Newton Farm Primary School and Nursery Class

Room 13 Week Ending 25.02.24



For Numeracy last week, we have moved onto telling the time on an analogue clock. We have been reading o’clock, half and quarter to/past times and then we had a go at making given times on mini clocks or by drawing the clock hands on our smart pals.


For Writing, we wrote our invitations for P3’s showcase on Thursday. We wrote why we want our adults to come and gave at least two reasons. We would be delighted to see you if you can make it. I’ve already told the children that my parents are farmers and could never make any school event like this. Any child whose adults can’t make it can partner with up for the below activities.

At the showcase we will perform a short drama about the Waverley which include a couple of songs and some pirate jokes. After that, there will be some optional tasks for children and adults to complete together. These include:

  1. Reading – read the book we’re currently working on and design a new front cover.
  2. STEM – building challenges with LEGO, magnets or art straws.
  3. Maths – make the time on mini clocks partner work.
  4. Art/Writing – look at the picture. Either draw the next scene or write a paragraph about what might happen next. This will probably be Harry Potter based as that is our current Class Novel.
  5. Technology – create an algorithm (set of instructions) for a partner to draw a crazy character.
  6. Jotters – look at any work our class are proud of from our jotters.


Our school trip is this Friday to the Glasgow Science Centre with Room 11. It will be a packed lunch on the day and we’ll send out further details later on this week. With any luck we might see the Waverley if it is docked there on the day.

Have a great week. All the best.

Mr Dalling.
