Sponsored Walk — 2019/20 ~ News

Sources of Information

We have been concentrating on reading for information and non fiction material this term. We are very lucky to visit Glenurquhart Library every 2nd week to pick 3 books of our choice, at least one being non-fiction. Last week, we had an interesting visit from Katie at the Library who shared useful skills to help us research effectively. We will have a further visit from Katie in October and we will be learning to recognise suitable and reliable sources from the internet.

Eco Bird Feeders

P5/6 had great success at Glenurquhart Horticultural Society Flower Show. We worked in groups and designed and created Eco bird feeders made from recycled materials. We had fantastic designs including water trays, bird perches and refilling seed trays! Our tatties in a pot also won a prize!

Maths mysteries

P5/6 have been working hard to improve their mental maths knowledge and working on quick recall of basic facts of addition, subtraction and times tables. We have played card games such as paddle, click and split to help with this. Why not have a go at home! We have also used our maths knowledge to solve the maths mysteries!

A visit from Dramabox!

We had a fantastic visit from Louisa from the Dramabox. We enjoyed being creative and expressing ourselves through Drama activities including creating shapes and acting out “Excuse me, is this your beetle?” We showed great improvisation,cooperative and creativity skills through these activities. Well done P5/6!
