P3B Scots Poetry Competition

Well done everyone for learning your Scots Poems Captain Puggle and The Sair Finger. The winner in P3B was Chloe Girdwood. We were all very proud of Chloe today when she recited her poem perfectly in front of the whole school.

Our runner up was Frankie Smellie with another fabulous rendition of The Sair Finger. Frankie made us laugh with her angry fist when she said, “Ye rogue!”

What a lot of talented pupils we have in our school! We were so proud of Sam Fitzgerald who played The Skye Boat song on his treble recorder alongside Callum, his brother, on his descant recorder. A performance to be proud of boys. Well done.

Frozen dinosaurs

Today we explored how to free some dinosaurs that were frozen in ice.

We watched them melting, we bashed them to try and break the ice and we used salt to see if that would make the ice melt faster.

“We could use salt to melt the ice because that’s what the lorrys use.” – Jacob




P3B Keen Poetry Writers

The pupils below  have inspired more poetry writers to write poems at home.  Here are their poems:

Blue is and Yellow is poems by Maisie

Blue is the sky

Blue is the sea

Blue is the river

Blue is the water

Blue is the bath.


Yellow is the sun

Yellow is bananas

Yellow is lemons

Yellow is pineapple

Yellow is summer.

My Blue Poem by Megan

Blue is as blue as a blueberry,

Blue is as blue as my dolphin Giggles,

Blue is as blue as a blue pen,

Blue is as blue as a summer sky.


Some pupils have been so keen on writing poetry that they have written their own poems at home. Fantastic girls, well done.

Eliana Herd wrote a Red is list poem:

Red is blood,

Red is love hearts,

Red is a traffic light,

Red is roses.

Ailish Bartley wrote a poem about a hummingbird:


Hum hum little one brighter than the sun,

Hum hum Fun fun I found you,

Hum hum Fun fun Found found,

Flap now Flutter away  Hum hum Fun,

Fun Found Found Flap Flap

Have FUN!

Niamh Donnachie wrote a Scottish Landscape Poem:

Spring – warm and rainy, Purple and pink

flowers pop up when you think.

Summer – warm and bright, Yellow and blue

A really hot day for you.

Autumn – Windy and cold, red and brown

Autumn leaves falling down.

Winter – cold and snowy white and grey

The perfect day to make a snowman.




We have been learning and exploring about Scotland this week! WE have made a “wee hoose” in our ELC, we have been learning some Scottish dancing and been learning a Scottish song/rhyme “Ally Bally”.

We have been having Scottish food for snack too…..haggis yummy!

WE went up to Primary One to do some Scottish singing with them too, Mrs Musgrave had her guitar.

Christmas at Kingsland ELC

WE had a really busy December! WE performed in our Chritsmas nativity, to both the P6 children and the mummys and Daddys! We were all fantastic!

We made winter cupcakes, and decorated our ELC christmas tree!

We made lots of lovely chistmas crafts, a special bauble to take home and a santa card.

We also had a Christmas part, where a special visitor came….santa!

What were your successes of the week?

Saying the Scots poems and sharing them with P2B

Maths is challenging but, I can still do it.

Saying my poem to an audience.

When I am joining up my letters in handwriting it looks much neater now.

I was pleased to be one of the five winners of the Scots poetry
competition in my class.

Do you want to build a snowman?

Our topic is weather and what an exciting week we had last week. This helped us to think about some of the questions we were asked at the beginning of the topic.

How can we predict the weather?

What can we do to prepare for different types of weather?

Do we have to wear special clothes in different types of weather?

What happened to our school week when it snowed heavily?

Was it all fun in the snow or could it be dangerous? How did you stay safe?
