Autumn Activities

This week in Primary C we have been investigating the initial signs of Autumn. As part of our morning routine we sing about the weather and explore its extremities. We love it when it’s sunny or windy. Adding shimmery, crunchy leaves into the mix has put smiles on faces. We have a wonderful seasonal wall taking shape but more on that shortly! We can’t give too much away 🍁 

The children have kindly sent in pictures from home of them taking part In our weekly challenges. Keep them coming as we love the feedback and we like to display the results on our wall.  All homework set is linked to what we are working on in class so your enthusiasm really means the world to us.

 

 

Primary C Toy Stories

This week we have been super busy building world famous landmarks with our friend Mr Potato head. We have painted with cars and loved watching the effects that followed.

Later in the week we had a bounce off at rebound! I think jumping beans were served at lunch!

The magic carpet has been well used as we chose a musical program that activated with movement. What a fun week. Look out for new homework loaded in bags from today. Please remember to return  any outstanding homework by Thursday.

Construction in Primary D.

Our class mascot, Buzz, arrived in class this morning with a bag full of construction fun! We played a Mr Potato Head game and Stephen was the winner. Afterwards, we had the mission of using bricks to build an iconic world landmark. The boys chose to build The Burj Khalifa in Dubai. We had lots of fun with Mr Potato Head today and can’t wait to see what fun activities Buzz will bring for us tomorrow.

Toy Story IDL

This week we have explored our IDL topic that is due to launch. To Infinity and beyond!! Its TOY STORY!!! The children loved the big reveal. We chose our favourite songs, some video clips and got messy during our art lesson. The big favourite was our bingo and matching pairs game. Look inside bags this weekend as our new homework initiative has also launched in Primary C. Every week there will be 2 fun activities to complete at home that are linked to our class work and IDL. We cannot wait to hear how you get on. Can you spot which one of our pupils has earned the official photographer role in class? Loves a selfie.

Fun in Primary C

We have had an excellent second week here in Primary C. The children and staff have been having so much fun throughout the day setting up a lovely welcome time, exploring many sensory items, being outside on the bikes and lots of fun on the trampoline for Rebound Therapy.

We have also been adding wee clues in our classroom to what our topic is going to be, check out classroom door…..

 

Welcome Back

Hello from a very happy classroom. Primary C have been super enthusiastic and eager to explore  as we get settled into our new routine. This week has been all about discovery. We have enjoyed time getting to know each other, as well as familiarising with some of our firm favourites. We enjoyed textured sensory play, lights, music and Rebound therapy. Mr Potato Head came too. Wonder what he’s doing there?! Could he be IDL related? Find out more next week.

So great to be back with our wonderful pupils. Full steam ahead!

 

Warmest wishes from the staff team.
