P1 2017-2018

Welcome to Primary 1’s blog!

Throughout the year we hope to share what we have been learning and enjoying in Primary 1. The children love it when you leave a comment about their work and experiences. You are welcome to do this at the bottom of the page.

Friday 22nd December

The highlight of our week has to be our Christmas Party! We played lots of party games, ate some yummy food and we even got a visit from SANTA!! Fun was had by all 🙂 P6 also came along on Tuesday and helped us to make some lovely Christmas cards.

Friday 15th December

We’ve had our Science hats on this week! We have been dissecting owl pellets with the help of P6. We were able to tell what the owls had been eating by identifying the bones we found! Some of us were a bit unsure at the start but we all had a turn and loved it!

Friday 8th December

Yesterday we had a visit from Owl magic! Davie brought lots of different owls to show us and it rounded off our IDEA of day and night very nicely.

We learned some more facts about owls and even got to hold them! We were really brave!!

Miss Herkes has been super impressed with our word building skills this week! We are using all the sounds we know to build CVC words. We need to think about what sound is at the start, middle and then the end! 🙂

Friday 27th October

It’s been a busy first week back after the holidays in Primary 1!

We had a visit from Catriona and Pamela who were teaching us some gymnastics skills. They will be with us for the next 5 Thursday’s. Today we were learning lots of different ways to balance! Have a look at our pictures. We had great fun 🙂

 

We’ve also been learning to add in maths and have been using the Numicon to help us. We’ve started our new IDEA ‘Day and Night’ and have had fun exploring the new Halloween areas in the classroom!

Friday 13th October

This week we had a visit from Stephanie who gave us a workshop on the story ‘Giraffe’s Can’t Dance.’ Gerald the Giraffe doesn’t think he can dance as his neck is too long and his legs are too skinny however after some good advice he manages to do it! We learned how to do the tango, cha cha and a waltz. We loved it!

We have been learning that we never give up and if there’s something that’s a little tricky, we keep trying!

Friday 6th October

This week we had a visit from Chris Ewing who gave us a Karate taster. We had a great time. Have a look at our pictures.
