A day in the life of Primary 1

Primary 1 had a fun and busy day back! We started with Halloween themed funky finger jobs to develop our fine motor skills. We had squishy eyeballs, elastic bands on pumpkins, colouring, filling the cauldron using tweezers and Halloween pasta and making monsters using playdough.

Our literacy work was exploring letter m. We made a letter m mouse and completed some jotter work. It was much more fun wearing m for moustaches!

In numeracy today, our main focus was addition. We decorated addition signs to get familiar with them. We completed addition sums, solving them by counting.

In the afternoon, we were delighted with the arrival of a magic toy box. Inside were some toy soldiers and a note asking us to learn about Remembrance Day. We created beautiful poppies by printing with potatoes and using peppercorns for the centre.

We ended the day by playing a fun game as part of our emerging literacy programme where we had to identify if the sounds we heard were the same or different when Mrs Low ‘phoned’ us!

It is great to be back!

Successful term 1 for P3!

P3 have done so well this term to be healthy. They  won the snack ninja competition this term for the healthiest class at snack time. For this, the children won a well deserved trip to the park!

We have also been successful by all earning our bronze superhero award! The class decided to have a trip to the park if everyone received their bronze award before the October holidays. So we got extra time at the park!

Despite the rain, the children had a wonderful time! Well done P3. I’m so proud of you!

Fossils with P3 and P6/7

Last week P3 and the P6s from P6/7 worked together to make dinosaur fossils. The aim for P6 in this activity was to be responsible and help the P3 children. The aim for P3 was to listen to the older children and follow the instructions. Everyone worked together so well to create some brilliant fossils.

Well done!

RSPB visited P2

We had a great time looking at the biodiversity in our playground. We were learning about how the RSPB work to protect all habitats so that the birds living there will survive better. We had to work in teams of three to record all the mini beasts, flowers and trees and others animals that we found evidence of. E.g. We saw rabbit droppings but didn’t see a rabbit.
