This week in Primary 5

This week we were making tartan out of plastic bags to help the environment and we had an open morning so the parents could help us make them.  It was really fun and I think all the parents enjoyed it.

Also this week it was red nose day so on Friday it was dress down day and every one was dressed down for it. I think we raised a lot of money for the donations.

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.

Underpants, race tracks and painted faces

This week , Primary 5s blog is brought to you by George M and Lilly.

This week we were at the cinema to see CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS. We went with the Primary 2 class. On Tuesday we prepared our writing  on World War One. On Thursday we learned about perimeter and area.  We learned that perimeter is the outline and area is the inside of the perimeter.     In maths, we also learned a new game.  It involves speeding round a race track answering times table questions.  Record holders:  Lilly with  15 seconds for the 5 times table and Hamish with 50 seconds for the 2 times table. On Friday it was dress down day for Children in Need.  Here are a list of stalls we have – beat the goalie, nail painting, lucky dip, bake sale, facepaint, raffle, button stacking and Pudsey.  It was a really fun day.   Thanks for reading. Bye!

Remembrance Assembly and Poppy Display

We have been learning about WW1 for Remembrance Day . We did an assembly about it. And we did the poppy display for the school and we made some of them.  We made the poppies from plastic bottles. In school we made acrostic poems with the word POPPIES. And for maths we have been doing measurement and we measured the corridor with meter sticks and trundle wheels. (by Elsie and James).
