Primary One Social Snack

Primary One continue to enjoy their weekly “social snack”.

We take turns preparing the snack by spreading, grating, mixing, cutting, rolling and slicing different food items.

We like to talk about what we are eating; discussing foods we like and foods we are not so sure about. Eating a snack together encourages us to ‘try’ different foods we maybe haven’t tried before.

Today, we made Valentine’s cakes ๐Ÿ™‚

Primary 1N Explore Melting and Freezing

Yesterday morning, Primary 1n made ice cubes for an experiment that afternoon.

In the afternoon, we spoke about the frosty weather we have had this past week. We discussed how we stay safe outside in icy conditions and the purpose of “grit”. We made predictions on what would happen if we put grit on an ice cube, and what would happen to an ice cube left alone in the classroom.

We went out for a walk near to the school and spotted some grit salt boxes. We gathered some grit for our experiment. We saw the gritter out, gritting the roads ahead of another cold night.

Back in school we carried out our experiment. The ice cubes covered in grit did in fact melt much quicker than the ice cubes left alone!

Sharing Stories

Primary 5s have created their own ‘alternative’ fairy tales.ย  We spent some time exploring a variety of picture books which had alternative endings to the traditional stories we all know.ย  ย The children then had to write their own version and turn it into a picture book which they then shared with P1n.

The boys and girls in P1 loved this and said that they recognised the stories but they were much more interesting and really liked the illustrations! P5 really enjoyed being able to share their work with some of our younger children and P1n were excellent listeners!
