Primary 5

We hope you all had a lovely and well deserved holiday. The children have come back raring to go!

It has been a busy week of cooking in P5. The children have participated in making leek and potato soup and champ (potatoes and spring onion) in preparation for our open morning. Hopefully you were able to taste food from Scotland (haggis and Irn Bru), England (scones, jam and cream), Wales (Leek and potato soup) and Northern Ireland (champ).

P5 had a Tae Kwon Do taster session this week. The children enjoyed learning about the different skills needed and carrying out some of the drills.

Both classes watched the Spiderwick Chronicles film. We then discussed the similarities and differences between the film and the book. We decided there were many!

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our Landmark open morning. The children were very excited to showcase their models. We hope you agree that they have worked very hard and the detail on some of them was amazing! The other classes also got a chance to see these on Thursday and left us some wonderful comments. Thank you for all your support in helping the children to produce such outstanding models!

Primary 5

P5 have been working very hard this week. The children (and staff) will be ready for their holiday!

In topic the children have each made a leaflet all about their landmark model. Everyone worked really hard to make sure that their leaflet contained interesting facts about their landmark as well as other relevant information. We also tried to make sure they were eye-catching to look at by adding lots of illustrations. You will have a chance to read these on our open morning.

We have also spent some time looking at the different traditional foods from each country in the UK. The children then recreated a dish of a meal that they might find in one of these countries. They were all so creative and some even chose to use a variety of materials such as tissue paper and string to give their meal a 3D effect.  You will have a chance to taste some of these foods at our open morning on Friday 25th October.

Mrs Gilmour’s class had great fun making figures dressed in the national costume of England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. The children worked very hard and the level of detail in the clothing was fantastic. Some of the figures are very life-like!

In writing the children have been creating persuasive posters to encourage everyone to keep safe and healthy. Some of the areas targeted were- washing hands, picking up litter, lining up sensibly, eating more fruit. Look out for the posters around the school when you next visit.

Well done to Mrs Gilmour’s class who have brought their PE kit every week so got to choose a treat in PE. They chose to get the big equipment out and had great fun practicing all the different skills they have learned so far. Miss Morris’ class still have a few who forget their kit, please can you try to remember so we can also get a treat!

Thank you to everyone who attended Parent Consultations this week. It was lovely to meet you all. Remember we are here to offer help at any time please just contact us through the school office.
