Newsletter 26 May 2016

News from Mr Bewsey
This final term is quickly drawing to a close. It’s quite amazing to think that another school year is nearly done. Our P7s are almost ready to leave and our nursery pupils are literally banging at the classroom door! There is quite a lot going on over the next few weeks to help prepare for next session. I hope the information contained in this week’s newsletter goes some way to answering questions.

Violin tuition

On Tuesday morning, our visiting music tutor, Mr Johnson, and some of his colleagues performed a number of excellent pieces on the violin and other stringed instruments. The purpose of the concert was to demonstrate to the pupils the ‘wonder of strings’. Violin tuition will be offered to pupils to begin in August to look out for more information soon.

P6/7 News

Maths

In maths p6/7 has been doing algebra, area outside in the playground and in our daily maths we have been doing the 8 & 9 times tables.

Language

In language are writing newspaper reports about the netball competition or walk to school week. Also we all learned German words and phrases.

Topic

Our topic in p6/7 is Malawi and so we were creating power points about a girl called Memory who lives in Malawi. After that we did a presentation about the houses that we live in compared to the houses in Malawi. The houses in Malawi were made out of grass and mud but our houses are made out of brick and wood.

Art

In art we have been doing sewing things to do with Malawi.
