Completed our papier mache bowls and filled them with Easter treats to take home
We have been outdoors alot this week enjoying the better weather. When the senior school were singing their socks off to Pirates of the Currybean ,the infants snuck over to the park for 20 mins. We all behaved beautifully and took turns on the apparatus.
Our MacRobert Cup team did us proud on Wednesday ,they looked absolutely fabulous and came back with lots of stories about the event. As a class, we are very proud of the eight children who represented us:)
Today unfortunately the weather was not so good but it didn’t stop us dressing in our sports kit and taking part in Sports Relief Day. Whole school cosmic yoga,a massive conga around the school,free style dancing, and then back in the hall for a keep fit session ..phew!
We have had lots going on in the P3 class. Shinty lessons from Tina which we are all really enjoying . Making some very realistic Stone-Age necklaces from clay . We also wanted to show you the fab new dictionaries Mrs Dunbar and Susan ordered for us through the Scholastic site using up points we had earned from pupils buying from their company:)
We were baking Stone Age style in P3 this morning with help from Mrs MacDonald, Mrs MacKinnon and Mrs P’s sturdy girdle pan.
We used traditional Spelt flour and water ,kneaded it int a dough which we rolled flat before baking it on the roasting hot girdle.
We allowed ourselves butter but also honey which the Stone Age people did gather from wild bees nests in the trees. As Alec said “Their pain was our gain!”.
We hope some of the children will make you some flatbreads at home for you to sample.
Primary 3 would like to wish everyone a happy holiday with plenty of time for exhausted parents to put their feet up.
Here are some photos taken of us all looking very smart for our Christmas Party. Thank- you for all the tasty treats sent in for our party food.
We have had such a ridiculously busy week ,beginning with our fantastic Nativity where we acted,danced,narrated our socks off(literally!). Built some interesting structures in the snow covered playground. Showed up in our Christmas jumpers today ,donating some money for Save the Children. We gathered in the hall with our jumpers and showed the P1’s how to do a Strip the Willow so we are all set for our party this Monday .
Thank-you for all your lovely comments on our K.A.T sheets they were much appreciated:)
We had a lovely afternoon sharing our Book bags with some of our folks that were able to make it and some Primary 4 reading buddies. We were all delighted with the books and activities that we found inside.
Our Painted Pebbles were flying of the sales table on Saturday, so much so Mrs Purvis wished we had painted alot more. All the money we raised will be used to purchase some new choosing activities for our class. Thankyou for all those who bought one.
We had a very busy week, working in different classes between morning break and lunch,trying our hand at different activities. In the Primary 2 class we made super pencil cases with our initials monogrammed onto them ! In the Primary 3 class we worked on posters to promote the school fayre,using the word processors to insert text boxes and pictures. In Primary 4 we used coding to move theBeebots around the classroom.
In our own class time we created simple “seige engines” adapting our designs until we found the best one to catapult the missiles(cotton balls) across the class.
We wowed the school on Monday with our fancy moves and bright clothing as we strutted down the cat walk . We were highlighting(excuse the pun) that with the dark nights and early mornings we need to be seen to be safe.
