Orchard Festival

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.

P 4/5 Home Learning Log 1.5.2020

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.

Sam I have really enjoyed Dirleton Primary Travel, I loved adding to my slides every day. I also enjoyed making my poster to illustrate a food chain. It has been great fun looking at everybody’s museum items, there is some pretty cool stuff in the museum.
Archie I liked doing the slides about Scotland.
