Wednesday 30th January: We have now started our Africa project. We have started by learning something about South Africa. Today we looked at a video clip of some early African rock paintings. We went out to collect some mud to try and make some paint but then used our school paint to paint in the same style!

Wednesday 23rd January: Today in art we made "paper mes" and photographed them with something we liked doing.

Tuesday 22nd January: Today we did the RSPB Schools Bird Watch - it was a good chance to practise our data collecting skills!
We didn't see much variety but did see plenty of birds.

Tuesday 15th January: This morning we joined in with a Glowmeet with Catherine Rayner who wrote and illustrated Ernest. She read all of us the book and then showed the older ones how to draw a moose like Ernest. We sketched alongside her and then choose how to colour him afterwards. We uploaded photos of our pictures into the Glow group and had a nice thank you message!

Monday 14th January: We have started our new round of Quadblogging today. This term we are sharing with schools in Wellington, New Zealand, Salford in England and Texas in the USA.
Friday 11th January: Today we have been finishing off our work about Vikings ready to show parents and before we start our Africa topic. P3 and above also started a series of lessons using Scratch. Scratch can be downloaded from the MIT website here.
Thursday 10th January: This morning we had a visit from Sandra Laurenson and Maggie Sandison; they both work for SIC and came as part of the “Sussing Out Further Internal Efficiencies” (SOFIE) programme - we were very pleased that they thought that the school works very efficiently.
Wednesday 9th January: This morning Maria Leask came for the first of our traditional dance sessions. We went to the Hall so we could have lots of room. We were really pleased that some parents came to join in and help.
Monday 7th January: Today was the first day back after our Christmas holiday. Everyone wrote about their Christmas and their Christmas presents - you can read about that on the children's blog! In the afternoon we walked to the Hall for PE; we linked PE with some maths and geography work about angle and direction.
