A Busy Start To The Term In Primary

It has been an unusual start to the term as we returned to learning during lockdown. However, everyone has been very busy and working hard on learning and developing their skill whether they be at home or in school.

Here are a few pictures and videos to show you what we’ve been up to since we went ‘back to school’.

Karen’s Creative Challenge

Each week Karen, the Head of Primary, will set a creative challenge. The first challenge she set was all about building towers. As you can see, we had lots of fun, building (and knocking down!) towers. We made them out of wooden blocks, lego and other things we found around the house, such as cushions.

Learning At Home

There has been lots of wonderful work going on at home. Some of you are joining in activities through your Google Classrooms and others are working on resources that have been sent home. However you are accessing your learning, remember we are always here to support you in any way we can.

Keeping Active

It is always important to keep active, whether it be exploring equipment in gym class, practising your ball skills, playing at the park or exploring the great outdoors with family and friends.

Celebrations

One pupil enjoyed celebrating her birthday at home with her family. We hope you had a wonderful day!

Fine Motor Skills

Many of you have been working on developing your fine motor skills. You’ve been practising your switch work, manipulating blocks and other materials and working on your pencil control.

Life Skills

We have been very impressed with how well some pupils are progressing in the development of life skills. You’ve been very busy setting tables, cooking lots of yummy looking treats and it certainly looks like you enjoyed tasting what you made.

And Finally…

We love seeing your enthusiasm and how you are engaging with your learning. If you would like to share what you have been up to please feel free to share any photos or videos via your child’s teacher, through Google Classroom, or email Amy Dunnett (Principal Teacher Primary)  adunnett@aberdeencity.gov.uk
