Boys and girls in P1, P2 and P3 were super excited to have a socially distant visit from Father Christmas this afternoon. We know how busy he is at this time of the year, however he made an extra big effort to see the children and the Parent Council elves helped make this possible.
The joy and excitement was clear to see in the faces of the children, many thanks to everyone who helped make the visit possible for our children today!
This week P.1 have been having fun with a variety of Christmas activities. There were lots of sparkly and festive jumpers worn on Christmas jumper day. Many of the children enjoyed their Christmas lunch in the classroom whilst they listened to Christmas music. For Christmas art gallery day P.1 made a piece of art work that used different art techniques. First they created a background with chalk pastels and blended the colours together. Then they added snow flakes with cotton buds and white paint. They chose an animal to draw and cut it out and glued it to the background. Then they designed a woolly hat for the animals to wear and put it all together. They all worked hard and produced lovely art work. Finally for gingerbread day P.1 decorated a ginger bread person and they are now hanging on our Christmas tree. Great Work P.1!
Primary 1 have been learning about Night and Day for their science work this week. They have been working with our PGDE students Mr Cuddy and Mrs Wright on how we get night and day, what we see in the day time and night time and which animals are nocturnal and will only be seen at night.
Also this week Primary 1 have been making stained glass window stars to tie in with their night and day topic but also to decorate the classroom windows for Christmas so that everyone can walk past and enjoy their art work.
