Friday 22nd January:

It’s the end of another great week in Primary 5. Well done everyone!

Here are some of our highlights from this week.

We have been learning some Scots vocabulary and creating our own ‘TOUN’.

Here is a selection of the maps that were created. We were so impressed to see their learning of compass points from last week in action.

P5 have also being planning out a Burns Evening and have created a timetable of events for their evening. Their evenings sound like great fun!

Have a great weekend P5. As well as celebrating Burns Night hopefully you might be able to get out and enjoy the snow if it is still here.

Have fun!

What a great first week of home learning. We are so impressed with you ICT skills. Each day so many of you have been logging on to our daily TEAMS meetings. It is lovely to be able to check in with you all on a daily basis.

We have really enjoyed receiving pictures of all the work you have been doing at home.

Research Scottish Traditional Dress

Planning and organising our own Highland Games

Preparing a menu for a Burns Supper

P5 also shared some of the emotions they experienced over the Christmas holidays and explained which zone this put them in.

Congratulations on a super week of learning.

Have a great weekend.

Today Primary 5 had their Christmas party. We all had lots of fun playing games and dancing. We are definitely all now feeling the Christmas spirit.

Well done to all our last certificate winners of 2020.

P5 Sales Pitches

The children in Primary 5 concluded their enterprise project this week by pitching their Christmas truffles to the rest of the class (who were in the role of the managers at Tesco).

They used persuasive language to encourage Tesco to stock their truffles; they shared the adverts they had created for their products; they also shared their advertising billboard and the packaging they had designed for their product.

The group also had to discuss the cost to make the truffles; the selling cost and then share how much profit could be made on one box of truffles. The children did an excellent job and all spoke clearly and confidently.

Well done primary 5!

Friday Christmas Fun

Today instead of us visiting Pantoland, Pantoland came to us. We all enjoyed watching the online performance of Robin Hood and his Socially Distanced Men in our Christmas gear. Lots of laughs and crazy dance moves.

Today we had a chat about how many people might feel quite lonely at Christmas, particularly this year. We decided to make Christmas cards to send to a local care home so they can be handed out to the residents and hopefully spread some Christmas cheer.

We had SO many certificate winners this week, including a whole class certificate for excellent team work. Well done everyone.

Have a good weekend.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Primary 5 were getting into the Christmas spirit today. We decorated our door and made some lovely Christmas cards to take home.

We have decided to stop Special Day for now but it will return in January. We still had some certificate winners. Well Done everyone!

Have a great weekend.

Special Day Friday

Congratulations. It’s your Special Day!

We had a lot more certificates to hand out this week. Mrs Iley awarded two girls Perseverance Penny certificates for PE and I handed out lots of Motivated Mark certificates to many of the children for really pushing themselves in maths, particularly in mental maths work. There were several WOW certificates too.

Well done everyone.

Have a good weekend
