Healthy Eating Challenge

Thanks to everyone that took part in our Healthy Eating Challenge for the last 5 weeks. We were really impressed by the amount of fruit that everyone brought in and all the different kinds of fruit that children came to school with.

The winning class was Primary 1C who brought in the most healthy snacks over the 5 weeks. Primary 5A came in second place and Primary 2B came in third, great work and well done.

Chinese New Year in P2B

Today the class were learning about the celebrations and customs of Chinese New Year. We discussed the many symbols associated with this day such as Chinese dragons, lanterns and red money pockets and learned how the date of Chinese New Year depends on the moons. Afterwards we made night sky drawings with paint fingerprint lanterns and the results were very effective. We also made cards to celebrate the year of the Monkey.. Great job P2B!   
   

Breakfast Week

As part of Breakfast Week we have been encouraging the children to eat a healthy breakfast. 

 
We have been sharing recipes with nursery as well as making our own scones and smoothies. 

   
They all enjoyed making their own breakfast as well as trying frozen banana cups and flapjacks that the nursery made for us. 

We look forward to sharing more recipes with nursery soon!

P6B met a snake!

P6B had a fantastic time this morning meeting Taz the corn snake. Mr Cooper, our current janitor kindly brought in his 3 month old pet. Some of the class chose to hold Taz and were amazed at how soft he was and how tickly it was to hold him.
