P3/4 organs

P3/4 focussed on the heart this week as part of the human body. We researched, listened to informative videos and read a shared text together to discover more. We used our knowledge to continue to develop our skills in chronological reports

P4/5 Haiku Poems

In P4/5 we are learning about different kinds of poems.  This week our focus was Haiku poetry.  We had to use our knowledge of syllables to write these poems.  We learnt that we have to use 5 syllables for line 1, 7 syllables for line 2  and 5 syllables for line 3.  Here is a small sample of the wonderful Haiku’s the children wrote in class.

Scotland

With Robert Burns day on Tuesday 25th January, we have been learning about Scotland. This week we have been making Tartan  cutting and then weaving paper, painting tartan with brushes and rollers, singing Scottish rhymes and learning Scottish words, stories, making shortbread and dressing up.

We will be adding more pictures of new activities next week.

P4/5 Gymnastics

This week P4/5 were exploring difference balance activities in the first week of their new gymnastics block.  They all worked really well with their partners. We heard and saw some lovely supportive conversations and behaviours.  Well done P4/5!

P2 Community Walk

This week we went a walk around our community. We seen everyone’s homes and discussed the different buildings in the community, such as the community hub and shops. We followed a map of Whitecraig during our journey. We used a key to plot specific places on our maps.

Today we drew pictures on the different places we seen whilst on our walk. We used photographs of these places to help us with our drawings.
