Here at Ferintosh Primary, children's voices and opinions are highly valued and we want our children to be a part of the planning and decision making for our school. The children took part in a committee meeting with Ms Hammond, followed up by tasks with Miss Meikle. A main point discussed was that the children wanted to show their individual talents more. We came up with some ideas on how we could help with this, so be sure to keep an eye out for upcoming, amazingly talented, children.
This afternoon, we picked the apples in our garden. They were ready to eat and we decided as a class it would be a good idea to take them home to eat or bake with. We came up with an effective solution for everyone to get the same number of apples home. Everyone took one apple at a time, all at the same time, until there was not enough to share out anymore. Everyone got the same amount of apples to take home which I hope they all enjoyed!
For Art this week, we were creating tree pictures using natural resources from our wonderful outdoors space. We tried to make them as real life as possible, using resources that match what we were creating. They have turned out great!
We have been building and strengthening our Team Work and Friendship skills. Building Marble Runs and taking part in activities, working in a group, allows us to get jobs done quicker and makes our class into one big team.
At Ferintosh Primary, we are aiming for the stars! We have set some personal targets for Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Wellbeing for this term. We will keep these displayed and refer back to them until we acheive them. We all want to be the best that we can be!
With the weather being very wet and windy this afternoon, we completed our art inside and took some time to relax and unwind after a busy morning of learning and working hard. We focused on line work and how to fill spaces with pattern instead of block colour. We were also looking closely at how different sizes of lines can create different patterns and fill areas differently.
Mini Beast Scavenger Hunt
This afternoon, the children enjoyed being outdoors, investigating their playground area. We were on a Mini Beast hunt and ticked off as many as we could find on our lists. We were also exploring our senses outside. We looked for objects with texture, objects that are smooth, objects that have a smell and objects that are coloured. We were also looking at whether things were man made or grown from nature. We had great fun in the lovely weather!
Health and Wellbeing
The children had great fun this afternoon investigating Woodlouse, their habitats and behaviours. They then created bug hotels and race tracks to watch how the Woodlouse responded to a different location.
