P2B filled their marble jar again! They are working very hard to get marbles and are managing to fill their jar very quickly. They have been getting marbles for listening well during assembly, finishing their lunch, trying something new at lunchtime and also for their fantastic manners. As a treat they voted and wanted to go outside for an extra play. They all had a great time with their friends. Keep up the great work P2B, Miss Baldacci is very proud!
This week Primary 3 have welcomed two cheeky robots, “Dash” and “Dot,” into our classroom. The robots are going to be used for learning more about computer coding and we are already working out how to give them instructions using the iPads. Here we are helping Dash and Dot to escape our lego mazes!
We had lots of fun during our Scottish themed week. We made kilts, learned a bit more about Robert Burns and were introduced to Oor Wullie. We also learned about procedural writing and wrote a step by step guide on how to make our kilts. Our poem and song for the Robert Burns’ concert went really well. Miss Baldacci was so proud of us and said it was ‘Fan-dabi-dozi!’ As a treat for working so hard we then had some shortbread, juice and tried Haggis flavoured crisps. They were tasty!
On Wednesday this week Primary 3 enjoyed a fantastic day out to Satrosphere. We had great fun exploring the different exhibits and participated in a workshop where we learned all about day and night. This has really helped us to understand more about our current topic of dark and light. Here are some pictures showing what we got up to.
This week in P3 we have been celebrating all things Scottish. We have been looking at the Glasgow based “Tunnocks” biscuit brand and have discussed how their bright, bold packaging is effective in attracting buyers. We are also learning about light and dark and decided this was a good opportunity to get creative with colours and tones. We have been designing our own version of the famous tea cakes but swapped the bright red packaging for dark, moody colours and we have been transforming the dark, somber portraits of Rabbie into glorious technicolor!

Primary 4 enjoyed football with Marshall this week. We learnt that friendship, kindness and respect were an important part of the game. Marshall showed us how mistakes can be a positive thing and how we can learn from them. We are looking forwards to developing our skills next week.
We have been working hard in primary 4 to improve our problem solving and mental maths skills. We choose challenges to complete with a partner or in a group. Our favourite problems to solve have been Captain’s Square and Code Breaker.
