A rainy morning didn’t stop us enjoying our visit to our local Church of Scotland! We spoke about why and how babies are christened and saw the font they use. We also learned some new names for the things we saw … the pews, lectern and pulpit. We heard about the history of the church and, after Mrs Leslie’s Assembly, we also looked at Betty Mouat’s resting place.
As part of our “Around Our School” topic and our Religious and Moral Education studies, we visited one of our local churches. Reverend Thomson told us all about the history of the church and showed us around all the important parts of the building, including the baptismal pool. He showed us old photos of how the church used to look inside and spoke about the changes they’d made. We are looking forward to our next church visit so we can compare the two churches in our local area.
Mrs Smith visited our class today with her new baby. We all crowded around to ask lots of questions and get a cuddle! Of course, baby Leva slept through all of the excitement!
Primary 1 have been settling into school life really well and will start full days this coming Monday. So, what have they been getting up to? Here are just some of the activities they have been involved in. They’ve packed a lot in!
This morning, we had a visit from the Childsmile team. We all got our new brushes and showed Shona how much we remembered from her last visit. She was impressed with our brushing! Keep up the good work at school and home too P1/2!
Primary 1/2 had a visit from Police Officer Chris Hardwick today to tell them all about his role in the community. We look forward to inviting him back again so that we can find out more.
Primary 2 have been enjoying lots of opportunities to carry out practical maths work in the afternoons when the P1 pupils have gone home. They have worked really well in groups to explore “capacity” and have been learning how to compare and estimate.
