Here are some of our hardworking and successful learners that have managed to earn a Star of the Week certificate last week!

Well done everyone!

Primary 6 have been designing some fantastic posters in groups to present to our fellow classmates this week. We discussed what a successful poster would look like and decided our posters should:

  1. Be eye-catching
  2. Tell our reader information
  3. Have a purpose or point

The purpose of our posters was to share information about different oceans, such as, the Pacific, Atlantic or Arctic ocean. Every group worked hard and produced some brilliant posters which shared lots of facts and information. As you can see from the pictures, our posters were very eye-catching! We were an excellent audience and everyone managed to stand up and speak about their poster. Miss Young was very impressed! Unfortunately we did not manage to get a photo of every group, but here are some pictures from our group presentations today.


P1 have been busy counting whilst outside.  They searched for some objects to match the number they had.  There was lots of talking about numbers happening!

Here are some photos from P6/7M today. We were finishing off looking at the start of WW1 by role playing different countries and creating alliances. This helped us see some of the reasons countries ended up involved in the war after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria.

Tha a’ chiad seachdainean aig GM1 air a bhith gu mhath gnìomhail agus an t-seachdain sa chaidh rinn iad tòrr obair air na àireamhan aca. Cuideachd, bha ùine aca na iPads a’ cleachdadh airson geamanan cunntais a’ cluich. Abair spòrs!

GM1 have had a very busy few weeks! Last week we did lots of work on our numbers and also had some time to play counting games on the iPads! Great work!

Bha GM 2&3 trang ag obair air na suimean uiread aca! Chleachd sinn diofar rudan airson cuideachach a thoirt dhuinn. Bha e uabhasach sporsail agus thuirt cuid gun robh “nas fhasa na bha iad a smaointinn”. Sgoinneil!

GM 2&3 have been busy working on their multiplication sums. We used different resources to help us and some also said that it was “much easier than they thought”. Great news!

These are some photos from our shoe box show and tell challenge. The children were asked to decorate a shoe box and fill it with 6 objects that mean a lot to them, toys, photos etc.

We are off to a great start in primary 6/7M this session. Here are some of the things we’ve been getting up to. (Sorry no pictures due to technical difficulties – will put some up next week)

We have been looking at data handling in maths, conducting our own surveys and producing graphs of what we found. We have also been looking at reading information from the charts and what it all means.

In ICT we have been using spreadsheets to record our data and then make charts from them. We have also been looking at using computers to make simulations and why this is important.

Our IDL topic this year is WW1 and we looked at some of the factors leading up to it, with a few people taking on the roles of different countries!

Here are some quotes about this week;

“Writing was lots of fun when I can design my own character” – Will

“In PE I liked being on the benches running and having to jump over things. We had to work as a team and show leadership.” – Ella

“It was fun learning about making bar charts on the chromebooks.” – Lennon

“I liked playing Colin’s coffee to learn about simulations in ICT” – Lucia


Have a good weekend!
