We have been working on building friendships and co-operation. We went outside to learn some new team games that we can play during break times. We have also been continuing to do our Race to Rio laps, running, jogging and walking for 15 minutes per session.
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!
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 really enjoying our new topic and are looking forward to sharing our learning at our class assembly on the 11th March.
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.
At the start of term Room 5 created their very own new year resolution. The main theme which emerged was the desire to get fitter and healthier. As a class we have been discussing how we can do this by changing our diet and exercising more regularly. This wasn’t enough however… Room 5 wanted to make sure this was having an impact. We decided as a class to carry out a fitness test and record our scores. We will repeat this fitness test at the end of term and hopefully our scores increase! Check out some of our photos.
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.
