60 Second Update

 

Nursery

We were celebrating St Andrew’s Day in the nursery this week. We read “the Gruffalo” in Scots and on Thursday Donald’s dad came in to play the bagpipes for us. Thanks Bruce!

P1B

P1B have been reading stories about owls and learning about day and night. We are interested in the stars and planets.  We have also been looking at 3D shapes and finding out about their properties.  We  have been playing games involving counting money.

 

P1R Rainbow Targets

Each week in P1R we have 6 target activities to complete. Each task is linked to a specific area of the curriculum.

Once we have undertaken an activity we pop a coloured lollipop stick into our rainbow cup. If by the end of the week we collect each of the 6 coloured sticks  we win a rainbow sticker. It’s good for us to take responsibility for our own learning!

 

Primary 2

We have been decorating the desert scene and donkeys for our nativity artwork which is based around ‘Little Donkey’.

We have also been trying on our nativity costumes, and practising our lines on the stage every day.

We designed our own streets this week, making sure that we have a source of food, water, and power (if desired!)

Primary 3

Well, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and we’ve already had the glitter out! We’ve made a beautiful ‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing’ Christmas panel for the school hall, we love it! We’ve been practising singing all the songs for the concert and hope to see you then!

 

 

 

Primary 4

P4 have been making their Christmas Banner ‘We Three Kings’.  Every class is making one related to the songs from our Christmas nativity and they will be displayed in the hall. As part of our Big Writing work, we have been writing reports for aliens about children’s activities on earth.

This week the Primary 6 class have been doing their group presentations. They all then had to give peer feedback to each other. The feedback is very useful for their individual presentations that will be taking place next week.

Primary 5

We have been continuing our Big Writing adventure looking at how to write reports about our superheroes. We have finished our Jacobite topic and finally found out that the Jacobites did not eat cheesecake!

Primary 6

This week the Primary 6 class have been doing their group presentations. They all then had to give peer feedback to each other. The feedback is very useful for their individual presentations that will be taking place next week.
