Details of the October Netball Camp to raise funds for the club.
It was wonderful to see so many pupils, parents and grandparents at the Jubilee Dance tonight. What a super night – great music by the Peter Wood Dance Band, a lovely supper – big thank you to Carol Jamieson, champion bannock maker and Dorothy Robertson for the soup.
The P7 pupils did a fantastic job pulling it all together and getting the school looking so good. We were impressed with all the dancing.
Thank you for supporting us and helping us raise money towards the P7 trips this year.
Today P7S had a lot of fun writing a dialogue between two characters, which they had created as puppets beforehand! Their task was to write a conversation between their characters and punctuate their speech. They then performed their conversation (using their writing as a script) to the class.
Primary 3s have been practising hard for their assembly on the 29th September. This is one of the songs we will be performing. It’s called “Bonjour, c’est moi” (Hello, it’s me!) and in it we show how we have learned the names for parts of our bodies in French.
Primary 7N have also been busy creating their own board games, with instructions, in cooperative learning groups. They were inspired by their class novel – “The Brilliant World of Tom Gates” by Liz Pichon. Pichon uses lots of doodle cartoons and calligrams to make her stories even more interesting. P7N used these techniques on their board games to make them really eye catching and quirky.
We had a really fun afternoon playing our completed board games.
Both Primary One classes have been very busy learning through stories this term. We have enjoyed lots of activities to help develop our pre reading and writing skills.
This term P3n have been learning about Food and Health as their topic. As part of this, the class worked cooperatively in groups to design a poster or a leaflet to inform others about what they had learnt so far. They also put their ICT skills to good use by using clipart to add in pictures. We think they look great!
P2s have settled in really well and have been working hard this term. The topic has been birthdays and this has covered time, making graphs, seasons, months and many more aspects of time and people. The trip to see a film at Mareel was great and everybody is looking forward to more trips next term!
This term P2n have been celebrating Birthdays as a topic. We have been learning the months of the year, days of the week and seasons. We enjoyed playing in our birthday party role play area with party plates, cups and a birthday cake.
We have also made our own Birthday party hats and decorated party plates with a pattern of different colours. We have enjoyed this topic!
P4S has been studying all things weather related this term. We all enjoyed measuring the wind speed, direction, rainfall and temperature. Our co-operative learning groups took turns to read the instruments and record the information. Then we all made bar graphs to show our recordings and used 1 square to represent 2 or 5 units.
We made a display showing the seven elements of weather: clouds, precipitation, sunshine, temperature, visibility, wind force and wind direction.
Our poems were all about weather too. We typed them up in word documents and inserted clipart. We started creating factsheets about different climates and the animals that live there.
We are looking forward to our visit to the Lerwick Observatory next week to find out more about measuring weather and hope we’ll see them launching the weather balloon.
