The Peggy Sue

The Peggy Sue is the 46 feet long yacht from the fantastic Michael Morpurgo story, ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’. But what does 46 feet actually look like? P5A investigate converting imperial measurements to metric measurements and then measuring and mapping out some ACTUAL SIZE yachts!

Wolf Brother Clan Camps

The novel ‘Wolf Brother’ by Michelle Paver certainly gave us several descriptions of setting to analyse and to inspire. P5A create their own mini camps after reading the story of Torak’s experience with the Raven Clan…

Huntigowk!

Did you know that in Scotland, April fools day was traditionally called Huntigowk Day? P5 were well and truly fooled when told there could be no sweeties for their ‘fractions of amounts’ challenge and that they would have to paint stones to look like Skittles instead…

To be fair, they were all quite excited by the challenge. And completely fooled. Roll up some real sweeties…

Sensory Poetry

In August 2020, primary 5A visited the community garden to gather inspiration for their adjective-noun sensory poems.

Lush leaves

Warm sun

Sweet scent

Rough ground

Deep beds

P5 Online Learning

P5 Online Learning

P4-7 will continue to use Microsoft Teams for online learning. It would be helpful if you could let us know, in school hours, as soon as possible if you are having trouble accessing Teams.

We will also provide opportunities for the children to interact live with teachers online via Microsoft Teams. We will begin hosting live check-in times with the pupils –at pre-arranged times in the week – from Monday 11 January. This will include opportunities for the children to talk to their teacher and to use Microsoft Teams’ two-way video functionality.

There is a link to Teams on the right hand side of this Class Page where you can log in directly using your child’s username 123456 and password.

Alternatively:

Google ‘o365’ (for Office 365)
enter your child’s email address 123456@ea.edin.sch.uk
then enter username and password

PLEASE READ THE ATTACHED RESPONSIBLE USE GUIDES AND SHARE WITH YOUR CHILD. CONTACT admin@sciennes.edin.sch.uk IF YOU DO NOT GIVE PERMISSION FOR THIS.
