P4/5

Just a quicky…

We were working on coordinates. The brilliant game of Battleships is a great way to practise. The children should know how to play now! 

The children were thinking about the traffic issues around our school, and how to solve them.

Please try to have their Cartesian Divers ready for Monday if possible. 

Open morning is Wednesday 13th 9:15-10;00. The children will be doing a science/technology task.

On Red Nose Day  it’s a dress down day. Merchandise will be available form Monday. We will also be visiting the Book Fayre on Monday, so remember money and tokens if your child wants a book.

Our Fair Trade art has turned out well, but we need some Fair Trade product packaging to fill the baskets. If you have anything, please give it in.

 

Thanks!

 

 

Collaborating with Chromebooks Information Evening for Parents – 27.03.19

The Digital Dynamos pupil group would like to invite all parents/carers to their ‘Collaborating with Chromebooks’ Information Evening on Wednesday 27th March from 6-7pm in our school gym hall.  

The Digital Dynamos will be presenting throughout the evening and everyone will get a chance to use, learn and play with our new Chromebooks and Chromebook tablets, as well as other mobile devices we have available at school.  More details are intended to follow regarding this exciting family learning event!

Primary 4/5 weekly post

There has been a lot happening this week…..again! Do we ever stop??

Last Friday we had Thinking Day for all the organisations. They looked good in their outfits representing Brownies, Beavers and Cubs in our class.

Happiness Day was fun, with all the lovely favourite clothes and colours, and things that make us happy! Thank you so much to everyone who attended the Health and Well-being event on Wednesday as well. It was heartening to see so much support. It meant a lot to the stressed out HWB working group of teachers who organised the daytime and evening events. A HUGE thanks to Miss Graham, Miss Munro and Miss MacDonald!

We made Cartesian Divers in science. The children all have to make one for homework (hence no follow up task for the spelling) this week for a class competition. All the details are in the literature I’m sending home on Friday with your Key Assessment Task. Mrs Kellacher will be judging their efforts. You are encouraged to work together with your child if you wish, but try not to do too much!!!! Very hard…

In sign language we were doing bingo with members of the family, which was a lot of fun. We have learnt the numbers too. Ask the children….it’s really easy!

In Maths the primary 5s are working hard on extending their skills with fractions, decimals and percentages…

…whilst the primary 4s are looking at how to do a chimney  multiplication sum.

 

The open session for this month is on the 13th March (9:15 – 10:00.) This has been brought forward so our stalls will only be partially ready, as we will be doing the official World Fayre for the rest of the school later in the term. However, as it turns out, I was supposed to be having a science focussed session anyway! So we will show you our Cartesian Divers and you can have a look at what we have got ready, so far, for the Fayre. A work in progress!

The highlight of the week for me, was when we played ‘Teacher Bowling.’

A lowlight was when it took two of them to get me moving……….Hmmmmm

Thanks!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Attention All Parents!!

Important E-safety Information for Parents

It has become apparent in a number of classes across the school, that there has been a significant amount of discussion regarding the ‘Momo Challenge’.  As a school, we are keen to promote digital safety and encourage our pupils to stay safe whilst online, at both school and home, by making responsible choices.  This also encompasses our core values as a school and we therefore try to promote and encourage our pupils to share concerns and be responsible in their online usage.

Many parents/carers may already be fully aware from national media coverage that this is a challenge presented on certain social media outlets that many of our children use frequently.

We are always working hard to ensure online safety, and in light of current topics in the media we have attached some parent information as support below for you to peruse:

What Is the Dangerous Momo Challenge on Social Media? (Parent Video)

We hope you find all of this information useful in supporting your children and all our pupils and ultimately keeping them safe online.

The Lochardil Team.

Book Fair March 6th – 11th

Celebrate World Book Day on March 7th with a new book from the Scholastic Book fair. 

March 6th – 11th. Books are in the open area outside Room 10. 

Pupils can buy books through the day or after school until 3.15.

COMPETITION TIME! Win  a £5 book token to use at the Book Fair. Bring in a photo of yourself reading  a book. Prizes go the most unusual location/place/idea!

Entries to the office by Tuesday 5th March. Have fun reading out and about or even upside down!

 

Busy week in P4/5

Lots on this week!

We were looking at the amazing 9 times table, and discovering some of the very cool patterns that you can find.

As you can see, the children got so into it, that I was having difficulty stopping them!

Our fabulous primary 5 children were performing alongside the Scottish Opera people. They did us all proud. We don’t have pictures, but hopefully you managed to get along to see it.

We also had our Unicef simulation event.

I have attached the letter that Unicef issue after the simulation. Being the ‘Best Class in the School’ really helped! They were very sharing and supportive. They went through a whole range of emotions, and came out the other side much more aware of what it feels like to be in an emergency situation. Lots of super discussions.

Parent info letter Unicef Simulation Day (updated)

We also did a bit of technology. The children had to design and build a bridge that would hold 1kg. There was also a prize for the prettiest bridge which Kyla won.

Have a lovely holiday, and see you back at school on Wednesday.

 

 

TESCO Tokens – Lochardil comes first!

We are delighted to share that Lochardil has received the most number of tokens in the recent round of  the TESCO Community Awards Bags for Life Scheme. Our Wise About Waste application should now be more achievable and we look forward to using the money (£4,000) effectively.

A big thank you to everyone who supported us.

We studied the ‘Legs Proform’ and ‘Person Proform’…. (a proform is a commonly used sign that represents a lot of things, but you have to think about how you are using it……..ask the kids!)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We will be looking at regional variations, and how to express intensity of feeling next week. All very interesting, and no alphabet to be found….yet!

In other news…We played a game where you had to find your partner by asking questions that could only be answered with a yes or a no. Very tricky!

What a lot of fun was had by all.

Can I just say, a huge thanks to all of you. We have had a ball in the first half of the year, with a brilliant bunch of children who are supported from home in so many ways. This makes my job much easier!

So here’s to an exciting and very Happy New Year!

p4/5 blog

Well we did it! Oh yes we did!

Thank you so much for all your kind words. The children were fabulous and amazing. They did so well. 

I got some photos of everyone getting ready, and Robert took some of the open afternoon, which, again, thank you for coming to. We have such a fantastically supportive parent base, it’s no wonder the children are so good!

Thank you once again and here’s to a very productive last few days! 

If anyone can join us at the CCC on Thursday, walking over and back with the class, it would be much appreciated. I think we leave 9:30ish. Just pop a wee note in with your child to let me know if you’re available.

Thanks!

Christmas Dinner and Christmas Jumpers!!

Just a quick reminder, the children will be receiving their Christmas dinners in the dining hall for lunch tomorrow if they have ordered them and all children and staff are encouraged to wear their finest Christmas jumpers if they so wish!  Please do not go out to buy a jumper especially for the occasion, it is the company and the wonderful atmosphere that we are all looking forward to tomorrow!

Many thanks, The Lochardil Team
