This week the P5s have been working more on Pitch, Pulse, Magic and the P6s joined in. We had some bottles and filled them with a specific amount of water then blew across the top to make a sound. We tried to play ‘Old Macdonald Had A Farm’ but couldn’t manage it. We played all sorts of notes including: F, F sharp, B, B flat and much more. It was a lot of fun listening to everyone play different tunes.
On Wednesday, Primary 6 went on a trip to North Berwick High School for a tag rugby festival. We also had some tasters with Fergus Pringle when the P5s of the 5/6 joined in. Mrs Jones asked us to describe the festival in one word:
The p5s from p5/6, with the p5s from p5/4 enjoyed a Pitch, Pulse Magic workshop. We heard the piano and the flute. We closed our eyes and imagined what the music could be. We also had a go at conducting where we could make it higher or lower and stop and start. At the end somebody asked if we could dance while they played some music and so everybody got to get up and dance. We can’t wait till the next one.
After learning some ClubGolf skills in PE over the past few weeks, we got the chance to use some of these skills on the Gullane Children’s Course today. It was great fun, although very windy! Thanks to Kate Green, the Golf Development Officer, and everyone else who came along to help.
We are very grateful to Iain Gray MSP for coming in to talk to us today about his work as a Member of the Scottish Parliament, and for answering all our questions. We are looking forward to visiting the Scottish Parliament at the end of the month.
We have been enjoying learning and practising our golf skills in preparation for our outing on 16th March.
Yesterday, we had great fun in our dance lesson with Louise. We learned some great warm-up exercises and different moves and then in small groups, we combined different types of movement into short dance routines.
Here is a copy of the class Newsletter sent home today, giving a few updates and key things to note for the term ahead.
In the final writing lesson of the year, P5/6 wrote acrostic poems about “Snowflakes” and were all hoping for some snow during the holidays. The poems looked very pretty on the wall, decorated with some hand-made paper snowflakes.
