Today we had a terrific visit to Purves Puppets in Biggar. The boys and girls loved watching how the puppeteers brought the puppets to life. We sat in a small traditional puppet theatre to watch the story of Tinderbox. The boys and girls were captured with the puppets, lighting and the theatre. The dog puppets were very cool!
The boys and girls in Room 12 and 13 have been very busy this week learning lots about a healthy balanced diet and the sugar content in drinks. Milkshake was a real shocker! Please look out for the “Rethink Your Drink” display at school entrance coming soon. We have been very active in and around our school too. Daily mile has certainly kept us fit.
Today the boys and girls had a great time swiping their fob at a beat box on our daily mile. We collected lots of points and enjoyed walking in our local community. Many thanks to the parents and grandparents helping us today.
today. We look forward to doing this again on Thursday morning.
The boys and girls have had a very creative week in Room12. They have enjoyed a range of active learning tasks from the Easter story on our ActivPanel, creating their own personal painted egg, making an Easter chick/bunny box, card making, outdoor egg roll and the Easter bonnet/ hat parade in the gym hall. The Easter bonnets made at home were fantastic! Thank you. Hope you have a great Easter weekend.
This week we have been learning outside in the school playground and garden making minibeast hotels. The children had great fun and enjoyed selecting different materials to suit different habitats e.g. stones, bark and twigs, green leaves and grass. I wonder what we will find next week!
The boys and girls in Primary 3 had a terrific time at Wishaw Sports Centre today. They enjoyed a carousel of indoor and outdoor activities such as rugby, football, tennis, dance and taekwondo. Well done boys and girls!
We had a fantastic time at Book Week. We loved reading the book “Jack and the Beanstalk.” Chloe enjoyed acting out the story with her peers and performing on the stage. Kelsie loved making the beanstalk out of a selection of materials. Kayleigh enjoyed learning about the parts of a bean and planting her very own bean. Tommy loved making his very own magic bean out of clay. Sophie was very keen to use her measuring skills to measure the beanstalks and place them in the correct order. Evan loved reading his book for the Readathon. We had a fabulous week and participated in lots of active activities.book week photos
