A big thank you to all the parents and carers who made cakes for our red nose day cakes stalls, they raised a fantastic amount of money! Thank you as well for all your support with the Readathon and The Big Pedal. It has been a busy term and all your support is truly appreciated!
Well done everyone for all the cake making and eating this week! You all looked great today in your red and good luck with any fundraising that you might be getting up to over the weekend!
Happy New Year everybody!
This term P4B are studying the life of Mary Queen of Scots. We have already been to the National Museum of Scotland and met Mary Stewart herself (well a brilliant impersonation anyway). We learned how to bow and courtsey like ladies and gentlemen. We found out all sorts of exciting things about Mary and her life and even learned the difference between gothic and renaissance carving.
We are currently creating comics that tell the story of Mary’s life in France and her return to Scotland so keep your eyes peeled for them appearing up here when they are done.
Also this term we have our Scots assembly coming up on Friday and 4B are all working hard to learn their verse of Boggin Beasties by Gregor Steele for our contribution!
Happy Christmas P4! I hope you are all having a fantastic break, see you in the New Year! Miss Cook
I hope you are all keeping warm in this beautiful, if slightly chaotic, weather! I thought, since I have just found out that you are not going to be in school for the rest of the week, that I would remind you that there are maths games up (for those of you who are missing it) on the maths page. I will be adding more in the morning .
Finally don’t forget that you have your animal research projects so if you need a break from sledging you could research your groups’s animal. Don’t forget the pupil forum is there if you need to talk to your group (or me).
I am thinking toastie sledging thoughts for you all and I will hopefully see you next week!
Primary 4 have been learning all about India’s different environments this week. We have been looking at the ‘cool north’ and have been tasting some of its most popular product, chai.
We have even been lucky enough to find out about a school in the region from Pauline McInnes. So many many thanks to her for coming in and sharing her experiences of living and working in India. We will be having a bake sale in a couple of weeks to try to raise money for the school to pay for teachers. More information will follow.
