What’s Behind the Door?

To help us find our way and learn about our school, the children have been challenged to find out what is behind every door.

We decided that the best way to do this was to open them and have a look! Yesterday, we went for a walk around school, opening doors and taking photographs. Today, we drew some pictures of what we saw. We are going to make lift the flap signs for all the doors to help visitors see what is on the other side of each one.

Can you see the staircase, the office, Primary 5 working and the Primary 7 classroom with big windows?

Dinosaur Land

Dinosaur Dan left us a letter today. He asked us to write some stories about Dinosaur Land…..so we did!

First, we made drawings of what we thought Dinosaur Land might look like – we though it would have trees, dinosaurs, a river and volcanoes. Next, we told Mrs Jamieson and Mrs Thomas (our Support for Learning teacher) our sentence. We worked very hard to copy the sentence underneath or write on top of the letters. We found out that a sentence needs to start with a capital letter and finish with a full stop, so we used our green (for go) pens and red (for stop) pens to mark the punctuation in our stories. What do you think?
