Great Guided Tours :-)

P3/4/5 are very excited to take you on a guided walk of the Craigmonie woodland or to the Cover. All pupils have worked very hard to create interesting and detailed maps and will share all their learning about trees, plants and wildlife of the area. Look out for the maps in school bags today! They can keep their maps at home but if the Key Assessment sheet could please come back to school. Don’t worry if you don’t have time for the walk before Thursday as your child can take you on the walk during the holidays and the sheet can be returned in August. We would love you to email Miss MacDonald with photos of you on your walks! Have fun!

P.S A few pupils are still finishing their maps so will take them home on Monday.

Here’s a selection of the fantastic guides! P3/4 also shared their learning for the Woodland Trust platinum award at assembly!

Jam-packed June :-)

June is certainly jam-packed full of activities and learning experiences! P3/4/5 have had a busy time!

We were delighted that you were able to join us for a fun filled, sunny Sports Day! P3/4/5 showed fantastic sportsmanship throughout the day!

We have all been working hard towards our Woodland Trust Platinum Award and our John Muir Award. We will be sharing our learning with you all and started work on our guided trails. We are really looking forward to sharing these with you this week!

We have been learning and revising our times tables. We have looked at word problems, using arrays, written multiplication and practising our quick times tables answers.

We had a go at a’ Live Code-along’ with lots of other schools around the world! We gave it a good go although it was a bit quick! We are going to use the Microbits next week to have another try!

Busy, busy week for P3/4!

This week flew by! P3/4 had a busy week starting their work on our Woodland Trust Platinum Award. Pupils completed independent research on woodland animals including facts about their appearance, homes, what they eat. They then created beautiful woodland art using natural materials. We will focus on leaves and trees and plants on our woodland walk on Monday..

We have all been working hard on written subtraction with 2, 3 or 4 digit numbers and will keep practising this next week. We have also been learning our ‘wh’ question words for spelling what, where, when, why, which and who or other tricky common words.
