P3/4 are RHET (Royal Highland Education Trust) Scottish Borders competition finalists! The class all entered a competition with a picnic design, with information about where their picnic would come from. The class are one of 6 finalists in the region. They have won a funded farm trip, class picnic and £50 book voucher. Thank you to Mrs Hamilton, Summer and Chloe for accepting the prize on the classes behalf. We are very excited about the prize and are in the planning process. More information to follow.
We re-visited our skills for using Skeches school today with the help of our P7 tech experts. We searched an image, uploaded it to the app, traced it and then added colour. We have just started using Showbie and a few of us managed to upload our learning.
A belated post to share some images from our Christmas Party in P3/4. We had a great time with games, dancing and a snowman snack!
In P3/4 we have been taking part in the Inspire 12 days of Christmas activities. Today we made a start on our table top green screen productions. The class had experience with what a green screen was used for. We are building on this previous knowledge by creating a festive film. Today we made our characters, chose our backgrounds and filmed our green screen. Next week we will combine these in iMovie to great our films and we will be able to hare them. Thank you to our p7 helpers.
We had a book thief in our class! We arrived in class to discover no books. We made our own books and then read Story Thief from the P3 Read Write Count Bag. This led us to some clues around the school until we found our books in Mr Guthrie’s office, we were relieved to find them. We also enjoyed a story and a ‘toasted’ marshmallow with a pretend campfire.
Better late than never! Here are some pics from the Hallowe’en dress up day last month. Lots of spooktacular costumes.
Today we were really having to think in small groups about a problem involving a sheep called Eric who was jumping the queue to be, shorn! We talked about it, used white boards, cubes and magnets. It created lots of discussion and challenged our thinking.
Play is an important part of our learning in P3/4. Today we had some time for play. We used our imaginations to create a den to draw in, run a cafe with playdough money and food, time to colour independently, playing Uno with friends and time to read.
In P3/4 we love reading books on our Ipads and from our class library.
Finding a quiet spot to read on our own.
Using a digital library on Get Epic.
Enjoying a book with a friend.
As part of our outdoor learning this week, we collected materials while in the woodland area and created faces in hoops to show different emotions. Look at these expressive eyebrows and mouths to help identify the emotions along with blue paper and ribbon for tears! As you can see, we also had a bit fun out in the woodland area too!
