P3a had a great time in health week making smoothies and taking a nature walk.
P4 attended a food workshop at Wagamama.
They learnt how Wagamama prepared food and drinks and had a tour of the whole restaurant to learn about health and safety when working with food. They also got to learn about and experience how to make healthy food and drink. They liked the tasting part most of all!
In class pupils will be using all they learnt to create leaflets for how to prepare food safely at Wagamamas.
P4 went outdoors to learn about how to create a setting for their stories. They worked in teams problem solving how to create an interesting setting and a story line for their characters.
They then took notes of interesting words to describe what they could see, hear, feel and smell.
Using these notes they wrote some sentences to describe their setting in an interesting way.
P3a have been creating beautiful spring haiku.
Haiku are a Japanese form of poetry that uses a three line format and restricted numbers of “morae” which are similar to our syllables.
They also work to juxtapose two ideas and have a kind of fulcrum word where the balance shifts from one to the other.
They are often related to a spring or natural subject. So with spring in the air and P3a doing Forest Schools it’s the perfect time for trying them out.
Primary 3 were learning about the world through creative play during their loose parts play session this week. We saw some engineers, explorers, inventers, beauticians, builders and problem solvers to name but a few!
Loose parts introductory sessions are going on throughout the school at present as we roll out our loose parts play programme.
