Everyone is making a real effort with healthy lunches and Mrs Parkinson is selling some very tasty things.
Can I remind you all that trip uniform should be worn on a Monday and Tuesday every week this term. Thanks 😊
Well done to Chiara who is pupil of the week in P4/5. This week it was awarded for being kind and Chiara has been super out in the playground with the new primary ones.
We have decided that P4/5 will be allowed to play football every morning interval while P1-3 will be able to play at lunchtime.
Can I please remind you that P4/5 will be playing the recorder in music tomorrow and every Friday so if your child has one please do send it in with them. Those who receive music tuition with Mrs Crosby or Mrs Sutherland will begin lessons next week. Thank you.
Another busy day in P4/5. Mr Jewell worked on addition and subtraction and the presentation of number work in the jotters is coming on. He also continued with character sketches and, using the Moodboard app on the iPad, everyone described the character they had become when dressing up! Next week when they are complete you will see a selection of them on our blog.
Our comprehension was based on bats and we looked at facts before answering questions. Please feel free to ask your child something they discovered today.
We began our topic on habitats this afternoon. We have a super new science scheme in the school which is forming the basis for our work. In groups we were thinking of plants and animals and how they are all living things. We discussed some of the key features of plants and animals and I am sure that your child would again be able to tell you something they have learned.
In art we are looking at the visual elements. We discussed line, pattern, tone, texture, shape and colour. We decided which elements we had already used in our self portraits and then experimented with line when we were creating different weathers.
Margaret the road safety officer came into P4/5 today to speak about how to keep safe on and near roads. Margaret was saying that the most important thing for people to do before crossing the road is to stop. 90% of accidents happen when people do not stop. Everyone was split into two groups to sort photos of places to cross the road. They had to discuss and decide which places were safe and which were dangerous.
Everyone is doing really well with their reading. We are taking time to prepare and discuss the reading for each night which is very beneficial and I appreciate your time and input at home.
It was our first session at the Inverclyde Sports Centre today. We enjoyed a warm up race through the foam pit before practising our forward roll technique. Everyone was split into two groups and the coaches helped with the rolls and handstands. The session concluded with some dance aerobics.
