Tribal Art by P5

Primary 5 have been doing the Rainforest as their topic and have completed some excellent art work. Below is an animoto video of some of their tribal art. I think this is something to be proud of!! The video takes a few seconds to begin after pressing play, it looks like it isn’t going to work but it does. Be patient it is worth it to see primary 5’s fantastic work!! 😀

The Two Miss Dochertys

On Wednesday 2nd March we had a visit from Miss Docherty’s sister who is a teacher at Golfhill Primary. She is also called Miss Docherty and we thought that this was going to be really strange, but it wasn’t.

Miss Docherty brought a lesson for us to do on the smartboard. We had to match up the four layers of the rainforest and use the rubber to reveal the answer. The easiest layer to remember is the emergent layer because it has the tallest trees and it also has the sky in it. We enjoyed doing this task.

Smartboard Lesson with Miss Docherty

After this Miss Docherty talked to us about the different layers and then we did an annotated rainforest diagram, showing each of the layers with a description of each layer beside it.

Primary 6 at Golfhill Primary learned about the rainforest last term and raised money to sponsor 5 endangered animals. Miss Docherty brought the mascots along for our class to meet.

We also had a chance to look at some of the Primary 6 personal projects and we thought that they were fantastic.

We would like to say thankyou to Miss Docherty and hope that she will come back and visit us soon.
