It has been a perfect week for P1 to look more at how water freezes and ice melts and to relate it to the frosty mornings and snowy weather! On Monday we did ice experiments, predicting and then testing to see whether salt, sugar or hot water melted the ice fastest.
We also worked in groups to make ice ornaments to hang in the playground. Hopefully the children managed to share these with you and tell you why they were melting.

Other highlights this week have been eating pancakes on Tuesday, learning to takeaway in maths and the ch sound in phonics. We are all excited for World Book Day next Thursday!
Jack enjoyed trying on the Roman weapons! He agrees very heavy and would not enjoy being a Roman!
We made and cooked delicious pancakes. We could choose butter, jam or Nutella to have on top. They were delicious.
Rob came to talk to us about the Roman fort near Melrose and to show us some of the artefacts that have been found there. We got to hold a 1800 year old Roman playing piece from a game and also got to try on some replica armour. It was great fun but we decided being a soldier must have been hard work as the armour was very heavy!
We’ve had lots of fun this morning taking part in activities across the school to celebrate Kingland’s 10th birthday.
Here is our Kingsland acrostic poem:
Kicking balls in the MUGA
I love reading!
Numbers, numbers, numbers!
Great fun at PE
School is awesome
Never stop learning
Deeds not words!
