Room 6 IDL work

This week the children have done lots of interesting and active work, learning about the Human Body.  In Art, we made our own ‘Funnybones’ skeletons, using artstraws.

We used books and videos to research the skeleton and labelled all the major bones, using the technical names! Watch out for our bones challenge in the next week as well as naming our very own resident skeleton.

We moved on to look at the major organs within our bodies and had lots of fun finding out about where they are and what they do. We then placed them in the correct places using an organ apron.

We then exercised our bodies outdoors, enjoying fresh air and were learning new playground games that the children can use independently on their breaktimes.

We are looking forward to going with the pupils from Room 13 to the Sports Development Festival this term.

Primary 7 Road Safety Performance

Primary 7 thoroughly enjoyed their Road Safety performance yesterday afternoon.

The performance emphasised the importance of staying safe when walking to school.  The characters in the play showed how easy it was to give in to peer pressure and act silly near traffic.  The children soon realised how silly behaviour can have a huge impact on their lives – for all the wrong reasons.

Why not ask us what we’ve learned?

Dancing in Rm 17!

As part of book week, we have been learning about the classic story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.  In PE, we were working in groups to make up dances to the ‘Oompa Loompa’ song.  We had a lot of fun creating our dances and enjoyed performing them to the class.

Room 6 Burns Supper

Last week Room 6 completed their interdisciplinary topic on Burns by having a Burns Supper and Scottish food tasting session.

The children tasted a range of Scottish foods including Haggis, neeps and tatties, tablet, shortbread, oatcakes and smoked salmon all washed down with a wee dram (of Irn Bru). The children recorded which of the foods they enjoyed and those they disliked. There was singing, dancing and a cheers to Robert Burns!

 

Room 6 Learning Update!

We have been learning all about Robert Burns in preparation for Burns Day on the 25th January. We have been learning some poems and songs and recorded our early practice of Auld Lang Syne. A special mention to Ellie M Scott and Jack Montgomery who did outstanding singing during these lessons.

Due to lots of other school events we took our gym lesson back to the classroom and did some good old fashioned circuit training. With a combination of Jumping Jacks, Lunges, Sit Ups and Aerobics we are continuing to work on becoming healthier and fitter individuals.

In IDL we have been exploring food chains and writing captions. In Literacy here are some examples of our dictation practice with a partner.
