P6/7 #Easter 

P6/7 are studying the Easter story in RME.  Today, we looked at the aspect of betrayal. We discussed how it must feel when you are betrayed by somebody very close and special to you in Big Talk. In Big Writing we wrote diary entries by Pontius Pilate, Peter and Judas to show the different perspectives of the same day. We worked in groups to complete a clozed procedure Easter passage. 

   

         

We Need Your Help!

It is now more than 6 months since we launched a Learning Journal for every pupil in the school. This is where you can find regular updates about your child’s learning, along with photographs and an end of year summary on their progress. The Learning Journal replaces our traditional end of year paper report.

It is really important that you are able to access these and hopefully leave a comment or two for your child to see.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ACCESS THE LEARNING JOURNAL PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT AT THE OFFICE AND WE WILL ENSURE THAT YOU CAN GET LOGGED IN.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Learning Journals.

Primary 2 make an Impression – Part One

IMG_1403CRI_133075

This week in Primary 2 the children were looking at Vincent van Gogh’s famous painting, The Starry Night. Then they painted their palettes blue and gray (and green and yellow) and set about starting their own versions.  Next week they are going to use the shapes which they cut out in their maths lessons on 2D shape to add the buildings at the bottom of the picture. The original in the Museum of Modern Art in New York is probably worth $100m, but we think our versions are priceless.
