P1/2 Assembly

Today, we were a little nervous but there was also a lot of excitement as the time for our performance neared! P1/2 put on a brilliant show which included acting out The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark, talking about our own experiences of the dark, showing photos of our own constellation shapes and singing and playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  They ALL performed brilliantly!  We missed having Kirsty and Peter with us though.  The class have done so well considering some have missed rehearsals due to illness and others have had to change role at the last minute, or take on extra lines.  Thank you to our families for helping at home and coming to support us on the day.  It means so much to the children and us!   Here are a few snaps from our afternoon!

Starting the Day

This morning, we started the day by adding watercolour paint on to our wax resist, night time sky.  Our pictures will accompany writing we’ll do based on the story, “The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark.” Everybody thoroughly enjoyed seeing the magical stars appear through the paint.  Somebody even said, “I wish we could start everyday like this!”  We look forward to experimenting with more colours as we finish our owl painting.

Friday 7th December

P1/2 had a busy day this Friday.  We are all enjoying opening up our class advent calendar and seeing what tree decoration is waiting inside for us to add to our class tree.  Thanks too, for all the lovely donations to our alternative advent calendar!

Friday saw our first visit to the Sandwick Pool.  All children thoroughly enjoyed their time swimming and they all performed well.  Really good effort drying and changing from the little ones too!

The afternoon saw us catching up with some of our usual Friday activities and because we were all quite tired from our play rehearsals and our morning out of school, we all enjoyed some craft time and time to play with friends during our Task time.

 

Robot Rumpus!

P1/2 have started to prepare for World Book Day.  We have read and enjoyed “Robot Rumpus!” by S.Taylor and R.Collins.  Today, the children were asked to think about what jobs they would like a robot to help them with.  They named their robots and started to create them using different craft materials.  The next step will be to write about what their robot does for them, to accompany their pictures.  Here are a few photos of our work in progress!
