As part of our Moving maths sessions on Wednesday afternoons the boys and girls in Primary 1s and 1n made Fruit punch. We have been learning about volume and capacity. We followed a recipe and filled the cups up to the correct lines with different fruit juices. We enjoyed our drinks afterwards!
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! 🙂
Over the last few weeks we have been learning all about number bonds in Primary 1s. We have been learning all the number bonds that make the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Lots of practical work using cubes and counters have helped these bonds to become familiar.
We had a very musical circle time this morning in P6N!
Here are some pictures of a typical busy day in P2n. The class has been learning to use Rekenrek counting frames to help them with subtraction and this has worked really well. Also some great work at the craft table, games table and big book reading activity. Checkout the class singing Frere Jacques in two groups at the top of the page!
