P4 Music With O-Duo – By 5/6 Reporters

Preparing for the School Show.

A while ago P4 were being taught by O – Duo ( two drummers )  and they worked on making different sounds to different  beats  to make a show for the school .

They learned different patterns and  were given signals to do different things with the drums . They had words to go with the rhythm and to keep in time. The teachers and pupils who saw the performance really enjoyed it.

Brunton Hall

When they went to the Brunton Hall they all enjoyed themselves . Harriot enjoyed beating the drums . Kirstin enjoyed playing =the calves . Liam enjoyed playing the cow bells. Rory enjoyed playing the shakers .  Millie thought it was fun and enjoyable.  Jessica liked playing the drums with her friends.

Everyone said it was very loud and noisy but very fun.

They were with other schools from East lothian at the Brunton Hall.

Optional Homework Tasks in Google Classroom

I hope you have all been safe during the last few days when school has been closed.

Parents might not be aware that there are some ‘optional’ tasks for P5/6 pupils that have been posted in Google Classroom.

Pupils just need to log in to see them.

Take care!

Christmas Show – Jokes, Songs And Best Bits

Our Christmas show was very good. I’m sure everyone will agree.  The P5s and P6s were the choir. It was very amusing and there was many jokes which made the audience laugh. It was a version of Jack and The Beanstalk in which the animals all talk.Since It was a Pantomime there was lots  of jokes and songs

19 out of 22 children asked liked the play which is 86.4% of them. The same amount of people liked the songs. The Hen Crossing The Road Joke by Brewster The Rooster (Alex Smith) was 15 out of the 22 people asked’s favourite joke. Many other people’s favourite joke was the bit where The Strange Old Man’s (Tom Mackay) joke where he was selling Jack (Alfie Auld) the magic beans. He went A YES in a weird but funny voice.

Music & Christmas Show Survey

This year the Christmas show was Jack and the Beanstalk . The P5s and 6s were the CHOIR SINGERS , and the p7s were doing the acting 

in  I.C.T  everyone has been doing surveys in their reporting teams . My team members are : Angus H , Simra N ( me ), and Oli S.  We did a survey on the music in the Christmas show . We asked questions like : What was your favourite song is theChristmas show ?   If you were to rate the show how many stars , 1 , 2 , 3 , ?, what was your favourite joke ? just small questions like that . Here are some people’s responses :

For favourite songs there was 1% for Have You Heard The Story , 3% liked Gullible Fool , and 0% liked down on the farm,  but the most popular song with 40% was Off  We Go To Market . There was of course a lot of other songs , but for the the other people who liked the other songs , they just clicked OTHER . 

For the rating about half the class / people surveyed that the LOVED the show and the rest just put something like It was good , it was alright , or kind of disliked it which is OK because people have their own opinions .

For the jokes most people said that Brewter’s Joke was the funniest , and i agree , and everyone else probably said that they liked Tom’s Joke the best.

Art Survey Results By Emma M, Isla M and Jack A

In school our art teacher is Mr Connell.  Our normal teacher Mr McEwan does give us some art projects to do in class but Mr Connell gives us big projects that we continue on a Friday.  We usually sketch out the drawing and then add colour and shading to our drawings.  Almost all of us love art!

In I.C.T. everyone in the class did a survey based on something that we are currently doing in class or something that we have done.  Isla M, Jack A and Emma M (that’s me) were in a group together and we made up a survey based on Art.  We surveyed the whole class using Google Forms.  Here are the results from our survey:

We all answered that we were working on Festival Of Light as an answer for the question what is your art project right now.

14 people liked art, 3 people didn’t like art and 4 people thought art was okay.

6 people liked abstract art, 5 people put other, 7 people liked pop art and 3 people liked 3d art.

14 people didn’t think art is their favourite subject but 5 people thought that art is their favourite subject. 

38% of people loved the art that Mr Connell gave them, 57% liked it and only one person didn’t really enjoy Art.

Dancing in P.E – by Lily, Daniel and Harry

Every year we learn Scottish dances in P.E with Miss Gordon. We then do  the dances at our Christmas party.  This year we wanted to find out if people enjoy dancing so we did a survey for the class using Google Forms.

This is what we found out;   The cheeseburger is the favourite dance, with 10/12 voting for it. Next favourites were Peel the Banana and the Virginia Real with 3 liking each.  More than half the people in the class like dancing.  2 people like dancing with the opposite gender while over 90% didn’t. Almost 58% like Scottish dancing.  23.8% of the people we surveyed dance out of school and 19% used to.   

Rachel said,”My least favourite thing about dancing is the dances go on for SO long!”

Kayleigh said,”My favourite thing about dancing is that we get to learn lods of dances.”
