On 11th November at 11am the pupils and staff held a 2 minute silence to remember those who have fought and lost their lives in conflict.
At the end of the silence a video of The Last Post was played. This video was provided by Mr Johnstone, teacher of the The Youth Music Initiative. The video featured pupils from South Lanarkshire Council.
P4-7 are hard at work on their new topic “Or Crop, Our Land”. The pupils have invented a cash crop called The All Rounder. They have created a fictional farming community called Croptopia. They have created farming families and have written biographies about each family. The children are enjoying the topic and looking forward to finding out what happens to this farming community.
As we could not have a “normal” Hallowe’en party in school we decided to have a fun Dress Down Day.
All the children came to school in casual clothes.They decorated pumpkin biscuits and made slime. We had an outside party and played games like Hallowe’en Corners, Musical Statues and Musical Chairs.Mrs Nunes, as usual, did a bit of cheating in that game.
We all had a fun time and were then looking forward to Hallowe’en in our village.
The wee class have started work on their new topic “Farmland”. So far they have been learning about vegetables and meat and also about vegetarian food. In their class they have a toy farm. Soon they will be learning about farm machinery and safety on farms.They have been learning lots from a youtube channel made by 2 young children.
All pupils have returned to school after a lovely October break. The wee class have started a farm topic and the big class have started a Global Storylines topic “Our Crop, Our Land.” The pupils are all very enthusiastic and looking forward to this term’s teaching and learning.
The Big class receive their music lessons online from Mr Johnstone at the moment.
The Big Class have started a class novel “Granny” by Anthony Horowitz.
P7s looking for their spelling words in “Dictionary Race”.
The pupils from P1-7 experienced their first Forest School Day of the year, just before the October holiday.
The children walked to Fairy Gate Wood and on arrival the big class trampled down the overgrown areas around the fire circle and the paths.
They then did the risk assessment so they would be safe during the activities.
The wee class made toast over the campfire with Mrs Nunes. They ate it with jam on.Yummy!
The big class made clay faces with Miss McCartney.
The activities were then swapped round and after that it was free play.
The children did a half day in the woods as it was the first one of the year.
They walked back to school and had a yummy lunch of soup and fish fingers from Joanne.
All in all it was a great day.
The pupils of P1-3 made this beautiful sign for the front door. They each coloured in some rainbow letters. They were then displayed on this piece of wood donated last year by former parent Mrs Mhairi Hunter. She thought we would be able to use it in some way. She was right!
Thank you Mhairi!
Both classes have worked hard all term, getting back into the way of school life. They have all enjoyed seeing their friends and teachers again.
The Big Class loved their unit study “The Stick Man with the Big Bum”. They enjoyed trying lots of activities that the main character tried. The favourites were Chalk outlines, Squirt Toy and Live by the Dice.
The Wee Class have loved their Fairyland topic. The dragon asked them to create their own fairy tales which they did.
All pupils are looking forward to their October holiday and are excited about the new term.
Last Friday George, Callum, Zoey and Nadine visited us so that we could say a proper goodbye to them. We were unable to do this in June because of the Lockdown.
P4-7 organised a sport event The Hunger Games.It was a great afternoon and the refreshments provided by Joanne were delicious.
The S1 pupils were presented with a scrapbook full of good wishes and lots of wonderful photographic memories.We wish them all the very best at Biggar High School and in their future.
