Last week during assembly we had a visit from Carol at SSPCA. The children learned all about how to care for birds and other animals as winter approaches.
We also gave certificates and stickers to our 5 Star Gold Award winners Archie and Ruaridh. Well done boys!
A small reminder that children are invited to wear a wintry or festive woolly jumper every Friday in December.
This is of course entirely optional, and anyone wanting to wear their normal school jumper may do so if they prefer.
…it was playdough! Great fun to make and mould, but also led to a lot of discussion around measure and the properties of materials. It was wonderful to hear a wide range of vocabulary being used, such as: half, full, three quarters, minutes, scales, firm, thick, solid, liquid and dissolve to name a few! Great work Class 1.
Today Class 1 were shown a selection of equipment and ingredients, then listened carefully to several verbal instructions. They carried out almost all the steps and will complete the final few tomorrow. But what could this mystery mixture be? 🤔
As we delve deeper into our ice topic, Class 1 have been thinking about its importance but also about how we protect ourselves from the cold. We did some investigating this afternoon and had to explore which material would be the most suitable for a winter coat. We introduced the word ‘insulation’ and clarified that we wanted a material which would stop heat from escaping. We were very lucky to have some special Thermochromic paper and used this to test our materials. We even recorded our predictions and results. Well done Class 1, a very busy way to end the week!
This morning we welcomed eight members of the community into our school to share some of our learning, songs and penny whistle. Thank you very much to Derek, our next door neighbour, for ensuring all our visitors arrived to and from school safely.
Class 1 performed their AMAZING superhero song, followed by a song telling us the story of Superworm.
Class 2 enjoyed sharing their penny whistle tunes to the audience. They played Twinkle, Twinkle and Auld Lang Syne, as well as Culters Candy and Hot X Buns.
Well done everyone and thanks again to all our visitors.
