Motor Skills Activities

We have been working on our fine and gross motor skills in Room 8.

We have set up “Room 8 Repairs” we are upcycling some old stools, recovering an old bench and making a pompom rug .

If you would like to practise your fine motor skills at home try out some of the following activities:

Sewing or threading activities.

Making pom poms.

Using chop sticks or tweezers to pick up beads, buttons or lego.

Use an old tennis ball, ask an adult to cut a mouth out for you, add googly eyes and feed him buttons.

Threading beads or making perler bead creations.
Check out our pom pom rug!

Make a peg tower using washing pegs and sticking them to the table with plasticine.

See how long you can make a chain out of paper clips. Why not have a competition with a friend to see who can make the longest chain in 2 minutes.
Why not make your own lacing board with cardboard, felt pens and ribbon?

World Book Day 2019

We decorated our classroom door with our favourite part from our class novel, James and the Giant Peach. We created all the characters and wrote about the story.

We took part in an Eco Play Session with Sarah. She told us a story and we helped to bring the story to life with our voices, ideas and puppets that we made.

We also took part in our School Competition to create our favourite character out of a paper bag.

P4: No-Pen-Day-Wednesday!

Today at Kirkhill, our pens went on strike for a day! In P4 we watched a story that imagined the reasons why pens and pencils might quit, made other objects disappear and found them again by playing Object Hide and Seek, practised some Zumba in the classroom to keep us fit and healthy, and discussed what we would do in some tricky situations. We did all of this JUST between break and lunch time because we love to work hard!

P4: Art, Maths, and Building Design!

P4 have been very lucky to have Mrs Kerr in the classroom once a week to teach them Art this term. The children have been making different 3D Shapes out of 2D Nets and then designing their own artistic patterns to create bright and attractive model buildings. Once finished, the children had fun trying out different building layouts by placing the 3D models in different positions. They are going to add to this village layout with artistic 2D mapping, and 3D construction.
