We had our final Eco “Out to Play” session with Sarah the Wednesday before we stopped for the October Week holiday. Unfortunately we had to stay inside our classroom for it as the weather was not “smiling” on us that day. We still had lots of fun though and got to make up our own stories with Sarah and she was also very impressed with the class’ “Wonder Box” which has pieces of our work from each session in the “Out to Play” programme. A big “thank you” to Sarah who has worked so hard to make these sessions enjoyable and fun over these weeks!

Our first week back in Term Two was a consolidation week and we have been busy revisiting sounds, common words and numbers we have been learning over the past few weeks. You may have noticed our Courtyard area has had a bit of a “makeover”. It is now a Creative/STEM area where we can let our imaginations run wild with ideas! At the moment we have lots of bits and pieces connected to the season of Autumn to look at and discuss, and also help us with our creativity.

At Assembly on Wednesday St Vincent’s “Oor Wullie” returned home from his stay at Prince’s Square shopping centre. It is good to have him back home. The children also heard a talk from one of the Glasgow Children Hospital Charity’s volunteers about how the “Oor Wullie” Trail has helped to raise funds for their charity. Finally, a big “Well Done” to Keegan who is our latest “Star of the Week” and also congratulations to Jayden who is our first “Mathematician of the Month”!

Primary 1b-Week Ending 4th October ’19

We have had an exceptionally¬† busy week this week. It has been our Topic Week-People Who Help Us and we have been working on related activities. In addition, all Primary 1 classes very lucky to receive visits from Police Officer Belinda, Paramedics Elsa and Robert and Pollok Fire Brigade. All of our visitors spoke about their jobs and in what ways they help people and also showed us some of the equipment they need in their jobs. We were also fortunate to have a look inside both an ambulance and fire engine and everyone in our class had a shot of using a fire engine’s hose! A big thank you to all our visitors who made a special effort to come and talk to us!

The school had a¬† Mass last Tuesday to celebrate St Vincent De Paul’s Feast Day which took place on September 27th while we were off. Beforehand our class had a look at the life of our Patron Saint and heard how much good work he did for the poor and the less fortunate and all the good charity work he did which continues to this day in his name throughout the world.

Primary 1b have also been continuing to do ongoing Literacy and Numeracy work. We have looked at the sounds d and e, and the numbers 8 and 9. Miss Hunter has been doing Music with us and Sarah from “Out to Play” has been in each Wednesday to continue our Eco Drama work which has, for the last two weeks, taken place in our Field of Dreams. Finally a big Well Done to Hao who is our new “Star of the Week”!
