Primary 3/4 News

SSPCA

P3/4/5 were visited by Vince from the SSPCA today. He shared his knowledge of wild animals and answered some very interesting questions from our children. The class were given the opportunity to build an owl robot and their computational thinking skills were put to the test as they tried to programme their owls to move and make the correct animal sound. 🦉📱

Scootathon

Last week we had a visit from Iain who kindly took along his scooters for us to try out on a track he made in our school playground. He discussed the importance of staying safe and reminded us that we should always wear a helmet when on our scooters or bikes no matter how short the distance. We all had lots of fun and it really got us moving. Even Ms stoddart and Mrs Fraser-Lee got in on the action.

We enjoyed it that much it became our inspiration for our posters as part of Health and Well-being week!

Science fun! 👩‍🔬👨🏼‍🔬

We had lots of fun today working with Mr Ashwell on a science lesson about sound. We did lots of investigating in our groups with a variety of resources, including glass bottles, water, polenta, speakers, xylophones and more! We discovered that sound travels in waves into our ears! 👂🏻

Look at all the fun we had learning …

Foodie Friday! 🎃😋🥣

Yesterday was our turn for Foodie Friday with Mrs Neill, so 5 of us went off to the ‘Creation Station’ to cook some yummy pumpkin soup and roasted pumpkin seeds.

We worked really hard to chop, grate, blitz and blend! And what delicious results! Well done everyone! 👩‍🍳👨🏾‍🍳👏🏻👏🏻

Ball skills in the gym 🏀

We were working on ball skills yesterday in the gym. We started off by warming up with a game of ‘Tail tig’ to get us thinking about our dodging skills.

Then we each took a basketball to work on our bouncing/catching and dribbling skills.

To finish off, we each had a go at shooting the ball through the baskets! Fantastic work P3/4/5! 🏀🙌🏻

Welcome back! 😊

It was lovely to see lots of smiley faces yesterday after our holiday, and we have been really impressed with how quickly everyone has settled back into the routine.

There has been lots of hard work taking place over the last two days… we have written about our exciting holiday news – with lots of us using paragraphs and super adjectives! We have worked hard in our reading groups with lots of us having new books to read and some of us on non-fiction books this term. In maths we’ve all worked so well on addition using the column method, some groups were adding 2 digit numbers, some were adding 3 digit numbers and some on 4 digit numbers. We have also learnt some new calming mindfulness tricks, done some dance in P.E as well as Gaelic and lots more!

Phew! 😅 Well done P3/4/5, a fantastic start to a busy term 2!

Here we are doing some excellent talking and listening to share our holiday news.
