P4/5 Weekly Post

Last week the computers were down, so I’ll share some of last week’s photos too.

Red Nose Day was a hoot. Lots of red nose high jinks and some very good balancing acts…

We have found a good use for the old hose box outside Miss Graham’s class. We’ve put in a french display of classroom objects! Have a look next time you’re in.

Our project stalls are really coming along, and the children have been busy making flags and works of art. How cool is Murray’s tribute to Charles Rennie Mackintosh? What a fabulous job!

For National Poetry Day the whole school has been making up class poems. Ours was  a ‘Haiku’ which is a Japanese form of poetry which has the form – 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the next and 5 again in the last. The children made this one up as a class about The Rights Of the Child.

Here are some of the other classes’ poems too.

Thank you so much for your help with the Cartesian Divers. They look great, and very child made. Super inventive ideas.

Finally a couple of poems that we read during the week. We were reading the final dramatic chapter of Iron Man by Ted Hughes, and realised that the poem we read was by him too. And a cat poem by the brilliant Eleanor Farjeon….for balance!
