What a busy day we had today! Here are the pupils working hard at their creations this afternoon.
We listened to our songs for the nativity and decided who would like to stand up before the audience and speak. Parts are not finalised yet and as some children will have quite a lot to say I think we may have to give out more speaking roles!
This week, we are sending home the Sumdog login details for you to access Sumdog at home. Your homework is to play a little Sumdog at home. The letter with the login details is in the maths homework jotters and will be sent home on Tuesday.
I hope you all had a fantastic holiday. It was great hearing all about what you had done in the holidays.
It’s been a very busy week so far with the excitement of the Fancy Dress Party and the Book Fair. The children had a chance to view some of the books today and the Book Fair will be in school until Tuesday next week. If your child wants to buy a book it is open each day until 3.30pm.
Please remember to send a change of gym kit to school this session. The children are going to keep them in their tray so they have a change of indoor shoes for when it is very muddy outdoors.
What a busy term we have had and the holidays have come round really quickly! The pupils have worked really hard and we had a fantastic trip to Cromarty. Next term we have a small trip to Vue Cinema as part of the Intofilm Festival on 12th November. A letter will be sent home at the start of next session with further details and a request for adult helpers to assist us on the trip. Thank you for your support this term and we hope you have a lovely holiday.
Primary 2 have been learning to tell the time. We can read o’clock and half past times on analogue and digital clocks. Today we began to explore durations of time. We used stop watches to measure the time it would take to complete a range of activities. How long do you think it would take you to do 20 star jumps?
What a fantastic day we had at the seaside. We climbed up to the top of a (small) lighthouse and found out about the air valves used to keep the fires going in olden times and how the lighthouse keepers communicated with each other through voice pipes.What an amazing view we had of the harbour and the seaside!
Then we found out all about the work done by scientists at the lighthouse and held dolphin’s and seal’s jawbones and teeth. Also, we found out about the different sounds made by different sea animals.
Finally we did a beach clean up and got creative with the different materials on the beach. We found some plastic and net on the beach and learned about the effect litter has on sea animals. We had amazing stone art and different kinds of sandcastles with moats. Thankfully no one fell in the sea, though some of us had wet toes when we didn’t run away from the waves fast enough. We didn’t make it to Rosemarkie which was just as well as we had some very sleepy children!
