Today Primary 1 & Primary 2 worked together to create a new house for The Three Little Pigs. They had to make sure that they worked as a team, their house could stand up by itself and was strong enough not to be blown down by the Big Bad Wolf.
The children have started to read about Lila, a little Hare who learns about what happens when you break the rules or make a mistake. It encourages the children to think about people they can trust and talk to, and how this is important.
Meet our new safety superhero, Safe Suzie.
The children enjoyed making up a name for our character and designing her outfit.
Suzie will be encouraging us to learn about ways to keep safe in the ECC, out and about and in the home.
Julie and Leoni have been encouraging the children to be independent at snack and introduce these skills to our new starts.
P3/4 and P4/5 joined up for a fun-filled morning of play on Friday. The children chose a range of activities including Twister, construction, basketball, gymnastics, art and football to name a few. Everyone had a great time marking the longest day of the year.
P2/3 enjoyed our discussion with engineer George Burns about the environment and what we can do to protect it. Afterwards, we decided to head outside to explore our playground environment and made lists of the living and non-living things we found.
Take a look!
P2/3 have been learning all about the human body. This week we focussed on the heart, its functions and how to keep it healthy.
We were lucky enough to have Mrs Watt come along and demonstrate Heartstart CPR. We learned about what to do in an emergency situation and even got a chance to practise on the dummies. Take a look!
Well done to all of the P6 and P7 pupils who competed in the East Ayrshire Netball Festival at Cumnock Academy today. The pupils worked very well together as a team and had great fun playing against other schools. They won 4 games, lost 3 and came in 5th place overall. Great effort everyone!
We have had a super week in Primary 3/4. In Maths we have started learning about multiplication. We have been exploring array patterns and multiplication on a number line. We have been completing lots of different activities in Active Literacy. Ellis’s group were searching for nouns and she managed to find almost 50 in her book. In Health and Wellbeing we have been learning about ways to keep ourselves healthy. Aimee, Ellis and Lexie had their work chosen for the “Good Work Wall” this week. Well done, girls!
Health week is looking to be an exciting and fun three days. The children of the Health committee have worked hard on organising all the activities, so I look to the parents now to give as much support as you can. We have a guest speaker coming in on Wednesday the 6th of June at 3:15pm and I am calling on all parents who can attend to come along and support the Health committee and school. It won’t be for too long and should give an interesting insight into what other agencies do to support Health and Well Being in schools. There will also be a fun, family sport session on Thursday the 7th of June 3:15pm-4:15pm, so I hope to see many of you at that also.
The children should wear active/sports wear on these three days and are encouraged to bring water and a healthy snack, which they will receive extra house points for. There will also be many other people coming in to support the week and fun competitions for the pupils to take part in.
I am very lucky to be joining the P7’s at Dolphin House this week but if there are any questions, don’t hesitate to contact the school and I will do my best to keep in contact.
