Rhyming challenge

Today’s challenge is to try and find as many different rhyming words as you can.  The rhyming word is a nice easy one to start.  The word today is bat. 

Remember when you are rhyming, the end pattern at stays the same and the letter or letters at the beginning change.

To make it a challenge see if you can score as high a score as possible.

  • Score 1 point for three letter words
  • Score 2 points for four letter words
  • Score 3 points for words that are larger

Post your final score up here and I will put up a list of rhyming words up on Friday.  I will also put up a new rhyming challenge tomorrow.

Scholland Farm Soup

 

We made soup using the vegetables from Scholland Farm.  First we washed the vegetables ready for peeling.

Then we carefully peeled the carrots and parsnip. We peeled away from us to help keep our hands safe from harm and we did it carefully.

We added the onion to our pan. Mrs Inkster chopped that for us and it made her eyes water!

Then we chopped some carrots and parsnip.

Some of us watched while others prepared the vegetables.

Then we chopped and added some neep .

Next it was the broccoli and cauliflower.

Then we put the soup on to cook.  We decided to have vegetable soup and lentil soup using the vegetables too.

While it was cooking we were being good listeners and following instructions for our activity.

We had a break and tried some raw carrot and raw neep.  Some of us had never tasted raw neep before and it was delicious!

Once the soup was cooked we tried the lentil soup first.  We thought that was delicious.

Then we tried the vegetable soup. Some of us didn’t like it but some of us like it so much we had another bowl!

It’s been a busy morning in our class but we really enjoyed using the vegetables that we got from the farm and we all agree that it tastes great when we know and have seen where the produce comes from.

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!

Name a gritter competition

There was a lot of excitement in P1/2 on Tuesday when we discovered that Alexander was a runner up in the Name a Gritter competition, which was open to all schools throughout Shetland. He entered the name Snow Boss and joined 5 winners and 4 other runners up from around Shetland at a presentation at Nesting Primary on Monday afternoon.

Look at all of the things he won! He also won a sledge, but it was a little too big to bring into school!

Well done Alexander!

SPORTS DAY

What a super sports day!  Primary 1/2 were so well behaved all day and waited very patiently for their turn to run.  When it came to their events, everybody joined in and gave everything they had!  I am so proud of all your achievements and Mrs Henderson would be too!  Thank you to all those who came to support us throughout the day and cheer us on.  We’ll all sleep tonight!
