Enjoy the lovely weather tomorrow and see you on Tuesday!

This week

Good afternoon

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a continued thank you to you and your children.  They have working so hard every day and I thank you for supporting them to do this.  They all seem to have got into really good routines and are so independent!  As always, please email me if you are having any issues you wish to talk about.  I fully understand the pressures just now with homeworking, learning, looking after elderly and shielding relatives along with day to day necessities!

Each day I post assignments/tasks for the children to try to complete.  If they can’t get them all done then please do not worry.  The last thing I want is added pressure and it is not expected they sit at a screen for prolonged lengths of time.  Tasks can carry on to the next day or few days.  Again, if you feel your child is struggling, drop me a wee email.

On Friday we will be having a Teams Meeting at 1.30pm.  This will lead into a Kahoot online fun quiz which the children can take part in if they are free.  We will keep the teams meeting running alongside.  The children should google Kahoot and I will post them a pin code on our team page on Friday morning.  This is all they need to join in.  This should be great fun and other family members are welcome to join in!

As you will have seen yesterday, Bishy’s Got Talent is happening online this year!  Children should send any videos of their talents to Miss McDowall by May 26th.  I can’t wait to see what they produce!


You know where I am if you need anything.  Take care and stay safe.

This week 4/11/20

Good evening everyone.

This is certainly a strange week!  Our 2 days of learning have been quick.  As always, the children have been working so hard.  We have 2 inservice days on Wednesday and Thursday and it is a holiday on Friday.  I do not expect the children to do any work over these days.  This is a chance to chill, enjoy time with family and recharge our batteries.

Next Friday the 15th I thought the children would like to do an online quiz with the rest of the class.  This will be like the quizzes we have all been doing with families.  They will need a pencil and paper.  The questions will come thick and fast to avoid time to google!!!!  Family members are welcome to join in.  It will be at 2pm and I will set team meeting to join.

I hope you all have a lovely few days and I look forward to catching up on Monday.  Stay safe and well.

Mrs Campbell

Internet issues

There seems to be a problem with Teams and Glow this morning.  My home internet is also playing up.  If you can’t access work, don’t worry-continue to do something like reading a book, playing a board game, practising tables, playing in the garden.  Hopefully it will be sorted soon.

P5 Titanic Facts Task

Part 1 You task is to research information about the Titanic. You can take notes in your jotter or on paper. Your information might include:

  • Which company owned the Titanic
  • Where the Titanic was built and by which company, how long did it take from start to finish.
  • Statistics for the Titanic e.g. weight, height, length, number of lifeboats etc
  • Where and when her maiden voyage began
  • Information about the crew
  • Passenger facts: details about the different classes
  • When she sank
  • Any other fascinating facts you can find

You should also complete a sketch of the Titanic in your jotter/ on paper.

Part 2: Using your research you should create a detailed and colourful poster. Please remember your poster should include facts – it is not just about the illustrations.  You can use paper, your jotter, cardboard to write/ draw on.  BE CREATIVE!

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.
