P7 Bake Sale

On Friday afteroon P7 held a Bake Sale during our Playground Grand Opening.

Thank you to the pupils, families and staff who baked lots of lovely treats for our sale.

There was a great turnout and the P7 pupils were super at selling and providing customer servic.

The pupils raised an amazing £295. Thank you for purchasing our yummy treats and for your support.

After hearing about our bake sale and fundraising ideas we have received 2 very generous donations over the weekend taking our total to £350!!

What a super start to our residential trip fundraising. Thank you all and well done P7.

“We did well organising the sale in a short space of time.”

“I enjoyed helping sell.”

“It was a very successful event and we are very grateful as the money will help towards the cost of our residential trip.”

Keep an eye out for more events throughout the year 🙂


P4 blog 05.10.18

A very brief blog this week.

We spent this week finishing off our team stories, practising our story actions and composing a piece of clapping music to go with our story work. Next week we hope to add some percussion instruments to our performances as the finishing touch.

We filled up all our classroom walls with a selection of our work this term to make a bright and pleasant environment.

We all greatly enjoyed the open afternoon to showcase our new playground equipment and re-modelled garden, especially since the sun chose to shine.

Thank you to… and celebrations:

  1. A big thank you for all the lovely swimming pool designs. We have photocopied the colour ones and made a lovely wall display outside our classroom.
  2. Well done to Charley and Chloe who were our class Dojo points’ winners.
  3. Well done to Stephen who was our certificate winner for excellent listening skills
  4. Star homework awards, this week, went to Felix, Imaad, Layla and Angelika
  5. Times tables’ dojos went to Tyler N., Aidan, Charley, Aiden, Jan, Felix, James, Reece, Tyler S., Chloe, Jamie and Alex for doing well or improving on last week’s score.
  6. Well done to Kayla, Imaad, Aryan, Malak, Rudi and Steven who are all ready to move onto the next times table.

Reminders and up and coming news

No homework was issued this week as all the jotters have been collected in, so we take time to review what we have learned, enjoyed or would like to change.

P4 weekly blog

Thursday – Day of Languages Celebration

  1. We wanted to teach each other the things we knew about different languages. We split into 7 teams and 2 members of each team rotated round the different groups leaving an expert behind each time. Japanese was a big hit with Judo words being taught and Judo moves being demonstrated. We had South African, Urdu, Bangladesh, Polish and a lovely lesson from Malak on Arabic writing. Some of us also chose to make up our own language and demonstrate how it might be written!

2. Our class novel- Esio Trot has tortoise language in it (which is English written backwards) We did some of this for handwriting:

Can you speak tortoise language?

Nac ouy kaeks esiotrot egaugnal?

  1. We also learned some Scottish words from ‘The Sair Finger’ poem by Walter Wingate:Your pinkie? Deary me!I get my specs and see!Noo, dinna greet nae mair.I’m sure that wasna sair?
  2. See there – my nneedle’s gotten’t out!
  3. My, so it is – and there’s the skelf!
  4. Noo, juist you haud it that wey till
  5. You’ve hurt your finger? Puir wee man!

            We had a go at learning this off-by-heart and reciting it out loud to the class.

Number Work

We have been looking at adding hundreds, tens and units. In week one we learned that if you find out your height and multiply it by 3 you get a rough idea of how tall an elephant is. We found out our heights during Maths Week on Measure and so we are now using this information to work out our elephant height. It is quite tricky but we worked in teams of three because three brains are better than one when you have to problem solve.

James’ elephant will be 100+30+100+30+100+30=? centimetres tall. What strategy can you use to add all these numbers together?

Show and Tell

We shared all our interesting items with each other and talked about how to do this politely.

Thank you to… and celebrations:

  1. Star Writer awards go to: Mason, Tom, Felix, Kaii, Layla, Tylar N., Aidan, Jamie, Tyler S., Kayla and Charley.
  2. Well done to Malak for winning this week’s T-party certificate. Malak won for her contribution to our languages’ celebration day.
  3. Well done to Felix who was our class Dojo points’ winner.
  4. Well done to Jan and Aidan for star homework and a big WOW to Aryan for being ‘the best of the best’ with his homework this week-it was a truly amazing effort.
