Today P1/2 had a visit from Holly Tomas. She taught the children a song about keeping safe when out and about playing. They enjoyed singing and learning how to be seen usig high visability clothing when out at dusk and dawn.
P1/2 have been developing their knowledge of shape again this week. After being captivated by 2D shapes they went on to explore and investigate 3D shapes. They have been learning to say, identify and and write about lots of shapes. They now know sphere, cube, cylinder, cone, cuboid, triangular prism and square based pyramid. They have enjoyed this experience!!!
Calling all parent! Your job is to help your child identify some of the shapes listed above. This can be in the home and when you are out and about. Thanks for your continued support.
A final reminder and invitation to all that our Closing Assembly will take place in the school hall at 2pm today. After which we will make the arch to let the P7s pass through and out to the next stage in their school lives! Please come along if you can- the Primary 7s are running the show and I am sure we will all be impressed with their efforts.
Forth emerged victorious after a closely contested Sports Day that saw several fantastic individual and team performances. Well done to the individual race winners, all the members of Forth House and to all the pupils who took part and tried their best.
After a rousing performance of their team songs, the teams took to the field for the Buddy Race. This was followed by the flat race, egg and spoon, skipping and sack races throughout the school. The final event was the marathon after which everyone was ready for lunch!
Many thanks to all who attended and showed their support for Sports Day, and an even bigger thanks to those who helped out and made it possible!
Today we did ACE hour. There were lots of different activities to choose from. There was parachute games and rounder’s with Miss Smith, art with Mrs Kuczok, Hamma-beads with Mrs Dixon, cold baking with Mrs Coventry, hot baking with Miss Sweeney, fun French with Miss Murray, football with Mrs Binning and DVD and popcorn with Miss Chapman.
“In the football, most of the P1/2/3/4s were playing and they played against the older people and they won,” says Alistair. Sarah said, “Baking was really good. We made scones”. “The baking was yummy”, said Amy.“At the start we played ‘giant fun big ball’ rounder’s. The teams were ‘King of the Lions’ and ‘The Cheetahs’. Nathan kept on getting home runs, but the ‘King of the Lions’ lost. Then we all played against Miss Smith and she lost. At the start of the parachute games we played Cat and Mouse, where you have to pick a cat and mouse, and the mouse goes under the parachute and the cat tries to catch the mouse on top of the parachute. Then we did Mushrooms, where we all sit under the parachute and sit on the end of the parachute. One person goes outside and tries to get in and the people inside try to stop it. Next we Fruit Salad, where the teacher shouts a fact and if it’s true about you, you run under the parachute and swap a place with someone. Then we played Sharks. In Sharks everyone lies down and picks a life guard and shark. The shark goes under the parachute and everyone pulls the parachute over their legs. Then the shark tries to pull the people under the parachute and the life guard tries to pull them out. If they get pulled in they become a shark. The game ends when all the people are pulled under except the life guard,” said Andrew. Duncan said “The movie was good, because I like Japanese stuff, (the movie was Japanese)”.
On Monday the 7th June 2010 our whole school had an assembly about respect and how we can show respect. We can show respect by looking at the person who is speaking, making sure you are not fiddling with anything and sit still. You can sit up straight and make sure you are not talking to the people next to you. In our assembly we had stars of the week handed out to the people who had been given them by their teachers. We were given a running total on the house points, FORTH are in the lead, with BIEL in second and TYNE in last. Everyone who was green all week got congratulated at being green all week.
