Primary 4 12.3.20

Hello everyone

We have had a very busy and fun week in Primary 4. It is great to be all back together in our classes again.

This week we have been celebrating Sport Relief. Primary 6 have been coming around the school selling wristbands and we also had an excellent PE session yesterday organised by Primary 6! It really tested our endurance and stamina but it was lots of fun! Tomorrow the children can come to school dressed in their sporty clothes (please no football shirts) for a 50p donation. We will also go outside and take part in the weekly mile as part of our celebrations.

In RME this week we have been learning about the Christian celebration of Baptism. We learned why baptism is important to Christians, the important people who take part in a baptism service and what happens during the service. We created our own dramas based on baptism and performed them to the rest of the class – they were great! In writing, we wrote an explanation piece telling others everything we have learned about baptism – well done P4!

Rehearsals for our class assembly have continued this week. Thank you for all your support in helping the children to learn their lines. Our assembly will take place in the large hall at 9:10am next Tuesday 17th March. If you can attend please return the form in your child’s school bag to let us know. We look forward to seeing you then ūüôā

Reminders –
Homework was given out on Wednesday and is due in on Monday 23rd March. All starred activities should be completed. This will be the last piece of homework handed out before the Easter holidays.

Our PE days are changing – Indoor PE will take place on a Monday and Outdoor PE will be on a Tuesday for P4M and a Thursday for P4C. Please ensure your child comes to school with appropriate PE kit and their own water bottle. Thank you.

Have a lovely weekend. Thank you for your support.

Primary 2 9/3/20

A huge congratulations to Primary 2 O/P! They performed a fantastic assembly to their parents and Primary 1-3. There was super singing, dancing and acting. They shared lots of learning and the parents thought it was wonderful!

This week is Sport Relief! Primary 6 have organised a sporting event on Wednesday (Children need their p.e kits) and Primary 2 will be doing their own dancing challenge on Friday (dress down day). Primary 6 are still selling bands at £1 and the children are encouraged to bring in a donation on Friday. We are looking forward to seeing everyone in their sports clothes and ready to dance!

Our specialist timetable is changing next week. Primary 2 will have their P.E with Mrs Ferguson on a Thursday and Art with Ms Fox on Wednesday. We will move our outdoor P.E session to a Tuesday.  So children require P.E kits on Tuesday and Thursday.

New homework was issued today. Can we remind the children to complete the activities on the sheet and anything that the children do can be noted in their “share it” jotter. Please ensure that the children are doing their reading on a regular basis and completing activities on Ed City.

We are excited about our up coming trip to The Tall Ship in Glasgow! We are going on Tuesday 24th March. We have lots of pirate themed activities to do and we will get to explore a real ship!

We are moving away from Multiplying and division in maths this week and starting to learn about addition with  money. The children will be adding coins together to reach totals. We have even set up a shop in our play area to allow the children to practise!

Reminders: Indoor shoes, water bottle, homework folders, p.e kits and a snack for break.

Any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Primary 6 have been busy raising awareness for this year’s Sport Relief week taking place on the week beginning the 9th March. During that week P6 pupils will be taking every class for a PE lesson to show them all the different ways in which your child can get sporty! On the Friday 13th March there will be a Sporty Themed Dress Down Day with a 50p contribution that will go to the charity. (Please can we stress the importance of no football strips)

Sport Relief wrist bands will also be going on sale from next week 2nd March at a cost of £1. P6 pupils will be selling these during the school day visiting each class after break.

Sport Relief/Comic Relief raise money to help people in the UK as well as around the world. Click on the link below to find out more about it!

We have started a challenge to round off our learning about Scotland and its main cities. We have been put into groups and provided with a big map to fill with information about 4 of the main cities. This  should be information for tourists and demonstrate the knowledge we have gained. I will post pictures of the finished products next week!

This week Primary six did a super job of organising Sport Relief bake sale. It ran smoothly and we all enjoyed a little sweet treat in preparation of our sporty Friday!

Primary 4 , 4/3 and 5 have also started casting for the school show. We are excited about it and are learning of the cast list today. Thank you to everyone who auditioned.

In other news, look out in Morrisons for Carmondean Primary School’s entries to the Easter competition. They are being displayed in the window of Morrisons at Carmondean and the winners will be chosen next Tuesday.

Primary 4, 11.3.15

This week we went to see the dress rehearsal of the P7 show Hosanna. Those of you who are going to see it will love the songs and the acting! Well done P7! We will be beginning our show practice next week ready for our production of ‘Robin Hood and the Sherwood Hoodies’.

We had Mrs Henry in from Morrisons yesterday giving us a taster of some Scottish foods. We tried things like potato scones, oatcakes, tablet, Ayrshire ham, scotch pies, and cheddar cheese among lots of others!  We were very adventurous with our choices and most people in the class tried everything. We then found out where each piece of food was from in Scotland.

We are looking forward to hearing the class talks over the next couple of weeks we have had power points, drawings, photographs, books and tickets as some of the materials brought in to accompany our talks. They look very interesting so far!

As of Monday our timetable will be changing slightly. We have  indoor PE on a Monday now instead of a Wednesday. Could you ensure appropriate kit be brought on this day. Outdoor PE remains a Tuesday.

Next week, we will be supporting Sport Relief. In order to do this, the P6’s who are organising will be holding a bake sale on Thursday 17th. The cakes will range between 20 and 50p. If you wish to contribute, they will be collecting baking donations next week.

On Friday the 18th to mark the event we will be having a dress down day where children should come to school dressed in sporty clothes. A 50p donation is required for dress down and all proceeds go to Sport Relief. On Friday break time, there will be a beat the teacher challenge which children can pay 50p to take part in also.

What an exciting day we had for World Book Day and some excellent costumes and characters from our favourite books! We took part in a class quiz to see how much we knew about famous books just for a bit of fun in celebrating World Book Day and customised bookmarks to make them our own.


This week we also had fun in health, ordering drinks depending on the amount of sugar we thought they had in them. We were extremely surprised when we seen the results. We have been learning about the effects of sugar on our teeth and are awaiting a visit from the Dental Nurses who have kindly agreed to come in to visit us and give us a talk. This will be followed up nicely next term with healthy eating.


Sport Relief bands will be on sale next week for £1.
