Maths Week Scotland in Breakfast Club

As a school we participated in Maths Week Scotland which gave us the opportunity to celebrate the importance of Maths in our everyday lives. Some classes went out into the community to learn about Maths in the environment and some classes used our school grounds to focus their learning. We participated in virtual Maths lessons and the Sumdog competition. Please click on the link to see the activities the children participated in at Breakfast Club during Maths Week Scotland.

Come Visit My Class – Virtual Presentations

Good afternoon one and all,

Like last year, we would have been inviting you all to ‘Come Visit My Class’ to share important information and visit your child’s classroom.  Sadly, we are not able to invite you to our classrooms at the moment, therefore we have all been hard at work creating a virtual presentation.

If you click on the link below it will take you to our school website.  From there, you will have access to each class’ virtual presentation.

Home Learning Activities

Good Morning Everyone,

It was lovely to see you all yesterday!  I hope you have enjoyed sharing your book with a member of your household. Inspired by this text, here is a selection of activities for you to do today.

Literacy:

Activity One: Create a book recommendation – Who would enjoy reading this text and why? How many stars would you give it out of five? Remember to justify (give reasons) for your rating.

Activity Two: Draw an ‘above and below’ image with information. For example: above and below the sofa, dinner table, or your favourite place such as in the garden/park.

Numeracy:

Activity One:  Select a numeral from the text. What do you know about it? Use the worksheet included to demonstrate your number knowledge.

Number Detectives

Activity Two: There are lots of numbers to help us understand the size or quantity (the amount) of places and animals in the text. Can you describe yourself with number facts?  Yesterday, I gave you some number facts about myself – favourite number, date of birth, age.. etc.

Health & Wellbeing:

Activity One: Kindness – This text looks at different climates and animals, we know it’s important to look after the world around us. Can you think of a way you can be kind to our planet today – Looking after plants, recycling waste or time with your pet.

Activity Two: Success – Reflect on yesterday, what did you achieve? Did you surprise yourself by how confidently you spoke to the class or maybe you were proud of how much knowledge you demonstrated in Numeracy.  Set yourself a target –  What would you like to successful in this year? I will be delighted to hear about it during Check In tomorrow and support you to achieve it!

Finally, tomorrow we will begin planning and preparing a mini presentation for next week. Take some time today to think about 10 interesting facts about yourself that you would like to share with the class.

I’m excited to see and hear about your learning tomorrow.
Have a great day Primary 4a, Miss Cowan.

Welcome Primary 4a

Dear Primary 4a

Hello Everyone! I hope you have had a good summer and enjoyed spending time with your family in the sunshine.

I’m delighted to be your teacher Primary 4a. I’m sure we will have a great year together! I’m excited to see you all on Wednesday and hear about all your new skills you have developed or talent you have improved – Did you manage to keep your bedroom tidy or have you achieved your highest number of keepy uppies?

I wonder if you can guess what I have learned to do? (Get your thinking caps on as there could be a prize up for grabs!)

Love, Miss Cowan

Welcome Back Everyone!

Hello everyone,

How are you all?  I hope you are all well and have had a lovely summer.  It’s almost time for us all to be back in school together and I just wanted to say how much I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again.  We are all looking forward to another successful school year, full of lots of learning.

Mrs Ramsay ❤

Hello to our lovely school community,

We have missed each and every one of you so much and we can not wait to see you all again this week. I know that we will all work together to ‘Be The Best We Can Be’ when we return to class with each other.

This will be a different start to the year and there will be a few new routines to learn but I am confident that you will all persevere to remember them¸ there will be many successes along the way and most importantly we will show kindness to those around us.

We are here to support you, so please don’t worry. We can wait to welcome you back this week on Wednesday and Thursday.

Mrs Piper
