P3 Maths Week #MathsWeekScot

P3 have spent Maths Week Scotland learning about Position and movement.

We have learned new vocabulary to help us give and follow and draw directions.

We then applied this knowledge to program a Beebot robot to move around a grid.

For outdoor learning this week, everyone enjoyed working with their partners to create a ‘treasure hunt,’ whereby we hid 3 objects, then directed our friends to find the ‘treasure.’

Appreciation Stations

We did a lesson on ‘Looking on the Bright Side’ in P6 and P7 and the pupils made their own ‘appreciation station’.

Kaled in P6 and Prithvi in P7 were nominated to come up on stage to represent their class during assembly.

P3 Authors Live Event Rachel Bright

We had the pleasure of joining a Live Authors Event with the Scottish Book Trust and BBC Learning Scotland this week

The author we listened to was Rachel Bright who wrote the books “The squirrels who squabbled” and “The Lion inside.” We enjoyed listening to her new story for the first time and had an opportunity to learn how to draw from the book’s illustrator, Jim Field!

We tweeted into the programme and had our class name and school mentioned LIVE ON AIR as they asked our question: What was her favourite story? The answer: The never-ending story.

The top it off, Rachel said our drawings of Goldie the Gecko were great!

P2 Maths Week Scotland #MathsWeekScot

P2 have been exploring 2D shapes and 3D objects and connected this to learning about the artist Paul Klee. They used examples of his work as inspiration for their own artwork.

P2 also went outdoors to explore numbers in the playground. They worked with a partner to answer some numeracy questions related to the playground and create their own question. IPads were used to record some of their answers.
