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”!
