Our primary children have been learning all about our primary values, Our first value was ‘respect’ and we have tried hard to respect each other and to respect the environment.
These children worked particularly hard to show respect around school.
In P1 we have been finding out how to look after our bodies. We have used the mirror to look at our teeth. We then followed the instructions to brush some very big teeth!
We practiced being Doctors, nurses and receptionists and found out how to take care of our patients if they were not well or were hurt. We made sure we washed our hands first so that there were no germs.
P4 were visited by the school nurse as part of our topic, ‘Good to be Me’. The nurse discussed ways to keep our bodies healthy. We came up with some brilliant ideas and there was lots of discussion.
We talked about hygiene, eating healthily, exercise and looking after our teeth.
P4 have been learning how to use inverted commas in English. We learnt the skills by making human sentences and adding body punctuation to the sentences. We then used our new skills in our writing using pictures from our novel, The Demon Dentist as a stimulus.
P4 have been reading The Demon Dentist by David Williams, as part of English lessons.
We have been thinking carefully about the characters in the story and how they were feeling at different points. We used drama to ‘hot seat’ the characters. We really enjoyed taking on different roles. We also used ‘role on the wall’ to discuss emotions and dilemmas within the story.
We can’t wait to find out what happens next!
P3 have spent this week learning about their host country Brazil.
We looked at the world map and found where Brazil was before going on Google Earth and looking at different places in Brazil.
CB “Brazil is in South America”
We learnt about Brazilian carnivals, we practiced dancing and made carnival masks.
In English we wrote invitations to our friends inviting them to our carnival.
We also looked at different types of Brazilian food and made some in class for our P3 Carnival.
We had to follow the recipes, taking it in turns and weighing the ingredients.
We made flour tortillas
We then had a party to share everything we had learnt with our friends.
These are some of the things our friends learnt.
