The Right to an Identity

Uplawmoor Primary School is a Rights Respecting School and as part of this the children learn about a different right each month. Primary 1 to 3 have been learning all about the right to an identity. We played games in the hall, played guess who with different characters, drew portraits of each other in pairs and logged onto to the Child’s Rights Launchpad.


The Owl that was Afraid of the Dark

We are really enjoying our class novel at the moment and one of the things that the children wanted to investigate was how birds build nests. We decided to go into the playground to try it for ourselves. Once out there the children decided to build a nest big enough for the whole class. We had to gather all sorts of different materials that the children thought would be suitable and work as a team to complete the job. Good job Primary 1. I think Plop would like it!

Next question to be answered… do you make bird food… this space…..

Super Soup!



Primary 1 have been learning how important a healthy diet is and what that looks like. They had asked to make tomato soup and so we did. It was delicious and we invited Primary 2 in to sample our cooking!

Paired Reading

Primary 1 and Primary 7 took part in some paired reading recently. Primary 7 selected a book and designed a follow up activity for themselves and their partner to take part in. Some children read the Gruffulo and had their buddies retell the story using plastic animals whilst others enjoyed Aliens love Panta Claus and made play dough aliens. Primary 1 really enjoyed the event and discovered some new books as a result.



Team work makes the dream work!

Primary 4/5 showed excellent team working skills today in their lesson with Primary 1. They planned, set out and explained exercise circuits aimed at Primary 1. They took great care to encourage and support Primary 1 in their learning. Primary 1 had so much fun and really enjoyed the circuits. Primary 1 also commented that Primary 4/5 were a good team because they took turns to talk and listened to each other. We are working on this in our class too! There are more photorgaphs on Twitter.


Fairytale Land

Our new resources have arrived in Primary 1 and they are brilliant! We are loving playing with Fairytale world and the children now want to write fairtytales this week. We will let you see how we get on!

Monday Measure

Today was all about measure in Maths and Numeracy. The children are investigating and comparing different weights. They are using words like heaviest and lightest and putting things in order of weight. We carried out an investigation this morning estimating then weighing different things in the classroom. The children were playing with the scales in different ways.

Our Senses

We have been learning all about our senses in Primary 1. We were painting with paints that had different spices in them like ginger, cinnamon and cumin. We also went outside on a sensory walk to find out what we could see, taste, touch, smell and hear.

d is for dinosaur

Today we were learning all about the letter “d”. We were singing about it, listening for it in words and writing it. We had lots of fun drawing around our dinosaur templates, playing in dinosaur island and working as a team to build a HUGE dinosaur jigsaw.

Sorting Materials

The children have been learning about different types of materials such as plastic, metal and wood. We went out to collect different materials in our school grounds. We found lots of different things and then sorted them into our three categories.
