Mrs McPherson has recorded a lovely assembly for us all this week.
Watch and enjoy!
A challenging day for everyone in P7 but they did very well. A nice party to end a difficult week.
I just wanted everyone to see the beautiful chameleons that we were working on for parent’s night. The children were experimenting with watercolour techniques like splattering, blending and using salt. We also found out all about chamelions and made fact files. Stay safe everyone. Mrs McLean
P6 were developing their French language skills whilst planning, designing and setting up a French cafe for pupils and staff to enjoy.
Linking with our World of Work Topic, the children experienced working as interior designers, advertisers, chefs ,front of house and waiting staff.
All staff and pupils complimented the pupils on their cafe experience. Tres bien!
A huge thank you also to the Co – Op and Sainsburys for their very generous donations of food and drink for the cafe. It would not have been possible without this.
We have been so busy the past few weeks taking part in STEM activities . We have created 3D models with pasta and marshmallows to reinforce the properties of various shapes. We were also lucky to have a visit from GM 4-7 who showed us how to make a variety of electrical circuits. Yesterday we participated in a golf taster session which everyone thoroughly enjoyed
P 1 and GM1 spent a very enjoyable morning at Nairn Free Church today, learning about Easter. The children listened to stories, sang songs, played a variety of games, watched short films, took part in a craft activity and enjoyed a lovely snack. Thank you to all involved at Nairn Free Church for inviting us to spend the morning with you.
It was a beautiful morning to be out for a walk and all the adults who accompanied the classes were really impressed with how well behaved and interested all the children were throughout the morning. Very well done P1 and GM1.
It has been a very busy few weeks in Primary 2. The children have been learning about multiplication and division, they have been calculating tricky sums using their understanding of groups. They have also loved our castles and fairytales topic. The children have enjoyed writing letters to Stardust, our dragon friend and learning about different fairytales. On Tuesday we made pancakes to celebrate Shrove Tuesday which tied in nicely to their learning about measurement. In skills time we have also started making slime! I hope that the children have had as much fun as I have as well as learning through all these activities.
P5 were working cooperatively with Gm 4-7 to build electric circuits, they learnt about series and parallel circuits and had lots of fun making things fly, beep, flash and move. Mr. Kelly’s class were very helpful and supportive. Tapadh leibh gu clas 4-7. Mrs Amos.
As part of our Rota Kids and World Book Day Activities , P6 are collecting books for the charity Books Abroad.
Books Abroad will then send the books to help school children based in places such as Sierra Leone and Ghana. This obviously helps them with their learning. Books such as dictionaries, encyclopaedias and atlases are gratefully received along with any fiction books. They also accept books suitable for adults.
P6 would very much appreciate if you could donate any books that you or your children are finished with. Please drop them into school by Thursday 5th March.
Thank you for helping us to support this great cause.
It was a busy, fun day in P1 yesterday as we decided to base our learning activities around the theme of pancakes. We listened to the very funny story of Mr Wolf’s Pancakes (we all loved the very surprising ending!), made and ate some yummy pancakes and then because we had cut some pancakes in half, we spent some time finding ways of representing our understanding of the word “half” by using a huge range of different materials. Some people drew pictures, some built models, some cut paper and some people showed how to find half of a number using their fingers. Some people then realised that some of the images they had created were also symmetrical. Very well done P1, your ability to extend your learning never fails to impress me!
