Christmas is truly underway here!
We are rehearsing lines, learning songs, making wall displays and ordering goodies for parties.
Please make sure to get your tickets for the Christmas performance.
This week we have been making bunting to celebrate St Andrew’s Day, and practising singing “3 craws” and “Ye cannae shove yer granny off the bus”. We made vegetable soup and it was delicious
Primary 1R and B
The children are so excited about starring in the nativity! They know their roles and we have had our first run through on the stage. In class we are busy learning the songs. Costumes will be looked out next week! We have started a new study book – “Owl Babies”. What interesting fact can your child find out about owls?
This week we started our nativity rehearsals. We have all got parts and are excited about learning our lines and songs.
We’ve been feeling creative this week. P3 had great fun trying to create Rangoli patterns just using their fingers and salt… they did really well, it’s a lot harder than the experts made it look! Next week, we’ll try to do it using 4 different colours of sand. We’ve also been busy learning more about place value and have made ‘place value spiders’ to show our learning on our maths display wall.
As part of our Big Writing, we wrote a letter to Tiger to tell him our opinions about the aliens coming to earth. We wrote in four paragraphs and used sentence openers and good punctuation.
We have been learning about electricity as part of our science work. We read lots of books and found out where electricity comes from and we wrote down everything in a mindmap. We learned how to make the lamp turn by making a circuit. We used wires, bulbs, a switch and some batteries. When you only use one battery and two bulbs, the light is dim. We also learned about electrons. They don’t like each other as they are negative and stay away from each other.
This week, we were given our own username and password for Google Docs. We typed out sentences about what we have been doing. We are going to use these for an online profile.
P5 have been learning the Canadian barn dance and the dashing white sergeant. We have danced both dances to traditional and modern music. We have been writing diary entries for our superheroes as part of our Big Writing adventure.
Primary 6 have enjoyed working together to create our Christmas display for in the gym hall.
They have also been gathering information about famous Victorians for their group presentations.
After the excitement of the visit’s to the Sheriff’s Court last week, this week has been a lot quieter. We are working on creating an object to promote Scotland. As well as creating 6 of the actual object, each group also has to create a 30 second TV advert, a poster and leaflet and prepare a sales presentation. Should be fun!
