It is Friday again and you have all worked very hard. We are so glad to see a mix of online learning, pencil and paper activities and lots of practical activities. It is good to have a  balance!

This week we all thought about kindness and tried to do something kind. I really enjoyed hearing about the little acts of kindness and seeing your photos. Thank you.

Week beginning Monday 18th May.

Good morning boys and girls,

I wonder what you will get up to this week! Last week was very eventful and I really enjoyed the change of activities.


This week is Eco-Week, and as you know we are an Eco School and have been awarded our Third Green Flag, so Eco is no problem to us! So if anyone fancies something different to do this week, why not try a few Eco activities. You don't have to do these but it might be a change.


This week is also 'Action Mental Health Week' and it is focusing on 'Kindness'. This reminded me of the quote we have up in our classroom:

‘In a world where you can be anything.... be kind’.


Maybe you could do something kind for your mum or dad. They are working so hard with home schooling and are doing a wonderful job! 


We are continuing with our 'Rainbow Topic' and I know everyone is enjoying all the bright and colourful art that links with the rainbow.


Primary 2 will continue spellings in the new Prim-ed book and learning number facts for 9.

Primary 3 you will be working on Unit 28 for Spellings this week and the number facts for 19 - adding and subtracting.

I have also added some Area activities onto Study ladder for you that you should enjoy.


If you have registered for the Healthy Kidz Virtual Sports Day (optional) you will find information on the High Jump and Egg and Spoon race on pages 8-11 of the information booklet in the separate folder. It looks like great fun!


Please keep sending us your photos, they mean so much to everyone,

Have fun!

From Mrs Hughes and Mrs McKee

This is a quote from one of my favourite books- I think it fits in well for us this week.

So I thought we could combine our Rainbow theme with Eco week and I found this idea! A Rainbow snake made from toilet roll tubes and ribbon or string. Have a go or maybe you want to make some colourful animals of your own? Can't wait to see what wonderful creations you come up with!

Here is a great site if you want to listen to some new stories.

Some of the boys and girls might like to read other books than just books on Bug Club so  we would like to recommend Oxford Owl.

My Class name is cortamlet

My class password is owl23 (all lowercase).

The books are in age groups or colour coded and you all know the colour band you have been reading. Some of the books are on AR. If you have any problems just send a wee email and we will try to help.

Happy reading!

Have a look at this brilliant website which gives a wide variety of daily activities for you to do. Just click on your age group and away you go!

Work done and Thomas and Chloe are out having fun and exercising in the fresh air!

Thomas really enjoyed doing the skittle experiment!

Emily has been very busy helping mum and dad at home. What a great girl! Well done Emily!

The Hughes Eco Team have been at work. Joanna and her family have been cleaning up around the roads at home! They went litter picking, what a great job they did! They also made a fab natural materials piece of art. They must miss school!

Lois had a go at the Rainbow snake and it turned out brilliantly! Well done Lois I'm impressed. She really enjoyed making it too.

Emily made some Eco animals and a beautiful rainbow snake! I love the colours and patterns Emily!
