P1- Visit from Mrs Zokas

The children enjoyed a very interesting visit from Mrs Zokas today as part of our People Who Help Us topic. She told the children a little about the organisation ‘Maggie’s’ which she works for and all about the wonderful fundraising work she does for them.  The children got to experience giving money to charity in the collection tub and had to guess how many sweeties were in the jar. The winner got to take the jar home! We had a great afternoon! Thank you Mrs Zokas 🙂

P3 Science Forces

Today Primary 3 brought in a push or a pull toy from home to sort. We realised that lots of our toys use push and pull forces to move in different directions or a different way. We had great discussion sorting some pictures of everyday tasks into whether they are a push or a pull. Some of us still argued that they could be both! We couldn’t prove them wrong. Great discussion and thinking Primary 3!

P1- Visit from Mrs McGown

Today we invited Mrs McGown to come to our class and tell us all about her job and how she helps people. She has been a janitor in our school for 19 years and the children couldn’t believe all the things that she does every day to keep everyone safe and happy. The school would not be the same without her and the children are very lucky to have someone so hardworking and caring  in their school.

P6 Open Event

In Primary 6 we created a ‘character from the boots up’.  Each group chose a number and inside their bag was a pair of shoes.  The task  for each pair or trio was to decide who might own these shoes and create a mind map describing the characters: appearance, personality, fears…. After playtime each child drew their character and wrote a story using this as the main character.

P2 & P6 World Book Day

The theme of World Book Day was to share a story so I set a challenge to my Primary 6 class.

In trios choose a short story to read to a group of Primary 2 pupils.  After listening to 3 stories each the P2’s voted who read them the best story.

The Primary 6 pupils took this challenge very seriously and it was fabulous listening in on their storytelling  📚 and questioning skills. Also thank you to the Primary 2 class It was great fun  that morning and you were all stars ⭐️ 🌟 ⭐️ with excellent listening skills.
