A busy week in Room 5! ๐Ÿ˜

We have been really enjoying learning our times tables. We have started with the 2 and are now beginning to also look at the 5 and 10 times tables. We are becoming quick at our mental recall and are also enjoying interactive tables games on the iPads. Some of us even went head-to-head with the teacher which was fun! ๐Ÿ˜Š

We have been learning all about life in the past through our topic, ‘The Dazzling Decades’. This week we learned about 70s music. This was the era when the genre Disco became popular. We listened to famous 70s songs such as ‘A B C’ by The Jackson 5 and Abba’s ‘Dancing Queen’. We also learned 70s dance moves which had funny names such as The Chicken Dance. ๐Ÿ˜

We had a super time on Tuesday at our Open Day. We were excellent tour guides, showing our families around the school and classroom. We would like to thank everyone for coming. It was great to have you in the classroom and we hope you enjoyed your visit to Room 5. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ˜

Room 4

We worked hard to make delicious fruit kebabs and learned that eating healthy is one aspect of how we can keep our body healthy. We also learned that fitness was another way to keep our body healthy. The boys and girls enjoyed participating in various sporting activities, especially the ones where we got to see all our adults! In class we did daily yoga as well.

Have a lovely long weekend,

Room 7 round up

This week we continue our money topic and learning to recognise and order different coins and use them to pay for items, we also revised time – o’clock and half past times. During our Limelight music session we all got to play a Djembe drum of our own which was very fun, we practised making loud and soft sounds and even created beats that sounded like rainfall. On Monday we took part in a special assembly which unveiled the ‘mystery box’ which has arrived in Newton Farm. We had already written about what we thought could be inside, from a telephone box, rabbit hutch to giant carrots and rectangular monsters our ideas were super inventive! The mystery item turned out to be a book vending machine and we will soon learn how we can earn special golden tokens which will allow us to choose a book of our own! In Literacy we focussed on learning our common words using the LaSaCaWaC method, the children also continue to learn lots of interesting facts from our non-fiction texts. The class also had lots of fun in our Amazonia role play area this week. For Science, we looked at appropriate clothing required for different climates and weathers.


  • Pupils are off school tomorrow (Friday 27th May) and next week (Thursday 2nd/Friday 3rd June)
  • Next Wednesday (1st June) will be a dress up/down day to celebrate the Queen’s jubilee, pupils can come in their fanciest party clothes or their favourite dress down clothes, you could even wear something red, blue or white to match the flag of Great Britain.

๐Ÿ‘ Inspired Art in Room 21 ๐ŸŽจ

Room 21 are currently reading ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ by Onjali Q. Raรบf as part of our term 4 topic, War and Conflict. One of the chapters in the book is called ‘The Boy with the Lion Eyes’ so we started to think about the things refugees might experience in their home country. We were inspired to create these beautiful, but quite emotional eyes that show the war and conflict a refugee might see.

This Week in Room 2

We have had an amazing week in Room 2!

We were so excited to go on our school trip on Thursday. Please check Google classroom for some photos of our trip if you haven’t spotted them.ย  We had such a brilliant time!

This week in literacy we have been learning about the “ee” sound – ask me to think of some words with our new sound in it.

In maths, we have been continuing to explore money.ย  We have been looking at the value of different coins and created some wonderful rubbings of coins.ย  Have a look at some of our pictures below.


We have also started to learn about the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations in preparation for our Jubilee party next week. We learned all about the Trouping of the Colours and recreated the flyover with our own air force!

Thank you so much for all the parents who came to see our class on Monday.ย  It was so lovely to be able to share the children’s work and our classroom with you. Thank you so much for your support throughout the year.ย  We are so proud of everyone in room 2.

Room 13

What a fun week we have had in Room 13.

We have been independently researching facts about an animal of our choice and used this to write a non-chronological report. ย Mrs Webber was very impressed with our finished products!

We have been learning about time in Numeracy and telling the time in intervals of 5 mins.

We had a jam packed health week taking part in a variety of things which culminated in our sporting activities on Friday! We had so much fun โ˜บ๏ธ

The Mystery Box!

What an exciting morning we had yesterday here at Newton Farm PS!

For the last two weeks, a mysterious box has been sitting in the hallway and lots of us had a go at guessing the contents. Is it a statue? Or a rabbit hut? Maybe it’s a blow up giraffe? Or Shrek’s toilet?

In a special assembly yesterday morning, all was revealed! Newton Farm Primary School now has it’s very own special book vending machine!

We had a special raffle for all of our pupils who guessed what was in the box. Three lucky winners got a golden token and chose a book from the vending machine. They were so excited!

Thank you to our Reading Ambassadors who helped unveil the book vending machine. We would also like to say a huge “thank you” to Mrs Robinson for all of her work in sourcing and organising the vending machine and to our fantastic Parent Councilย  for their contribution towards it. We really appreciate it!

Jubilee Celebrations

Next Wednesday (1st June) we are planning on having a Jubilee Celebration here in school. We are going to have class parties in the afternoon with juice and snacks.

Classes will be making bunting to decorate the school and might even make crowns to wear!

It is going to be a dress down or dress up day, so everyone can decide whether they wear their fancy clothes, tiaras or best hats – ย or even their jeans, joggers and t-shirts!

We hope everyone has a fun day next Wednesday!

P3 Kelvingrove Art Gallery Trip

Last Tuesday (17th May 2022), Room 10 along with Room 11, Mrs Robinson, Miss Gajree, Mrs Keenan, Miss Laird, Miss Higgins and Mrs Ferguson all visited Kelvingrove Art Gallery for our school trip.

We had the opportunity to further enhance our knowledge of The Ancient Egyptians through this trip. For our first activity, the pupils were given a pencil and booklet to draw and record important information about The Ancient Egyptians. The pupils were then spilt into two groups and were given the chance to look at The Ancient Egyptians artefacts on display as well as taking a closer look at, passing some artefacts around in a circle and listening to what each artefact was.

In class, the pupils have used IPADS to translate their name and chosen words into Hieroglyphics (Picture Writing). They have also used this writing to write chosen Spelling words/ words from their group text. These are on display and we cannot wait for you all to see them at our Open Evening this Wednesday (25th May 2022).
