Yesterday we started learning ukulele with Jules
and Nora. We learned a couple of chords and even manage to strum along with a couple of tunes.
Congratulation to Ignacy on winning a gold medal at a recent diving competition.
Ms Waters and Mrs Gibb would like to say thank you and well done to all the class members who put themselves forward for the roles of class Pupil Council Rep and Eco Rep. We had loads of volunteers who came prepared with great speeches about why they would be good for the job. After delivering the speeches, we voted and we must congratulate the following people. Caitlin is our new Pupil Council Rep and Amy is our Eco Rep. We wish them all the best with their new roles. They will of course be enthusiastically supported by everyone else in the class.
Primary 4 were definitely in the money today! We had a fantastic visit to the Museum on the Mound. We learned all about the Bank of Scotland building in our introduction and then we were split into 3 groups to do different activities. We learned all about early types of money and how it was used. We got to study bank notes close up and even got to hold £4000 in our hands. In our final activity, we learned about early coins and then we created our own. The class were so enthusiastic and fully engaged with every activity. I am certain your child will tell you all about it and perhaps you may take the time to visit the museum in the near future together. There you will be able to see £1,000,000!!!!!!
Ms Waters and myself would first like to welcome 3 new children into the class. We have Ignacy, Agnes and Rosa and they have all settled in really well into such a welcoming class. In our first week back, we enjoyed creating aliens by writing our names in mirror writing and then adding different features. You may need to get your child to point out their special alien!
We are also doing a mini novel study on The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. The class produced these fantastic chalk pastels of the Iron Man. We definitely have a class of budding artists. We look forward to meeting you on Tuesday 29th at 3.30pm.
