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!
After the class made a first attempt at using similes last week, we used these yesterday to do some descriptive writing about Pokemon ( at the request of the class!). The results were amazing and we even wrote them in our very own pokeball!
In P2A yesterday we had a change from jotters and worksheets and had fun making our new compound words in ‘messy stuff’ instead. Children particularly liked writing them in wax and then revealing the word like spies!!
P2A went visiting last week when we were invited to P4 to listen to some stories about ‘The Treasure Chest’. It was an opportunity for us to see the new building and we loved your stories P4 so a big thank you from all of us in P2A!
The Scottish Book Trust have been really impressed with our work at Craigour Park so much so that they asked us to contribute something to their website. Why not take a look and see what we’ve been upto?
