Scots Focus Month in P1b
We had a ‘braw’ time learning lots of new things during our Scots Focus Month.We listened to lots of wonderful stories, sang Scottish songs and also did some Scottish dancing.
Tartan kilts and hairy knees
As part of our Scots focus for the month of January P1a made these braw kilts!
Since returning from the holidays Primary 1 have been enjoying outdoor play with some of our new equipment. There has been some super imaginative play and great vocabulary being used.
Here are some photos of P1a during our recent trip to Dynamic Earth.
Scottish Book Week
Scottish Book week started on Monday 19th November. Primary 1 really enjoyed reading lots of books. Our favourite was ‘Eric makes a splash’ by Emily MacKenzie.
P1 did lots of activities linked to the book. Eric was very worried about lots of things but his special friend always helped him by offering a solution. In our ‘Talking Partners’ we discussed our own worries and then our partner gave us ideas on how to worry less. We enjoyed designing our own swimming costumes for Eric and making Panda masks.
We re-told the story in our own words and enjoyed sharing our favourite parts of the book. P1 drew their own pictures and created a class book with their fabulous illustrations.
At the end of the week the children shared their work with their parents and we were also given our ‘Book Bug’ bags which had three lovely books and other goodies.
