Welcome to Primary 4/5K
The class enjoyed the first week getting to know each other and getting to know me better. We have now established our class timetable, our learning objectives and began our topic on Dr Seuss.
The lockers have not arrived yet but they are expected very soon. This will enable the class to have their own space to leave their bags and jackets throughout the day. Indoor shoes are still a priority to keep the classroom floors clean as the school is looking great following a summer of further refurbishment.
Homework this year shall be issued throughout the week with instructions on what to complete and due date identified. Please check your child’s diary regularly and sign. The diary can be used to communicate with myself with messages regarding the curriculum or attendance. I am also available before or after school if you wish to speak to me personally.
It is apparent that there are still some items of clothing that are not labelled. To ensure your child’s clothes can be easily identified, particularly on P.E. days, please write their name and class on as clearly as possible.
Please continue to access the blog regularly to see what the class have been up to.
Thank you in advance your co-operation. I look forward to a fun-filled and productive year with P4/5.
Primary 7F have been learning about the 1960s and researching different aspects of it using the internet. They have been using this information to make Powerpoint displays and Word documents.
The class have enjoyed listening to music from the sixties and we even had a record player to listen to music on! We will continue with this topic for the rest of this term.
The class have been enjoying reading and listening to the work of Dr Seuss. So far they have managed to write an imaginative story, telling me what would happen if the Cat in the Hat visited them, and in a discussion we identified the personal safety issues that were highlighted in the story. Using the laptops they researched and completed a fact file on Dr Seuss, revealing their current ICT skills. Well done Primary 4/5! More Dr Seuss next week.
The pupils in P7H are already hard at work and relishing the responsibilities that come with being senior pupils.
Here they are taking part in a music lesson with our music specialist, Miss White. The pupils were challenged to create music using simple objects they were able to find around the classroom. Some groups were very creative and made some fantastic sounds.
We enjoyed taking part in a Music lesson with our Music specialist, Miss White. We were experimenting with rhythm and beats whilst we worked together as a team.
