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.

Today we have been outdoors doing PE. All the pupils in P1/2 worked great in their team games and had lots of fun jumping, running races and working together to make a jigsaw, in the animal jigsaw race. Well Done class!

The Gruffalo

We used play dough to make wings for the owl and a face for the fox, we used the makes to act out the story, we used puppets to put on a gruffalo show, we even took over the house corner with characters from the gruffalo….. but we ended up enjoying just playing house.

It’s an early night all round tonight before the P2′s come back from their summer holidays and the P1′s have their very first day at school! It’s also an early night for me as it’s my first day back too after a whole year off. I hope that you are all as excited as me and we can help each other to settle in ……


See you tomorrow!!

This week we have been looking at wind and how although we cannot see it (its invisible!) we can see the impact of wind on lots of things around us. To help us see wind we made some windmills using paper, straws and James the janitor helped us nail them together with some wood to help keep them strong! Here are some pictures of us outside testing them out!

Little scientists doing their research!

Today we were little scientists and we used books to help us research our topic of weather! We all wrote down interesting facts that we found in the books and even called down to England to see if the weather really was different there compared to Scotland like one of our books said!

Here are a few of our facts and pictures!

Abigail – “rain is lots of drops of water joined together in a cloud”

Arran – “some lightning strikes many places at once”

Avalon – “Frost and ice are frozen water”

Darcey – “clouds are made of tiny drops of water”

Faith – “the sun is bigger than the Earth”

Grace – “a very long time of hot weather is called a heatwave”

Harris – “Tornadoes are made of spinning wind”

Jamie – “snow is frozen rain”

Kelvin – “hurricanes can knock down houses”

Mason – “tornadoes look like dark spinning clouds of wind”

Max – “the sun gives us heat”

Matthew – “you cannot see thunder”

Oliver – “the sun goes away in a different country”

Sara – “the sun is bigger than the world”

We have all been enjoying spending part of our Wednesday morning learning how to walk safely on roads and all about how to cross the road safely. However, the children have all agreed that today was the best session as it ended up with a quick play in the park as a reward! A humongous thank you to all our super helpers and we hope the sun will be shining like it was today next week!
