Rise in Asthma Attacks

Did you know there is a rise in Asthma Attacks in August when pupils go back to school after their summer holidays?

Each year we see an increase in asthma attacks in children when they return to school which often result in admission to hospital. 

Check out our top tips to try and avoid this happening.

Remember, asthma attacks are serious and you need to get help day or night if your child is not responding to their blue inhaler.

Learning in P1a this week!

This week in Primary 1a we have been learning all about the 5 senses and how they help us explore the world around us. Everyone was really excited to share their learning with you on the blog.

We had 4 stations that we went round and it was really fun. They were:

  1. Smell: We had cups that had different smells in them such as lemon juice, coffee, vanilla and garlic. We couldn’t see in them and we had to guess what they were!
  2. Hearing: inside plastic eggs were objects like; bells, stones, rice and water and we had to work out which one was which.
  3. Sight: we had to put on a pair of goggles which had one eye covered! We had to try and write our name using the sight from just one eye!
  4. Touch: we had lots of different materials stuck to a big bit of paper and we had to feel them and describe what they felt like.

We are going to do taste in a couple of weeks time!

Here are some pictures:

Josh Kay also wrote a book at home called ‘What did the fox say?’. He read it to the class who all enjoyed it and found it funny. Here is a picture of Josh with his book, well done Josh!

More next week!
