P4/5 Make games for P2

P4/5 designed and created games that used magnets. The pupils worked co-operatively in groups to plan, problem solve and create games that would be suitable for a P2 audience.

P4/5 then shared these games with P2. They had to explain how to use the games and support the pupils to be ensure everyone was included.

P2 were encouraged to engage with the games and think about how well the games were designed and constructed.

P4/5 planned feedback forms and supported the P2s to share their views. P2 scored each success criteria out of five and gave 2 stars and a wish.

P4/5 will write instructions for their games next week.
All pupils were fully engaged in this experience and demonstrated the school values by being: responsible, respectful, kind when supporting each other and including everyone.

P4/5 Maths in the Wild #MathsWeekScot

P4/5 went down to the woods for Maths Week Scotland.

They found lots of maths when we sent them on the maths hunt amongst the trees.

There was leaf symmetry, twig counting, twig sums, branch weight and mass, tree ring age counting, and counting spots on leaves.

After the hunt we built number tic tac toe games by making 5 twig bundles to build numbers 1-9.

Missing Clothes, Property and Snack Boxes

We are only a few days into the new school year and already we are having reports of lost property.

The biggest cause of lost property in school is not the children leaving it somewhere, we expect that and try to gather it.

The biggest cause of lost property in school is unlabelled items.

With so many children wearing identically sized clothes, either uniform or sourced from the same shops, it is inevitable that confusion occurs and very often isn’t spotted at home.

The same is true of lunch boxes, water bottles and snack bags. There will definitly be anohter child or more with the same item.

Please label with, or write on all items and clothing, the child’s name and ideally surname and class as well.
