P.E will take place indoors on a Tuesday and Wednesday this term. Your child will need their P.E kit including a pair of clean indoor shoes or trainers suitable for P.E on these days. Many pupils have these in school already.
The Gardening Skills group enjoyed harvesting our pumpkins today! We are so proud of our giant and tiny pumpkins! They are being stored safely until after the holidays!
Thanks very much to Loch Ness Pumpkins for donating the seeds!
Well done P3/4/5 for a very hard working term! Have a lovely holiday and enjoy the beautiful autumn colours!
Thank you for returning the pupil profiles. We have just a couple due back tomorrow please.
Mrs Laird loved hearing the songs we had made up for our Feis rhythms. We also enjoyed hearing lots of our pupils playing their instruments! Sorry, no photos, we were too busy enjoying the performances!!
We have been learning about place value this term. We have looked at 3, 4 and 5 digit numbers. We enjoyed playing the add 1, 10 and 100 game. Have a go at home!
We played ‘Paddle’ this week and talked about how we work out calculations. How would you work this out?
We also looked at missing number calculations. We talked about the link between addition and subtraction.
P3/4/5 have been working hard on writing their own songs as a follow up from their Feis lessons. If your child plays an instrument they can take it in tomorrow (Thursday) and play them as an accompaniment to their singing. I will set up the school keyboard for any piano players 🙂
P3/4/5 worked with Mrs Laird today to firstly consider our right to education and the aims of education. We discussed all that we should learn in school. Then we thought about all that had changed over the last few years in school, who had made the decisions for those changes and if they had been in the best interests of the child and why. There was some very good discussion.
I hope you enjoy having a look at your child’s profile and chatting through these. In the back of the red profile there are achievement leaves for out of school. Please feel free to fill one or more in with achievements over the summer holidays or over the last couple of months. We have talked over this in class so pupil’s know examples…e.g… I can tie my shoe laces, I baked a cake, I can tidy my room on my own, I am in the next swimming group, I got my next grade in karate, I learned how to draw a…, I can make a sandwich, I can do a new jump on my skateboard…
Please return both profiles by Thursday 7th October. Thank you.
(If your child does not have a red folder in their bag can you please have a look for it at home)
What do you think of these amazing cars? They are all fabulous! We enjoyed testing them in Science. Do you know what friction is? Ask your child to tell you!
