The nursery children were very happy to have the the big boys and girls from Primary 6 down for a visit. They were very kind and supportive to the children and listened to all their stories and ideas.
We think they will be great Buddies.
We also had a lovely visit from Nanda who came to talk about caterpillars and butterflies. She brought some unexpected guests in the shape of two little puppets which had been specially made for the story. The children listened really well and they were really keen to see the puppets up close.
This week has been possibly our busiest yet this year! We had our Aladdin performances this week and after a dress rehearsal and three performances (one which was a completely full house!) and we think that we are ready for Broadway now.
We’ve been estimating and measuring length in maths and practising using different instruments to help us. Apparently Mr Todd is 180cm tall and the classroom is over 6m wide!
In PE we’ve been outside enjoying the good weather: Miss Gray and Miss Paterson took us for some rounders – with a twist. They also had us trying to solve the human knot problem, which proved to be very tricky.
Hobbies were our focus for German this week – we have learned all about the things that are “gern” (we like) and things we “nicht gern” (don’t like).
This week we performed our Aladdin panto in front of audiences. In Primary 5 we had lots of important roles, for example: acting, organising props and cue cards, singing and dancing. We felt a little nervous about having a big audience but once we had started the show, it was good fun!
Today we have been designing invitations for our Titanic assembly next Friday. We based our designs on Titanic boarding passes. It was important that we remembered to include the 5Ws: why, who, what, when and where. We are looking forward to performing our assembly for our parents next week.
