On Tuesday (20th) primary 1A had their final forest school. Despite it being a bit more chilly this time around the P1s returned to school full of stories about the fun things they had been getting up to.
A big well done to all the P1s for their fantastic behaviour during forest school and always being well prepared and wrapped up warm.
Please remember next Tuesday is back to a normal school day so we wont need our snow suits! 🙂
As you will be aware we have started rehearsals for the P1 and P2 Nativity. A letter has gone home with the performance dates and you should return the slip requesting tickets as soon as possible. The P1s are angels and the P2s are shepherds and we would very much appreciate your help with the costumes. A letter has gone home detailing the items to bring in to school though please note for some of the P2 pupils (the main characters ) the school is providing their costumes. The children know who need to bring in costumes.
A letter for those wishing to have Christmas Lunch has also been sent home and the slip should be completed and returned to the school.
P3 “We’re Going On A Bear Hunt” – Yoga style!
Today we did some Cosmic Yoga. We followed the story “We’re going on a bear hunt” and used Yoga moves for the story. (We then had a quick blast of zumba – so lots of shaking P3 bodies!)
Today we were a bit unlucky with the weather, but it didn’t stop us from having fun! We enjoyed some lovely toasted bagels with jam and butter for snack, and some children even tried the bananas we cooked on the fire with chocolate inside, yummy! They are becoming more aware of the fire and how to stay safe around it, using new vocabulary such as “embers”, “smoke” and “sparks”. While exploring the woods, we came across a pair of gloves belonging to our friend in Primary One so we brought them back to school for her. Sarah also found a spider on the fallen tree that she “looked after carefully” when showing her friends.
We enjoyed a super afternoon with Mr Ian Soden as he shared information about energy use, why we need to make changes to our energy choices and the options we have with renewable energy.
He told us about the different projects his company (Dulas) get involved with and their developments with renewable technology e.g. solar panel fridge for vaccines.
The “Hydro” group won the prize for the quiz.
Thank you to Mr Soden for coming along and helping to remind us about our responsibilities to choose the right energy saving behaviours to help make good habits in our everyday life.
Well done Team Hydro.
This week we decorated melted snowmen biscuits with the residents. The children and residents took turns to make the icing and decorated their biscuit using marshmallows, breadsticks and smarties. Whilst tasting their finished product they enjoyed a hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows! The children are beginning to build friendships with some of the residents.
The children enjoyed their first visit to Ach an Eas Care Home. We spent time creating some leaf rubbings to show the residents. We also threw a tea party for one of the ladies who celebrated a very special birthday the week before. She turned a hundred and four years old! Keep your eyes peeled for more of our Ach an Eas adventures!
P3 Love Books!
We love reading lots of different books in P3 – especially if you have a cuddly toy to keep you company!
We have been finishing off our Renewable Energy topic with some activities from our Energy pack. We liked playing the floor game and then tried to see if there was enough solar and wind energy to power a buzzer and a light.
It is our turn for Litter Duty this week, We filled a few bags this afternoon, helping to improve our playing spaces and protecting wildlife.
