This week P2 worked with local engineer George Burns to continue learning about the weather. We recycled some plastic water bottles and made our own ‘Rain Gauges’. We will be using them to measure the rainfall over the coming weeks and will record our findings in a bar chart!
As part of their continued work on improving school grounds and outdoor learning, Primary 7 will be involved in working in the school garden tomorrow. All pupils should come to school wearing suitable clothing for the weather – warm jacket, trousers/trackies, wellies/boots. Basically clothes that can get dirty! Pupils should also bring a change of clothing that they can change into when they come back into class.
Some of our parents joined us for a Stay and Play session in our outdoor learning area. They had great fun trying out our resources, found lots of bugs and were able to see how their children learn through play. Thanks to everyone who managed to join us.
The children have been learning about road safety.
“You have to stop, look and listen before you cross the road”.
‘Look out for pedestrian crossings.’
‘ Always wear a seatbelt when we travel in a car or a bus.’
Road safety was explored through a variety of resources – table top games and drawing maps are only a few examples. The children also put their knowledge into good use when they were walking up to the primary school and back down again to the ECC.
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.
