We at the the Press Gang have been busy reporting on what we have been doing so far this year. Our Press Gang members are James Aitchison, Zoe Nairn, Oliver Morter and Isla Aitchison.

“A New School Year”

We started back at school on 15th August. I found it hard to get out of bed, but I was excited about  being a P2. We have some new children in our class this year in P1.

When we got to school we found that our teachers had been busy making new areas in our classroom. We have a “Listening Area” where we can listen to stories on CD. My favourite is “Gangsta Granny” by David Walliams.

We also have a new keyboard to play music on. We have a sensory tray which has different things in it, like aqua beads and toy animals. They are great! My favourite part of the class is the reading area as you get to learn to read which helps us when we are older.

In P5-7, we welcomed some new P5’s who have settled in nicely.

Mrs McIntosh has created an additional “chill out zone” in the spare classroom which we use at choice times, for house captain meetings, reading and other activities. We are very lucky to have it. We also have a new group work area, Library and comfy seats.

P1-4 have also been on a visit to a mosque in Galashiels. When we arrived we went to the kitchen. There were lots of cups and jugs. Then we all went upstairs where we had to take our shoes off, but left our socks on. This was so it didn’t get messy, so that it was clean when they prayed. We made mosque puzzles and then climbed to another floor where we were given party bags.

We hope you enjoyed our reports and look out for our next report about activities and visits we have had.

P5-7 have been looking at the features of Urban Art and have designed their own pieces of work. We experimented with how to make our work appear 3D and how different colour fills and background can change the appearance of the work.

We are now recreating large-scale pieces of urban art to create a bright, colourful display for our comic strips we have also been making.
