the school where excellence meets opportunity

P8 Newsletter Term 3


Primary 8 is a brand new class to Nexus School and all pupils have fully settled in (end of term 2). In term 3 our topic will be ‘Seasons’.  Some of the learning we will be undertaking includes…in art creating blossom tree’s and a sensory art display, in french we are learning about the various clothes needed during different months and seasons of the year and in science we are investigating Earth and the solar system.

In cooking and accessing the community we will be planning seasonal food to buy and cook. We will be looking at the different types of weather throughout the year in geography too.

The children, following on from a science adventure in the sensory garden, created their own story book called ‘The Nexus Fox’ back in September, and since then have written two further books themselves – The Missing Children and The School Villains. What will term 3’s book be I wonder……

Friendships are cementing within Primary 8, SG1 and with pupils in our neighbouring class Primary 7,  which is lovely to see.
