Happy Holidays

That’s been a fast term!

What have P5/6 been up to on their final day of term?  They all worked on grammar activities first thing before heading out to the multicourt for class P.E. where we scored a record number of frisbee goals! Then we all worked on our own personal learning goals before lunch so all different types of activities were going on at the same time.  The afternoon saw us gather together to have a whole school photo to celebrate our 50 years and this was followed by a great JRSO assembly.  Happy holidays everyone and here’s hoping this weather holds!

World Mental Health Awareness Day

Today we took part in a live, national, health and well-being lesson.  We watched and listened as the presenters talked to us about recognising and expressing our emotions and building our resilience by developing a growth mindset.  They also touched on self care and we explored a range of methods we could use both inside and outside school.  We recorded some of our thoughts on our activity sheets as we watched.

Team Work

At several points during our day today, we’ve had to work well together as part of a team.  Our Class P.E. session saw us teamed up to play Ultimate Frisbee.  Our main focus during the game was to think about spreading ourselves out over the court, getting into good positions and calling to our team mates to pass.  We’ve been building up our “team playing” skills over the first few weeks and we’re getting better!

The afternoon saw us focus on what it means to be included or excluded and the feelings associated with this.  Some heartfelt stories were shared and while some of these were sad to hear, there were many more uplifting and humorous tales of inclusion, belonging and kindness being shown.  We also played a class team building game where every pupil was required to contribute in order for the task to succeed.  This led us on to thinking about what skills are needed during team tasks.  The children worked in cooperative groups to decide upon their “Diamond Nine” skills.  They demonstrated that they are developing good skills in this area!!

Rocket Launch!

Last week P5/6 had a visit from The Edinburgh Royal Observatory.  We learned about the work that goes on there and were even lucky enough to touch a piece of equipment that has actually travelled into space!

Then it was time to make our own rockets and launch them outside!  It was very exciting!!

Meet our new JRSO’s

Today our newly appointed JRSO’s got to meet Elaine Skinley and receive their welcome packs.  They have already been busy updating our JRSO board in the foyer area…so watch this space during the year for all the competitions and activities they are planning.

Our last day with Miss Budge

What a super day we’ve had in P5/6 saying our farewells to the lovely Miss Budge! Although she will be in school on Friday, today was her last day in P5/6.

Both the pupils and myself have thoroughly enjoyed having Miss Budge in our class this year and she will be greatly missed.

We spent the afternoon playing games and filling up on sugar!

A quick game of speak out – not that we were keeping score but team Wells won 😉

Followed by a game of pie face!

Not satisfied with the amount of cream on Miss Budge, she got a little extra …

What better way to say thank you for all her hard work this year than to be gifted with a face full of cream!!

 

The very best of luck to you in your next chapter Miss Budge, you will be a big miss.
