We had perfect weather for PE this week. We were learning how to use space effectively and how to shadow our opponents. We were practising our throwing and catching skills while having great fun too!
Congratulations to Alex, our Star of the Week, for his fabulous art work. His observation skills and attention to detail was great. Well done Alex!
We had a wonderful visit from the Kakatsitsi performers this week. They are from the Ga tribe in Ghana, where they speak over 50 languages including English, French and Ga. They taught us a traditional fishing song and taught us how to play the drums and shakers. We learned that when you change the position of your hands, you can change the sound the drum makes. They call this tone, bass, slap and tips. We loved having a go ourselves! Playing the drums was our favourite part.
Congratulations to Cameron, who was our ‘Pupil of the month’ for his fabulous maths work. He puts so much effort into all of his work and has fabulous concentration! Well done Cameron!
P5a are concentrating on invasion games in PE just now. We have been developing our spatial awareness and having great fun too!
This week has been a very busy and fun week!
We have been learning how to keep ourselves and each other safe during food preparation. We have created information posters, with our own individually designed mascots, to communicate what we know about food hygiene and safety and we are very proud of the result. We are very excited to put our knowledge into practice next week as we begin to design and create our own recipes!
Congratulations to Maria, who is our Star of the Week for her fabulous information poster. It was really informative and beautifully presented. Well done Maria!
We have had a fabulous and busy week in P5a. Our highlights have been learning about food hygiene and safety, increasing our heart rates while having a great time in PE, learning about place value and learning how to use our Chromebooks.
Congratulations to Andrew, who was our ‘Star of the week’ for his fabulous reading work. Well done Andrew!
This week the upper school started Explore classes: our new outdoor learning lessons (p3/4 will have this next week). All 250 kids had the chance to say what they thought Explore should be about and what they wanted to learn. All the classes started making class totem poles! To quote one P5, “This sounds amazing!”
