P5C enjoyed our Dr Seuss day on Friday. This was to finish off our Topic. We had lots of fun during our Topic and we looked at the following books by Dr Seuss: The Cat in the Hat; Oh, The Places You’ll Go! and The Lorax. Our Topic covered a diverse range of subjects (Health & Wellbeing; Geography; The Environment; PSD; as well as a huge range of literacy).
The P5 children, from P4/5K, will begin swimming lessons as of next week. They shall attend The Peak twice a week, a Monday and a Wednesday, with P5 children from P5/6A. Please ensure your child brings their swimming costume and a towel and has a warm jacket to wear.
Primary 4/5K ended their topic by having a Dr Seuss Day. Everyone in the class was invited to dress up in a Dr Seuss costume related to the 3 books we had focussed our learning on; Cat in the Hat, Oh the Places You’ll Go! and The Lorax. In the morning each child in the class invited along one person, from within the school, to share their learning with and to take part in Dr Seuss activities. In the afternoon we had a celebration playing Dr Seuss games, eating party food and watching animated versions of the books we had read. A fun day was had by all.
The children have been working super hard this week on learning number 8 and our new sound ‘d’. The children have been using lots of different resources to help form the number 8. This week, writing on the ActiveInspir board has been our favourite! P1F have even been critiquing Miss Farley’s number 8 and telling me what I need to do for next time.
P1F were very lucky to have a ‘spooktacular’ Halloween party with our friends in P1S. We had some dancing, music, laughter and lots of fun!
Look at our wonderful costumes and dancing below!
We have a superhero filled week coming our way in P1F and we can’t wait!
Our Topic this term is the novel, “Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone.”
We have been busy in groups drawing and painting the main items and characters from the novel, to bring our topic to life.
We made wands from chopsticks, plasticine, pipe cleaners , beads and plaster of paris today, we can’t wait till they dry and we can paint them.
We will work on our MS Access Harry Potter themed Database this week too.
One of our topic tasks is to prepare a Harry Potter themed lesson to give to the class. Providing a lesson to the class is a huge responsibility, the lessons must be fully prepared, engaging and show excellent talking and listening skills. The lessons are now in full swing, thanks to Findlay, Rebecca, Teagan and Ruaraidh – we have made Howlers, Wands and Marauders Maps.
This week the children found out that our new class topic is ‘Superheroes’. We will be looking at our 5 senses as well as everyday superheroes and the children in P1F are very excited. We will also be looking at our talents, what makes us unique and what makes us special. Below you can see that we have been practising our superhero poses in gym with Miss Collins.
We also got to wear our superhero capes during our lessons and during our free time outside! We think we look super awesome!
Here we are practising our superhero dance and helping us think like superheroes.
The children this week have been working really hard on creating fabulous artwork for the art gallery in November! Their masterpieces are looking fantastic.
Happy 5th Birthday to Orla! We hoped you had a lovely day and we enjoyed celebrating with you.
We have some exciting Halloween activities next week and Miss Farley can’t wait!
