We were learning about mindfulness and how it can help us to relax.

We were developing our skills to use our reading books to do Find it Prove it!

Fantastic work Primary 1, such superstar learners!!!

Poppy Day

Primary 1 had great fun learning why people wear poppies in November.

We made these lovely poppies…

Then put them in our wall display…just like Flanders Field.


A huge thank you to our families who sent in photographs and stories of bravery, we have put them up on our wall.

We are so proud and thankful to all the people who have fought in the wars.

Fantastic fireworks!

Primary 1 have been having fun making these fantastic fireworks pictures.

Putting lovely glitter on our pictures to make the fireworks sparkle!!

In our Health and Wellbeing Topic we are learning that Key 2 to a Happy and  Healthy lifestyle is doing exercise and looking after out heart.

Here are some things that we do to exercise.

Another great week of fun learning!

Happy and Healthy Topic

This week Primary 1 have been enjoying the Happy and Healthy topic. We talked about things  that make us happy. Here are some of the things the children said….

“When my mum gives me cuddles”

“Making people laugh”

“When my baby cousin Neive gives me cuddles”

“When Mummy and  Daddy let me go to the park”

We are learning that there are ten  keys to happiness. The key we were learning this week was Connections.

We discussed how we had loving connections in our family .

…..and in our class.

This is our display to show that every child in Primary 1 is connected in  a circle of friendship.

Well done Primary 1…..great work!
