P3 & P6 Book Week Buddies

P3 have been reading and writing with their P6 Book Week Buddies. P6 came to read us a story. Then they helped us to share our favourite parts and say why.

Travis – My favourite part was when the mouse scared the Gruffalo’s child. I like reading with the P6’s because they helped to read the story.

Ivan – When the P6’s helped us to write about the story and what happened, and our favourite part.

Damien – I liked Zog because all the people from the Gruffalo were in it.

Michael – I liked drawing my favourite part with the P6’s.

Lily – Megan had a loud reading voice which I liked.

Lilli – I liked the P6’s taking turns to read Stick Man

Aaron – The P6’s made it really fun because they read Robot Rumpus in a funny voice!



Primary 4S Trip to the Cinema

Today P4S went on an outing to the Vue cinema at the Omni centre to watch The Good Dinosaur.Staff were impressed with the good behaviour and everyone had a great time!

“The film was amazing!” Ava

“It was exciting!” Rehema

“It was fun!” Aiden

“There were sad and happy parts,” Zach

We reviewed the film when we got back to school.  P4S came to the conclusion that the overall message was to be resilient and keep on going even when things seem hard. We gave the film 5 stars!
