A Busy Week In Primary

All the staff at Orchard Brae are missing seeing all our pupils every day and we are always eager to see and hear what you’ve been up to.  We love seeing what everyone has been busy doing while they are at home and we have some wonderful photos to share with you this week.

If you would like to share what you have been up to at home, please send any photos or videos via your child’s teacher, the Orchard Brae School Facebook Messenger page or email Amy Dunnett (Principal Teacher Primary) adunnett@aberdeencity.gov.uk.  Downloading videos from the Orchard Brae School Facebook Messenger page appears to be working again (fingers crossed!) however if you are having any issues, please send them using a free transfer site such as Dropbox or WeTransfer.

Google Classroom

It’s been an exciting week with our Google Classrooms going live and there has been lots of fun activities and Google Meets happening over the week.  If you haven’t yet signed up, here’s a little video to show you some of the things you can find on Google Classroom.

If you are having any issues logging into Google Classroom or would like further help, please contact your child’s teacher who will be able to support you.

Magnificent Minibeasts

We’ve loved seeing how much fun some of you had exploring minibeasts this week.  You went on minibeasts hunts and found some on your travels…

…you got creative and designed your own…

…and you also enjoyed making art with things you found in nature.

Working Hard

You’ve continued to wow us with the amazing work you’ve been doing at home, practising your fine motor skills through writing and painting…

…reading a story…

…sorting by colour, and ordering numbers…

…and identifying shapes and sorting money.

Life Skills

It’s been a busy week for you all, exploring and developing your life skills.  We were really impressed with how you’ve been helping with the shopping!  And one pupil got a special visit from the tooth fairy.

And Always Remember…

…keep having fun!

We can’t wait to see what you get up to next week!
