P3/4 have been enjoying the Apple Festival. Here are some photos from the Orchard Orienteering.
We’ve had a great start to the year in P 3/4!
To bring in the half term and celebrate our apple harvest we are holding our Orchard Festival all this week.
We will take part in lots of apple based activities covering all aspects of the curriculum.
Maths – Already, we have looked at the number of apples produced by each tree in the orchard.
Collaborative Art – We have also created an apple tree collage. Each member of the class painted a tile which, when joined together, made a giant apple tree jigsaw. It looks really effective.
We’re looking forward to the rest of the week – especially the apple orienteering.
Niamh This week I really enjoyed the novel because lots of exciting things have happened in the story and I want to hear more. The PE challenge for keepie uppies, holding a plank and stacking a tower of cups were great fun but tricky too. The school museum was interesting and I liked seeing what all the children had donated. My favourite was Dirleton Tours project and my research about the Kelpies and finding the video of it being built in only 90 days !
Oscar I’ve enjoyed the Firework Maker’s daughter because it is adventurous and fun to listen to and you never know what’s coming next. I’ve enjoyed the Radio sounds programmes and also maths – it was really fun and not too hard or easy just in the middle. I enjoyed the museum that there were lots of different facts about different objects that Ive never seen before.
Rudi I liked hearing The Firework Makers daughter story and I liked doing the drawings.
Niamh This week i really enjoyed the unplugged day on Wednesday because it was so sunny. i read and finished my book called Toto the Ninja Cat and the Cheese Heist. I also played the minion game outside which Miss Nicholson sent us which was lots of fun and I sent a photo of me doing the crab/bridge. Jim Field’s art was a bit tricky for me this week. I also listened to some music which Mrs Askew asked me to do which was really nice. The dolphin radio show was interesting and I liked writing about my locket for the museum.
