Can I say a HUGE thank you on behalf of Mrs H and myself for all the lovely pressies. We were really overwhelmed. Thank you so much!

Thank you also for the prompt return of your requests for a parent/teacher interview. I will get back to you with times as soon as possible.

Thanks

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

We made a paper chain tree for the door of our class.

We also moved our scenery to the stage. It was very heavy, but many hands make light work.

Just a wee extra post to show the lovely 3D cubes we made today. 

The keys to success were, stay focused, listen carefully to instructions and let each bit dry before you try to move it….as a few of us found out to our cost!

P4/5 post 22/11/18

Preparations are well underway for our very exciting pantomime! The scenery group have been using their own designs and I have been drawing them much larger on the scenery boards, then we paint them and glue them. The costume group have been accumulating and designing costumes, and the hair and makeup group have been working hard on their creations too. It’s all coming together.

We had our first run through today………eeeeek!

It’ll be alright on the night….

Tables wise, we have been working on the ‘4 times,’ so I’ve given most children the 4 times tables race for homework. Thanks to everyone who managed to do the assessment from last week. The words for spelling are all maths topic related. Tricky!

I also introduced the division triangle. This will hopefully let the children see the connection between the tables and division. They were trying examples out on each other.

Sophie and Lillie’s picture/diagram shows you what I mean.

P4/5 weekly blog

Hi …………Before I forget!

This week’s maths homework will be on SUMDOG

As with a lot of these technical things…the kids know how to use it better than I do!

However, I have managed to put an assessment on, (I think) and they have had a practice at how to access it in class. 

Sumdog should work on anything with internet connection even phones. If there is an issue with access, please let me know and I’ll let your child do it on the ipads at school.

Your child should have either brought home their username and password, or memorised it, as they are fairly simple.

We have been continuing to hammer away at time! Digital, am/pm, minutes to and past and even in some cases, 24 hour. Phew!

We also went to the cinema this week. The film was interesting as no one had seen it before. The Giant Pear was a real adventure, as you can see from our very much posed photographs!

Just as a little extra insight into the workings of our class……

We use comprehension cards to improve our understanding of what we are reading. They have a short passage, and then the children have to answer multiple choice questions. The children seem to enjoy doing them.

Hope everyone had a super holiday! 

We’re all rested and good to go for the new term.

I’m going to do a quick wee post to cover this week, but next week I’ll be giving you more of an overview of what we will be covering up till Christmas…….I know…..

We have been looking at time, and next week we will be looking more in depth at digital, 24 hour (for some) and duration of time.

We were also doing a bit of smelly pumpkin scraping, which stank out the class for a couple of days, but was good fun. The children designed pumpkin faces, but Hallowe’en was actually over by the time I found time to carve the faces in!

(Spot Lily NOT scraping out the smelly pumpkins!)

Another commemoration this year is the 100 year anniversary of World War 1. We are making a poppy display as a whole school for this occasion. We got an old newspaper from Armistice Day image, and we have glued on tissue paper. We will stiffen and waterproof the poppies with PVA glue. I’m hoping it will work!

Congratulations to all our wonderful parents!

We are happy to report that All of our parents, grannies and friends have managed to escape from Narnia!

Thank you so much for being so’up for it,’ and giving up your time for their project.

I thought the children did a fabulous job of inventing the very unique clues for you to figure out. They helped me to make the scenery too. I think their enthusiasm was super. What a genuinely, lovely class. They are a great credit to you all.

Robert and Imogen took some photos and some films of the room to share on the blog. Cool pictures you two!
