Our Assembly on Friday was to celebrate the achievements of P2/3, P5 and P6 pupils. There were lots of examples of confident individuals and successful learners and all of the children showed they are effective contributors by singing with enthusiasm to You are a Star.
The photographs on the slideshow were taken by the P6 pupils. Also Some of the photos were copied from the memory card in the camera to the Power Point for our assembly by P6 pupils. Thank you P6 for being effective contributors and thank you also to all the pupils that came to our class to have their picture taken; you behaved like responsible citizens.
Celebrating Success P2/3 P5 & P6 on PhotoPeach
We have ended our topic with a celebration and learned new skills. Thank you so much to the parent helpers and Mrs Swanston for making this a delicious event. We had a tasting table, a cutting skills table, a filling station (where we put our ingredients in a wrap with some sauce if we wanted) a fresh fruit smoothie table and an ICT area to learn more about healthy eating.
Today some of the children from P1/2 came to spend time in the P7 classroom. We decided to some work together and started by reading a book called ‘The Fish Who Could Wish’. The P7 children taught P1/2 about the skill of prediction, they guessed what would happen next in the story and drew their ideas on big posters! The children were very happy to find out that some of their predictions were correct when they read on! Then, the children worked with their P7 buddies to write their own version of the story. They imagined themselves as fish who were able to wish and we had all sorts of ideas from wishing for £100 to wishing for lots of ice cream! Everyone cooperated really well today – Well Done!
Here they are working hard:
P6 had four sessions of learning to play tag rugby. We then went to Pinkie for the Rugby Festival and it was a very full two hours of running around doing different things. Take a look at our picture and please leave some comments.
P7 visited St David’s last Wednesday to take part in a Maths Challenge event. All of the other feeder schools were at the event and so the children were reunited (how emotional!) with their friends from Camp. They were put into teams before they arrived and worked in these teams to create posters and solve Maths problems. They did extremely well! One of our groups came 2nd in the poster competition and another came 3rd in the overall Maths challenge! Well done everyone – you did yourselves proud. Canon MacMullan also came to say Mass in the school library and pupils from all of the different schools took part by saying bidding prayers, readings and doing the offertory. It was a lovely atmosphere, enjoyed by all.
Here they are, the budding Mathematicians!
A huge thank you to all of the teachers involved in organising such a worthwhile event!
On Thursday 16th May we will be making our own pitta pockets with healthy fillings. To help us prepare for the day we are going to ask our parents to watch the video link showing cutting skills. The idea is that we can then try out these techniques at home with an adult. To find the link scroll down to the Health and Well Being Web Links and click on Food a Fact of Life. When you have had a look and tried using the food cutting skills, leave a comment on this post to let us know how everyone is doing.
We have been working hard learning about the Human Body and we’d like to share some pictures. Evan’s aunt is a physiotherapist and she kindly offered to come and teach us more about the human body. We hope you enjoy the slideshow. There will be some funky music that we hope you enjoy as well.
Tomorrow – P7 pupils who will be attending St David’s High School after the Summer will be going to visit the school as part of a Maths and RE cluster event.
Today the children were split in to teams to complete their first task – creating posters about Shape!
Here they are in action!
All P7s attending this event tomorrow must bring a packed lunch!
