Measure in P3

Wednesday, June 26th, 2019

In maths we have had lots of fun studying elements of measure.  We have been learning about the different ways we can measure length, weight and capacity.  We know how to use rulers, metre sticks and trundle wheels.  We used measuring jugs to measure the capacity of different containers.

Primary 5

What a busy week in Primary 5!
This week we enjoyed a theatre performance of Oliver in the school as well as a whole school showing of the original Mary Poppins. This allowed us to showcase our good audience skills as well as being lots of fun.
On Wednesday we had our whole school trip to the Safari Park! Great fun was had by all looking at the animals as well as fun on the peddle boats, zip slid park and big slide.
Thursday afternoon was our very last John Muir experience in Primary 5. We had lots of fun lighting a fire and toasting marshmallows to celebrate our achievements.
We participated in a lovely Primary 7 Mass today which allowed us to reflect on the changes that are going to happen after the summer when we move into Primary 6!

Eco Committee – 14/06/19

Friday, June 14th, 2019

This being the last Eco-Committee of the session, we took advantage of the weather and went to the garden to transport the final bit of soil for the last vegetable planter. Parts of the group were doing different jobs, from litter picking to preparing the small vegetable plot, to painting the planters. Great job everyone, and we all look forward to seeing the garden grow and develop next session.

The boys were again in the garden, planting more seeds! They really had to be careful with these seeds as they were a lot smaller than the last ones! What a great job the boys did, managing to place the seeds ever so carefully in the channel made.  This week they planted Cabbage and lettuce seeds.


Social Media and Events Committee

Friday, June 14th, 2019

This was our last committee group meeting of the year. We took this time to evaluate what went well this year and what we would like to do differently next year. This was a really good session and we will keep our ideas saved until next term.
To finish off we all had a dance off in the classroom!

Primary 5

Friday, June 14th, 2019

This week we planted Aspen trees in growing trays and put them in our school garden. Luke from the Forth Rivers Project and Peter from EADHA came to help us. They told us all about why it is important to plant trees near the river, especially Aspen trees. We will need to look after them until next term so we will be in Primary 6 when we get to plant them.
Eilidh – it was really fun planting aspen trees.
Alyssa – I enjoyed it because we got to go outside and we will be helping the river in Polbeth.


In our John Muir area we made Journey Sticks and we finished making our above ground pond. Journey sticks are where we get a stick and tie a bit of wool or string round it then add things to it that we found in the area that reminded us of things we have done.
In Maths we were looking at Probability, this will help us with life skills.
Inspired by Newsround we participated in Drama activities about Anne Frank. Some of us had good knowledge on the subject already and we shared our thoughts and ideas with each other.

Great afternoon for Planting!

The pupils were in the garden this week, with the weather being much better. They prepared some of the soil, mixed it with sand, planted Runner Beans, and finished with painting the wooden make-shift recycled worktops in the garden!  Lots of learning and fun!

French Phrase of the Fortnight – Mid June

Friday, June 7th, 2019

Pierre has gone to Paris to watch the Women’s World Cup 2019!

Luckily, Primary 4 told him all that he needed to know before he went!

Our new phrase is: Regardons la Coupe du Monde Féminine!

It means: We are watching the Women’s World Cup!

Look out for the phrase around the school! Why not use it when you are watching?
