P 5-6 had a great first week back after the half term break.  We started the first day back with a Halloween party.  We had party food, played party games and danced.  Below are some photographs showing the fun we had.  You can also see photographs of us making banners in bright colours with exclamations on them.  We learnt about exclamation marks and when to use them.  We started planning our new topic 'Celebrations'.  We discussed all the things we already know and all the things we want to find out about.  We made paper chains and tissue paper pom poms to decorate our classroom as people often use decorations when they celebrate a special occasion.  We cannot wait to hang everything around the room.

P5-6 had a lovely if somewhat unexpected last day of term.  Please enjoy the photographs showing some of the fun things we got up to this week.  You can see us enjoying birthday celebrations in class, writing weekend news, making faces in the style of 'Picasso', practising our numeracy skills, learning how to tally and make bar charts, playing board games and making spooky Halloween spoons.smiley  I hope you all have a lovely extended half term holiday.  Best wishes, Ms McMurtry
In  P5-6, we have been doing the topic 'Mighty Me'.  As part of out topic, we painted our self-portraits over several weeks.  We used acrylic paint and a mirror to look at our facial features.  First, we painted a pinkish egg shape for the face.  Then, we painted the background using scrunched up newspaper and just a little paint to give a patterned effect. After that, we painted on our hair.  We added talcum powder to the paint to make it really thick.  We then dragged a fork through the paint to make a ridged textured effect to give the impression of hair.  Finally we added, facial features.  Ms McMurtry modelled on a piece of paper beside us the shapes, colours and positions of them for us to copy onto our painting.  At the end, we mounted them on gold card and hung them with string outside our door just like in a real art gallery.  We evaluated our own work and our classmates work saying what we liked about each self-portrait. We are all so proud of our work.
P5-6 had a great week learning and playing together.  Here are some photographs of some of things we do in class.  You can see us playing table top games, making jigsaw puzzles, playing literacy games, sorting seasonal pictures, making different facial expressions, reading books and painting their self-portraits.  Lots of fun! yes
P5-6 had lots of fun again this week. I hope you enjoy looking at the photographs of us playing games, making self-portraits, checking who is in school,  writing about the things we like, following directions at PE, making hedgehogs from leaves and showing off our amazing autumn display board.
P5-6 had a great fun-filled week. Here are some photographs showing some of the things we got up to. We collected autumn leaves, wrote autumn poems, played with construction toys, playdough, small world toys and board games.  We also painted a big tree for our seasonal display board, built dens in the back garden, went on a fun sensory walk around the school yard, wrote about our friends and drew pictures of them. We all love being back at school!  heart
We had another lovely week in P5-6.   In the photographs, you can see some of our classroom fun ie. building words, writing letters, drawing, painting, playing with games and small world toys. We also learnt about the autumn and the changes in the weather and nature.

Hello everyone and welcome back to school!  

P5-6 had a wonderful first week back at school.  We were all so excited to see each other again.   We had lots of fun playing together, chatting about our summer, our lockdown experiences, learning about washing our hands , face coverings, social distancing and all the things we can do to stay safe.  We are all so happy to be back at school and are looking forward to a fun school year together.

Kind regards

Ms McMurtry
