Nursery children have been learning about ‘Building and buildings’ this term. They have been exploring patterns in their environment, building models using junk and construction, measuring the size of objects using blocks, rulers, straws and string, and looking at similarities and differences of buildings in the area.
On Friday 11th October we held our whole school Harvest assembly. We collected donations for the local Food Bank and David Grieve from the local branch accepted these. We thank you for your very kind donations.
On Thursday we welcomed families to our Learner Led Event. Learner Led Events are a chance for your child(ren) to share their learning with you.
Our pupils enjoyed showing their families around the school and sharing their learning with them.
Representatives from various other agencies were available in our school canteen, these included our Parent Council, the School Nurse and Active Schools. The School Meal’s Service provided taster school lunches for families to try and this was very popular.
On Tuesday 27th May both Primary One classes went for a trip to Bressay. We were lucky to get the chance to talk with Captain John Clark and his crew on the Leirna. We went up to the Bridge and saw how the boat is steered. Once safely ashore we walked up to the Maryfield House Hotel, where we enjoyed crisps and juice. There was even time for a play in the garden before we caught the ferry home! We had such a super morning.
As part of our Moving maths sessions on Wednesday afternoons the boys and girls in Primary 1s and 1n made Fruit punch. We have been learning about volume and capacity. We followed a recipe and filled the cups up to the correct lines with different fruit juices. We enjoyed our drinks afterwards!
Over the last few weeks we have been learning all about number bonds in Primary 1s. We have been learning all the number bonds that make the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Lots of practical work using cubes and counters have helped these bonds to become familiar.
Both Primary One classes took over the tuck shop today selling iced biscuits. The Primary 7 pupils kindly helped us to ice the biscuits and sell these around the classes. We wanted to raise some money for our friend, Etta, who is in hospital at the moment. We hope to use this money to buy her something nice.
