P3a Learning Log Friday 11th May

This week in maths we had a number line and put halves and quarters in the right places.

In health and wellbeing we coloured in a person and wrote lots about how to stay healthy. We said we need lots of sleep, exercise, healthy food and we need to keep clean.

In topic we put parts of the human body onto Kendyll in the right places!

In literacy we learnt about comparative adjectives and wrote sentences. Here are some examples: I’m happier than Tymi because he lost his beautiful girlfriend! I’m the quietest in the class.

I need to get better at spelling. (Erskine)

I need to get better at writing more. (Dan)

Primary 6a Learning Log – April 2018

Primary 6 are undertaking Play Leaders Training in preparation for moving into Primary 7. The trainers from Smart Play had them out utilising all the loose parts play equipment and thinking about how they could lead this.

We made the most of the nicer weather this week by getting outside for art. We were sketching the tenement flats to add to our art work. It’s so much better to sketch from real life rather than a picture.

Jonny’s Learning Log

This week our co-operative learning was good because everyone tried hard, they all worked much better together and everything went well. Most people did all their jobs plus there were no arguments.

I enjoyed coding because it was good teamwork and you needed lots of concentration to write the set of instructions. It was really good fun especially when I was one of the robots.


I think everyone was well at rugby because  everybody put loads of effort in and many people didn’t even play rugby but everyone was really good.

Next week I hope everybody tries harder in daily mile because some people are just slouching about and some other people aren’t even stopping at all, so more people need to do that.

This week, what I really found fun was the final time with our PE leaders from Leith Academy. We did a mini champions’ league and I got touch of the tournament and I scored a couple good goals.

Pupil Voice- p4b w/b 23.04.18

Weekly Review       Week Beginning – 23rd April 2018   Class – P4b

Our topic this term is ‘Scottish Art History’ and we will be learning about art from Eduardo Paolozzi, Alison Watt, Jack Vettriano, Sir Henry Raeburn and Samuel John Peploe. The children are currently undertaking research on a selected artist and will be working in a group to create a poster presentation to their peers. We will then move onto creating our own (artist inspired) artwork.

If you have any books or resources related to any of these artists we would love to share these in class (and return).
