This morning the nursery children visited Primary 1 and the two classes worked together exploring “measure”. First the boys and girls discussed the story of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” and then they took part in measuring activities including length, volume and capacity. The children gave their best effort and had lots of fun. Great teamwork, everyone!
Primary 1 has been given the very important job of making 3D hanging birds for the gala. The birds will be photographed for the gala programme and exhibited during gala week. This morning the children took part in the first of two workshops. They found out about different types of birds that can be seen around Aberlady Bay. Then they looked at the work of some famous artists to get inspiration for designing their own birds. The boys and girls enjoyed having a go at various techniques including lino printing, mono printing and wax resist water colour painting. Many thanks to Kate, Andrea, Pam and Cheryl for organising the project.
This afternoon Primary 1 continued their outdoor P.E. activities by pairing up with their Primary 7 buddies to have a go at orienteering. The older pupils were very good at showing the P.1 children how to follow the routes on the maps. Great teamwork everyone!
This morning Primary 1 had fun with our P.E. specialist, Mrs Robertson, playing the “Snowman Game”. The children were very focussed and worked well in their teams to build a snowman as fast as they could! Great effort, Primary 1!
The boys and girls in Primary 1 and Primary 2 have been working very hard over the past three weeks putting together a nativity show for their families, friends and the local community. This afternoon the children tried on their costumes in preparation for the dress rehearsal tomorrow morning in the church. They are hoping everyone enjoys their performance. Have fun boys and girls. You’re lookin’ good. Yee ha!
This morning Primary 1 visited the Scottish National Gallery. The children looked very carefully at the detail in some of the wonderful paintings and they were able to talk about what they could see. They enjoyed making their own drawings inspired by the works of art on display. Great effort boys and girls! Many thanks to our two helpers whose support was very much appreciated.
