This term Primary 6/7s have been working with the Primary 1 and Primary 2 pupils teaching them the science behind experiments such as ‘Erupting Volcano’ and ‘Making a Canister Rocket.’ This is their favourite term as the pupils become the teachers.
Our class topic this term is ‘Scottish landscapes and Farming’. We are very excited to learn all about our country. We started off our journey of learning with a knowledge harvest. We discussed in groups what we already knew about Scotland, what we wanted to find out and how we wanted to share our learning.
P4 were practising some football fitness with coaches from the Russell Anderson Development School. The children each worked with a partner to develop some activities that help improve their football skills and keep them fit at the same time.
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 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.
As part of our topic we explored the local community in search of different types of land usage and buildings. We noted down our findings and took pictures as evidence. We also had a visitor from the community talk to us about Aberdeen in the past and show us some historical pictures.
