Well done to the members of our Football Team who enjoyed a training session at East Mains, a look behind the scenes and a game on the pitch at Easter Road on Saturday – I was very proud of you all! Mrs G Thank you Hibernian FC!
We all had lots of fun today at assembly learning about all the great work Pudsey does to support Children in Need. Back by popular demand was our Teacher Challenge!! This year the staff had to design and make a flag for Pudsey and Blush. The winners were Mr Aitken and Mrs Macdonald!!! We raised £222 – thank you everyone!
This week we were able to get outside for our football coaching with the Sports Development Officer. It was a great session with lots of opportunities for everyone to develop the skills from the first session two weeks ago. We were also shown and got to work on learning some new ways of controlling the ball. Team work skills were very important this week and a lot of the activities focussed on working together to achieve a goal.
We had a fantastic class trip to the National Museum of Scotland where we took part in a workshop about Death in Ancient Egypt. Highlights were Peter, Mhairi and Nicole playing the part of the Egyptian god, Ammit, with her head of a crocodile and her body of a lioness and a hippo! We got to see and handle some artefacts from Ancient Egypt. Some of these were extremely old and had actually been wrapped up inside a mummy’s bandages. Tina, from the museum, gave us a really interesting and dramatic talk about the customs around death in Ancient Egypt and there were lots of opportunities for us to take part and to share our knowledge. Miss Ross and Mrs Peck were very proud of the class and how well they knew their topic! We arrived early at the museum and enjoyed having time to have a look at some of the other exhibitions before the workshop started. A really successful day.
Primary 3 enjoyed a workshop led by Marie this week with a focus on jobs in and related to the construction industry. There were lots of tasks to try out where we got to think about the role of architects, engineers, builders and quantity surveyors. We had puzzles to solve and we used our problem solving strategies, our skills in role play, our knowledge of measure and our ability to estimate to make decisions about what needed to be done and how.
On Monday we did the empty number line, and also in the afternoon we did badminton and we did spelling in the morning and then we did some AR. On Tuesday we did line graph and later on we orbit + rotation. On Wednesday we did sun clocks, then music and French at the end of the day. And on Thursday we did French in the morning and after break we did newspaper reports then on Friday we did the tidy up the playground .
Chloe’s favourite thing was doing French, because it was my first time and I learnt how to say new things.
Robyn’s favourite thing was playground tidy up because I thought it was fun!
Note from Miss Lockhart
P4 have had another great week developing to our bank of strategies for addition, finding new ways to display information and thinking about orbit and rotation.
We started to learn French and so far can say Hello in lots of different ways and also ask and say our names. We have loved doing all of this with our Meet and Greet Song too!
Next week we are moving on in our ‘We are Scientists’ topic to look at GERMS! Lots of icky experiments to come!
