The nursery and P1 have been celebrating Chinese New Year. They listened to the story of the first new year and talked about how they like to celebrate special days. The children made their own Chinese dragon. They performed a dragon dance inspired by the poem ‘Chinese New Year Dragon’ and thentasted some noodles and crackers, using chop sticks.
Primary 1 And The Nursery Had A Very Busy And Exciting Morning Solving Problems With Martyn Pegg, An Outdoor Education Teacher. The Children Had To Work In Teams, Communicating With Each Other And Trying Out Ideas. They Also Took Part In A “Treasure Hunt” In The Senses Garden. Despite The Wet Weather, A Great Time Was Had By All!!!!
Primary 1/2 have been studying a topic on Plants. They became plant detectives this week. The challenge was to look around the grounds of the school and find three different types of stems. They took magnifying glasses and clipboards to help them to become real scientists!
When they were back in the classroom, the children conducted an experiment to investigate stems. They used food colouring to dye some water red, and then they put a celery stick into it. They made predictions about what would happen and wrote up a short report of their findings.
