We worked together to find out all about our bodies and how they work. The P5/6 children were or tutors and helped us with our activities.
The P6/7 classes worked very hard on their last design unit. The brief was to use bright colours to design a poster for a fairground coming to Kinkorth. I think you will agree that these make a bright and eye catching display!
Pupils and staff were given the opportunity to fill a heart with what made them feel loved. Each person chose what to write or draw and the type of media they wanted to use to convey what was in their heart. I do hope that you get the chance to see our stunning display…Watch out for the next installment!
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!
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.
We focused on Fairtrade bananas on 15th March 2019 to highlight the importance of supporting Fairtrade farmers and buying Fairtrade products where possible.
We made our own bananas and sold them to supermarkets, we found that non Fairtrade farmers did not receive a fair price for their product and the supermarkets got richer. Fairtrade farmers received a fair price for all their hard work.
P6/6 Science Champions
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.
This term, P6/7o have been learning all about money. In our most recent lesson, we were learning about budgeting. We used our new skills to plan a french cafe for P1! We also had to use negotiation skills when working with other teams.
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?
Primary 5 have been learning and investigating food origins and FairTrade produce from around the globe.
They discovered the hard work farmers do to produce cocoa beans, bananas and many others foods we cannot grow in Scotland.
