Congratulations to all Poetry recital winners! Hadyn was the winner from P7b! She clearly worked hard on learning the words to Robert Burns ‘To a Mouse’ and gave a confident and entertaining recital!
We have also completed our Robert Burns art – we turned Robert Burns into a Lego figure and used the graphic technique of pixilation as inspiration as we painted! We had to create different shades of colours, adding black, white and mixing colours together to make new ones. We took our time, and we are glad we did because the results look effective – We think he looks pretty cool! Have a look at some!
Here is what we have been learning in P4a this week. We would love to hear your feedback so please leave a comment on the post and we can read it when we come to school!

“Yesterday we went to the secret garden. It was to find out the best filter for cleaning water. The first was charcoal and that didn’t go very well. The next was gravel which wasn’t too successful either. The last was sand which was better, but didn’t go as we expected in our hypothesis.” – Jayden
“The materials might have been too dirty, so that might be why it didn’t work as well.” – Emma
“Last week we focussed on poetry and Caitlyn and Maja represented the class to go down to Mrs Ogden and Mrs Rae”. – Elli
