This week we have learned about how to look after ourselves and stay clean and healthy. We did a glitter experiment whereby we put it on our hands and watched as it spread to everything we touched. (We also, at this point, had a brief discussion about the importance of using biodegradable glitter and what this word meant!) We discussed how this happens with germs every day and we can’t see them. This led to a discussion about foods and things we put near our mouths using our hands and we were all able to see why it is so important to wash our hands properly before we eat.
We will continue by looking at clean and dirty water, as well as healthy eating over the next few weeks.
The children did very well with their Burns poems, and although not everyone was confident in reciting theirs in front of the class in P3S, they all managed to it off by heart. Most even brought theirs to life with expression and gestures. Well done to Lauren, Ben, Alfie and Holly who went through to the class vote.
We enjoyed hearing all of the poetry in our whole school Burns celebration on Friday morning. What a talented lot of children we have! We look forward to sharing our recital talents and singing in front of the senior citizens at our Burns afternoon on Monday.
This week we will be creating life size knights with their protective armour and weapons and writing about how it would have felt to be a knight.
- Please remember appropriate kit on PE days
- We have had a lot of children losing or damaging the new books. Primary 3 have had the most letters sent out for replacements in the whole school. Please encourage your child to look after the books and bring them every day to school ready to practise their reading.
- Please label all clothing coming into school, including PE kits.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Smith, Mrs Smith and Ms Matheson
