Autumn Term

In Art lessons we have looked at different landscapes found in Scotland.

We identified different features within the landscapes including mountains, rocks and water.  We then carefully sketched our own versions of our chosen landscapes. 

In PE we have worked hard to carefully improve our ball skills, in particular under arm throwing. We have learnt to throw to targets accurately and have enjoyed playing team games.

Olympic gymnast Daniel Purvis came to school to visit us!

Our whole school had an assembly with him, which was very interesting. We learnt all about how he became a gymnast and how he continues to succeed and stay healthy in his life each day. 

We also completed circuit activities with Daniel, look at the photos below to see us in action!

French Languages Day

Today we enjoyed learning how to pronounce some of our favourite foods in French and also enjoyed taste testing different varieties of delicious croissants from Lunko.

In Geography lessons we have been learning to name and locate the 7 continents and 5 main oceans. We have used maps and globes to help us identify different parts with growing independence. 


In our Maths lessons we have worked very hard learning about the place value of different numbers. 

We have used base ten to identify and create different two digit numbers, used part-whole models to partition numbers and practiced counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
