This week in P3/4M

This week was super exciting because we had our school disco! It was amazing! There were lots of songs and there was a photobooth! We are already excited for the next one.

This Week In P1S…

After a long weekend, P1S returned to school ready to face our last few weeks of Primary 1 (who can believe it is June already) full of energy and enthusiasm. Let us tell you what we have been doing and learning this week…

We have been very excited this week to begin creating our crafts for the Summer Fayre. We have begun creating magnets for fridges, radiators or dish washers using Hama Beads. We have tried to make our magnets using our knowledge of pattern. Hama Beads are quite tricky as they are so small and fiddly so we are practising our patience and perseverance to complete them!

We have been learning about why and how to phone 999. We know that we only phone in an emergency and have been acting out different emergencies in our house corner. We have learned all the different emergency vehicles that emergency services can drive and arrive in and enjoyed creating our own versions from Lego.
