Our new Little Owls all agree that the first three days of Primary 1 have been a huge success! With some help from their Primary 7 buddies, the children have settled very quickly and are already able to demonstrate our three class rules -“ready”, “respectful” and “safe”! Fantastic teamwork boys and girls!
This morning the nursery boys and girls visited their new Primary 1 classroom. The children looked comfortable and enjoyed being Little Owls for the very first time. They were good listeners and gave their best effort with their black pen drawings of themselves. The children enjoyed exploring the areas too and at the end of the visit they sang some of their favourite songs. Everyone agreed that Primary 1 is going to be fun! Fantastic effort boys and girls!
This morning Buddy Bear returned to see the Nursery, Primary 1 and Primary 2. He was delighted to hear about all the acts of kindness that the children have been doing since his first visit and he enjoyed reading the boys’ and girls’ reports in the Buddy Bear journals. Buddy Bear’s team talked to the children about having daily “Thankful Moments” and how these can help us feel happy and well. Each class was presented with a cape and mask which the children can share during circle times. Many thanks to Buddy Bear and his team for all the wise advice about being kind and for the super resources that each class received.
Primary 1 and Primary 2 spent the morning together at Aberlady Bay exploring the mudflats, salt marshes and tide line. The children also enjoyed doing observational drawings of nature around them. Many thanks to John Harrison once again for planning and preparing such inspiring activities for the children. Many thanks also to all our parent helpers who helped to make the morning run so smoothly.
This morning Primary 1 and Primary 7 visited the SOC to see the exhibition of art work, stories and poems which the Aberlady pupils created last term to celebrate Gala Week. The children were delighted to see their work on display! Many thanks to the SOC and to our talented parents who organised this quality learning experience for the children.
This morning Primary 1 went outside to conduct a traffic survey as part of their maths lesson on information handling. The children were very good at recording the vehicles that passed by on their tally charts. It was quite tricky at times to count because the road was so busy! The boys and girls realise how important it is to follow the road safety rules especially with all the building work that is going on so close to the school. Great effort everyone!
