P7 have been working as co-operative teams of 4 today. They had to create a display of their understanding of the class Novel “Tribes” using their Book Detective skills. They all had individual roles as well as a team task and were all fully accountable for the end result. The social skill that they were practising was good communication within the team. How well could they make decisions and work to the deadline? When they presented their posters, they were peer assessed with two stars and a wish. I was very impressed with the quality of the delegation discussions in the teams!
The Primary 7′s have been learning about the features and origins of Samba Music with Miss Mailer. They played a mixture of rhythms on a variety of percussion instruments and responded to whistle signals from the Samba Band leader. Their performance was fantastic!
The next Parent Council meeting will be held this Wednesday (1st Oct) at 18:30 in the staff room. Items on the agenda include the recruitment of a new head teacher, the after school club plus much more which all need as much parental input as possible.
The meeting is open to all parents / carers. Please feel free to come along.
We have been having great fun in primary two investigating our houses and homes topic. Yesterday, we were working with our co-operative learning partners to create our dream homes. We had to be careful to make sure that we put the right items into the correct room! Well done P2, they look fantastic.
