Optician Visits Primary 1

This morning Clare Downes visited Primary 1 to tell the class about her work as an optician. She talked about how our eyes grow and change and she gave the children advice on how to look after them. The children learned about different types of food which help to keep our eyes healthy and they enjoyed tasting some of them! Then Clare visited our own “Aberlady Optician” and played some colour vision games with the boys and girls. Many thanks to Clare and her very responsible assistant for helping us with our learning.

Ready, Teddy, Go!

This afternoon Primary 1 were very busy being scientists at a Generation Science workshop called “Ready, Teddy, Go!” The children learned lots about forces and carried out experiments involving pushing, pulling, gravity, floating and sinking. They were able to predict what might happen and then test their ideas to find out if they were correct. Many thanks to our science experts, Jo and Aleysha, not forgetting Isaac and Newton who helped to make the workshop full of fun!

“Whit the Clockleddy Heard!”

Primary 1 have been learning Scots this week! They prepared and dramatised a Scots version of “What the Ladybird Heard” by Julia Donaldson and performed it at the whole school Scottish assembly this morning. The audience were able to follow the plot of the story and answer questions at the end about Scots words that they had learned. Everyone agreed it was “braw” fun!
