Autumn Activities

We have had another busy week in Room 14. We started this week by celebrating Halloween. We had some snacks and a drink in class and had fun during the Primary 4 parade before dancing to a few spooky songs in the gym hall. Your costumes were great.

We used our Halloween emotion pumpkins and the orange cog to think about the different feelings characters had in my favourite book, The Lorax. We were also inspired to write our own stories after a visit from our reading ambassadors, Jackson and Poppy.

In Maths, the Cylinders group enjoyed lessons with Miss Anderson about Shape. The Cubes have been working on their ability to add in columns.

Today we went around the school grounds collecting leaves, stones and twigs. We looked at some pieces of Art by Andy Goldsworthy, a British artist, and then had a go at creating our own Land Art. The finished pieces were excellent.

We finished today by having a PE session outside on the pitches.  We are working on our racquet skills during badminton and tennis sessions.

I hope you all have a great weekend. See you on Monday.

P6/7 Learning Showcase

November 3, 2023 by Miss Napier | 0 comments

On Thursday 2nd November, we held our learning showcase in our classroom. We had four different stations for our parents and guests to visit. One station was for STEM/WWII in which we were designing our own Spitfire/Lancaster Bombers. We had a ‘Fun 31’ station where we had some of our self made mini golf stations for everyone to try out. One station was for Literacy where we wrote our own fifty word challenge and played some of our literacy/word games. The final station was for maths and numeracy where we had some of our place value stations out and some of our multiplication games to play.

We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to come along. We loved seeing you all and being able to share our learning!
