P5 18/19

Bible alive

On Tuesdays P5 will be visited by the Bible alive team. We have had 2 sessions so far and have really enjoyed it.  We have been learning about stories in the Bible through songs, poems, re-enactments, props and artefacts.

‘Bible alive has been a great subject to learn because it is a fun way to learn something new.’ Rory

 ‘I enjoyed when I got to dress up as Joseph during Bible Alive because it was fun to try on the costumes.’ Campbell

P5 party

Primary 5 had their party on Thursday afternoon. We played party games including pass the parcel, musical statues, corners and the elimination dance.  We also had some delicious biscuits (made by the canteen staff) and some other snacks.  We made our own party playlist which came in very handy for the dance competition at the end of the party!  There were lots of prizes and some great Scottish dancing too.  Thank you to everyone that helped us to make our party a success.  Here are some photos from the party!

Eden Court were amazing and special thank you to the Dance Artist Louise  Marshall!!

All the girls were superstars!!!! Thank you to them and their families. I have been so touched by the words of thanks but the girls are the true achievers. It’s moments like this that I love my job and all the children I work with.  I hope the girls will remember this day for what it was – truly awesome!!! More importantly they continue to believe they can achieve whatever they want to and KEEP DANCING !!






French Visitor

This week a lady named Anna came to visit the class.   She is a primary teacher from France. She brought a letter from her class that came in the form of a puzzle.  It explained that she has a class of 24 pupils.  We learnt about her school and she showed us a video tour of her school.

We made leaflets and PowerPoint presentations about our school and Inverness to give to her.

Anna even taught us a lesson about the human body in French. We have loved having you in our class Anna and look forward to hearing from you and your school soon!

Halloween in P5

As we all know, Wednesday the 31st was Halloween.  P5 decided to celebrate in lots of different ways.  For starters, Miss Campbell decorated the classroom in a spooky way.  Effie and Rosa also helped by taking in an amazing banner from home. Next, we wrote some gruesome descriptions about a haunted house.  In the afternoon we all designed our own pumpkins on paper.  We then used our designs to create our very own ‘satkins’.  Obviously they are satsuma pumkins!

Here are a few photos from our awesome day.

Banksy art

Primary 5 have had lots of fun over the past couple of days learning about Banksy and his street art. We looked at graffiti and debated the idea of it being art or just vandalism.

Today we followed in Banksy’s footstep s and designed our own street art using stencils we made from paper plates. What do you think?
