Thanks to the glorious Shetland weather, we were able to do all our planned activities today! We started off at the Boddam play park to do an experiment on forces. Then, in groups, we had to show forces at work using the play equipment. After some time inside looking at Electricity with Mr Rose, it was back outside to do a spot of reading before we joined the rest of the school on our whole school walk. A full day of learning and fresh air!
P1/2 have been using the laptops to research French food this term as part of their Food topic. Some food sounded really yummy – macarons, crepes, baguettes and tarte tatin just to name a few. Others were a bit surprising. Have you ever tried frogs legs and snails?!
We decided that we wanted to try making some of the yummy treats for family and friends to enjoy. Once we found some simple recipes, we wrote shopping lists and began the preparations for our French afternoon. Invitations were made and sent out. Then it was time to begin making and baking! We also made a milk chocolate tarte and a white chocolate tarte but forgot to take photos!!
Following on from our fruit tasting afternoon, we gathered together all the results and worked with a partner to create a bar chart on the laptops. Then we worked together as a class to make a giant bar chart for our classroom wall. I wonder which fruit was the most popular?
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!
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.
