An underwater adventure in P4K!

What a busy term we have had already, full of fun and exciting things.

Our topic this term is Ecosystems in the Oceans and Seas. We are focussing on the Great Barrier Reef in the Pacific Ocean and the North Sea.  The children have been learning about: continents and oceans, ecosystems, food chains, life cycles and all the sea creatures swimming around these parts.  It has been super learning interesting and ,somewhat, random facts about all the living things under the water!  We have learnt about sharks, dolphins, turtles and even the creepy-looking angler fish down in the deep! We would give Sir David Attenborough a run for his money, that’s for sure! We look forward to hearing more about these animals during our Talk Presentations.  Finally, related to topic, the children have been working really hard on imaginative stories.  We hope to create mini-books of their final drafts.

We also had a super week learning about Road Safety and we welcomed our visitors in for Open Afternoon.  It was a super, and busy, afternoon where the children spoke about their learning and the visitors had a chance to see some of our wider school areas, like Rights Respecting, Eco Schools and Fairtrade. The children also took part in a wonderful recital of a Scots poem in celebration of ‘Rabbie’ Burns (Captain Puggle).

We look forward to the next couple of weeks!
