Primary 2 and Primary 4 Multi Sports Clubs

Hi everyone,

There has been an over whelming response for the multi sports after school clubs which means some children have not been successful in getting a place for this block, however, the hope is that another block will take place.

All children who returned slips to me now have either a successful or unsuccessful slip in their school bag.

Thank you,

Mrs Cowie (DHT)

Room 4


After a lovely week off the boys and girls in room 4 have settled back into our class routines quickly. I loved hearing about all of their adventures during the break.

In literacy this week, we consolidated the sounds we know so far. Our focus was on the ay, ea and ow sound and we completed various active tasks.

In ICT, we explored Glow and used the QR code to access the website. We can now use our glow login cards that contain our username and passwords to log in.

During PE we continued with our ball skills and developed the skill of passing. We focused on performing a bounce and chest pass.

The boys and girls enjoyed using the instruments this week in music. There was lots of musical talent in room 4! We focused on finding and creating the beat within a song.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Love and Room 4

Birthday Fun

We had some birthdays this week so just had to have a party with chocolate cake to celebrate.  Everyone enjoyed dancing and singing Happy Birthday.  Our focus in maths this week has been time and we have been learning some words with the qu and x sound.  A busy week – well done boys and girls.

Quel temps fait-il?

IMG_2205


Primary 5/6 have been learning how to talk about the weather in French.  Every week the children are asked ‘what is the weather like today?’ In order for them to answer confidently, we revised all the different types of weather and worked on our pronunciation.
The children enjoyed making weather wheels to help them practice and then used more vocabulary to build sentences about the weather in Scotland. For example:

’En Ecosse en hiver normalement il fait froid et il fait pleut.’

In Scotland in winter normally it’s cold and it’s raining.

Some of the children felt confident enough to read their sentences to the rest of the class.
