Science Fun

We had lots of fun in p5:6 making our own Volcanoes today ! We learned about chemical reactions using acids and alkalines. We also learned how to write a scientific report. Jake taught us all about pyroclastic flow?


And Breathe

Our P6 pupils learned a lot about yoga, last year, with Mrs M.H.  They asked if they could share their learning with the class as a tribute to Mrs. M.H. This was a lovely idea ! Over the last two weeks , Mia, Harry, Jayden and Lilly have been  Hey teaching us how to use Yoga to be more aware of our bodies, breathing and mind. 

We have had lots of fun trying out some of the more challenging moves and it is teaching us to be more mindful. 

We enjoyed it that much that we now plan to incorporate weekly yoga sessions into our timetable.


It’s been a fabulous first week in P5/6. It has been great getting to know everyone and having a little insight into eachother’s lives through our info bags.  We have also got out class charter displayed. We created this on our transition day . 

Our PE days will be Monday and Thursday. Miss Barclay will teach us P.E. I will be posting an overview of the term,  next week.

 I am looking forward to meeting some of you on Tuesday and Wednesday . If you requested an appointment, I have sent a little note home in school bag mail to confirm . 

Some of the parents/carers are linked up to our class Dojo which is fab. I will send out notes next week with sign up details. This will enable you to contact me direct and keep update with your child’s school day.  If you have any questions please feel free to message me or call during school times. I will also be around at the end of each day . 

Have a great weekend .

Express Yourself

P5/6 were inspired by Russian-born French Expressionist painter Wassily Kandinsky. We worked together to recreate one of his most recognisable pieces of artwork : Farbstudie Quadrate . We explored the concept of warm and cool colours. It was quite tricky using a compass to help us draw a circle !
