We are learning to make ‘Friendly 10s’ during Number Talks. We can break up smaller numbers, fill one of the boxes and add on the rest!
This week Base 5 have been learning how music can represent different animals. First we listened to pieces from Carnival of the Animals and identified which animal it was portraying based on pitch and pace. We then spent time in our co-operative groups composing our own music based on different animals and presented our finished piece to the rest of the class.
On Friday 3rd March Bases 8 and 10 had a visit from the Generation Science Team. The workshop was titled Body Builders- The body, bones and organ show. Dr Watson and Nurse Treat It Better, along with a variety of characters, showed us why it was so important to look after our bodies and keep in shape. This was done through a fast-past, funny, interactive show which both pupils and staff enjoyed.
On Friday 3rd March, Bases 8 and 10 had a visit from Claire Doyle from Muller Dairies. She spoke to the children about her job as an accounts manager and a little about the company itself and the company’s values. The children had time at the end of her talk to ask some questions which were very interesting!
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.
Yesterday, Monday 27th February, Base 6- Primary 2, had great fun being scientists. They were learning about different forces during a Generation Science workshop called Ready, Teddy, Go!
