In preparation for the whole school running a mile as part of Health Month, P1/2 has started training once a week. 16 times round the playground is equal to a mile.

Incy Wincy Spider…

Not all spiders or black, brown or grey as we discovered this week! We learned that a spider is not an insect but an arachnid – it has two body parts (head-chest and abdomen), eight legs, up to eight eyes, fangs and spinnerets to make its silk web. We drew some beautiful webs using white chalk on black card then made colourful pom-pom spiders.

Eclipsed by the eclipse!

Thank you very much to Ed, Molly Macfarlane’s dad, who came in to talk to us about the eclipse which took place before our very eyes (which were protected by special eclipse glasses!) last Friday, 20th March. It was truly awesome to watch it unfold and to be aware of how it was affecting nature all around us. Thanks also to Meg, Molly’s mum, who did lots of the background organising. Then we had to follow all the excitement of the eclipse with our sharing assembly – what a morning!

World Book Day

What an amazing day for the whole school and the whole world!! It was World Book Day today and we had great fun doing lots of different reading activities with children from other classes as well as some mummies who came in to read to us. Thank you to all involved.

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!

Primary 1/2 had a very exciting afternoon on Monday. We had a visit from Buzzy Bee from Generation Science and she told us all about the wonderful world of bees. We learned that they have an amazing sense of sight and smell. When a bee finds a good source of nectar in a flower, it flies back to the other bees in its colony and does the ‘waggle dance’ then all the other bees follow it to feast on the nectar which they then turn into honey. Incredible!
