P4A’s Incredible Bake Off

As part of our Food Focus Fortnight P4A cooked tremendously yummy snacks at home and brought in their amazing recipes to share with a small group of their peers. Miss Walker couldn’t resist the tasty snacks and was glad she didn’t have to choose the winning dish – a super effort from all! Thankfully the class managed to vote for their winner… Big well done to Laura for baking the most popular dish!

Sports Day!

P4A had an enjoyable time at our Sciennes Sports Day. Huge well done to everyone for participating with enormous enthusiasm and for their excellent team work. Thank you to our PE teachers Mrs Walker and Mrs Berry for organising a fabulous event!

P4A’s great day out!

Today P4A had a fabulous trip to Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway. We visited the museum and enjoyed a trip on the steam train. It was a lovely adventure and we even managed some lunch on the train. Unfortunately we didn’t quite make the cut for First Class although the children were exceptionally well behaved. We learned about locomotives and how they have changed over time. James Watt is one of the many famous Scots and inventors that we have been learning about. A great day had by all!

Goodbye Miss Fraser

P4A and Ms Walker really enjoyed having Miss Fraser around for the past few weeks. We wish Miss Fraser the very best and we hope that she comes back to visit us again soon. Thank you Miss Fraser!

P4A enjoy a Roman Feast! 

Earlier today we had a lovely time sharing lots of learning with our parents and grandparents to celebrate the end of a tremendous Roman learning experience. The children excelled themselves – well done! Thank you to all of the parents and grandparents who managed to come and join us. We had a super time! 

Latin in P4A

A BIG thank you to Anna Bell for coming in to teach us some Latin – the children (and Miss Walker) had a tremendous time. We enjoyed drawing similarities and comparisons to the English language. This supported our learning of the Romans. Thank you to Bridget’s mum for organising! 

P4B Measure Up!

P4B went outdoors for maths today and chose objects to estimate how long they were. They then measured these to check how close their estimate was to the correct measurement. Objects chosen included rhubarb, flower pots, watering cans, leaves, nettles and a ladybug*! Great to get outside for some hands-on maths.
