What has been happening in P1C?

What has been happening in P1C?

We have been creating houses for the 3 little pigs using a variety of media. Lexi said that it was ‘great fun!’. We used red card for the brick house, spaghetti and straws for the straw house and wooden sticks for the wooden house.

We have been enjoying learning our numbers in class. We have liked it so much that some of us are playing ‘teachers’ and using the numbers to play some games. Maia said ‘I like pretending to be the teacher and teach people numbers!’

Have a look at some  of our photos:

P.1B Newsround

Last week we were drawing pictures (Ali), and playing in the water thing (Joshua). We built houses for the Three Little Pigs with sticks, paper, and spaghetti (Caleb, Didi and Michaela), and we learned about numbers (Harry). We were also being quiet in the library (Lily)! We were making butterflies at home on the tables in the class for symmetry (Skye), and we played in the castle (Michaela).

Thanks also to Imogen who told us about the time she met a beautiful owl!

Finally, well done to Brooke, Michaela and Harry who all received a certificate for completing their weekly Rainbow Tasks. Another busy week in P.1B!

Outdoor Art

P7 have been exploring the art of Andy Goldsworthy, who uses natural materials to build elaborate sculptures and patterns.  We looked at the style he used, the patterns in his art and how he made his art.

We then took on the challenge of creating our own nature art in the school grounds.  Some of the challenges we came across were finding materials and the wind destroying our sculptures!

Miss Nuttall’s Wedding!!

Dear parents/carers,

As some of you may be aware, I am getting married in the October holidays! This little note is just to let you know that I will be changing my name and it will be Mrs Davidson! Also, some of the children have been asking me if they can come and see me on my wedding day. If you do wish to come along to see me going in, you are more than welcome! The wedding is on Sunday 15th October at the Ghillie Dhu (Rutland Street – next to the Huxley bar) in Edinburgh and I will be arriving about 1.50pm (if I am on time!!)

Have a nice holiday when it comes,

Miss Nuttall

Learning in P4A

This week P4a have been writing creatively – using our Interdisciplinary stimulus of Matilda.  We wrote an imaginative letter of complaint to Miss Trunchbull for taking us on a terrible school trip…

‘ It didn’t seem much like a trip to me.  It was more like a disgraceful punishment…We all expected a lovely relaxing swim but you sharks in the pool which made me so furious!’ – Megan

‘I can’t take it anymore!’ – Bobbi

‘ I didn’t like the school trip because you were torturing us and you made us clean your shoes…I hope you stop being nasty and evil.’ – Bruce


We also used this as an opportunity to include some of our ambitious adjectives from our word wall.
