Information for Parents

I would just like to take this opportunity to say welcome to the Leopards class page. Please keep popping back to see us here as we will upload photographs of our learning as well as important weekly information such as spellings and times tables.

PE Lessons:

are Wednesday and Friday, please remember to have your kit in school at all times & that school policy states that all jewellery should be removed, this includes earrings, plasters are not allowed. Due to marks being left on the hall floor we are also asking that children wear pumps inside now. They are most welcome to bring trainers for outdoor activities so if they can have both in the PE kit that would be fantastic. Thank you.

 

Water Bottles:

should be brought to school and taken home daily for cleaning and refilling, it is scientifically proven that children and adults function better when hydrated, enabling great learning. many children are asking for a drink during the day and we have limited plastic cups, so for hygiene reasons please do send your child with a water bottle, even when it's cold outside.

 

Homework:

Pupils will receive spelling, multiplication and reading homework weekly. This will be given out on a Friday. Children are expected to practice at home, return the homework sheet and have their reading diary signed at least four times a week. These basic skills are imperative to your child's education and practicing at home regularly makes a huge difference.

 

Thank you for your support smiley

Synopsis: 

When the mysterious Nowhere Emporium arrives in Glasgow, orphan Daniel Holmes stumbles upon it quite by accident. Before long, the 'shop from nowhere' -- and its owner, Mr Silver -- draw Daniel into a breathtaking world of magic and enchantment.

Recruited as Mr Silver's apprentice, Daniel learns the secrets of the Emporium's vast labyrinth of passageways and rooms -- rooms that contain wonders beyond anything Daniel has ever imagined.

But when Mr Silver disappears, and a shadow from the past threatens everything, the Emporium and all its wonders begin to crumble.

Can Daniel save his home, and his new friends, before the Nowhere Emporium is destroyed forever?

Scottish Children's Book Award winner Ross MacKenzie unleashes a riot of imagination, colour and fantasy in this astonishing adventure, perfect for fans of Philip Pullman, Corneila Funke and Neil Gaiman.

To practice plotting co-ordinates in the first quadrant this week, we played Battleships. It was tense!

Exciting letter! Before Christmas Year 5 wrote persuasive letters to our local MP regarding Finn's Law, which the children saw on Briatin's Got Talent. Here is the reply!

To follow on we have now looked at the phases of the moon. We made them using Oreo cookies. It's great when you get to eat your work afterwards!

Warburton's visit - the children discussed healthy eating, food wastage and hygienic food preparation.

Odd Socks Day 2019

Odd Socks Day 2019 1

During anti-bullying week, the Leopards class took part in 'Odd-socks day'. It was a way of opening discussion with pupils about their own uniqueness and appreciating and accepting one another. The children worked really hard, discussed topics maturely and sensitively and had fun too.

For National Poetry day the Leopards class looked at the poem Word Of A Lie by Jackie Lay and then wrote their own version!

In our materials topic in science, we started by observing what happens to skittles in water!

We followed this by designing and completing our own investigation into the rate of dissolving and the factors affecting it.

In design technology with Mr Evans, the pupils are completing a food unit of work on biscuits. They have analysed and tested biscuits already in the shops, then they moved onto adding texture and design to plain biscuits. By Christmas we hope they will have designed and made their own brand of biscuit.
