Working together in Class 10

The children in our room are learning to do lots of activities where they are sharing space and cooperating to work alongside each other.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Fair: 30th November 2019

Room 12 are holding another doll raffle, to be drawn at the Christmas Fair on 30th November 2019, all proceeds to Orchard Brae.

Included in the prize is a beautiful wicker basket bed, bedding, the doll and several outfits – from a bride’s dress, to clown’s outfit to pyjamas and matching dressing gown and more. Doll donated and bedding and outfits beautifully made by the mum of one of Room 12’s class teachers.

Tickets to win all this are £1! Come and see us at the fair to buy your ticket!

There will also be many dolly clothes at our stall available to buy separately. These are unique, handmade and better than any dolls clothes you’ll see in the shops!

Halloween Fun at the Pupil Council Disco

The pupil council decided they wanted a Halloween disco and a pumpkin carving competition on Halloween. We enjoyed a whole school disco, with all the tunes being selected in advance by the pupils.  There were lots of fantastic costumes too.

Potted Sports

Everyone enjoyed the Potted Sports organised by our PE Department on Wednesday. Thank you to everyone involved for the hard work that went into this, including our Howes Hoose pupils who supported at the stations. We all had a great time moving around in our class groups, finishing up with a running ‘marathon’ for any Secondary pupils wishing to participate. They were well supported by those opting to spectate.

Card Games In Room 10

The children in class 10 have been learning to identify cards in a pack and how to work together as a team in a game. We are then going to work on learning a card game to play with our friends and families.

 

 

Football Tournament

Last week some of our Secondary pupils attended a Football Tournament at Garioch Sports Centre. Once again we enjoyed the opportunity to socialise with young people from other schools and to compete against them in friendly competitions.

Social Maths In Room 10

We regularly play maths games in groups and with partners in room 10 to consolidate some of our learning from our maths lessons and to make maths fun. 

In these pictures we are using non-standard measures, calculators and some of the mathematical language we know.

 

 

Active Schools Curling Festival

Pupils enjoyed taking part in the curling festival at Curl Aberdeen. We rotated around 6 different stations and had the opportunity to try different activities. Everyone tried pushing the stones at skittles, targets and playing a game of curling. We all had different strengths: some of us were very good at aiming for the centre of the target, gently pushing the curling stones with just the right amount of force, while others were very good at skittles due to our ability to push the curling stone a long way.

Room 10 Experiment With Oil Paint

We have been playing with oil paints in class just to see how strong and vibrant the colours are. The paints were quite smelly, but the final work was fabulous.

 

World Book Day In Room 10

On World Book Day the children from Class 10 brought in books from home, looked again at some of our class books and took the opportunity to spend time enjoying some of the books they had taken out of the local library. We had the chance to share some of our favourite books from home which we all enjoyed.
