It was a tight deadline...the pressure was on...but they did it...Defeat The Monster stories published! They are fantastic and we hope that you enjoy sharing them at home. Maybe P4 could tell you about some of the language features they used and which part of their story is which on the story mountain. 

Hip hip hooray...another birthday!

Pottery Masterclass!

We have just had a brilliant afternoon at the Pottery Masterclass. P4 were fantastic! They displayed their Personal Qualities of Respect, Communication and Adaptability. They listened carefully to instructions and have all learnt new clay skills whilst producing some superb pieces of pottery. Very proud of them indeed! Once the clay Russian Dolls are dry, we will have them collected so that we can paint them in class!

Thank you!

Schlumberger HSE Youth Seminar

posted 30 Nov 2017, 21:29 by Primary 4 Teacher   [ updated 30 Nov 2017, 21:33 ]

P4 were incredibly excited on Thursday morning to welcome their special guests from the HSE team at Schlumberger to our classroom (including one of our class dads!) The team taught us lots of important information about how to keep ourselves safe from injury.

A couple of P4 QUOTES!!

What we learnt (in the words of P4!):

"I learnt...and it's seriously going to to pick up something correctly"
"I didn't know that we should use those things (reflectors) at night!"
"That teenagers were more likely to get injured than children"
"That you should wear your backpack on two shoulders to stop too much weight on one shoulder".

What we enjoyed the most:

"I enjoyed EVERYTHING!"
"The tug of war!"
"The tug of war of course!"
"My gift and the snack!"

What I will use from this learning in the future to help keep myself safe?

"Pick up boxes correctly...I never used to do it correctly and neither did my dad... and both our backs hurt."
"The reflector on my bag and I won't just go and do something when my friends tell me to!"
"My reflector because now it is winter and it is usually very dark when I go to tennis"
"I'll wear my backpack correctly because I don't want to get hurt."
"If I go on a boat, I will make sure that I put my life jacket on before we set off"

Well done P4 and....
A BIG THANK YOU Schlumberger HSE team for a great morning!
