My Body

We have a new challenge in Primary 1 – to make a fact book all about “My Body.” We need to include facts about our bodies, our skeleton, our organs, our senses and the measurements of our bodies.

This week, we have been finding out about diagrams. They are pictures that give information. A diagram has a picture, labels and arrows pointing to the picture.

We made diagrams about our bodies. First, we had fun singing and doing the actions to a song about our bodies…

Then we made labels to match the pictures. We used arrows to point to the correct part of the picture.

We can look at a picture of the word “bed.” The letters actually make the shape of a bed. We know the first sound in “bed” is “b” so that is the first letter shape. We know that the last sound in the word “bed” is “d” so that is the last letter shape.


We can also make a bed shape with our hands. Our first thumb makes the “b” shape and our other thumb makes the “d” shape. Handy when you want to do a quick check as you’re writing or reading!

It is World Book Day on Thursday, 5th March.
Just a quick reminder that the children have been invited to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. Primary 1 children are also going to be working with their Nursery Buddies on Thursday, so could they also bring in their favourite book to share? Don’t forget to put names on books!

Our much anticipated Primary 1 and 1/2 Ceilidh will be taking place on Monday 9th March at 1:30 – 2:50. It would be great to see you there if you can make it! The children can come to school dressed in anything tartan – from full kilt or tartan hair ribbon! We have made tartan rosettes, so everyone will have something to wear on the day.
Make sure you wear footwear suitable for dancing – audience participation required!
