P4-7 Author visit

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 !

School Book Fair

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.

Rations

Room 16 having been learning all about WW1. On Wednesday we had the opportunity to compare and contrast the rations soldiers would have had during WW1 and the rations modern day soldiers have. We even had the opportunity to try out some beans and chicken sausages. Some of us seemed to enjoy the rations more than others.

 

Building a Theme Park

Today the P7s have been given the challenging of designing their own theme park. They have a budget of 4 million pounds to spend but also have very strict building regulations they have to stick to. They are having to use their problem solving skills to complete a first draft of their theme park and use their number skills to work to a strict budget.  They are working together to solve any problems they come across and share any ideas they have. It has been great watching and listening to them during these discussions.
