Sowing seeds for the future
On Thursday, P1/2 and P2A went round the school and collected any seeds that had not been planted. Then we all went out to the allotment and planted them, so pupils have something to come back to when school opens again.
It was done fairly quickly, so our crops might be a bit mixed up. However, we all enjoyed being outside in the sun. We made sure to plant lots of sunflower seeds because we have always loved seeing these in the past. Lets keep our fingers crossed they grow!
Making Music with P1/2 and P2A
In the last 2 weeks, we have been exploring pitch and sound by making 5 simple musical instruments. We made chimes by using water in glass bottles, harps using baking trays and elastic bands, drums by stretching plastic bags over bowls, shakers with containers and rice and pan pipes using straws of different lengths.
In Primary 1/2 and Primary 2 we have been reading a selection of Elmer’s books.
We have recycled milk cartons and everybody has made their own Elmer – other elephants and Wilbur have also been made.
We worked together as a class to create two backdrops for our film set. Everyone then worked with their talk partners to film and retell a story of Elmer using the iPads.
