Pet Homes in P.1/2

As part of our Pets and Animals topic, we worked at home with our parents to make a 3D habitat for an animal of our choice. We think our little animal friends would be delighted to live in one of these houses.

Here we are enjoying some play area time with our friends. It’s been busy at the Vets recently but luckily we have some skilled vets and nurses to look after the animals.

During P.E time we have been learning lots of different balances. This week we focused on balances with a partner. Don’t we look like professional gymnasts?

Primary 1 update.

In RE, we have been learning about what Jesus teaches us. He teaches us to love God with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind and all our strength, and to love others as we want to be loved. On Friday, we made hearts for each other to share our love with our classmates. Everyone worked around six different stations, gathering the material so they needed to make a special heart filled with love.


In our toys topic, we learn different that different forces make toys move. The wind makes out kite move by pushing it through the sky. We made these kite designs using painted paper. Our target was to create some clear, careful patterns with a paintbrush, making sure we did not squash the brush into the paper but used it gently to make clear shapes.

Then, we listened to a story called “Someone bigger” and it was all about flying a kite. Everyone wrote their own kite story.


On Friday, Pets at Home came to tale to us about some of their pets. They brought along some guinea pigs and a rabbit. It was very interesting.

Hieroglyphics in Primary 3

We have continued our Ancient Egyptian topic by learning about hieroglyphics. We had so much fun gathering information through books, videos and PowerPoints. We also used hieroglyphics to write our own names. It was great fun!

P6b Update

This week we enjoyed learning and working on the skills needed to play Gaelic football.

We have also been rehearsing for our class assembly at the end of the week on Spain, where we were able to showcase our learning and we had a blast performing the songs and dances which we worked hard on over the past few weeks.

Viva España! 🇪🇸

We have started a block of gymnastics in Primary 3 and so far we have loved it! We have been working as a team and have given each other lots of great feedback. Each week, we have been learning new stretches and have challenged ourselves with trickier poses.

We have also been working hard on our phonics and spelling. Doesn’t our work look fabulous?

Topic Fun in Primary 3

We started our ‘Egyptians’ topic last week and we have been enjoying learning all about life in Ancient Egypt. On Thursday, we learned about the Nile River and how it was used in everyday life. We had great fun discussing our ideas and learning and we even made our own boats!
