Over a few weeks, we have been working on our class charter. First, we talked about the work of the United Nations which then led us to look at the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. There are many “Articles” in the convention but we focused on the main ones that we felt were important in our class. We chose those that fitted – Be Heard, Be Ourselves, Be Healthy and Be safe. We worked in groups to say what this would look like in our class as we learn together. We gathered everyone’s ideas and these were turned into statements that we are going to try our best to abide by in class. 🙂
There was also a discussion about what the children want their teachers to try to provide. Mrs Henderson and I will work hard on these too and we’ll try our best not to let you down. 🌞
As part of our Health and Wellbeing lesson this week, we went outside to try a game that needed us all to work together to make the task work! We had to pass around the ball, without letting it touch the ground or our hands. It also had to touch everyone’s legs, no jumping over! After a few tries, we quickly realised that we had to alter how we sat together and how we passed it on. Our best time was 21 seconds! I wonder if it will ever be beaten?
P.S. Welcome back to Scarlett!
Over the past week, we have been putting together a class dance with an African feel! It was a beautiful day so we took our rehearsals outside and managed to run through all the steps as a class. They’ve picked it up really quickly. In the afternoon Fearne’s Mum, Mercyline, met us in the multi court to show us some moves that would be typical in the Sengenya dance and then she helped us add some of these movements into the group sequences that the children created. They had some lovely, creative ideas! We’ll record these dances tomorrow and hope to share our work at the end of term. A big thank you to Mercyline for giving up her time for us. 😊
We have been thinking about what it would have been like to be evacuated in WW2. We are going to write letters home, pretending we have been evacuated, thinking about the differences between life in a city and life in the countryside.
It was just too lovely outdoors so we took our planning sheets out of the classroom and enjoyed working in the sunshine!
Our day today started with Mrs Douglas’ symmetry lesson. The class all concentrated so well on their shapes and patterns. Then it was out into the fresh air to tidy up to the Croft House doing our Redd Up. See the photo of our most unusual find! Then it was reading time followed by a lesson on alliteration. The children made up sentences about their classmates using alliteration and interesting verbs, adjectives and adverbs. After lunch, we recapped on Health & Wellbeing work from last week, relating to naming external body parts. Mrs Douglas made up a fun game that had everybody answering questions and using the correct names. It was a fun and relaxed way to learn. (No Ratings Yet) Loading...
Over the past week we have been sharing thoughts on how to stay positive and how we can help other people feel good about themselves. On Monday, everyone decided on some positive words to paint on to a rock and chose a design to accompany it. These will be displayed outside the school next term for all to enjoy.
We have also been finding out even more interesting facts about Space and enjoyed looking at some of the PowerPoints that were created during Online Learning.
On Tuesday we visited the frog pond in the nature garden. It was good fun trying to find the frogs hiding in the heather. They were very camouflaged!
On Wednesday, we had lots of fun with our literacy Escape Room challenge. It was very active! Each team raced to find clues hidden outside and then brought them back indoors to solve as a team. Everyone did really well to take turns and involve every team member in the game.
Just before the next rain shower came, we squeezed in an Easter egg hunt and had fun re-hiding our eggs for someone else to find!
Phew! What a busy time and still two more days to go! Well done everyone!
For the final two days of the first week back, we focused on the 5 Ways to Wellbeing to structure our days. These were…Connect, Be Active, Keep Learning, Take Notice and Give. The link is below for you to watch at home.This clip is for children … and adults too!
All our class activities fitted into one or more of these areas. At the end of the week, the children wrote in their Think Books to say which activities they enjoyed on returning to school. “Connect” and “Keep Active” were definitely the firm favourites!
Primary 5/6 spent another lovely day being creative on Wednesday! We took a wander down to the beach in the sunshine in search of some interesting natural items to use back in the classroom. We had great fun “purlin in da ebb” to look for crabs, fish and other interesting living things.
Just look at these some of the fantastic pictures P5/6 made using the items they found!! More photos to be added so keep an eye out for them coming very soon!
We’re only a couple of days in and already we have been busy reconnecting with each other through various games and crafts. This week we started a collaborative painting project. Each person has a grid to paint and when all the grids come together it will reveal a mystery picture! Watch this space to find out what it is!
We have also enjoyed making some new bookmarks in preparation for getting back into our daily reading in class. There were even families of bookmarks made…of all sizes!
During our online learning, we began to look at stars and constellations as part of our Space topic. We had fun today finding out about the Zodiac sign our birthdays fall under and what that constellation looks like. Can you guess what they are?
