Week 2

It has been another busy week, with lots of different activities. Yesterday the class wrote imaginative bonfire poems. Today we took advantage of a beautiful November’s day, to do some maths tables work outside and we finished the day doing the Boddam Loop walk (thanks to Michelle for coming along with us).

Have a good weekend everyone and stay safe.

End of Week 6

What a lovely end to a busy week.

As a recognition of good behaviour , we had planned to play hide and seek in the forest. We couldn’t have had better weather for it, or more fun. Ms Scanlan managed to catch everyone, except for Koll. It wasn’t as easy as we thought, some of the P7s are excellent at hiding!

Just before that we planted a few more trees and we saw lots more frogs again. The pond has filled up with water from all the recent rain.

This week to link with our biodiversity life cycles topic, we made a display in French of the Hungry caterpillar – ‘La chenille qui fait des trous’. Ms Scanlan was very impressed by all the French accents and the lovely drawings.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Primary 7 Assembly

This afternoon Primary 7 did something a little bit different for their assembly / show of learning. They split into four groups to explain about all the  things that they were finding out about in Block 1. Each group split into two teams to make display boards and explain all about Pneumatics, Electricity, Enterprise and John Muir. The school split into their Focus Friday groups and parents joined the teams to visit each of the four workshops.

Toby did a fantastic job of timekeeping to keep us all on track, and everyone seemed to find their way from group to group.

After that, Primary 7 played a short piece from the beginning of their Radio Scotland Junior Historians show, that they made in the autumn. And finally Drew played a ‘Thank you for listening’ film that he had made using his drone.

The Primary 7s really enjoyed doing their assembly like this and said that it was a lot more fun and they enjoyed speaking to smaller groups and doing lots of activities. Ms Scanlan was very proud of all of them and hopes that the audience were too.  Well done P7s!

French Food

This afternoon we had a great time trying a few traditional French foods, that our Cannes pen pals eat. We tried baguettes, Camembert, Brie, Boursin, blue cheese, green and black olives, croissants, chocolate crepes and profiteroles .

Tryphena, Joanna, Mirrin and Faith helped to set everything out and kept everyone fed!

It was great to see lots of the class trying new foods and even enjoying them!

NSPCC

Today we had a really interesting talk from the NSPCC.

We learnt about Children’s Rights.

The 3 rules for all are:

to speak and be heard

be safe

get help when you need it.

We found out about the 5 types of abuse: neglect, physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse and bullying.

We learnt about Childline, who you can phone confidentially at any time on 08001111
