P5/6A debated in pairs on the merits of wearing school uniform.
One side debated on why we should wear school uniform and the other on why we should not.
We will continue our debate this week.
P5/6 A had a dramatic afternoon based around their topic theme of, ” Titanic,” they depicted a number of scenarios from the ship.
Can you guess…
the first class passengers
The impact of the Titanic hitting the iceberg
Getting into the lifeboats
Sitting down to dinner in first class
On Wednesday morning P5, P6 and P7 children were offered the opportunity to take part in a Cardio to Music exercise class that I ran in school from 8.30 until 9.00. The feedback was very positive and I look forward to seeing how many children will join us this Wednesday. These 2 taster sessions will determine if I shall continue this style of class after the Easter Holidays. Why not try it out?
We have been learning the meaning and use of improvised Drama in class. The children are put on the spot in the role of a character in a variety of different scenarios whilst the audience watch the story unfold.
This week, we used our topic, the Titanjc as our stimulus and we watched very harrowing situations as characters boarded lifeboats.
This week the class went and participated at Mass as it is the season of Lent and the Primary 4’s are preparing for the Sacrament of Communion.
Snapshot jotters have gone home today to let all parents see the super work the children have produced in class. Please remember to sign the jotter and leave a comment.
P5/6A and P6 had a wonderful trip this week to, “The Tall Ship, ” in Glasgow.
Firstly a huge thank you to those parents who came along to help, you were fantastic.
We had two workshops one where we learned to be archaeologists and locate artefacts correctly, and then we guessed what some of the objects were and lastly sorted which were real, over 100 years old , and which were fakes. Can you tell from the photographs?
We then had a super workshop where we learned about, ” Morse Code,” from two retired Merchant Seamen, who were really interesting to listen to and let us try Morse Code ourselves.
I hope you enjoy our photos as much as we enjoyed our day!
