As part of their topic “Black Gold” P5/6F have been enjoying a block of printmaking . They have produced some fantastic prints based on their drawings of oil rigs. Well done everyone!
P1a were very lucky to be the first class to have a shot of our new glockenspiels. Miss Aitchison thinks we have lots of great musicians in our class. What do you think?
P3/4 enjoyed coming to school dressed as our favourite book characters last week as part of World Book Day in the 7th March.
In the afternoon we created our own books out of two pieces of paper. Our task was to create a new character, give our character a story title and design a colourful front cover!
The Nursery were really lucky to be able to take part in a ‘Dancing through the Jungle’ workshop with Sarah from Citymoves as part of the Arts Across Learning Festival.
This afternoon the pre-school Nursery pupils took part in a Creative Learning workshop with the artist Katie Hammond. They made their own gardens with lots of beasties in them!
Primary Four have enjoyed learning about the way our ancestors in the Stone Age lived. After researching the food they eat, the houses they would have built and the clothes they would have worn, we decided to create our own clay pots and bowls. We enjoyed getting messy and creating our own patterns!
P3S are all ready for sports day on Thursday! Our country is Botswana, feel free to cheer us on but remember not to call us by pur normal names- we answer to Swana names now!
Primary 1G have had a busy start to the week!
On Monday we enjoyed ‘painting’ our phonics outside on the playground with soapy water.
Today we have been learning how to sort items into different criteria – we each made a critter and sorted them into categories. In our maths work we have been busy exploring 3D shapes. This afternoon we had a visit from John who helped us to plant some flowers in the planters outside our classroom. We also created our ouwn snail collages in the style of Matisse.
Developing our drumming skills with regular weekly rehearsals! The group are progressing well. Learning to play the Drumkit with counts of four; adding drum fills and cymbal hits.

We looked at the part of the book that described the house and highlighted the adjectives. From that, we knew what the house should look like and we could start to turn it into a reality. Here are some pictures of how we are getting on so far…
