Primary 3/4 News

Handwriting superstars 🌟

So proud of our absolute superstars this morning, working so hard on their joined handwriting. Everyone was concentrating so hard and should be so proud of themselves as they all produced such beautiful work. 😊😍

Well done everyone! 💜

Headteacher Award

Well done to Hughie for his act of kindness during cross country. He selflessly stopped mid-run to help another pupil in need. We are very proud of you Hughie.

Cross Country

Our Class were cross country super stars, we are very proud of everyone’s efforts despite the weather. Well done to our medal winners.

DYW

We were lucky enough to have some visitors for DYW this week. Fiona came to P3/4/5 to discuss her job as a scrub nurse. She talked about the importance of hand washing and keeping things sterile as well as sharing some pictures of the pre-op room and surgery instruments. She brought in some equipment for us to look at too.

Yoga

Our class enjoyed today’s yoga session with Denise.

We felt very relaxed throughout and everyone gave even the tricky moves a good attempt.

Well done P3/4/5

In a world where you can be anything…..

P3/4/5 spent some time talking about the importance of being kind. We shared some of the kind and unkind words we have heard in and out of school. The class were very honest and said at some stage they have used unkind words towards others.

We used crumpled bits of paper to highlight that sometimes even after we have apologised unfortunately the damage is already done and can’t be reversed.

As part of the lesson we set up an experiment using cooked rice in jars to hopefully show the kids the effect that negative behaviour towards others can have.

At Beauly Primary we encourage the children to be the best they can be and to support each other throughout their learning journeys.

So remember in a world where you can be anything… always be kind. 💕

Another special visitor 😊

Today we were lucky enough to have another visitor to our class. Brogan’s mum, came to tell us about her job as a Home Carer. We were able to try on the gloves she uses, see the slippy sheet used to help people move more easily in bed, as well as look at some other things she uses regularly in her job. Then we asked lots of good questions to help us learn even more about the job of a home carer.

A HUGE thank you to Kelsey for taking the time to come and talk to us. 😀

HWB and DYW week

What a busy start to the week! We started off by working in pairs to find out about the journey chocolate goes through before it gets to the shops. Most of us didn’t know it begins life as a bean in a pod on a cacao tree!

After playtime we were keeping fit and healthy by running around playing football with Ryan from Ross County. Ryan also had a chat with us about different ways of keeping healthy, both mentally and physically.

Then in the afternoon, we had some really interesting visitors. First, Sophie’s dad, Gavin came to tell us about his job as a firefighter. We learnt some very important fire safety rules, and found out about the many aspects of his job. We got to ask lots of super questions and even heard some funny stories about animals being rescued!

Finally we had a visit from Harvey’s mum, Catherine who came to tell us about her job as a healthcare assistant. She had her super assistant, Harvey, helping her to show us how to take blood pressure and teaching us all about what the numbers mean.

A HUGE thank you to both of our visitors who taught us so much today! 😊 It really makes a difference to hear about your jobs first hand.
