A chilly start to the term...
*
This term Primary 1/2 have been learning all about winter. What a busy few months we have had! We have made our own igloos, painted ice, created winter scenes using cold colours, carried out experiments and even made our own snow using baking soda and conditioner.

We also made ice decorations using leaves and twigs and then hung them up in our garden. We all made predications about what would happen to our decorations the next day. Some of us thought it would melt a little bit, some thought it wouldn't melt at all and some of us thought it would completely melt away once the sun came out. Unfortunately, when we returned the next day only the string was left from our decorations.

In Literacy, we are continuing to learn our phonics, we have followed instructions to make a snowman and we have been writing our own instructions to explain to others how to make their very own ice decoration.

In Numeracy, we have been practicing our numbers before and after and learning all about time. Miss Dunlop is very impressed with the different times we can show on our clocks.

On top of all our hard work, we just had to go out and enjoy catching snowflakes when it started to snow in our playground.

Hard working Primary 1s and 2s...
*
What a busy first term the Primary 1 and 2s have had! The Primary 1s have settled in brilliantly and the Primary 2s enjoyed showing them around.

Our topic this term is All About Me. We have enjoyed finding out about each other during Circle Time and learning about our differences. We discussed our features and used mirrors to make self-portraits.

We are having great fun in our playroom. We enjoy making dinner, ironing and looking after the baby in the home corner - we even had to get our class builders to come and fix our washing machine! Some of us have made excellent houses from junk materials.

We are also learning how to be a good listener. To help improve our listening skills we went on a sound walk around the school with our listening ears. Miss Dunlop is very impressed with the Primary 1's listening skills already!

In Numeracy we are learning about patterns. We can copy patterns with 2 and 3 different colours and can make up our own patterns. We are also practising our numbers 1 to 10.

In Literacy we have been learning different rhymes, our phonic sounds and sequencing stories.

Here are some photos from our Learning Through Play, our weekly IFA sessions and our Numeracy work.
