What a surprise to come back to school to find that John has pieced together all the mud kitchen resources we sourced last term, many kindly donated by parents throughout the school and our staff members. A HUGE thank you from P5/6!
We hope to begin playing with it next week, but first we are going to organise ourselves into friendship groups for playing, these will be swapped around so we get to play with different people. We also want to decide on some rules and have time to organise the bits and pieces we’ll play with.
Because we want to quarantine the equipment between groups, another offer of a fish box or similar storage box would be great so we can split the equipment.
Finally, we have been drafting a letter to our Parent Council to see if they could help us purchase some waterproof suits that will help protect our clothing.
Here we are with the kitchen….so far! John may have more plans for us!
What a superb end to our first term! Over the past two days, the children have worked brilliantly in groups, pairs and on their own to carry out research on their chosen life cycle. We look forward to sharing our finished displays and information next term! We enjoyed a brisk walk around the Boddam loop road during our class P.E. time today and finished off with a short musical concert from our cello and violin players. It was fabulous to hear them play so beautifully and with great confidence!
A huge well done to all the children for handling this first term so well! We are extremely proud of you. Have a relaxing holiday!
In P5/6 we do ERIC time (Everyone Reading In Class) every day. It’s 20 minutes of peaceful, calm reading which really sets us up for the day! Today we joined up with many schools all over Scotland to take part in the Ness Book Fest Reading Challenge. There were 14,200 children all reading simultaneously all over the country! More than double the number reading last year. David Walliams, Michael Morpurgo and David Baddiel books continue to be favourites in P5/6. Keep on reading everybody!
Recently, P5/6 were given a talk and PowerPoint presentation by our class member Ethan. He prepared his talk with the help of Mrs Leslie, to tell us all about Erb’s Palsy and how this affects his daily life. We learned about how Ethan came to have this condition and he told us about some of the physical difficulties he experiences. We also leaned about some of the exercises he does to strengthen his arm. This week, as a thank you for listening, Ethan gave us all a tattoo, badge and wrist band as a gift. Here we all are! Thank you, Ethan!
