Primary 5

Hello to everyone.

We have been busy practicing our song for the Scots afternoon. The children have been enthusiastically singing 500 miles. We think they sing it better than the Proclaimers!

All children recited their Scottish poem to the class. We were very impressed with the standard. It was obvious that many children had practiced at home and put a lot of effort in to it. Thank you for any help you were able to give your child with this. The winners from P5M were Erin and Rory. The winners from P5G were Tegan and Cayden. The winners will now say their poem in front of the whole school. Well done to everyone who put themselves forward.

The children seem to be enjoying out topic The Scottish Wars of Independence. They are currently working on a challenge to make a poster to explain what life was like in the 13th century. There is lots of researching, drawing and writing going on.

The children going to Lockerbie Manor should have brought home letters this week giving you information about what to pack. There will be a meeting on Thursday 6th February to give you more information about this residential.

The children have been working hard on their Enterprise activities for the Christmas Fair. Hopefully you can come along to the Christmas fair tonight and see them in action!

In PE the children have been creating playground games for their buddies. Next week they will be teaching their buddies how to play these games.

Mr Anderson from DCHS had another practice with all the children and they are sounding fantastic! The children are getting excited about singing at the high school on Thursday 15th December.

Primary 3 28.11.16

Primary 3 have been working so hard in their Nativity. The boys and girls have been practising singing, dancing and their lines for the show. Thank you to everyone who has brought in their costume for the Nativity. We have our first dress rehearsal this Wednesday.

We are continuing with homework this week. Children have their weekly spelling and maths to complete. Please encourage your children to read their reading book regularly. New pages are set every Tuesday and Thursday.

In Maths the children have been mentally subtracting large numbers with the help of a hundred square. They have also been trying hard to learn their x2 x10 and x5 times tables. Children need to practise these regularly to help them retain what they have learned in class.

Primary 3 have their Christmas lunch this Thursday and we hope you can all make it to the Christmas Fair on Friday!
