This week when I read over our imaginative writing I could not pick a star writer because they were all so fantastic! So I asked Mrs Williams for some help. She chose Rhys and Lewis! Well done boys! You both produced great stories Mrs Williams gave them both 2 stars and a wish for their writing.
On Friday we attended the P6/7′s film premier of ‘Elph’ at the Brunton Theatre. We were so proud of the EXCELLENT job the boys and girls in P6/7 made of their film. We especially liked the part when Mrs Williams got a cream pie in her face and when James was chasing people with a brush We were also delighted to see so many of our parents, carers and friends who had come along to enjoy the film with us.
Last week we took part in a muscial workshop called ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’. We had lots of fun making fun beats out of our names and much much more…..
Today on newsround we saw a school that thought gardening was a good skill to learn. Sometimes in Summer we go out and look after the garden. This year we are having a whole week dedicated to looking after our garden.
We would like to …..
- Plant some new flowers, plants or vegetables. Maybe potatoes or carrots.
- Check the bug hotel is still ok and find more logs to put in it.
- Weed the garden.
- Put some grass seed on brown patches of grass.
We are really looking forward to getting muddy and learning about how to take care of our garden.
We are so glad the weather is getting better …. even if it still is pretty cold! We like it because we can take our learning ourside! Today we spent out mental maths time counting different things in our playground
Last week on our trip to the school library we saw this cool looking book called ‘Dino Egg’ by Charlie James. It is a novel with no pictures. We decided to ask Mrs Paterson to read it to us. So far a little creature (which we thing is a dinosaur) has hatched out of Ned’s breakfast egg. Ned and Bill have kept the creature a secret from their mum. We are very excited to find out what kind of mischief the dino will get up to…….
This morning Clyde the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth games mascot came to tell us all about the games. He was really cool. He looked like a thistle. A thistle is a Scottish flower. He demonstrated some of the sports that will be involved in the games and he even raced Adam! Clyde showed us a really cool video on youtube about how he came to be the mascot for the games. You can watch it too by clicking here.
Tickets for the games go on sale next month

This afternoon we were so lucky! We had a visit fron Benny and Jack from Generation Science. Benny didn’t know much about the sun and the earth so we were helping Jack to teach him all about day and night! We had so much fun singing songs and helping with the props! What a great end to our day and night topic!
