- This afternoon the P4 pupils were engrossed in their learning when I popped in. Every pupil was engaged in an activity to help them learn more about money. They were enjoying moving around all the different activities.
On Friday at Assembly the pupils from Primary 4s shared their learning with the pupils from Primary 4-7. They did an excellent presentation about Living Things sharing all the facts they had learned. They involved the audience too!
They finished the Assembly with a wonderful song sung entirely in French! It was lovely to see them all enjoying their learning and having the confidence to share it with their peers!
Today the Primary 5, 6 and 7 classes were lucky to get to visit The Magpie Big Top to take part in circus workshops. It was a beautiful day for the classes to walk to the playing park and learn new skills with the performers who are visiting Shetland.
The pupils all had a fantastic time. Ellis and Callum from P5S said it was their first time at a circus and they had really enjoyed using the flower sticks to try out tricks.
Alfie from P5s had found it very satisfying when he had been able to master a skill using the sticks.
The photos below show how much fun the children had!
Primary 4 pupils visited me today to share some of their super poems. They had been listening to “A few of my favourite things!” from the Sound of Music for inspiration.
They then wrote their own version thinking about their very own favourite things.
Riley felt he had found this easy to do and he’d enjoyed it.
Katie said, “It was easy to think of my favourite things but trickier to put that into words that would fit in the poem.”
Keira and Anya had both enjoyed listening to the song and had created super poems. The girls told me how when anyone was finding it tricky then they had helped one another and shared ideas.
The pupils had clearly loved creating and sharing their poems and they were buzzing with excitement to tell me all about it and to share their fantastic poems – which I really enjoyed! Mrs Wadley heard the excitement in my office and popped in to read them too. She was really impressed with their work! Mrs Simpson
