Anyone working in the Lower Wing this afternoon needn’t worry! Miss Read has not decided to open a barnyard in her classroom – today we were learning about wool!

P1/2 linked their science topic with our Word Boost book: Katie Morag and the Two Grandmothers. After learning about where wool comes from and talking about things we can make from wool, p1/2 decided to make their very own sheep masks!

Don’t worry parents/guardians – this activity took place AFTER our photographs……it turned out to be quite a messy lesson!

I Wanna Rock and Roll All Night…

And Party Every Day!

P1A have had an excellent week! We’ve loved our mini topic of Rock Band. The children have dressed up, written stories, played games, made pictures and sang along with some fantastic rock songs from Lego Batman to Queen. Rookie Rockstars was great fun and the children loved taking it back into the classroom and into other activities. Each child was a musician for the week and each table became a band! Our own tour manager/star of the week Yasmin also had a role helping the class stay organised and get to each ‘gig’ on time. What a week! Miss Read is happy to say we’re all Rock Stars in the making – check out our ‘rock’ faces!

What absolute Troopers! Miss Read is so proud!

P7A Resilience Superheroes

This week in Primary 7 we have been designing our very own resilience superheroes to promote resilience across the school. The children thought about resilience means to them and came up with a huge word bank to help describe to others what a resilience superhero would demonstrate. We then uploaded our photos to comic caption and created a comic style picture with our ideas. Check out some of our work here!

A Hard Day’s Night

P1A are thoroughly enjoying their new topic Day and Night. Today we made Night pictures that showed a street in the dark. We had a great discussion of what we can see out our windows at night.

We combined our learning from last block and used 2D shapes when making our pictures. We needed rectangles, squares, a circle and stars to make our beautiful artwork. Excellent work everyone!

Nursery Burns Supper 2017

Thank You to everyone who came along to our nursery Burns supper yesterday. We had a fantastic turn out, and it was lovely to see everyone getting involved and joining in the Scottish celebrations.

We have have been very interested in finding out about Robert Burns, and have looked at some of his poems and songs. We were so inspired by all of his hard work that we all became authors and created our own book! Well done everyone!
