P5 Mrs Murray's Class

BFG PotionsActivities

Posted by J Murray Thu, March 01, 2018 06:38PM

The pupils investigated what substance the BFG may have used for making his potions. The children all had to predict if the substance would dissolve in the water and also had to explain why the test was fair.

The children all worked well together in their groups and were able to record their results. They even thought of their own potions!!

World Book DayEvents

The pupils showed off their reading skills to P1 and P2 pupils to celebrate World book Day. The children really enjoyed demonstrating how to read with expression and were great role models for the P1/P2 pupils.

Well done to all the children who have completed five squares on the Reading Rocks grid. Some children even managed more than five squares. Many thanks to all the adults who encouraged their children to read more!!

The children had fabulous fun playing the drums with Joe. The pupils were taught how beat out a variety of rhythms. They all participated and enjoyed making a lot of noise!!!

Moon ArtActivities

Posted by J Murray Fri, February 23, 2018 07:48PM

As we are learning all about the Solar System we all created our very own moon in Art. The pupils used cotton wool, tinfoil and string to create texture and craters on their moons. They then had to mix a variety of grey shades to illustrate the true colours in the moon. Have a look at some of their fabulous creations!
