The show must go on! We have had no power, no toilets, no phone and all sorts of absences but fear not, our show will be on at noon on Thursday at the school with refreshments to follow. All welcome. Here’s wishing everyone a fabulous festive season and a wonderful new year. See you in 2020!!!
We have been working together with all the other primary schools in our area to make a collective periodic table as part of a Science Project. Today we finalised our design for our tile that represents the element Silicon. This will be brought together with all the other element tiles and displayed at Ullapool High School. There will be a grand opening in Ullapool when it is all ready so watch this space for details.
This term in nursery we started by making a 3D mind map together to choose our topic for the term. We chose castles so we could also learn about dragons, kings, queens and most importantly about treasure. We built and decorated our own castle in the classroom with moat and drawbridge. We have also been growing our own crystals, some green like emeralds and some red like rubies. We built and decorated our own throne and some knights that can dance to guard the castle and have just made some magnificent crowns with flaming bright colours.
We read the traditional story of three little pigs then we worked together to make a story map and we practiced retelling the story to each other. Then we made our own versions of the story in our very own story maps and we practiced retelling our new stories. After that we wrote our own stories down and finally we edited and improved our final stories. Here are some pictures of our story maps and stories.
Scoraig and Badcaul pupils and parents came together on Scoraig to celebrate Diwali which is also known as a festival of light. We made Diva lamps from clay and painted them and then took advantage of the amazing weather and made beautiful rangoli patterns outside in the playground from natural found materials such as berries, sweet chestnuts, twigs and leaves. We even shared a lovely picnic lunch in the glorious sunshine.
Last week we had a drumming workshop with Dougie. We learnt how to use drumsticks, different drums, the didgeridoo and a thumb piano.
Here at Scoraig we have kicked off our new school year by refusing to let the weather keep us out of the outdoor classroom. Here are some photos of us identifying trees by their leaves.
We also created dinosaur models as part of our project.
This is us doing some place value work on tens and units with outdoor materials.
