Poetry in P6/7!

Recently, in P6/7 we have been learning about how to write poetry. We have been learning about Cinquain, Look what I found and Cats sleep anywhere. We created all our poems outside, and used things we saw and found in the playground as inspiration. Here is two of the poems:

Look What I found,

A rock,

It’s big and hard,

I found it in the bushes,

I wonder where it came from?

Here is a Children play anywhere poem.

Kids play anywhere,

Through the bushes,

And in there lairs.

Kids play anywhere.

Up the trees,

Through the leaves,

Feel the wind,

Feel the breeze.

It’s smart what they say

About where they will play

Children play anywhere.

As you can see, we had a lot of fun with our poems outside.

RGU Excitement

P5/6 have enjoyed having students from RGU take us for PE on Friday mornings. We have learnt touch rugby skills, basketball skills, about the muscles in our bodies and tennis skills. It has been great fun. Our favourite was everything as we couldn’t decide on just one.




P5/6 PE

P5/6 are learning about athletics in PE. Today we learnt how to do a pull throw, the type of throw used for javelin in the Olympics. We tried a three ways to throw and found out having our arm as far back made the beanbag go further. We then used the pull throw technique to see how far we could throw. Outside we took a run up to our throw and we played a game called Shark Infested Waters, where we got points for where the bean bag landed, the best scores were 810 and 900!

Position and Movement

Primary 1 have been learning about position and movement.

We have been learning left and right through games and songs.

Every child got to explore the Beebots and programme them with directions.

Today during outdoor learning we practised directions in the playground. The highlight was definitely when Mrs Low created a map through hoops, but kept it a secret from the class. The children had to work as a team to try and work it out!

Police horses at Braehead School

Primary 1 had a fantastic experience today when we spotted two police officers on horses beside our school. We went to the playground to have a closer look and we were very kindly treated to a talk about the horses. We got to ask questions and we even got to pet one if we wanted.

The police officers had travelled up from Ayrshire to work as part of security for a conference at the AECC.

It was a very special experience for us all!
