Discover some GREAT spelling tips!
Teamwork Tina was really impressed with three of our Primary 6 pupils – she noticed them working and learning together as they had ‘GREAT‘ fun helping themselves to remember how to spell the word ‘great‘…..
The girls have been suggesting and trying out various different strategies to help themselves to remember how to spell words.
Teamwork Tina as well as Mrs Ross and Mrs Dale have been impressed with the effort and creativity as well as the great teamwork. WELL DONE! 🙂
Our CKPS Superheroes are pleased to be able to CONGRATULATE two of our P4 pupils this month…. take a look at the slides to see who has been noticed for their hard work and determination to succeed….
Can You Believe It?!
Fred Frog and his P3 friends have been busy learning how to read words with the ci and ti sounds. We have learned that the ci and ti graphemes (the way we write sounds/phonemes) say the same as the sh grapheme. Our CKPS Superhero Challenging Charlie has been challenging us to read some really tricky words like delicious and scrumptious! Can you believe it?! We had some fun celebrating our hard work and success by baking some delicious gingerbread men biscuits….. they tasted scrumptious and hopefully some of our family members enjoyed tasting them too!
P3 and P5 Love ASL Literacy Buddy times…
Fred Frog’s P3 friends are really enjoying Literacy Buddy times with their P5 Reading buddies. We practise reading our green and red words; we enjoy reading and listening to stories together; we add words to our phonic sound trees; we play literacy games; we celebrate our success and PRAISE OUR PARTNERS; WE HAVE A LOT OF FUN!
Learning can be such fun!
P4 and P6 Pupils Impress Teamwork Tina…
Our CKPS Superhero Teamwork Tina really enjoyed seeing us all work well as a team when we met up and enjoyed time reading and playing a literacy game with our ASL Literacy Buddies. WELL DONE everyone!
Dr Seuss said: You can find magic wherever you look! Sit back and relax, all you need is a book!
Find out what Jaimé , Tara and Ben have been upto recently…..
Our Growth Mindset CKPS Superhero Challenging Charlie enjoys celebrating success! Well Done Jaimé !
Tara and Ben have been busy at the allotment. Tara started work at her allotment bed way back in the Autumn time. She has been busy recording the changes to the bulbs she planted in her allotment diary. Recently Ben has been helping her with some weeding. We have enjoyed seeing the crocus flowers blooming, a sign that we will soon say Goodbye to Winter time once more and Spring will soon be here!
And here are a few photos of the crocus bulbs Tara has been growing indoors:
CKPS Superhero Creative Cameron loved this lesson with Fred Frog….
Fred Frog is feeling so pleased with everybody’s progress reading lots of his tricky green words…. we have each been working and trying hard to do our best and Fred Frog has noticed how we are now more confident to tackle tricky words and read words at sight more often.
Perseverance Penny Celebrates!
Our Growth Mindset Superhero of the Month for January was Perseverance Penny….. she was delighted to give out a few certificates to some of our P5 ASL pupils; P5C’s member of Mrs Clark’s Growth Mindset Mob came along to sign the special certificate for our proud and pleased hardworking, persevering pupil who produced some super writing about a lost tortoise. Mrs Dale and Perseverance Penny say: well done….. ‘you found a new route and gave frustration the boot’ as Perseverance Penny says in her motto!
Fred Frog had a ‘nice smile’ when he…
… saw his P3 friends enjoying learning all about two more sounds this week: a-e (make a cake) and i-e (nice smile). Our CKPS Superhero Motivated Mark noticed just how enthusiastic we were to both make and taste the cakes. 🙂 And Focused Felicity watched how well we concentrated when we were decorating our cakes with ‘nice smiles’, as well as when we were reading our a-e words. Here we are enjoying the final stages of decorating our cakes:
We had to look for rhyming ‘a-e’ words all around our classroom with our partners; then we enjoyed using one of Fred Frog’s celebrations to celebrate our success because we found and read all our rhyming ‘a-e’ words: plate, late, gate, date, hate, rate….. cake, lake, shake, take, make, bake…. same, came, blame, frame, lame, name.
Fred Frog and Black Hat Bob go fishing with their friends….
This week we had fun doing some fishing with our pirate friend Black Hat Bob and Fred Frog….. poor Black Hat Bob was wishing for a fish to go with his chips for his tea…. he waited and waited until at last he was excited to feel a tug on his rod…… but …… oh dear….. what a disappointment….. he had fished up a smelly old wet sock…… not a delicious tasty fish! He did not fancy eating sock and chips for his tea!
Fred Frog was so proud of all the wonderful ideas and great team work when we were having fun doing some role play together after we read the story. We then went on to do some super writing about fish – in the photos below you can see us reading our great writing to share our good ideas with our friends. Some of us showed our super writing to other members of staff in school because Fred Frog was so proud of our achievements. WELL DONE everyone!
We’re always busy with lots of different activities with Fred Frog….. we are getting so good at reading so many more of our ‘green words’ more easily. We work really well with our partners, taking turns while encouraging and praising one another.
Every day we use a different celebration to ‘celebrate our success’! Ask us which celebration we like best….. who has a favourite one? Fred Frog’s favourite is ‘FAN……. tastic’! Mrs Dale’s favourite is YEE…… ha! Ask us to show you the actions for some of our different celebrations….
Fred Frog has news of adventures with Pirates….
Happy New Year from Fred Frog and Mrs Dale. We hope you’ve all had a happy time with family and friends over the Christmas and New Year holiday and that Santa brought you some lovely surprises. 🙂 Hopefully the lovely stAR and whIRling twIRling angel decorations we made with Fred Frog’s help, found a place to hang at home over Christmas time. We made the stars when we were learning about the ‘ar‘ sound, and the whirling twirling angels when we were learning about the ‘ir‘ sound.
Before the excitement of Christmas time arrived, and after the excitement of having some of our family members join us for a lesson, we had some exciting adventures with and as Pirates as you can see in this next collection of photos. We had a fantastic time reading and listening to stories about Pirates before we dressed up and acted like Pirates, and finally created our own ‘WANTED Red Hat Rob’ posters for a missing pirate who stole Black Hat Bob’s treasure chest! Thanks A LOT to Mrs Matear, Mrs Clark and Mr Morley for lending/giving us the Pirate resources which helped us to have so much fun while we were learning to read and write with Fred Frog. Who can you recognise?….
We had some amazing adventures in our Pirate Ship!:
Fred Frog loves working with his wonderful P3A Team. Our CKPS Superheroes are so proud of them, especially Achieving Alfie and Teamwork Tina.
WELL DONE P3A …. keep up the great effort and terrific teamwork in 2019! 🙂
