Primary 3 Scots Poems!

The children have heard and discussed 3 wonderful  poems in Scots – Nessie by J.K. Annand, Doctor by J.K. Annand and The Sair Finger by Walter Wingate. They have chosen one of these poems to learn for homework in the week ahead.  We hope to have some lovely recitals in class next Monday … please find the links below!

We have also been learning the song ‘Thae Banes, Thae Banes’ which we are looking forward to performing during our Burns assembly … happy learning!

Primary 2 are able to add!

Today  Primary 2 were using different ‘adding strategies’ to help solve number problems.  We have been using our stories of ten, as well as doubles and near-doubles, to help us to add two numbers together.  We really enjoy singing songs to help us learn our number bonds.  Here are the links to a few of the songs we have been singing (and rapping to) in class.

What makes ten?

Doubles 1-5   Doubles 6-10

Ask us about the games we’ve been playing that help to reinforce our skills in addition.

We’re back!

Happy New Year to you all!

Everyone seems to be happy to be back this week. I’m happy the snow is staying away so far.

We’ve started the term by looking at some Julia Donaldson books in Scots. We listened to The Gruffalo in Scots on YouTube:Find it here

In Maths we’re adding within 100 and then 1000 and found this nice activity on the Top Marks website which has lots of options: Click here to have a look

Scottish poems will be sent home for homework on Monday 16th January so keep an eye out in bags.
