was super- we learned about how fossils were formed and even got to look at some dinosaur poo!


Towards the end of the week we had a visitor at our classroom door- a beautiful yellow breasted bird that we later found out was a Grey Wagtail. After doing some research we were able to find out that due to it’s colouring, it was a female bird and that it is quite a rare sighting- red on the RSPB conservation list! We decided to help out our animal friend by making bird feeders out of lard, muesli and bird seed.

Room 9

The boys and girls have worked hard over these past couple of weeks on our transport topic. We made posters to show the different types of transport we know about. We created hot air balloons and wrote about the kinds of things we would expect to see and hear in a hot air balloon. We especially enjoyed making paper aeroplanes then flying them and using a metre stick to measure the distance travelled.

Learning in Room 17

Primary 7 have been getting stuck right into our WW2 topic this week and we have learnt lots of new things about what life was like during the war.

First of all we watched some interviews of men and women who experienced the Clydebank Blitz first hand! We were amazed to discover how close to home Clydebank actually was.

Next – we took some inspiration from our learning and created Clydebank Blitz silhouette art. We used oil pastels and experimented with different blending techniques to create our flame filled sky.

In addition to The Blitz, we have been learning about rationing and how propaganda was used during WW2. We explored the different posters used and focussed on 2 particular ones to help create our own!
