Every Friday, 1 pupil from each Primary 1 class take time to prepare a snack for all P1 pupils. We call it our social snack as we enjoy taking time to eat and talk about our snack together. Each class brainstormed suggestions for what we could make.
We have been learning all about water. Today we were scientists, investigating ‘floating’ and ‘sinking’ through different experiments.
We made predictions on whether or not everyday classroom items would float or sink and tested them in water to see if we were right.
In pairs, we constructed our own tinfoil boats and watched to see if they would float. We even added weight on to the boats to see if they could stand up to the test! We loved being scientists for the morning. 🙂
We are so proud of our Primary Netball team who were awarded the Sportsmanship Award as part of the Shetland Primary Netball League. The girls have taken part in a number of matches against teams from all over Shetland and have been great representatives of Bell’s Brae.
Here they are at training on Monday accepting their certificates and trophy! 🙂
Yesterday was a special day, it was Pancake Day and our Teddy Bears’ Picnic day!
We made pancakes and sandwiches for our picnic. We decorated our pancakes to look like teddies. We danced with our teddies; we sanG with our teddies and we ate with our teddies. Primary 1 had a super time.
We had a fantastic time at our Chinese New Year party this afternoon.
We tried Chinese foods; we used chopsticks as part of a game and we did a dragon dance! We also tried on Chinese clothes and answered questions about Chinese New Year. We listened to Chinese music and made up our own Dragon style dances too.
