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.

This week in P5b

This week in  Primary 5b we have been busy presenting the Christmas Show and preparing for the Showcase. We all had a different station in the showcase and were responsible for sharing our knowledge of WW2 with  all our parents, Grandparents and other visitors. We had so many positive comments and really enjoyed the WW2 Topic.  We would like to thank all carers and parents for their wonderful support all through the year.  We would like to wish everyone a happy holiday and a prosperous new year.

Christmas Jumper Day Friday 15th December

On Friday 15 December we’re inviting all pupils to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

The whole school and nursery will be taking part, with everyone getting the chance to show the world their silly side by wearing their favourite festive knits for the day.

We’re asking pupils to make a £1 donation, or whatever they can give, to help save children’s lives around the world.

The money they raise will help Save the Children give the world’s forgotten children a brighter future. It could help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.

And you won’t need to splash out on snazzy new sweaters to join in the fun – simply decorate an old woolly to create your own crafty masterpiece, or wear something festive.

We’d really appreciate your help to make Christmas Jumper Day a huge success.

With your support we’re looking forward to a woolly great day!
