This week we have enjoyed:
- “Doing the Nativity. I loved singing the camel song”
- “Looking at shapes in maths. I liked drawing the Christmas pictures using shapes to draw around”
- “I liked doing our dress rehearsal because my big sister was there!”
- “I liked learning about food chains and different animals”
- “I liked watching ‘The Snowman’ and drawing him”
We are looking forward to our final week of Christmas parties, a pantomime show and a tasty Christmas lunch!
We have enjoyed exploring negative numbers. We learned about the rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing them.
We have been able to do our first piece of extended imaginative writing. It was fun to be able to create our own characters and settings and get all our ideas into a story.
Mrs. Fletcher has made sure we are all ready for our party with plenty of dancing practice.
We had a great afternoon sharing our homework task and learning about different countries. We even learned about countries we didn’t know existed.
One of the highlights of this week has been the Carols by Candlelight which helped us all get into the festive spirit.
Our ELC Christmas shows are finished! We hope you all enjoyed our performances on Tuesday and today.
Like we said at the show all the ideas came from the children, they helped make the backdrop and parts of the costumes – please see our floorbook for the story of this!
A huge thank you to all who came to watch us!
What an amazing dress rehearsal ! Good luck for the shows today and tomorrow.
Thank you to Mrs. Ryalls, Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Ward for creating the show stopping costumes and corridor display.
The Primary 1s have been very busy exploring numbers to 10 and using different materials to help them to add numbers within 10.
Topmarks is a great website full of games for you to explore with your child:
On Monday we welcomed our parents in for our final Book Week themed session. Everyone enjoyed watching Meg McLaren read the story of ‘ The Station Mouse’ then we all participated in a step-by-step drawing lesson. We cut our our characters to make puppets and used these to retell the story. Our next steps would be creating a word bank together to describe our character and then write some sentences about him.
Which book did you enjoy the most?
Primary 4 have been learning about human rights and diversity. We have been thinking about children who are not as lucky as we are. We had a vote in class to decide if we wanted to buy a Unicef Advent Calendar to help others or if we wanted class games for ourselves. We voted to help others and, every day we open a door and find out what we have bought to help boys and girls around the world. So far, we have bought chalkboards for children to write on, 15 pencils for writing and drawing with, a mosquito net to prevent a family from getting malaria and a vaccine to protect a child against measles.
On Tuesday P7 made Sushi. They watched a tutorial and took notes. After they made the sushi they got to try it. They could choose from fish, cucumber, pepper and avocado. They cut it in to smaller bits to eat it. Lots of people liked it but others didn’t. Then they all wrote a recipe on how to make sushi using their notes. They wrote down the method,the ingredients and equipment. One of the challenging things was when you were rolling up the sushi in tinfoil because it would come out and spill everywhere. Some people thought it tasted a lot better when you added soy sauce but others thought it was disgusting.They enjoyed making it and here is what some people thought of it.
Lucy and Skye said they liked it.
Immy said she loved it.
Anna said she liked it but would prefer it without sea weed.
