We had some practice using money today – so we are able to give the right change on Friday! We made our little shops and sold items from the classroom with plastic money. It was a lot of fun and good for us to get some practice!
We are hosting our Summer Sizzler Bake Sale (and more) on Friday 23rd in the gym hall. We will be selling cakes and different hand-crafted items. There will be games and face-painting too! We are very excited about it and look forward to seeing you all on Friday. If you would like to donate some home-baking or if you have skills in face-painting – please let us know, we would love to have your help!
The P3s enjoyed a fabulous trip to Deep Sea World today. A coach took 44 excited children and 6 adults over the bridge to Fife. It was a stunning day with beautiful views of the new Forth road bridge!
At Deep Sea World we encountered many different sea creatures, we touched a star fish, made our own food chain, watched divers feed some of the fish and rays, learned about sea horses, were delighted to see the seals playing, and saw some awesome sharks! WOW – what an incredible day!
Mrs McLaren sprayed us with her shrinking spray and suddenly we were as small as an insect…
P3B have been writing about the adventures they had the day they were shrunk. To help us imagine what it would be like to be so small we took our ‘mini me’ out to the school garden. We were amazed as the flowers looked so big! We could sit on a snail and worms were like snakes – what an adventure we could have! Our stories were amazing.
P3B have been learning about marine conservation in our Under the Seas topic. We were all shocked at the harm caused by pollution and litter in the ocean. This inspired our class to make posters to remind everyone not to drop litter in the playground or down drains. We also went out after lunch on Thursday to pick up litter lying around the playground. There was much excitement about using the special litter grabbers!
P3B tuned in to a live webcast with the children’s author and illustrator Alex T Smith on Wednesday morning. Alex spoke to us about his books, he read from his latest Claude book and even taught us how to draw Claude! We have read some of the Claude books in class and found them very funny. We love his drawings and were so excited to be taught how to draw some of the characters.
