At our school open day parents and carers were given the opportunity to visit the different countries in each classroom. Our class focus was the Caribbean, looking especially at Trinidad and Tobago. Visitors got a guided tour around the room, a homemade refreshing smoothie and a change to put their “face in the hole!”. See if you can find yourself or recognise anyone in our photos!
Sorry we have been so quiet the past couple of months! We have been very very busy as you will see from our blog. Make sure to scroll through to see everything we have done.
Primary 4 enjoyed an Assembly and class Jammin session with Andy. We have put some photos on for you to see! Here are some comments from our class:
We warmed up-Calum
We did some Bollywood dancing-Hannah
We were doing some Indian dancing-Liam
P4W have had a very busy two weeks looking at Fairtrade. We started by having a look at where different products came from. Everyone was very surprised when looking at an atlas to see just how far our products have to travel.
This followed on by looking at the Banana Journey. The class were given no assistance and in their teams they had to re-create the order of the banana journey. Most groups found this quite easy, however they found identifying what stage of the process was a lot harder.
We even managed to include Fairtrade into our spelling activities!
One of our main activities, however, involved writing a very important letter. After studying a video about Fairtrade footballs the class decided to write a letter to a few Scottish football teams to try and persuade them to use Fairtrade footballs. We are still waiting for a reply but we have our fingers crossed!
Finally we finished off our fortnight by having a “Fairtrade Fashion show”. The children applied for individual jobs to be involved with the show, from models to designers, from presenters to security. In teams they each created an outfit for their model made completely of recyclable material. Once we were ready for the main event, we invited the primary 2s and 1s to come along and see the show. Watch the blog closely for a video update!
After an enjoyable Christmas break, Primary 4W have made a fantastic start to the new year. Watch closely as we update our blog with all our latest activities. We would love to hear from you so please feel free to leave a comment.
I would just like to say a very big thank you for all my wonderful Christmas presents. It was very thoughtful and much appreciated. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year and I am looking forward to seeing you tomorrow to start P4 in 2012!
Love Miss Flanagan
