We had a fantastic time this afternoon looking at old objects from the past. We had a homework task to speak to our grandparents/great grandparents or people we know, about what it was like for them growing up. It was so much fun talking to our loved ones and finding out things we did not know about them when they were little. Here are some of the things that people brought in.

We had an Atlas the was 114 years old, coins that were over 200 years old, an old fashioned doll, lots of pictures and other small objects such as watches and toys.

Thanks so much to all the parents, you are all amazing, the amount of information and time taken spent with your child was wonderful. the children really enjoyed learning and talking about all the things they had found out. Thanks again!!! Mrs Collier 032 027029030023019024031

Today we worked with our cooperative learning partner to share our learning stories. We are concentrating on 3 social skills in P1/2. These are:

- taking turns

- using quiet voices

- being a good listener

We love talking to each other about our work and it’s great to have a partner who is a good listener.

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.
