Today p1a and Miss Read took part in a Karate taster session put on by one of our local clubs. Chris and his dad Dave showed us some fantastic moves and we even learned some of the words.
We had so much fun! Each child took home a leaflet to join the club and have an Active Schools sign up sheet in their bags from yesterday. The first four classes are free! Miss Read can confirm that EVERYONE in p1a thoroughly enjoyed themselves when trying out Karate.
Great work everyone and thank you so much to Chris and Dave!
P1 were lucky enough to be invited to Moredun library to meet author Pauline Tait! She read us her new book ‘The Fairy in the Kettle’, answered questions we had and told us how the illustrator drew the fairies!
We even got bookmarks to take home!
P1A have been learning about nocturnal animals. We made these beautiful fox pictures using lots of different materials.
Here are some facts about foxes:
Foxes eat worms – Margot
Foxes dig under the snow to find little mice – Maisie
Foxes sleep in the morning – Connor
They make screeching noises – Catriona
Foxes go through the rubbish – Noor.
P1A are thoroughly enjoying their new topic Day and Night. Today we made Night pictures that showed a street in the dark. We had a great discussion of what we can see out our windows at night.
We combined our learning from last block and used 2D shapes when making our pictures. We needed rectangles, squares, a circle and stars to make our beautiful artwork. Excellent work everyone!
