Class 1 – Hanukkah

This week, to finish off our celebrations topic, Class 1 have been learning all about Hanukkah. 

We’ve loved listening to the story of the Maccabees, making dreidels, performing the dreidel song and learning how to play the dreidel game.

Today we’ve brought our dreidels home, along with a set of instructions. We hope families enjoy learning how to play!

Class 2 – Fitness

Class 2 started their fitness topic in PE today. To get an idea of what our fitness was like, we completed a circuit of 1 minuite stations.  It was a lot of fun combined with a lot of sweat and puffing!

We then set ourselves some short (3-4weeks) targets and some long term (8-10weeks) targets. We are optimistic that our results will be better.

Rosalind Returns

Rosalind returned to Daviot today and Class 1 were so excited to resume their Kodály sessions.

As on previous occasions, we will have a four week block of sessions exploring rhyme, rhythm, beats and much more! What a fun way to start the term 🎶🎵😊

 

Shared Learning-Comic Books

This afternoon Class 2 had the opportunity to finally share their finished comic books with Class 1. They used Book Creator to create their comics on their Chromebooks.

Class 1 had the important job of giving the pupils feedback on their stories. They had to think carefully about what they enjoyed and one thing that could make it even better.

It was a lovely afternoon of sharing and learning together. A great start to term 3. Well done everyone!

Term 3 begins

We look forward to welcoming everyone back to school tomorrow at 8.45. We hope everyone had an enjoyable break and look forward to hearing all about it.
