Making our learning come alive in Sea Life

Listen to the fun we had in Sea Life and look at the excitement on our wee faces.    We thought you would like to see our new friend ” The Ray”.  He made us laugh!  It was such fun seeing our learning about our topic come alive!

P2 Creating orchestral masterpieces

On Friday, we spent some time in our music room choosing and investigating percussion instruments.  We used our instruments  to create our wonderful piece of  music.  Symbols helped us know when to play.

Green Cross Code

P3/4 have been working hard on road safety using a variety of online and practical resources.  We have been finishing off our work this week by using our very own (well, borrowed!) puffin crossing. We had great fun in the playground chalking a road and demonstrating our ability to cross safely using the Green Cross Code!  We even took turns at using the trolleys as ‘traffic’!

P3/4 Springtime Nature Walk

This afternoon the intrepid adventurers in p3/4L ventured deep into the North Lanarkshire Countryside looking for signs of Spring.  We were looking for blossom, flowers, rich green plants and baby animals.  How do you think we did?  These photographs taken by the children represent some of the signs of spring we found!

GIST Lorry visits Primary 5

Today the GIST lorry came to visit our school and P5 had the opportunity to learn more about Road Safety.

We all had the chance to listen to a PowerPoint about ways to stay safe, especially when it comes to lorries being in the road. It was really interesting to learn about the stopping distance needed by big lorries and how heavy they can be.

Everyone then had the chance to sit inside the cab in the fron of the lorry to allow pupils to see what it’s like from the drivers perspective and exactly what the driver can and can’t see.

Pupils were shown the actual stopping distance needed by the drivers and even the teacher was amazed at how the view is restricted right infront of you when you’re so high up from the road.

When Mrs Weir sat in the front of the cab, 13 pupils stood in front of the lorry and here’s what she could see…not one of them!!!

It was only because of the mirror at the front of the lorry that Mrs Weir could actually see that there was anyone there.

(At all times the lorry was not running and was unable to move due to special equipment infront of the tyres)

 

Everyone really enjoyed the session and learned some valuable information from the 2 instructors who came to see us.
