This afternoon Grandad Chambers visited Primary 1 and talked about his memories of being five years old. The children were able to use the information to compare life then and now. Grandad was pleased to hear that even although we have computers now we still love books! Many thanks to Grandad for helping us to understand more about the past.
This morning Granny Black visited Primary 1 and helped us with our topic all about “then and now”. The children wanted to find out about what life was like when Granny was five years old. They asked Granny lots of questions and were very keen to show her our “Aberlady Museum”. Many thanks to Granny for helping us to become more aware about the past and how things have changed.
This morning Primary 1 took part in a CPR workshop. The children learned about the steps they should take in an emergency situation and had a go at performing CPR on their teddies. Many thanks to our medical experts who showed us that you don’t need to be a superhero to help save a life. Just be yourself.
This afternoon Primary 1 and 2 visited Aberlady Parish Church to have a closer look at the beautiful display of poppies. Mrs I’Anson and Mrs Langan-Fortune, both from the Aberlady Craft Club, met us there and told us all about the poppies and the work that had gone into the project. It was fascinating to find out that so many people from far and wide had contributed to the making of the poppies. The children were delighted to see the display and very happy that they had helped too. The church looks truly stunning.
This week the morning nursery class and Primary 1 enjoyed their first Wonderful Wednesday of the year. The children took part in a variety of games and activities with the focus on 2D shapes and 3D objects. Each group also went on a detective hunt around the school looking for 2D shapes. They used 3D objects to print with and discovered which flat shapes they could make with them. Both year groups worked very well together. Great effort boys and girls!
