“Lovely nursery, lots going on.”

“Great to see my child play so confidently, she’s now ready for school.”

Last night many of our children and parents visited nursery and the school for our social studies showcase.

Social Studies

This week we have made invitations to invite our parents/ carers to our Social Studies showcase. We hope many of you will be able to come. We have continued to plant nasturtiums, sunflowers, carrots, peas and potatoes. Many of our plants will be on sale at our showcase. In our groups we have been planting cress or mustard. We are going to look after these and hope you will have a chance to taste cress or mustard next Thursday.

Zoe and Brogan have been playing in our Garden Centre role-play area. Brogan said, “I like playing with the dirt, look I was planting.” Noah is making his invitation in this photograph.

This week we have been busy learning about the Romans! We have worked hard turning Percy’s Hut into a Roman Villa and we love playing in it!! We have also been learning about the Roman army and made our very own soldiers to protect our empire. We also learned that the Romans used mosaics to decorate buildings so we had a great time designing and making our own.

As part of Road Safety Week we spoke about the importance of safety rules.  We watched a video about 2 boys playing with their ball near the road.   We thought this was dangerous.  In the first video the boy went to fetch the ball and had a terrible accident.  However, in the second video the boy did the right thing and got his friend’s mum to go and get the ball.  The children have been asked to talk to parents at home about playing with balls and where it is safe to do so.  We want everyone to be safe when playing.


Scottish Road Safety Week – P1 Room 9

As part of Scottish Road Safety Week, we have been sharing what we know about staying safe on and near roads and making sure we remember our Green Cross Code.

“Press the button and wait for the green man.” Maciej

“Don’t run across the road.” Kallum

“Hold a grown up’s hand.” Zaina

“Look for a safe place to cross” Abbi

“Use the green cross code” Leah

We took our learning outside and practised crossing safely with the green man remembering to STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and THINK.This helped us remember other important safety ideas:

road safety 002 road safety 003 road safety 004

“Check your feet are on the pavement. Take one step back.” Lauren

road safety 005

“I was a parked car.” Harry

“If you have to go between parked cars, only do it if you are WITH AN ADULT.” Molly

“Go to the edge of the car  so you can see passed it and STOP, LOOK LISTEN and THINK.” Lauren

“You should really find a safer place to cross like the green man.” Leah

Good work Room 9 and stay safe – Wester Inch is a very busy place.
