Gardening Tools Wanted!

If you have any unwanted trowels or forks tucked away in your garage or shed, we would love to give them a new home to help us look after our playground.

If you are able to help, there will be a box in the reception area next week for you to drop off any tools.

We are also looking for children’s gardening gloves. If you have any that your child has finished with or has grown out of, we would be delighted to have them.

Many thanks

Squishy squad! 

Eat sleep squish repeat 

 On the 10th of December we are selling de-stress balls in the top area. All the de-stress balls are 50p or a pound so no need to bring in a five pound note. There will be a DIY stall for people to draw their own faces on the squishies. There are the colours pink, gold, blue, yellow, purple, green and orange to choose from. Our squishies are made by filling a balloon with flour or rice. We also recommend not to squish them too hard otherwise they may burst, however, none of ours have burst yet. All the money will be going to our class charity and a P7 trip.

Reflective Friday – Friday 22 November 2019

By Abbi and Amelie

Literacy

In Literacy this week we have been learning to write a suspense story. In this process we have been developing our skills on our descriptive language whilst filling in some gaps on a worksheet. We are doing this so we can write our spectacular stories next week.

We have also been revising on our ‘soft C’ so we can use a new way to learn our spelling words so we can use different fun ways to learn them all.

 

Numeracy/ Maths

In Maths the Boroughmuir high school teacher Mrs Walker came in and was teaching us some more algebra! But unfortunately, it was our last maths lesson with her.

Also in maths we were having a go at some maths times table sheets there is different levels (Bronze – silver – gold – platinum – platinum 2) everybody started on bronze and if we got all of the questions right we will get a bronze certificate but if not, you will have a go next week.

 

IDL/other

  • Ceilidh dancing (P.E) e.g. The Gay Gordans – The Dashing white Sargent – Military two step.
  • Sports hall athletics.
  • Cluster choir.
  • Enterprise (getting £5 home)

 

 

What we enjoyed

Some of enjoyed going to the Sports Hall Athletics.

Some of us also enjoyed going to the cluster choir rehearsals at Boroughmuir high school.

We all enjoyed getting our £5 home.

And also practising our ceilidh dancing.

 

Next steps/home learning

Our class are taking part in the Entrepreneur task of ‘make £5 grow’ and we have brought the £5 home and we must start making our products for the 10th December and we have to start making our products.
