Last day of term!

We have made it to the last day of term!  Today we have enjoyed listening to Christmas stories in the Library and have caught up on Topic work that was delayed due to our days off with Storm Caroline.  We have enjoyed playing Jingle Bells on instruments in Music time and listened to the older pupils perform for us in the afternoon.  Sadly, lots of pupils have been absent today so were not here to receive their gifts, cards and decorations. They will be waiting for you in the new term.

We would like to take the chance to wish all the children and their families, a merry Christmas and a happy new year!!🎅🏻

The First Minister’s Reading Challenge

Well done to Alexander who has completed his First Minister’s Reading Passport booklet.  He has read lots of story books and factual books.  He has drawn his favourite parts and has written about what he has learned.  He has also recommended stories for his friends. 😀


P1/2 were excited to prepare for advent by helping to create our Kindness Wreath.  Each day, we read out a different act of kindness that it is hoped they will try to carry out at school.  Please see your child’s diary for suggested acts of kindness that they could do at home during the weekends too!  As well as our class wreath, each child received a note home asking them to contribute to our Food Bank on a given day.  We are very grateful to you for supporting us with this.

Our Senses – Touch

We have been learning about the 5 senses.  With me, they have been looking at our sense of touch.   We measured how far our skin would stretch if you laid it out flat.  The children were fascinated to see how big an area it would cover!  We have been naming parts of our hands and skin and looking closely using magnifying glasses.  We have talked about the “receptors ” under our skin that send messages to our brains to help us make sense of what we are touching.  Very carefully, we tried using paper clips to help us feel which parts of our bodies were more sensitive to touch.  We have tried using just our sense of touch to name hidden objects.
