Pupils should be bringing home their copy of April Newsletter Update today. Unfortunately a photocopier glitch meant that we were unable to get it out in time for our morning Nursery children to take it home, but we have sent it out to all other classes this afternoon and a copy is available to download below.

In February we talked about an upcoming quiz especially for P6. The quiz was all about the Europe and the European Parliament. This year was the first year that Windygoul entered a team. The people who went were Ellie, Luke, James, and Niamh S. They were asked questions about Languages, Maths, Flags, Parliament and Countries. They did really well, scoring 34 out of 60. This was above the average score which was 30. Well done guys!
This week we have had special visitors in our class from Primary 6/7 while the Primary 7s have been at camp. We enjoyed spending time with some of the other Primary 6s.
We have been working hard converting Mixed Numbers to Improper Fractions and finding a fraction of a number in Maths this week. We have been learning this by completing questions in our jotters and playing games such as dominoes and connect four.
We have also been learning about different Human Rights Campaigners such as Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Desmond Tutu and Abraham Lincoln. We are making posters to share our learning with others in the class.
We also dressed up as our favourite book characters for World Book Day on Tuesday. Some of our characters included, Matilda, Gangsta Granny, Dorks from Dork Diaries and The Cat

In February P5A went to the Royal Observatory for their school trip about space we saw the big blue telescope and it is one of the world’s biggest telescopes. We learnt how rainbows are formed. We also made our own paper rockets in partners.
We launched them to try land on the cardboard Moon. When we were done looking at the telescope we got to Rome around the place and played with all the stuff for an example we had to try and form a rainbow with blocks.
