Today, a wonderful lady called Katherine came in to tell us LOTS about WWII. She brought in the most incredible selection of memorabilia and let us try things on and touch everything. Ask us all about her visit!
On Saturday 14th September, it is World First Aid Day. In celebration of this, and with links to our UNCRC article of the month, Article 24, today we had Gavin Daschofsky in to deliver a lesson in first aid. Gavin works for Fire Rescue. He told us about the acronym:
Ask us what each means. The first is as important as the last in an emergency situation and it is important we complete each step in order.
We got to put each other into the recovery position and practiced giving CPR to a dummy.
Today we learnt a new card game called Starfish. Ask us how to play it. It is lots of fun for all of the family (P3 upwards perhaps). It can be as easy or as challenging as you make it. We started playing to learn and some of us ended up rather competitive…
Please see Term 1 Overview below. Some of this will spill into Term 2. We are still in the process of getting all groupings up and running. Homework will come home this week, so keep an eye out for that.
We have had a busy start to the year. We have been helping our buddies and break and lunchtime, learning lots about the UNCRC (ask us to see if we remember what that stands for) to support us in creating our class charter, completing baseline assessments, organising our Pupil Profiles, swimming, watching a production of the Jungle Book and lots more.
Keep an eye on our blog for updates of what we get up to 🙂
If you go down to the woods today…you’ll get very wet!
We had a lot of WET fun in the woods today. It was P1s penultimate visit and we went along with them for lots of free play fun. We looked for bugs, jumped in wet leaves, squeeeeezed through branches in trees, made spider webs from ropes, drank hot chocolate/tea/hot juice and got very wet. We loved every second and left feeling very content.
Thank you to our buddies for having us along, you all know SO much about the woods and how to keep safe in there. Thank you also to Mrs Haines and the parent helpers for their organising and support (and to Mrs Dunthorne for kitting us out last minute with waterproof clothing and shoes…).
We had the BEST week in Lagganlia last week! From beginning to end, special moments were had and memories made. P7 are creating a Google Slides presentation (along with loads more photos) to show to all parents on the Open Afternoon on Wednesday 26th June. We look forward to seeing you then 🙂
Today we had PC Elliot in to talk to us all about substance misuse and the side of the law. It was really interesting and he told us real life stories. Cameron and Matthew also got searched and were found carrying drugs for own use and for dealing. We found out about how the police can search someone, the different sentences and what happens afterwards. We got to ask some questions and look through the ‘drugs boxes’ he took. Thank you to PC Elliot for his time.
Photos don’t do the fun we had today justice.
Today we spent some of our Burns Supper profits. We voted on what we wanted to with the money and decided upon a trip to Infinity Trampoline Park followed by a Domino’s FEAST! As we all wore out leavers hoodies, we got extra jump time for FREE which was amazing. We had loads of fun, and even managed to get Clare, Wendy and Miss Morgan in the foam pit!
Afterwards, we devoured a huge Domino’s feed and even got a treat (ice-cream, juice or sweetie) afterwards.
Unfortunately the weather meant we didn’t get to Whin Park but we enjoyed some time being together and using our Chromebooks, writing stories, drawing and being on the Sphero robots this afternoon.
Thank you to all who helped today and for all those who attended our Burns Supper!
On Wednesday 22nd May, we went to the Highland Rugby Club to play in a tournament with other schools that will go to Charleston. It was good fun and nice to meet others who will be in S1.
