Our first Outdoor Learning morning of the term involved a shape hunt around the playground. We worked in teams to find and photograph 2D and 3D shapes. We had lots of fun and would now like to go on a shape hunt around the village!
Primary 1 and 2 took their maths lesson outside today. In case we weren’t feeling warm enough we played some 2 times table hopscotch. Then Primary 2 found fractions of numbers while Primary 1 made symmetrical pictures using natural materials.
Nursery and P1-4 enjoyed taking part in an Authors Live event today with author and illustrator Alex T Smith. Alex told us all about how his Grandpa inspired him to become a writer and about his love of drawing. He read us some of his new book ‘Claude goes for Gold’ and showed us step by step how to draw the character Claude. Our fantastic drawings will be on display in the corridor come and have a look!
“It was weird how he drew one bit of Claude then moved on to another and then went back. It was really cool”
“I found it hard to keep up he drew really fast! I was really happy with my finished drawing”
“It was good”
“It was fun!”
“It was fantastic. I liked the story and drawing the dog”
We wrote a letter to our local Co-op asking if they would donate some fruit and vegetables to our class. Yesterday they did and we received a bag full of delicious fruits and vegetables. Today we used all of the fruit and had a great time making smoothies and fruit salads. Some of us even tried new fruits and liked them!
