We’ve had a busy month in P6 with karate and tae kwon do tasters, weight, capacity and volume investigations, box making, newspaper article writing, times table challenges, symmetrical pattern creating, co-ordinate work, WW2 presentations, poppy making, area of a right angled triangle bingo, circuits, German, rounding, making human decimal number lines, World of Work week, book reports, learning for sustainability, Children in Need Day, poetry and bridge making (more of which later!).

Well done P6.   You have all worked immensely hard and deserve a well earned rest… until Monday at least!

We discussed the idea of having our very own story blanket in class so we could sit together, be cosy and share stories.  We each made our own blanket patch using our favourite colours, materials, patterns and shapes and then we joined all the patches together to make a story blanket to display in class.  While we were busy a mysterious parcel arrived and inside was our very own story blanket – we wonder where it came from!!!!  We shared our learning about the story blanket in assembly this week.

Robot Rumpus in P1

We loved the story and discussed what kind of robot we would like to have.  We then designed our own robots and labelled all their special features.  We had robots which could brush your hair, wash the windows, dress you, iron your clothes and clean the whole house …. if only!!!

What’s the time Mr Wolf?

P6 Strive together

This afternoon, all of our Primary 6′s were given the opportunity to work outdoors together down at Foxlake.  The children took part in an archery challenge, a blindfolded follow my leader, a game of hide and seek and arts and crafts activities.  Everyone had the most fanstastic time, supported once again by the fabulous people at Strive.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Book week Scotland starts in P1

100_4336 100_4337 100_4338 100_4339What a great start to book week Scotland in P1. Today we all visited the library to meet the author Judy Hayman.  She has written two books about a dragon family they are titled Quest for a Cave and Quest for a Friend.  Judy told us about the books and showed us some of the fabulous illustrations.  She also read some extracts from her book.  We really enjoyed meeting her and have bought one of her books to read in class so we can find out what adventures the dragons have.  The children were all given their gift packs which contain three lovely picture books, an activity book and some pencils.  We will be reading the books in class this week and voting for our favourite at the end of the week.  Big thanks to our mums who helped us get safely to the library and back again and also to Heather and the library staff for making us so welcome and organising the event.

World of Work Week

As part of world of work week primary 4, along with other classes, enjoyed visits from three parents. Jessica’s dad, Jamie’s mum and Nicholas and Tamsin’s dad came to talk about their work. All the talks were very interesting and certainly made the children think about their future careers. Many thanks to the parents who came in, it was a great experience for the children.

World of Work Week in Nursery!

A massive thank you to Beth the fire fighter who visited nursery today to talk all about her job. The nursery children were very excited to have such an important visitor as part of their learning about people who help us.

P4 Recorders!

P4 today started their recorder lessons – great effort everyone! Mrs G :)

Firefighter Beth talks about her new role

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe infant classes had a very interesting talk from Beth today. She visited the school to tell the children about how she became a part time firefighter.
Beth explained how you have to be fit and be able to think/read quickly. She talked about the other skills you also have to have to be able to join the fire service. She said that having a very understanding family and very supportive friends was a big part of being able to do the job
Beth told the children all the different jobs firefighters do in addition to fighting fires. She said they even rescued a horse one day!
The children had lots of good questions ranging from, How did she feel on her first call out? to Does she drive the fire appliance?
Every one (teachers too!) thoroughly enjoyed the visit and hope she’ll come back again (to talk!)
