Highlights of the week 28 Feb 2020


The main highlight of my week was the Sharing of Learning for Parents on Thursday. The class made me really proud. Even though we only rehearsed this week, they did a brilliant job, speaking clearly, dancing and singing well. For a wee school Banton makes a lot of noise.

We shared our news films about the Scottish Wars of Independence. For a first try at a large project using iMovie and a green screen the class did really well. Better than their research or ICT skills was the way the pupils worked together. Last weeks, mind-maps show the skills we used (I’ll add more to that post next week)

The movie turned out to be a bit big to show on the blog but I think the parents enjoyed watching.

At maths time the pupils continue to astonish me with their mental maths. Some of the p4 and 5s in particular really aim high. All of the pupils are really making progress with their number talks and explain how they ‘do’ mental maths.

We are looking forward to World Book day next week.

  1. It truly was a fabulous piece of work that pupils demonstrated at the shared learning event. The videos where brilliant and I am in awe of the skills our pupils have used to achieve this.

    Great dancing by all, including our families having a go, and our great singers, reciters and our piper.
