Our Winter Poems

Primary 5 have been busy writing poems again. They have a Winter theme. Here’s what we did to help us write them:

  • We thought of somethings that we see, hear and smell in Winter.

  • We wrote these three nouns down, then placed two adjectives in front of each noun

  • For the last line of our poems, we wrote down three adjectives to describe how Winter made us feel.

When the poems were finished, we added them to a template in Microsoft Publisher and then saved them as JPeg files before uploading them to Windows Movie Maker.

Here they are below. Let us know what you think of them!


Friendship Cinquains

This week we wrote Friendship Cinquains. First of all we interviewed a friend in class and asked them these questions.

1.What is your name? 

2. What are some adjectives that describe you?

3. What are some activities that you enjoy? 

4. What do you think makes you a good friend to others?

5. Do you have a nickname?

We used the answers to help us to write our poems. Have a look and let us know what you think of them!

Welcome From Primary 5S/V!

Hello World! This blog now belongs to a new class at Carronshore – Primary 5S/V! We will be posting on here regularly to let you all know what we have been getting up to in class this session.

We thought we’d start of by introducing you to some of our favourite Precious Possessions. We’ve been writing about them in class and we’ve put some of them on here for you to have a look at. Please leave us a comment to let us know what you think :-)

Outdoor Maths

It was very wet and windy this morning, but last week the sun was shining! We decided to go outdoors for our maths lesson. We all had a clipboard and worksheets with questions about things we could see in the playground. Everyone in the class really enjoyed maths that day and we learned loads too!

Here is a video we made to remind us about the great time we all had learning outside. please leave a comment to let us know what you think.


Our Scottish Poems

Every January we celebrate Scottish Poetry. This year Primary 3 learned the poem ‘A Dug, A Dug’ by Bill Keys.

We performed it with a partner and we’ve chosen three recitals to share with you on here. It was hard to choose which ones to put on! Let us know what you think of them.

The first one is by Beau and Casey-Jo

Next is the recital by Caitlin and Katie.

Finally, here’s one by Ross and Stuart.

Our Animations

Today we all made animations.

Here’s what we did:

  • In pairs, we came up with an idea for a story based on ‘kindness’

  • We made a rough plan of what our story was going to be about in our Busy Books

  • We went along to the computer suite and made our animation scenes

  • In class we all shared what we had made and had a discussion about how we could tell our stories in more detail

  • Working individually, we wrote what happened in each scene

  • We got together again with our partner and decided what bits we would use to narrate our stories

  • We recorded our stories on the class microphone

  • The audio recordings were added to the animation videos in Windows Movie Maker

  • We then uploaded the finished animation videos to our school YouTube channel

Have a look at some of them here and let us know what you think!
