Our topic this term has been natural disasters and adverse weather. The homework for the next few weeks is to complete a project. You will have to do a poster, booklet or a model. You will have to present your project in class on Monday 27th or Tuesday 28th June. You are able to work with a partner but not in trios, if you decide to work with a partner, you will have to do a model along with a booklet or poster.
Here are some useful website you may wish to use:
I have attached some photos of examples. You can be as creative as you want!
As part of Science week, we have been learning about ‘Earth and Beyond’. Today we have been learning about how our Earth spins and orbits the sun to give us night and day and our seasons. We have been practicing to make sundials.
Sorry for the moan but could you please make sure that your child has a pair of shorts and a T-shirt for PE. There were 9 children out of a class of 29 without the proper gym kits this week! The kit can stay in school for the term so that when PE has changed days, the kit is still there.
Also could you please make sure that your child has appropriate indoor shoes for running and jumping in the gym hall. Slippers and slip on pumps are not working and shoes are falling off feet and children are falling over trying to do activities. Good old close fitting black gym shoes or trainers that can be worn indoors are great and will avoid any unnecessary accidents.
At the end of last term, Primary Three were very busy using their ICT research skills and found out what an Ancient Egyptian Shaduf was. They then used this knowledge and worked together in pairs to design and build their very own Shaduf using limited resources and lots of imagination. There was a prize for the winning pair that had planned and build the most realistic structure that hit all of their learning targets and success criteria.
P3 worked with Inverness Caledonian Thistle during PE to improve on ball skills and listening skills.
We had great fun!
P4/5 have been designing Pictish Round Houses. They have been working in trios to problem solve.
We are looking for completed shoeboxes for our appeal, if you are unable to fill a box then you can still take part and support the appeal by bringing in a few items, wrapping paper or spare shoeboxes. Any items received will be made up into complete boxes. Your child recently took home a leaflet with information about what can be included in the box. We are looking for things like hats and gloves, scarfs, toy cars or dolls, sweets (no chocolate), toothbrushes, toothpaste, face cloths and soap. Thanks in advance and we will keep you updated with our appeal.
