🦺 Be Bright Day 24th November 🦺

November 24, 2023 by Miss Napier | 0 comments

Well… Our Be Bright Day as been an incredible success! It’s been amazing to see so many of our pupils in super bright and reflective clothing to raise awareness of staying safe and seen in the darker months. The JRSOs and WOW ambassadors have been very impressed with the effort that everyone has gone to. Thank you parents and carers with your help in this too!

The JRSOs have been visiting all pupils at their assemblies this week to talk about road safety and staying safe and seen too. They’ve put in a huge amount of effort, along with the WOW ambassadors, to organise the event.

Each class has now had their brightest winners announced and the brightest staff have been selected as well. I think you’ll agree they look dazzling 🤩 These winners received their goody bags and certificates today and came together for a big photo.

Every pupil in the school also received a reflective pack/keyring to take home, courtesy of our fabulous parent council. A huge thank you to you for helping to make our Be Bright day an even bigger success.

Our Week in Room 21

November 24, 2023 by Miss Napier | 0 comments

This week in room 21 we completed our Christmas craft which were our cute little gonks! Make sure you come along to the fayre on Saturday 25th to buy some!

For our WW2 topic learning this week, we took part in the Dynamo Challenge. We had to work in 3 teams (land, sea and air) to consider how we could rescue the troops that were stranded on Dunkirk Beach. This was from the view point of being officers or officials in the navy, army or air force. It was really tricky trying to think of the best thing to do that would save the most amount of men.

On Friday we celebrated Be Bright Day. We got given reflective keyrings from the parent council and the brightest winner from our class was chosen. It’s been a busy but fun week!

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!

Our Week in Room 21

October 6, 2023 by Miss Napier | 0 comments

We’ve had an interesting and busy week in Room 21.

A high school teacher from Uddingston Grammar came in and we made poems with her and some students also came with her.

We learned that we are going to be entering the BBC’s 500 word story competition. We had a look at previous winners with Miss Napier and thought about some ideas for our planning next week.

In science, we started looking at the human eyes. Here’s some examples of what we learned: Your iris is the coloured part that goes around your pupil, the there is actually a hole in your eye and the optic nerve is the nerve that runs to your brain and processes what your eyes see. Did you know, the cornea in your eyes processes things upside down but our retina’s flip it back over? Amazing!

We were also doing French with Miss Gray and were creating our own French characters. We’re going to find out what we’re doing with them next week. We also watched a video about world leaders and their religion, taking notes about their Golden Rules.

During assembly, the maths, reading and modern languages ambassadors were chosen. In class we also voted for our pupil council and rights respecting reps. Well done to Harry, Ollie, Evan, Pippa and Brooke who secured some of these roles!

‘Fun 31’ in Room 21

September 15, 2023 by Miss Napier | 1 Comment

On Wednesday this week we got new games and puzzles so we can do ‘Fun 31.’

If you’re wondering what ‘Fun 31’ is, it is a time in the week where we get to have fun and play games with our friends in class. The number 31 is because article 31 on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is ‘Rest, Play, Culture and Arts.’

Fun 31 is so much fun and we got to use building straws, complete puzzles, try balancing games and tactical games. Take a look at the photos to see Fun 31 in action!
