Today the morning children loved our new Pirate theme. We played in a pirate ship and went on a journey to Neverland. We looked for pirate treasure using a map.
In the afternoon, the children enjoyed exploring the garden and finding the different animals and insects which live there using magnifying glasses. Some children planted bulbs in pots they decorated themselves. We sang Incy Wincy Spider and read the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
P5-7 have been focussing on the school motto of “Live, Believe and Celebrate” for their upcoming assembly on Wednesday 9th September. They have been working in groups to create a song which represents the school motto and participating in lots of design tasks related to the topic.
They have started to take part in the Westfield walk, which is when the pupils run, walk or jog 1/2 mile. They hope to build up to running a full mile at least 3 times a week.
P1/2 have been getting off to a good start with their new teacher Miss Bredin. In their work they have been drawing pictures to go with their writing. They have been working on their phonics. They have been writing about what they do on sunny days. They have also been learning their sounds and the thing that they found most exciting was learning how to use the ipad!
P3\4 have been learing about Ollies options to know about different options. They did some portraits and pointillism in art. All the classes have been learning some French and Spanish with Mrs Agini doing French and Ms Ferguson doing Spanish. In maths they have been enjoying doing adding and subtracting and completing flag problem solving. They have also been practising their two times tables. They have been enjoying doing number codes. They have been illustrating class rules also known as the Class Charter.
Today some children used a mirror to study their faces then painted self portraits. These fabulous pictures will be on display for all to see later this week.
There was a lot of singing today! Ducks in the water tray inspired singing Five Little Ducks and the pea pods picked yesterday led us to sing Five Little Peas in a Peapod Pressed. Both of the songs helped us count to five.
Primary 7s receieved their new shirts and ties from Mrs McKenzie at our first assembly on Wednesday. They looked really proud when they were presented them and we think they look really smart – what about you?
The sun was shining today so we spent much of the day playing outside! For snack, the children enjoyed the leek and potato soup that they made yesterday. Delicious. The hospital corner was popular today, with many patients being treated throughout the day.
