P6 In The Great Outdoors

It’s that time of year when everything is springing into life so P6 took the opportunity of getting outdoors to enjoy it.  We have been tidying up the outdoor courtyard and have planted some seeds.  We are taking care of them daily and recorded any changes we see.  We have also been outdoors with our rugby lessons, over the past three weeks, we have been learning to pass, run with the ball, attack and defend.  We took our maths outdoors too, we have been learning about angles.  We looked at art by Kandinsky in which he uses angles, shapes, parallel and perpendicular lines.  We then went outdoors and made angles using different natural materials and finally we created some artwork in the style of Kandinsky using angles, shapes and lines.

Karate and reading buddies in P1

Busy afternoon in P1 today.  We had a taster session of karate with Chris Ewing we were learning some basic moves, punches and kicks.  Great fun!!  We then met up with our P7 buddies, we visited the library to get some new books to read and then spent some time with our buddies reading and talking about the kind of books we like to read.

We also had a visit from some cuddly bears called  Issac and Newton from Generation Science who taught us all about forces.  What a great workshop, we learnt about pushing, pulling, gravity, floating, sinking and friction and had lots of fun along the way.

Thanks to all the parents who handed in junk.  We have been learning about robots and how useful they can be to humans.  We looked at different designs of robots, like the robot vacum cleaner, the amazing Asimo and we had a visit from Robosapien.  We then got down to designing and creating our own robots.


Thank you to all of my pupils for planning and organising the whole school Potted Sports Day this afternoon! I was very proud of the way in which you eagerly worked with all age groups, displayed excellent teamwork, took on the responsibility for each and every activity and made the whole event such a success!

WELL DONE everybody!
