This week P1 have started learning about hot and cold- we discovered how penguins keep warm in the Antarctic and how Polar bears break through ice! We learned what a thermometer does and discussed how to stay warm in the cold. We investigated how water changes shape depending on its container.
We have started learning how to make our capital letters and are using them in sentences.
P2B and P2R
Primary 2s have had another busy week. We are really enjoying our new Katie Morag topic. This week we have been talking about Katie Morag’s family tree and starting to think about our own family trees and how they are all unique. We have also made some lovely pieces of tartan in P2R. P2B have made some beautiful landscape pictures this week during their artwork time.
Both classes have been exploring measure in more depth. Looking at units for measurement and when and why it is appropriate to measure with different units. In our Big Writing this week, we have been focusing on re-telling the story of Little Red Riding Hood in our own words. We are trying to use some WOW words in our stories to make them even more exciting.
In P3 we have been finding out about coordinates. We have learned how to use horizontal and vertical axis to locate and draw objects on a grid and we enjoyed making and playing coordinates games using grid references with each other.
We have planned our new theme together (Scotland) and have started finding out about Scotland’s culture, traditions and language.
This week we have had fun learning about Parkour free running in PE. ‘I enjoyed the running and climbing on the climbing frame’ (Stanley). ‘I really liked the course that we do.’ (Daisy) ‘It was hard to jump over the green box’. (Dillon).
We went on a symmetry hunt as part of our outdoor work. We found lots of symmetrical patterns around the village on houses, gates, garages and also natural items such as leaves.
We have started learning all about Hindusim and we have listened to the creation story, it was amazing! We have been working with money – and some people were shocked to find out how much things actually cost!
We had an exciting week meeting our nursery buddies, we went over and had a great outside play session with them. In maths we have been learning how to calculate a percentage of an amount. For our topic work we have started learning about old Edinburgh and are recreating the royal mile in our classroom.
Primary 7 started their health and wellbeing topic this week looking at healthy eating. We looked into different food groups and the benefits they have on the body. Next week we will be making a food diary for famous athletes.
