This week we have been having fun in PE. We have started gymnastics and this week we have been focusing on balancing. Have a look at some of our pictures below.
We have also been learning about the body and today we were learning about hygiene. We were learning about how germs travel easily. We put a tiny amount of glitter on one hand and when we put our hands together the glitter (or the germs!) spread to the other hand! We couldn’t believe how easily they could spread! We had to give our hands a really good wash to get the germs off. We were learning about the importance of hand washing!
The first cross-country club session started out the blocks with great success this morning, despite the weather! 36 pupils met half an hour before the bell to warm up and run at least 1.5km around our huge school grounds!
A big congratulations to all the pupils who came along who seemed to really enjoy it and who gave it their all. Also, a massive thanks to Miss Hunter, Miss Smillie and Miss Christie who came out with the large group and ran too, to encourage and make sure everyone was ok.
We will meet again, outside the gym hall fire doors at 8.25 next Tuesday. … A quick reminder that pupils must be wearing suitable kit for all weathers to school, and then there is time to get changed after to school uniform.
Apologies to everyone for the late notice and inconvenience but we have had to make the decision to close the nursery this afternoon due to flooding from plumbing.
We hope to be open again tomorrow. Please watch here for further information or phone the school in the morning.
We have been very busy this week, this is what we have been up to:
Leon – we have been learning about the emergent layer of the rainforest, we made animals!
Zak – we have learnt the sound ‘th’
Maia – we have been learning what to do on the computers.
Joshua – we have been learning how to do take away sums.
Sophia – we were learning about what is inside your body.
Caladh – We have been learning with our numbers to 50.
Mishka – We have doctors stuff in our role play and I like it!
This week we have been finding out about King William, the Duke of Normandy building one of the first castles.
We also created an animal shape poem. We had to trace round the outline of an animal and then write inside it. We tried to include similes, onomatopoeia, adjectives, connectives and alliteration – so we really had to think, but are getting good at creating our own ideas.
We have been looking at literal questions and inferential questions too using a text. We know that the answer to a literal question is found in the text, but you have to use clues in the text to work out the answer to an inferential question.
Have a good weekend!
P3a and Miss Christie
