Keeping Digital Safe over Christmas.

This Christmas many of our pupils will be finding new phones and tablets  in their Christmas stockings, lucky them! However as they get started viewing videos,  chatting to friends and live stream gaming, it is important for us to remember to keep them protected.

This year CEOP has created a series of videos to help parents keep their children safe. These short clips can be the starting points for chats about how we behave online outside of school.

Take a look at the Parents Activity Packs for some great ways to get started.


Awards for St Fergus’ Young Engineers of the Future.

Congratulations to St Fergus’ Primary 6 and 7 pupils who were awarded their grades in the Scottish Engineering  Leaders Awards this morning. Lockdown aside, this was a bumper year for entries with the largest number of pupils entering their designs than ever before.
Their task was to think of a problem that exists and then design a solution.
This year three pupils, Olivia, Hailie and Emma,  stood out with their entries being selected to the final stage and shortlisted for the award, an amazing achievement!
Well done to all!

P6 Home Learning Tasks

Good Morning and Happy Monday to you all. I hope you had a lovely weekend and had a chance to relax in the sun, yesterday afternoon. Can you believe that we only have two more weeks of home learning tasks before we break for the summer? I cannot believe that the time has passed so quickly since we stopped in March. You will start to get more information about arrangements for returning to school in August soon and remember that that you will need to think about speeches applying for Head Boy and Head Girl!

Task 1 – Think about your friends you have missed from school and take 5 min to say the school prayer, with a Hail Mary and Our Father to ask for them to be kept safe.

Task 2 – Cosmic Yoga – Join Jamie for some meditation before you get started with your tasks. Relax and think clearly to complete your tasks quickly and accurately.

P6 Home Learning Tasks 12/6/20

Good morning P6, I hope you had some fun yesterday with your Health and Wellbeing task? My daughters couldn’t understand why I was being so nice to them and every time I said something nice they started laughing.

The Emperor Tamarins were a bit of a disappointment, I don’t think they liked the rain and went hiding!

Your task today are all focused on Africa, there are no formal literacy or maths tasks but you will need to listen and be creative.

Task 1 – Lets Explore Nigeria – a short video clip with some questions to answer.

Task 2 – Virtual Safari at Longleat Safari Park.  – Follow the safari around the park, take notes and create a safari board game.

Task 3 – Ndebele Art – Look at the images in the PowerPoint and design your own pattern on the worksheet.

Only three tasks but they will take a bit of time. Be as fun as you can with the game and play it with your family.

Have a great weekend, I am in St Fergus’ today and again at the start of next week, if you need help just send me a message.

Good morning P6, its is a much colder and wet day than we have become used to, hopefully it will dry up for the afternoon and you can get outside for a while. Your tasks for today re posted in Google Classroom and I have made a plan to follow below;

Task 1 – School Prayer – take some time to think of your friends and family and just as we would do in school, say your St Fergus’ Prayer to ask for their protection through this strange time.

Task 2 – Exercise – any exercise you want to do for 30 min, it will get your brain and body working for the day. Below is the link to Joe Wicks.

Task 3 – Writing – Using Fronted Adverbials – instructions are in Classroom. Replicate yesterday’s task but this time use fronted adverbials to make your sentences more engaging for your reader. Watch the video clip for some examples.

Task 4 – Health and Wellbeing – Joy – Take a photo of a person, a place or an item which brings you joy! If you can, upload it with an explanation of what it is and why.

This is mine.

Task 5 – Go Noodle –  Join in with the stretching and release any tension you have in your body.

Task 2Setting the scene for a story. Create a character in your head (I chose a Princess having just watched Maleficent on TV).

Task 4 – Go Noodle

Task 5 – Maths – Ordering Fractions. Watch the video and complete the worksheets.
