2nd Week Back After 9 weeks Of Home Learning

On Monday we started doing some spring art inspired by Romero Britto. Twelve of us worked on a big spring mural and the other 9 did their own Romero Britto work. In the morning we also did P.E . We do P.E at the end of the day as well and in P.E we did skipping.

On Tuesday we started doing maths again and we had 4 fractions tasks to do. We did some reading and continued with our Romero Britto art and at the end of the day we played capture the flag.

On Wednesday we continued with our Romero Britto art and did reading and at the end of the day we played a fun game of rounders.

At the start of the day on Thursday we broke up into groups and did our fractions. After break we played a team kahoot about apostrophes for V.C.O.P.

On Friday we all finished our big mural and did our basic facts. Then we did our spelling tests and at the end of the day we had golden time.

Extra Activities

Morning everyone, I hope you’re all settling back into online learning and are managing to access everything in Google Classroom. As you’ll know, there will be three learning activities posted every day, and in addition to those there are some optional extra activities on the Home Learning Grid. If that still isn’t enough to keep some of you occupied, then here are some links to some great resources from Education Scotland and BBC Scotland:

Merry Christmas!

Free Merry Christmas Clipart 2018

Well done P6/7, you have worked very hard this term, and without the normal highlight of the Christmas show it’s been a very different build up to Christmas. You’ve got a couple of weeks off now, so take time to relax and enjoy the Christmas festivities. Online learning is due to start on Monday 11th January, and hopefully you’ll all be back in school before too long.

Thank you all for your very kind and generous presents – they are really very much appreciated, and I look forward to opening them when I get home!

Take care, stay safe and healthy, and have a very merry Christmas!

Christmas Window Display

P6/7 have worked really hard over the last two days to create a fantastic Christmas window display. The display will be our Abernethy entry to the Rotary Club competition for local schools. The rules stated that the display needed to be on a ‘traditional’ theme, include a Christmas tree, and incorporate recycled material. The pupils decided to base their design on the four themes of Advent, and have used recycled newspaper as well as lots of odds and ends of paper from our art cupboard. Well done everyone for a great effort, the display looks great!

The First Days Of December

For the last week in November we learnt all about three festivals – St Andrew’s Day, Guru Nanak Gurpurab and Thanksgiving. We made comic strips to show the stories of these festivals and also performed some freeze-frame drama scenes to show parts of the stories.

Last Tuesday was first of December and the start of Advent! We learnt all about the traditions of Advent and we made an Advent calendar. We all drew a picture to fill the doors of the calendar. It is shaped like a tree and has sweets in every door!

After that we have had a busy few days in p6/7 like on Wednesday and Thursday we did a key assessment task. Today we had a Christmas jumper day.
