Horse Chestnut Tree Health Check

This morning Primary 1 were fascinated watching the tree surgeons as they worked on our beautiful horse chestnut tree, making it safe and healthy.

Wonderful Wednesday!

Yesterday the morning nursery and Primary 1 worked together investigating symmetry. The children looked at symmetry in nature and created their own symmetrical patterns using a variety of materials. Well done boys and girls. Great effort!

Primary 1 Pupils Speak Mandarin!

This afternoon Primary 1 visited the Primary 2 classroom to meet Haina, a visiting teacher from China. Haina talked to the children about the Chinese culture and introduced the boys and girls to some Mandarin words and phrases. The children were very good at copying the correct pronunciation of the numbers one to ten in Mandarin! Well done everyone. “Xièxiè, Haina!” (See-ay, see-ay) “Thank you, Haina!”

Primary 1 Colour Mixing

This afternoon Andrea helped the children to explore colour by mixing yellow and blue to create different shades of green. Then the boys and girls took their paint palettes outside into the sunshine and painted pictures inspired by nature around them. Finally the children looked at each others art work and talked about their beautiful paintings. Many thanks to Andrea for giving us such a rich learning experience.

P.1 Orienteering

This morning Primary 1 had a go at orienteering led by our P.E. specialist, Mrs Robertson. The children worked with their Primary 7 buddies and tried hard to complete the challenges in the quickest times possible. Great effort boys and girls! Many thanks to our Primary 7 pupils for supporting the younger children so ably.
