Archie Visits P1/2 and P2A

Primary 1/2 and Primary 2a were very excited to receive a special visitor this week!

We learned all about Archie’s job as a therapy pet visiting children in schools and people living in care homes.

We also learned about how important it is to ask an owner before stroking a strange dog, and how to approach a dog without making them nervous. We asked lots of interesting questions and had lots of fun!

 


Visit to Edinburgh Castle

On Thursday 31st May P1 /2 and P2 went to Edinburgh Castle. It was really busy with lots of tourists. We were able to get round the castle and see most of the important parts.


Robin Hood and Castles
[Blog Post by Harris and Sammy]

We were making our own Robin Hoods. We were also drawing and cutting out castles.


Robin Hood Needs A New Castle!

At the start of the Summer term, P1/2 and P2A went for a walk in the woods to look for signs of Spring…

Suddenly a man appeared from behind a tree. It was Robin Hood!

He started by telling them all about losing his castle to Guy of Gisbourne. The classes agreed to help Robin by finding out all about castles. They also learned how to make a bow by tying some string to a bendy stick. The next step is to find out how to attack and defend a castle.


It’s Electrifying!

At the end of March we had some visitors from General Electric. They came to talk to us about electric circuits. They showed us how to make a circuit using play doh,a battery ,a light bulb and some wire. We all got to have a try to make the light bulb work.


RSPB – ‘Giving Nature A Home’

On Wednesday 7 March, P1/2, P2A and P5A had a visit from the RSPB. We we learning all about the habitats that animals need to survive. We looked at the different areas in our playground and found lots of places that would provide great habitats for birds, insects and small animals. Check out our pictures below to see what we were up to!

Primary 6 meet Primary 2!

At the end of December, P2 and P6 got together to have fun playing board games. They had the chance to play lots of different board games and card games. It was sometimes hard to work out who was teaching who!


Tesco Trip

Last week all of P1 and P2 had a visit to Tesco to find out how our food gets to the shop. On Thursday afternoon it was the tun of P1/2. It was quite a long walk and we had lots of roads to cross. Luckily we had just watched a Magic Road Safety show so we were able to make sure we could cross the roads safely by remembering to Think,Stop, Look and Listen.

When we got the store we went to the back of the shop and saw where all the food was stored in the big storerooms and fridges. We also saw the loading bay where the lorries delivered the food for the whole store. At the end of the tour we got to sample some of the produce.


Feeding The Birds

P1/2 will be going out each week to feed the birds in the allotment. Mr Millar has built a fantastic new bird table next to the Hyde. Over the next few weeks we hope see the birds enjoying the seeds.


P1/2 Learning About Skeletons!

This week we have been finding out about the bones in our bodies. We listened to the Funnybones stories and we used straws to make our own skeletons. We also went into the woods to collect sticks and with a partner we made big skeletons with these sticks.


P1/2 At The Library!

Today we went to our local library. We had to be careful to cross the roads safely. At the library we met a lady called Shirley. She told us about the books and how we can borrow them. She read the story –  Shark in the Park. Everyone got to choose a book to bring back to school. We got back to school  just in time for lunch!
