For the last few weeks Primary 1 have been looking after our caterpillars. Over this time we have them grow very large after munching on lots of food and we got to see them make their chrysalis. Over the weekend our caterpillars emerged as butterflies. After a lovely few days getting to watch them and making sure we fed them lots of lovely fruit we set our butterflies free in the secret garden. It was amazing to see them spread their wings and fly up into the sky!
What a lovely way to end an absolutely fantastic year in Primary 1A. Thank you for all your hard work and we wish you a lovely holiday and all the best going into Primary 2!
Over the past 4 weeks we have had a Friday focus on outdoor learning and Primary have absolutely loved it! We have reading and listening to stories outside. We explored the secret garden and tried to find things using our five senses. We were outdoor detectives as we went on bug hunt where we made friends with Sammy the Snail. We also used chunky chalk to practise our reading words out on the playground before finishing with a bubble party!
We have loved using the outdoors to help us learn new things and we can’t wait to keep exploring when we return after the summer holidays!
The Primary 7 pupils would like to invite their P1 buddies to a Teddy Bears’ Picnic on Monday 1st July. P7 pupils will be bringing in their teddies and their favourite book to share, along with some juice and biscuits as part of the picnic. It would be great if all the P1 pupils could please take in their own teddy bears and one of their favourite story books on Monday too!
Let’s hope the sun will shine!
On Friday we began a four week block with a focus on outdoor learning! Primary 1A and Primary 1B took to the garden where we went on a senses scavenger hunt. We had to hunt for things that felt smooth, things that had a nice smell, and things of different colours and shapes. We had a lovely time and we were even able to find a giant snail, which we have named Sammy! We took Sammy into the classroom in our magnifier so we could have a good look at him before setting him free.
We are looking forward to getting back outdoors this Friday too!
Izzy is our primary 1A star of the week! Izzy is so enthusiastic in lessons and she acts as a fantastic roll model for all her peers. She always tries her very best and is extremely caring towards all of her friends.
Last week Adam was our Star of the week! Adam has been working really hard to improve his understanding in adding and takeaway sums. On top of this Adam was incredibly supportive of all his fellow classmates during our sports day on Friday. He was full of encouragement for everyone who took part which was lovely to see and he made everyone feel like they had done their very best.
Primary 1A Star of the Week this week is Selena! Selena has been awarded star of the week because she has been working very hard on her confidence and skills when speaking aloud in front of others. Selena has grown to become a valued member of group work and she is confident when sharing her ideas with her friends!
Well done Selena!
