P5b’s First Week Back

P5 have returned to school ready to learn. We have started the term by thinking about our new IDL topic  Healthy Living.  We looked at what we thought made a person Healthy and created a list of suggestions and questions under two headings- Mental Health and Physical Health.

In Numeracy we all got really excited when we tried identifying a fraction of a shape and finding equivalent fractions, for the first time.

 

Expressive Arts After School Activities

I wish to inform you of an exciting, new, after-school Arts Programme which has started in Pinkie St Peter’s Primary School in partnership with East Lothian Council Arts Service. All pupils are encouraged to attend a weekly programme of arts activities run by specialist tutors, enabling skills development in the following areas, music, dance and drama.

Studies have shown that regular participation in organised arts activity is linked to raise educational attainment and improved health and wellbeing in children. Every pupil at the school has been allocated a place on the programme. Pupils are allocated one day and one activity by the school for the 2018 autumn term. Each new term, pupils will change activity so that they are able to experience all three art forms over the course of the academic year.

All activities are offered free of charge.

We currently still have spaces available in the sessions listed below. If you have not already signed up to one of the activities and would like to attend please collect a form from Nurture Room 2.

P5b Snow Day Challenge

Good morning,
I hope you are all having fun and staying safe in the snow!

If it is safe to do so and you have parents’ permission, build a shelter out of snow. Take some photographs and write a set of detailed instructions on how to build a snow shelter. You can use your pictures to help with your instructions.

Write a list or draw a picture  of all the items you would need, to survive in your snow shelter, if it was the only source of shelter you had.

Complete the story:- The snow kept falling, it had been three days of gales, wind and freezing temperatures. The apocalypse had begun…….

Remember to use good openers.

Tam O’Shanter

P5, P6 and P7 were treated to a performance of Tam O’Shanter today as part of their Scottish topic. Craig visited the school and talked to us about the origins of the poem and then he acted it out, making us laugh and jump.  We learned a lot about how to perform and make a poem come to life as well as a bit about life in the time of Robert Burns and the story of the poem.
