World Book Day Art Work

After a busy morning at the Schools Singing Competition, where we did ourselves proud and sang beautifully well, we have been working in small groups to create Demon Dentist (by David Walliams) book covers with Mrs McLeod.

A Stitch in Time..

This morning Kyle’s mum (Susan Cameron) came into class to help us create and sew a gift for Mothers Day.  Everyone did fantastically well as for many it was their first experience sewing.

Thank you to Lee and Jill (who came to assist Susan). We are looking forward to seeing them again next Tuesday morning so that we can finish off our gifts.

P3-4 Technology HATS Day was a Lot of Junk!

P3-4 had an enjoyable HATS Day making balloon powered cars from bits of junk.  Using empty pastic water bottles, straws and bottle top lids, we made cars powered by balloons.  Individually, everyone designed and made cars and then we held races. Maggie and Caitriona from Humbie were joint winners of the P3 race, while Murdo won the P4 race.  Matthew N’s car went the furthest travelling well over 2 metres.  At the end of the day we had a Champions Race and Maggie became P3-4 Champion of Champions with her excellently designed and created car.

Angles Are All Around..

P3-4 started a new maths topic this morning.  We will spend the next few weeks looking at angles as well as position and movement.

Today we learned that when two lines meet an angle is formed. We explored the angles all around us in the classroom and out in the playground.

 

Despite the Weather …..

Despite the weather P3-4 had a great morning in Saltoun Big Woods.  We played games (to keep warm!), completed a trail blind fold, spent time with Richard (the Ranger) and went on a treasure hunt – all the time thinking about team work and communication.

We returned to school a little earlier than originally anticipated and warmed up by eating the lentil soup that we made yesterday!
