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.
This term P7S have been reading ‘The Brilliant World of Tom Gates’ as their class novel. As part of this, they were set the task in their cooperative learning groups, of designing a board game based around the theme of the character Tom Gates. The board games are great and we’re looking forward to showing them off at the learner led event!
This term P2n have been learning all about growing things. Today they shared their learning with P1-4 at assembly. They were certainly confident individuals as they all spoke clearly to their peers.
We were all able to see and hear how much they have enjoyed their learning this term. We saw their skills in listening and talking, reading, writing, singing, drawing, creating, singing and presenting. They have carried out experiments and enjoyed being scientists.
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
