QuadBlogging

21 May

Today is our first day Quadblogging. Quadblogging is a fantastic way to share learning with different classes around the world. Four class blogs are linked together through the Quadblogging website. Each week one blog is the focus blog with the other three blogs visiting and commenting during that week. In week two, another class blog is the focus with the other three visiting and commenting. This is repeated until each of the classes has had their week in the spotlight.

This week we are focusing on Class 6 of Cathedral Primary’s blog. We explored their school website and commented on Class 6’s blog. It looks like they have a lot of fun learning like us. It was great to see some of their work and we were very interested (and slightly jealous) to see that they used i-Pads in maths!

Teaching to Save Lives

9 May

We were very busy last week putting our first aid training into action. The British Red Cross came into school during Health week and trained all of Primary 7 in every day first aid. We also looked at the British Red Cross website and learned lots more about first aid. Last week we took charge and passed on the lifesaving skills we had learned on the course teaching our teachers and primary 5 pupils.  We showed them how to put someone in the recovery position, treat a variety of minor injuries and how to help if someone is choking.

If you want to learn about everyday first aid we recommend the British Red Cross website. You can find it here: Life. Live it website.
