This morning we were looking at Alex ‘Tattie’ Marshalls commonwealth GOLD medals. He had 2 from Glasgow 2014. We asked him about how he got his nickname. He told us it was because people think he eats lots of crisps, potatoes and chips.

It was great to meet someone who was so good at their sport. He told us to be a champ you need to keep practising!!

Today we were writing a story about a Policeman…. and luckily enough one popped in to visit. PC Paterson stopped by to show us his uniform and tell us all about his job as a policeman. He told us that he very rarely has to chase robbers but spends his days helping people and making sure everyone feels safe.


He let us all have a shot of his hat and jacket. We even got to look at his handcuffs and baton. He told us he has, so far, never needed to use his baton ….. and he hopes it stays that way!

Today Chris came to show us some of the basics of Karate. We had lots of fun practising punches and kicks. We learned that you only do these with a trained instructor and not at home or out in the playground. Leaflets are in our message bags with all the times and venues for Chris’ beginners class.

We have had a super time settling in to our new class this week. Mrs Paterson and Mrs Collier have been so proud of all of our fab attitudes. The P2′s have been great! They have really welcomed all the P1′s and have been such great role models.

Looking forward to full days next week P1′s!

Today Pamela came to tell us all about GERMS! She put some fake germs on a banana and asked Grace to hold it. Then Grace went around and shook all of our hands. When we looked at our hands under Pamela’s special light we ALL had the germs on our hands.

Pamela then showed us how to wash our hands really well. She said you need to wash them for 30 seconds and an easy way to know how long this is would be to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ twice while we wash.

When we came back and checked our hands again most of them germs were gone but some little sneaky ones still hid under our nails and in between our fingers.
