P1/2 decided to have a creative afternoon today! We combined what we had learned about Recycling and 3D shapes with our topic, My Local Community. Using recycled materials gathered by staff and parents, we created models of our own homes. We decorated these with scrap paper.
It was really good to see everyone having fun creating their model! Great work everyone!
Anyone working in the Lower Wing this afternoon needn’t worry! Miss Read has not decided to open a barnyard in her classroom – today we were learning about wool!
P1/2 linked their science topic with our Word Boost book: Katie Morag and the Two Grandmothers. After learning about where wool comes from and talking about things we can make from wool, p1/2 decided to make their very own sheep masks!
Don’t worry parents/guardians – this activity took place AFTER our photographs……it turned out to be quite a messy lesson!
P1/2 and P3/4 are thoroughly enjoying their buddy time together!
We’ve read a really exciting Katie Morag book all about her delivering letters across the island.
Last Friday a real life ‘Katie’ in the form of Christina arrived with her very soggy bag! Unfortunately the sentences inside each of the letters were all muddled up. Luckily the children were able to work in groups to put the sentences back together again. They then drew pictures of the sentence on the envelope.
