P2HM’s Visit to Dynamic Earth

P2HM loved their trip to Dynamic Earth today. We found out all sorts of things about the weather. Take a look at some of our learning.IMG_1142

We found out that hot air rises. This is why we get wind and rain.

IMG_1146IMG_1150We used tornado bottles to find out what a real tornado looks like. We saw that the bottom of a tornado is much faster than the top.

We found out that lightening is electric.

P7 Personal Project 2018

Yay, it’s here! volcano-clip-art-121

Today P7 were given their project information sheets.  We have stressed that this does NOT mean they have to start working during the holidays! It’s simply to give them plenty of thinking time before beginning this task after the February week.

Linked to our Japan theme, the Natural Disasters project should be a final showcase of their functional  reading and writing skills, and every pupil is expected to put effort in to this.

Here is a copy of the paperwork should yours go missing…

P6 Assembly Extravaganza!

The P6 Egyptian Assembly EXTRAVAGANZA! 

Performing on Thursday 21st September

The papyrus is rustling and the pyramids are getting built, preparation for the Primary 6 assembly has officially begun!

Pupils have been super busy learning about all different aspects of Ancient Egyptian life, including Egyptian clothing.  We would like each pupil to apply what they have learned and be dressed in an Ancient Egyptian style outfit for the assembly itself. Bed sheets and pillow cases will come in handy, as every pupil has already made beautiful jewellery to accessorize with!

Please bring your Egyptian outfit into school on Tuesday 18th September, for our dress rehearsal.

We can’t wait to see you all looking fabulous!

We walked on the hard shoulder. The hard shoulder is for cars that have broken down. Oops did you spot that we were walking the wrong way.

 

Here are a few more….

P6 Europe Holiday Pitches

Dear Parents/carers,

As part of our learning all about Europe and applying our skills in using persuasive language, both Primary 6 classes are currently working really hard to create a presentation all about a European city.

On Thursday 30th March, we would like to invite you to our holiday sales pitches, where you will get the chance to listen to each group’s sales pitch. You may also get the opportunity to vote for your favourites!

The pitches will be taking place in both classrooms in the upper stages from 1:30pm – 3:15pm. Please free feel to drop in at some point during these times.

Thank you for your continued support.

Emily Thomas and Elizabeth Leithead
