Outdoor Learning Down the River

This morning P1-7 walked down to the river to take part in some outdoor learning activities. The children found bugs, insects and flowers and used magnifying glasses to explore them more closely. The children also made some autumn jewellery, had an autumn scavenger hunt and made homes for birds. A fun and adventurous morning was had by all.

Primary 1/2 Learning Update

We have had an extremely busy week in Primary 1/2.  We have made pumkin soup, learning to develop our chopping skills and following instructions.  We had a lovely outdoor learning afternoon looking for signs of autumn and collecting lovley things to make autumn jelly.  We continue to learn new sounds and numbers and some of us have been playing school in free play putting into real life practice our learning! Primary 2 have loved learning their numbers to 100 this week and are doing a great job using a 100 square to find numbers.  Primary 1 have been ordering numbers.  This week our story writing was linked to the story Room on the Broom and we had some very creative brooms in our stories. We loved melting our frozen hands today, exploring different ways to free the hidden treasures inside. The week ended well with a chocolate apple and a disco on the playground.

sharing our learning

We have been very busy over the last few weeks. We have been continuing to learn about the sun, moon and Earth. We explored how craters are formed on the moon using special moon dust and marbles.  In literacy we are continuing to learn new sounds, tricky words and developing our writing skills.  We have enjoyed playing games on the playground helping us to recognise numbers and counting.  Mrs Lorimer visited us with some honey from her own bees which we all enjoyed tasting.  We have been problem solving, working together, constructing and having a great time in the outdoor classroom too.
