Good morning everyone.  Tomorrow sees the start of a new month – the last month before the school holidays.  Let’s crack on and get some more learning in before our well-earned summer holidays.

Keep being active especially in the lovely weather. You might like to try some new ideas for activities through the Sustrans website.  They are the folk who organise Big Pedal . You will need to register and get their newsletter but they do lots of good things.Sustrans outside in. Don’t forget the Renfrewshire Leisure Online Olympics – we are doing really well – winning is possible. Renfrewshire Leisure Online Olympics

Keep working on spelling ,reading and times tables the way we do in class.  More topic things this week including science weather experiments – if you are interested.

For the next few weeks, there are some art ideas.  Please don’t worry if you don’t have paints etc just use what you have at home and have fun.

We start a new class novel tomorrow – The Sheep-Pig by Dick King Smith.  I hope you can join the team meetings at 12 each day to check-in and enjoy the new characters from this book.

Here’s to another good week. Success! – Cat & Craft

Good morning everyone.  Tomorrow starts another week of home learning and I can’t stress enough how pleased I am with your work and all the efforts everyone has made to complete/upload work while coping with a variety of home/family situations.  It is all very much appreciated.  As I’ve said before, if you have difficulties or you have other things to attend to, there is no problem with work being submitted at your convenience or just a wee post to say “we’ve done that at home. ”

This week  and next are only 4 days because of the long May weekend.

Choose a favourite physical activity to do each day. Remember you could try this  – Renfrewshire Leisure Olympics – weekly challenges.

Please try to make time to take part in this week’s sumdog contest – it finishes on Thursday.

Here’s to another good week. As we’re off on Friday, Friday check-in people can do that on Thursday.  “See ” you at 12 each day.

Let me know if there is anything I can help you with.

Good morning everyone. I hope you’ve enjoyed the holidays as much as you could.

Back to our new routine this week. Choose some kind of physical activity to start your day – Joe Wicks, Go noodle, Zumba, cosmic yoga or something that you enjoy.

You could spell your name through exercises –


Keep working on your spelling and reading.

Make sure you have plenty of breaks especially when the weather is lovely.

See you at 12:00 every day. Here’s to another good week.

Hi everyone.

Hope you’re all doing well – staying safe and staying home.

This is a short week for lessons. We will be on Teams on Monday and Tuesday. I will be on at 12:00 both days so you can check in on either day this week. Wednesday and Thursday are In Service days and Friday is a holiday.

Keep up your daily fitness.  You could try Zumba kids this week. Feel free to choose any exercise/physical activity that you like.  It is important to keep an active/healthy body as well as an active mind through lessons.

spelling – sion words

reading – choose a Big Cats or Oxford Owl. Continue to use Rolling through the text to talk about the book. I will post an announcement to remind about login details on teams and mention other reading resources you might like to explore.

I know you’ll all have lots of things planned for the days we’re not on teams but just in case you’re looking for something to do, here are a couple of ideas

– countryside-classroom-passport – this contains lots of different activities you could work through/pick and choose to do with farming/food/countryside

farm colouring sheets and puzzles

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete – How do you think you did this week on Friday.  It is good to know what the children are feeling about activities. I will put that on every Friday (not this week – its too short).

Here’s to another good week.  Keep up the good work. See you tomorrow.

Hi everyone. I hope you’re enjoying the lovely weather this weekend.

Tomorrow starts another week and I hope you feel we are getting into a wee bit of a routine/structure.

Please carry on starting your day with something active.  Remember it doesn’t have to be fast – you could try some mindful yoga.

We will continue to meet at 12 o’clock every day. Monday, Wednesday and Friday will be check- ins. Tuesday and Thursday will be class novel.

Spelling and reading – as before when we did these for homework, you have all week to complete spelling tasks and read and discuss a book.  Please don’t feel you have to do it all on a Monday.  A little and often is best with spelling and reading.  Having said that, at the moment it is whatever makes life a bit easier for yourselves.

Remember please to chat with an adult about stretching words, how many syllables and what kind of word they are – noun, adjective, verb, adverb and now we know about prepositions.

Last week I posted the details of how to log on to Big Cats and choose a book.  This week I will remind you how to access that and introduce Oxford Owls books.   For children who are beyond lime colour band it offers more challenging books.

Last week this was the only blog post I put on and that seemed to work ok.  The rest of the information was just on teams in assignments.  Let me know if you think that is ok. It’s hard to know sitting here at home exactly what you folk are experiencing. I know sometimes people have difficulty uploading completed work to teams. Please don’t spend ages trying to do this (it can be very frustrating). You are welcome to email me work or just post on teams – “that’s ——— finished all his/her tasks today” and mark tasks as handed in.

Have a good week and keep in touch please. If there’s anything I can help you with please just ask.

Bishopton Pedal 2020

Today should have been the start of the Big Pedal walking/cycling/scooting national competition that we all enjoy so much each year.

This year we’re turning it into the Bishopton Pedal.

As part of your daily exercise, we would like you to try to cycle, scoot or walk every day for the next 2 weeks.  Please make sure that bikes and scooters are safe for you to use and that you wear helmets on your bike just as you would if you were at school. If you do not have access to a safe place to cycle, scoot or walk please just carry on with all the other daily fitness ideas provided by your teachers.

Remember all your family are welcome to join in too.

Be safe and have fun.
