Happy Halloween!

P6/7 had a super spooky day today.

We had dancing, dooking for apples, Kahoot! quizzes, super sour sweets, party games and food!

Mrs Smith was very impressed by all the efforts of the children in class.

Who can you spot in the photo below?


We have had a busy but enjoyable 1st week back. We are looking forward to exploring our rainforest topic in more detail over the next few weeks. What are you looking forward to this block?

Mrs Brown and Mrs Smith

Meet our newest additions…

We were all super excited to meet our new stick insect family. We set up their starter enclosure and made sure they had food before we settled them in.

We then had the tricky job of naming our new ‘stickies’.

We have named them; Stickabelle, Lorax Jr, Ivy, Trixie and Twix.

Let us know what you think of our new arrivals…

How many can you find in the photo below? They are very good at camouflage!

We really enjoyed our live lesson today. We had to think about app design and began creating our own app. We had some great ideas and are looking forward to spending some more time working on the design.

Spectacular Stick Insects

This week P6/7 carried out some very important research to persuade Mrs Ward to allow us to have a class pet.

We had lots of things to find out to ensure that stick insects were the right pets for our classroom. After finding out the information we created PowerPoints and then shared them with Mrs Ward.

We were excited to receive a reply from Mrs Ward to let us know that we are allowed our class pets. Woohoo!

We will update you with some photos once we get our wee pals settled.

Paralympic Sports

P6 and P6/7 want to say a huge thank-you to Mr Murray who came in this afternoon to teach us about the Paralympic sports; boccia and sitting volleyball. It was brilliant to learn some new games and also we realised how hard it is to carry out simple tasks when you can not move certain parts of your body. Here are some photos of our afternoon fun…




We have been learning about resilience this week. We challenged ourselves to create card castles and used Mrs Ward’s assembly as inspiration for a card throwing challenge. We had to be very resilient  in order to keep going and not give up when things got hard.
