On Monday all P5 pupils attended the Basketball Festival at Dunbar Grammar School. Once we got there we were all split into groups and mixed with pupils from both West Barns and Innerwick Primary. We had 6 stations that we all visited. All stations had activities which involved testing our own fitness, shooting and mini-basketball games!! All teams worked very well with each other and had a great day!!
P5a and P5D enjoyed a variety of Easter activities today. The Easter egg hunt was quite tricky but you all worked well in your teams to complete the course. We also enjoyed an afternoon of basket making and creating chocolate nests.
Another huge thank you to Rachel in P5D for making her whole class scrumptious Easter cakes. It was very kind of you
Please visit the link below to view the trailers for the upcoming dvd featuring P5A and P5D on their trip to York.
We are pleased to welcome back P5A and P5D from their York
trip (P5C and P5B – the fun is still to come!)
Here is a quick reminder of homework tasks for the rest of
the term to help you get back into the swing.
Topic homework should be handed in on 9th and 16th
March with the maths homework due on 23rd March.
A huge well done to everyone who took the time to explore
the activities suggested in the Meaningful Maths leaflet. The
feedback we have received on the games and websites in the leaflet has been extremely positive and we are very pleased to have been able to hand out so many certificates and awards throughout the fortnight.
Some fantastic photos capturing our Chinese New Year celebrations
Happy New Year everyone!! Welcome back! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday filled with lots of fun
In primary 5a, we have been talking about New Year’s resolutions!! We have decided to each make 3 resolutions that hopefully we can keep for the whole of 2012!! Fingers crossed! Some found it quite tricky to think of 3 resoltuions but managed it in the end!! Miss Currie is confident that everyone should be able to stick to at least one resolution but only time will tell
Today at lunch everyone sat down as a class with their teacher to enjoy their Christmas lunch! Miss Currie and most of 5a chose the traditional festive option and had turkey and all the trimmings! Everyone seemed to be in the festive spirit and lunch went down a treat…..it was yummy!!!!!
Yesterday, primary 5a took a walk up to John Muir’s birth place in Dunbar High Street. We all had a fantastic morning! We all began by talking about what we already knew about John Muir which helped us see what we didn’t know. Some pupils were then given questions that they had to find the answers to! We then got the chance to explore all three levels which told us information about a specific part of his life!
Everyone, including Miss Currie found out a new fact, if not more, about John Muir which we all shared with each other at the end by putting onto a timeline. We all had a great day and some of us are already planning our next visit
Primary 5 have enjoyed several trips across to John Muir Campus to visit our buddies in Primary 2!! We now feel as though we are getting to know our buddies much better than we did at the start of term! Last week we looked at the Rights and Responsibilities of a child and designed a poster with our buddy to show our learning. We had a great afternoon and we are looking forward to our visit from Primary 2 next week
P5a have been enjoying learning about how the Scottish Wars of Independence began!! There have been lots of questions asked by everyone! Last week we were looking at the arguments for and against Alexander III’s grandaughter becoming Queen of Scots after he died.
As a class, we looked at both the arguments for and against her becoming Queen before deciding in groups on the strongest argument. We then held our very own debate within the classroom with both sides giving great arguments and backing up each claim brilliantly! It was tense at times but everyone participated and thoroughly enjoyed the lesson! Well done 5a
