Boys and girls I was so surprised and delighted to find your special delivery on Friday. I am so sorry that I wasn’t in when Jacob and his Mum brought it round. I was volunteer shopping for someone.

I absolutely LOVE my beautiful gifts. How thoughtful of you all to organise this for me. I love the exquisite heart necklace, it will go with so many of my outfits. It has been much admired on my Facebook page and on Zoom chats already.

I adore scented candles especially once the nights start to get darker. I look forward to burning the geranium and rose petal one.

And I am hugely looking forward to sampling some Cocoa Black treats. I will take friends once the café is open again or I might get take-aways (when they open for those) to share with friends in a garden visit.

I LOVE the beautiful flower bouquet from Stems. Wow! It is brightening up my conservatory, where I spend lots of time in the summer. The flowers are gorgeous.

And I LOVE the card. It is so bright and cheerful.

Boys and girls I have loved being your teacher. I am sorry that we didn’t get to have a full year together because of the virus. Please say hello when you see me around Peebles. I love to hear how my past pupils are getting on.

I have many happy memories of our time together. How could I forget “Lights,  Camels, Action” or your amazing Charles Rennie Mackintosh artwork.  Thank you for being so enthusiastic to learn, so thoughtful of each other and so hard working.

I will hopefully still come to KPS occasionally to teach and I look forward to seeing you then. Have a wonderful summer. YOU are all STARS

P3 Shared Learning

Boys and girls I am having a great time reading our shared learning page. Your work is great. I hope you are enjoying family time too.

Some pupils will make up times tables problems like the one Zara Lavin made up. Can you try to answer them on the shared page? I think you can – I am learning so much new technology!! I can now use Zoom and am beginning to use Teams and Padlet, Wow!

Information reports SHARKS

I have enjoyed reading your information reports about Sharks and thought you would do so here is a selection.

Look for – a title, a general statement, a description and an evaluation.

Sharks are types of fish.

Sharks breathe through gills. Sharks don’t have bones, instead they have cartilage, what human nose and ears are made of. There are 500 types of shark. A group of sharks is called a school or shoal.

Sharks are marvellous creatures.

A shark is a type of fish.

Sharks can be deadly. Sometimes sharks think surfboards are seals so they might take the board. Sharks can hear fish moving 400m away. They can also smell fish from 500m away. Sharks breathe through a thing called gills. There are 500 types of sharks like hammerhead, white and blue. Sharks have a spiky thing on his or her back called a fin. They have a bit at the back, it is to help them swim. They can see in the dark.

P3 Nativity Art

P3 were inspired by very old paintings of the nativity and very modern art work of the Nativity including cartoon character Nativity scenes. In lots of the art we observed light coming from the baby Jesus. We chose a variety of media to create our Nativity art.

Look closely at our awesome art,:

Can you see any favourite cartoon characters?

Can you see light around Baby Jesus?
