P1H Enjoyed a trip into the woods to further explore thier story line tale of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. They made a shelter which became the Bears house, they took the 3 Bears on a walk and found lots of intersting things to look at. When we came back to the shelter Goldilocks had arrived and eaten all the porrige. good job we had plenty of hot chocolate and biscuits to go around.
On Wednesday 26th January, 7 P4s went to Saltoun to take part in a Fantastic Mr Fox party with P4s from other schools across the cluster. The P4’s worked in groups alongside children from other schools and completed two tasks before enjoying a Fantastic Mr Fox feast. The first task involved the children answering questions on Fantastic Mr Fox before discussing their own favourite books. In the second task, the groups found out some facts about foxes before playing Pin the Tail on the Fox. All the children spent time working, eating and playing with children from other schools and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
I opened the cupboard late at night
And saw your keys all shiny and bright.
So pleasing is this wonderful sight!
The task was good, you fulfilled it right.
You restored my keys and started to fight
The terrible spell that caused my plight.
And now you’ll see below the light
A golden, magic key hangs tight!
Take time to think of whom it might
Belong to, and on paper write.
And then to further cause delight
Build a castle that will excite!
The Keeper of the Keys
A lot of activity has been happening in P4T as the children took up the challenge from The Keeper of the Keys to make and replace the lost keys. The next morning a cupboard had appeared in our classroom and inside we found another scroll and poem! Our next task was to write a label for each key to say what it opens, and place our keys inside the cupboard. What will the Keeper of Keys leave next?
A flash, a bang, a sizzle, a crack!
Everything‘s bright, then suddenly black.
No time to think, it happened so fast.
The castles are gone! A spell was cast.
I turned around and looked to see
A label was left- but where was the key?
I instantly knew that something was wrong!
I need your help. This spell is too strong.
Without our castles, it’s all so tragic!
Without the key there is no magic!
Only young minds like yours will do,
Work together to think it through.
Take the challenge, it’s up to you.
Unlock the spell- the key’s the clue!
The Keeper of the Keys
P1I Enjoyed a lovely trip into the woods as part of our whole school story line. They enjoyed a retelling of the story around the woods followed by a hot drink and a gingerbread man in a cosy shelter. They were very surprised to find a giant gingerbread man had sneaked onto the minibus to join them on their trip,
