We had a surprise treat this afternoon- the ice cream van! We had the best time!!
Trip to Greenmount- we had the best day. We arrived early to a sunny campus and had our snack before the work started! We did some pond dipping and found tadpoles in groups, some even had their back legs. We then explored the gardens, poly tunnel, formal gardens and had a go at going around the big maze, our teachers got us lost 🤣
Golden Behaviour- well done to this boy who always says please and thank you in the classroom. Such lovely manners!
Independence Award- well done to this happy girl who has worked very hard to receive this today!!
Independence Awards- we have three more boys receiving their certificate today. Brilliant work!!
Outdoor Classroom Day- we enjoyed learning outdoors today in the sunshine! We read The Foggy Foggy Forest. We then had to find characters that were hidden in the outdoor classroom and match them to items on our page. For example, the porridge matched the three bears. We then stayed outside to enjoy our usual Welly Wednesday!
A massive well done to P1 this morning, they took their very own class assembly in front of the whole school and their families. We shared information about our topic 'Off we go' and showed off our amazing art work. An extra thank you to Mr Kennedy who made our Landrover Defender for us, we can't wait to use it for our role play area soon!!
We had our first of many 'Welly Wednesday's' today!! We had a great time practising and learning new skills. We made homes for our dinosaurs using twigs and bark, we used construction vehicles to move bark to different areas, we played well with others through a range of games, we practised our gross motor skills on bikes and scooters. Overall the children thought today was a success and we have requests for different resources for next time 😊
We had a lovely day with our friends from Millquarter working hard on our Numeracy. We practised lots of different skills through a Numeracy trail, giving us clues and led us to treasure!!
We are working hard learning through play this week. We chose some of our own activities such as dinosaurs and small world farm, we have also came up with other ideas for play later in the week. 😊
We had a lovely time with our friends from Millquarter. We heard the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk' before working with our Millquarter partner to plant our very own seeds. We also were very lucky to plant some more flowers in the outdoor area with a visitor called Charlie. When we came back to school, we completed a piece of writing to share what we have been up to for display, what a busy day!!
Let's get Growing! We are really enjoying our topic so far. We are learning a lot through Play Based Learning.

Safer Internet Day 2019- we heard the story of Digiduck's Big decision. This story taught us to be careful what we say on the internet as it can hurt others. We thought of positive captions for some photos from the party in the story. We are very kind and sensible in P1!!
Well done to some more of our Primary 1 pupils who received their Independence Award this morning! We are so proud of you!!

We wore spots for 'Children In Need'.
Cancer Focus- we had a visit today from Genevieve the Goat and Eimear from Cancer Focus. They came to talk to us about keeping healthy and fit. We heard the story of Genevieve and the Farmyard Olympics which we loved! We have to remember to eat 5 fruit or vegetables a day, drink milk or water and exercise.
Twinkle Twinkle- we started our new topic this term. You will find an info sheet in your child's homework pack. The children really enjoyed Play Based Learning today where there were lots of topic based activities. A Role Play bedroom at night, digging for vegetables in the sand tray, cutting out night time items to stick on our moon worksheet, splat painting and constructing animal shelters for the farm at night time. Phew! What a busy start to our new term.
