Weekly Update - 08/03/19

What a week we’ve had this week! 

The P7 and P6s performed fantastically both nights in the school show! The show was a sell out!  It was a brilliant success and all their handwork practising singing, dancing and acting over the past few weeks paid off. Staff parents and carers have all been commenting on how brilliant it was. Rockbottom certainly did rock! 

It was also world book day this week and we had lots of classes taking part in different reading activities. We had paired reading going on throughout the school when pupils from different classes were invited to share their favourite stories with each other. P5a were authors and illustrators of their own stories which they read to P1. Both class seemed to love this. The P1s and P2s were also fortunate to have a visit from a librarian from Broughty Ferry Library. They got to hear lots of stories about bedtime related to our pyjama theme. P3/4 and P4 had a visit from Shona Robison MSP who read to them.
On Thursday, P4 went to the Whitehall Theatre and met different authors.

The P4/3s were doing a cooperative learning art activity about Harry Potter during world book day. They each had a small section to colour in and the finished product made a giant picture of Harry Potter.

The P1s have been busy making links between addition and subtraction. They’ve also been on a shape hunt around the playground to see what natural shapes they could find in their environment.
The P2s have continued to work on telling the Time. Mrs Pirie and P3/2 have been using written strategies for addition - this is helping them to work with bigger numbers.

Mr Horne has revealed the short film for the P5as moving image arts project. They have been watching ‘Little Freak’ (a short film) and writing diary entries from his point of view. It’s made for some very creative writing with fantastic descriptions. 

We’ve had a number of classes learning about different countries from around the world. The P3/2s have travelled all the way to Spain and have been learning how to flamenco dance.

We have also had two very exciting things happen this week:

  1. We have won the World Book Day hamper! This means that we have received a hamper worth £570 for our school library. Thank you to everyone who voted for us.
  2. Glee Club have made it through to the regional finals! They will be heading to the Caird Hall at the end of April to compete against the best Glee Clubs from around Dundee, Angus and Perth. Congratulations to the girls and boys who took part and thank you to Mr Horne and Miss Bastianiello for being all singing, all dancing legends.

Next week we have the P3s class assembly and some very important visitors.

Have a super weekend! 
Mr Robinson
