Under the Sea Exhibition

Today in school, P1 hosted their 'Under the Sea' Exhibition. Each child in the class created their own 'Under the Sea' piece of art for the exhibiton. We are totally blown away with the amount of time and effort that has been spent making each piece unique and 'seatacular'!! Thank you to everyone for all your hard work. P1, you are all Superstars!!

We're going on a Bear Hunt 

Over the past few weeks in P1, we have been reading the story, 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen. We have been enjoying completing a wide range of activities based on the story. Today we recieved a letter from the Bear, who wanted to play, 'Hide and Seek' with P1. We followed the clues he left  and went on a Bear Hunt to see if we could find him. We couldn't believe our eyes when we found him, having lots of fun in our Outdoor area. We weren't scared!! 


Amazing Measures 

In numeracy, we have been looking at Measures. We have been exploring weight, length and capacity. The children have enjoyed experimenting with and measuring various items from around our classroom. P1 are amazing at measuring and had lots of fun!! 


Brilliant Balancing in Primary 1!! 

In P.E, we have been completing Gymnastics. Our focus this term has been, Balance. The children have been learning to Balance on Points and Patches. They have been brilliant!! Have a look at some of our amazing balances. 

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Over the past few days in Primary 1, we have been exploring and observing the season, Winter. We are identifying changes in our weather, our outdoor area and learning about animals we see at this time of the year. We are enjoying wrapping up warm and observing the signs of Winter outdoors...we couldn't believe it when we woke up to some snow!!
