Primary 1A and Primary 1B Easter Egg Hunt

Primary 1A and Primary 1B had a fantastic time this morning searching for the Easter eggs hidden around the playground. A big thank you to Ashie House group for organising such a fun day for us all!

We made the most of the sunshine before lunchtime by going on a science hunt outside. We were able to identify lots of different materials such as wood, metal, plastic and rock.

We had a great time playing on the trim trail before we had our lunch.

Thank you for helping us to design and construct our castles during the Open Morning last week.  This week we have been covering them with paper mache to make them strong.  We will then paint them and send them home very soon.  We are proud of our engineering skills.  P1A 🙂

Primary 1A – What a Week!

We have had a fantastic week in primary 1A. As part of our Scotland topic we have been learning about Scottish Castles. For our open morning we invited Mums, Dads, Granny’s and Grandad’s to come and help us make our own castles out of junk modelling. The Dad’s were especially enthusiastic about this! A big thank you to everyone who came along to make the open morning really super!

 

Struan and Charlotte also did brilliantly by being part of the winning group that entered the design a red nose day competition!

Nathan was our star of the week this week as he has been working so hard to improve in his writing. His letter formation is lovely as a result and he has been trying hard to spell words on his own!

Well done Nathan – Keep up the good work!

Have a lovely weekend! – Miss Munro 🙂

Primary 1A – World Book Day

Our theme for World Book Day this year in Primary 1A was to celebrate being unique and how our differences make us special!

We read Elmer the Elephant and we talked about why Elmer might have wanted to be like all the other elephants and how they showed him that it was okay to be different and how it made him special!

We wrote about things that we thought made us special and unique and then we made our very own Elmer the Patchwork Quilt Elephants! They look fab! I will post the finished products tomorrow morning when they are all finished!

Primary 1A had some super outfits on today and it was lovely to see everyone sharing their favourite books!

Happy Thursday!

Miss Munro 🙂

 

Shrove Tuesday

Today in Primary 1 we talked about Shrove Tuesday being the beginning of the Christian festival of Lent. We talked about what type of things we could give up for lent and to celebrate we tried some yummy pancakes! Our bellies were very full by the end of the day!

Happy Pancake Day! 🙂

Attention All Parents!!

Important E-safety Information for Parents

It has become apparent in a number of classes across the school, that there has been a significant amount of discussion regarding the ‘Momo Challenge’.  As a school, we are keen to promote digital safety and encourage our pupils to stay safe whilst online, at both school and home, by making responsible choices.  This also encompasses our core values as a school and we therefore try to promote and encourage our pupils to share concerns and be responsible in their online usage.

Many parents/carers may already be fully aware from national media coverage that this is a challenge presented on certain social media outlets that many of our children use frequently.

We are always working hard to ensure online safety, and in light of current topics in the media we have attached some parent information as support below for you to peruse:

What Is the Dangerous Momo Challenge on Social Media? (Parent Video)

We hope you find all of this information useful in supporting your children and all our pupils and ultimately keeping them safe online.

World Thinking Day is celebrated on the birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the Scout and Guide Movement. It is a day for all Guides and Scouts to think of each other and to celebrate being part of an international movement.

Some of primary 1s decided to come along to Mrs Armstrong’s lunch time craft club today. We had a lovely time making tooth fairy pouches to put under our pillows for the tooth fairy! As it turns out a few of us have wobbly teeth so hopefully we will be able to put the pouches to good use soon!

Chinese New Year!

Primary 1A were learning all about Chinese New Year today. We noticed the similarities between Chinese New Year today and the new year we celebrated in January such as eating big meals with families and watching fireworks.

We talked about the Zodiac calendar and how Chinese New Year is celebrated. We read a story called Dragons in the City where we learned that families like to watch street festivals where people make big decorated dragons move around using long poles.

We had a go at making our own smaller versions of the dragons!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Primary 1 have all been working extra hard this week. Yesterday we listened to some poetry by Robert Burns and we wrote our very own invitations to a Burns Supper.

We also had a go at saying the Selkirk Grace that people like to say before they eat their haggis on Burns Night.

Some Folk hae meat that canna eat,

And some can eat that want it;

But we hae meat, and we can eat,

So let the Lord be Thanket!

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy your haggis this evening!

What an amazing job Primary 1! 🙂

Primary 1A – Week 1

 

Primary 1A have had a fantastic first week back at school!

I am so impressed with how hard they have all been working and how raring to go and full of beans they have all been since coming back to school on Monday.

I have loved having them all back in my classroom and it has been a joy to hear everything you have been getting up to over the Christmas break.

We have got a big and busy term ahead of us and we will be cramming lots of fun and exciting things in.

This we did a lot of talking about what we did in the holidays. We talked about Christmas day and we wrote thank you letters to Santa. We also talked about New Year and what that meant. To celebrate it being a new year we got very messy and made lovely new year fireworks using our hand prints!

We have also been making sure we still remember our phonics sounds from before the holidays so we played a game where we sorted lots of words into their initial sound group. I was so impressed with how well Primary 1 worked together to sound out each of the words. Very well done!

I hope you all have a lovely relaxed weekend and you do lots of things you love doing!

I will see you all bright eyed and bushy tailed on Monday morning!

 

Miss Munro 🙂

Well Done Tobi!
