Primary 6 goes to Hollywood

And the Oscar goes to……………..Base 12!

P6 have made a fantastic start to their new ‘Movies’ topic by celebrating the Oscars.  They created Oscar portraits by using chalk to create the Oscar silhouette.  One of our very own pupils suggested adding glitter to represent the glitz and glamour of the evening.  Well done boys and girls you have created Oscar worthy portraits.

P4 Cops and Robbers

Base 9 have been learning about cops and robbers.  On Tuesday they enjoyed a visit from the community police, PC Lauren and Stephanie.  They got to try out the handcuffs, try on the police hats, got their finger prints taken and even got to sit in the police car!  Some of them were even lucky enough to put on the blue lights and siren.

Primary 6 Step Back in Time

Base 12 recently visited Summerlee Heritage Centre to take part in a Victorian workshop.  The workshop allowed the boys and girls to become historians for the day and share all that they had learned from their recent Victorian topic in class.  The boys and girls were able to handle some real Victorian items, write using chalk and ink, play with some Victorian toys and even dressed the part as a Victorian.

They all had a fantastic time, well done Primary 6.
