We have been works on a block of media, with a focus on Christmas adverts. This week we are working on ‘Moz the Monster’. Yesterday, we used similes to describe him, then created our own monsters. Today, we used a Venn diagram to compare Moz to a variety of other well known monsters.
The enterprise committee have had a busy afternoon making crafts to sell at our Christmas Fayre. Come along on Friday 7th December to buy some of our amazing crafts!
We researched a celebrity of our choice in preparation for writing about them tomorrow. Here we are using the iPads to find out important information.
The children of primary 4-7 were very lucky to receive a visit from the author Gill Arbuthnott on Friday. She spoke about her new book A Secret Diary of the First World War and the children had the opportunity to buy this book and have it signed by Gill.
Gill shared lots of interesting information about the main character in the book and told us about lots of things she learned herself whilst researching for this book. We really enjoyed her visit !
A reminder that the book fair will take place in the dining hall on Monday 5th of November for P5, P6 and P7 children.
A selection of books suitable for all ages will be available for you to view and purchase if you wish.
Parents are invited to come along at the appropriate times to assist their child to make a choice. If you are unable to come, the class teacher will assist your child.
Our JRSO officers spoke with confidence at our Assembly highlightling European Day without a Road Death 19/9/18. They also gave a quick run down of the exciting things they have coming up. They are starting their Friday Club for interested pupils working on the word search competition on the JRSO Website and they will be collecting entries for the Road Safety Calendar Competition next week.
This week, we are focusing on 3-D objects. We used cubes to create a variety of 3-D objects and visualised them front the front, top and side. We were able to draw our viewpoints in our jotters.
Today, we started our first IDL topic in Primary 6. We showed great interest in China and decided we would like to learn more about the country. We started researching it using the iPads and created a fact file with our partner. We will then use the fact file and other research during Taught Writing to create an information piece.
Primary 6 have worked extra hard to create their own businesses and to work within a budget to source their products. After all their hard work, they were able to sell their products today and definitely made a profit. They would like to say a huge thank you to all pupils and parents that supported them and hope they enjoy their products.
