Mother’s Day in the Nursery 01.04.14

On Tuesday we invited our mums and grannies to join us in the nursery for a Mother’s Day celebration. We planted sunflower seeds, painted our handprints onto a poem and showed them what we enjoy doing in the nursery.

Primary 3 Outdoor Learning

Over the past few weeks we have linked our outdoor learning to our Egyptian topic. We have been working to develop skills including team work, creativity, problem-solving and communication.

Hieroglyphics
We wrote messages in hieroglyphics in the mud using sticks.

Pyramids
We built pyramids using natural materials.

Shadufs
Shadufs were used to collect water from the River Nile. We worked in small groups to construct working shadufs.

Primary 2 – Outdoor Learning 27.3.14

Today Primary 2 were weather painting.

Our task was to use the wind and rain to create pictures. We used big pieces of paper and primary colour paint. We had to move around the playground and angle the paper in different ways.

Some of us decided to use the puddles in the playground to create interesting colours and patterns.

Here are some of our comments about our learning:

I liked mixing the colours – Shannon
I liked making a mess – Finlay K
It was hard to make the paint move – Katie

Primary 2 Outdoor Learning – 24.3.14

It was a beautiful day so Primary 2 decided to go fly their kites. Some of us had never flown a kite before so we had to experiment and find the windiest places to fly our kites.


Here are some comments about our activity:

This was the best day ever! – Louis
It was so much fun! – Iria
I ran very fast with my kite – Ryan

Primary 2 – Outdoor Learning – 17.3.14

Last week primary 2 made windmills.

We decided to do an experiment to find the windiest place in the playground. We had to choose 5 places and predict which place was the windiest. We used our windmills to measure how windy the areas were.

The top playground is the windiest place at our school.

Nursery Week Beginning 17th March
