Ceilidh Fun!

We have been enjoying learning a variety of Scottish country dances as part of our Scotland focus this term. To celebrate the end of this block of learning, we enjoyed a wee ceilidh this morning.

The children worked brilliantly in their partnerships, danced in time to the music and we even showed off our Virginia Reel dance to p3B at the end of our ceilidh.

Then it was back to the classroom for some shortbread, yum!

Brilliant Budgeting

Today we were combining our recent work on Toys and Money. Pupils worked collaboratively in pairs to research the best gifts to buy for different characters. They had to take into consideration the age of the character and had to stick to a set budget.

They also developed their tech skills by navigating their way around, and filtering the website.

Super teamwork and excellent budgeting, well done 3A!

Toy shop

To round off our ‘Toys’ topic carried over from last term, today children in P3A worked together to create their own toy shop in the classroom. The children discussed and planned what a shop needed, the things they would need to make to sell and how it should look. Lots of thought went into how to help the role play come alive with ideas of name badges for the shop keepers, scarves and hats for the customers coming into the shop and even gift cards to purchase! There was great delight when all the elements came together and the shop was ready to open, even complete with a security team – see if you can spot them in the photos! The children loved calculating how much money to spend and how much change to give, connecting up maths and the toys topic.
