We hope that you had a lovely Easter break and that you are all feeling refreshed and ready for the new term. Apologies for the lack of website over the last month but Mrs Thomas has been waiting to regain access! Hopefully this will work today:)
Firstly a big thank you to Ewan and his family for giving Goldie and Sunshine their Easter break, much appreciated. Also a big thank you to Mrs Lodge and Mrs McClung for helping out with our trip to Knox Academy for the culmination of our Carnival of the Animals project. Lastly and by no means least a big thank you to Craig and his dad for building the fantastic bird table for our grounds. If you haven’t seen it yet we hope to get it up in the grounds as soon as the wood has been treated.
As you will see from the photo’s below we have been very busy over the last few months. We had great fun with Miss Ewing raising money for comic relief, we raised £50! We also enjoyed an Indian feast with Mrs Kemp as part of our learning about Sikhism. With Mrs Thomas we found out about the dinosaurs and how fossils are made and of course the Primary 2′s took part in the Carnival of the Animals project with Ms Trail.
Term 4 – What we will be doing?
Topic: We will be looking at Mini-beasts and all things creepy crawly with Mrs Thomas. With Mrs Kemp we will be completing a Green Project, more details to follow.
Numeracy and Maths: We will be learning about numbers to 1000 in numeracy and we will be doing a lot of information handling with Mrs Thomas, which links perfectly with our topic.
Literacy: We will endeavour to make as many links as possible with our topic work to ensure that learning is purposful, but we will be looking inparticualr at genre, report and personal account writing.You should receive a quick note home with regard to the reading groups, we have had a reshuffle during the holidays and renamed all our groups, but if you have any queries or concerns please get in touch.
RME: We will be finding out about Buddhism.
Health and Wellbeing: We will be looking at our changing bodies, life cycles and the needs of a new baby. We will also be playing some team building games.
ICT: This will link to both our whole class reading and to mini-beasts looking at a range of data handling and display techniques as well as graphics.
Art: This will be linked to our mini-beasts project and we will look at Landscape Art and the famous artist Monet.
PE: This will be on a Monday(Mrs Kemp) and Thursday (Ms Jones). Please ensure that PE kits are in on these days to avoid missing out.
Gym Shoes: We had a number of incidents last term of unsafe gym shoes, please take time to check that shoes fit properly and that the soles and fastenings are intact. We don’t want any accidents spoiling our fun this term.
Outside Classroom: We hope to spend lots of time in the wildlife garden this term so please make sure you bring a jumper (with your name on it) so you don’t get chilly sitting in the garden, which can happen even on the warmest of days.
Class Rep: As you will be aware by now Mrs Vernon is our class rep this year. If you have any suggestions, particular talents you can share or are available to get involved in our classroom learning and mini-beast hunting please let either, myself, Mrs Kemp or Mrs Vernon know.
Well that’s it folks! Keep check the site for updates which I hope will be more regular now that I have access.
