P2/3 Waspital


Today we had a VERY active day at school!  At P.E we had fun playing our new game Waspital,  where today’s health challenge, suggested by Ava Young, was to do 5 burpees.

After that we worked in groups on a sequence to include a roll, bounce, kick, throw and catch, using a ball.

Later we took part in the fun run where EVERYONE did a fabulous job! A huge well done!

Lots of fit but tired boys and girls at the end of the day!

P 7 Sphero Workshop 28.9.18

We used our maths and communication skills at the University when we attended a Sphero Workshop. We completed several challenges: Making the “robot” move along a line, make a square adding in light and sound effects and then getting it to dance! Thank you to our parent volunteers who helped.

P3 Science

Could pupils bring in any empty bottles (juice or water bottles) you may have at home and would be putting in the recycling bin. We need the bottles to create something for our science lesson!

Thank you!

P1/2 – Lighthouse Learning

P1/2 were busy this morning learning about lighthouses and why they are positioned high up on rocks, rather than low down on sand.  We discussed the important job that lighthouses have and what they do to keep sailors safe in particular weather. Here we are decorating rocks to go along with our fabulous mini lighthouses that we made last week.  We also painted some lovely whelk shells in seaside colours which will complement our textured shells ever so nicely!

P1 Open Evening for Parents – Tuesday 2nd October 2018

All P1 parents/carers are welcome to attend an open evening on Tuesday 2nd October, from 6.30-7.30pm at the school.  During this Open Evening, we would like to share what the P1 pupils get up to in class with regards to literacy.  A variety of  active literacy resources will be available to peruse, and play with if you wish, as well as information on what staff use to help support our P1 pupils and what parents/carers can be doing to help support their child at home.

It would be most helpful if parents could write a small note stating that they wish to attend the open evening in their child’s red reading record books/diaries, so that the class teachers can have an insight as to how many people may be coming.
