Ms Wylezalek and I would like to thank all families for their kindness and generosity this week. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with your children in their first year of school and we absolutely love the wee books you made for us. Thank you!
We hope that you all have a lovely summer break.
Tomorrow morning we will all move to our teacher’s new classroom. One of the last jobs before we move is to clean our trays ready for the next class that will use the room. P1B found a way to have fun while getting the job done!
We used straws to blow bubbles in the water. There were some huge single bubbles and some people managed to create mountains of bubbles. Great fun was had by all, and now the trays are clean, so we’re ready to move. (We even cleaned parts of the carpet while we were at it – turns out trays of soapy water get quite slippy!)
This afternoon we learned lots about ways to help animals.
We’ve enjoyed adding things to our map as we’ve learned more about our community.
All of Primary 1 enjoyed a visit from P.C. Fowler this morning. She told us about all of the equipment she carries with her and she answered lots of our questions.
Thank you P.C. Fowler, we really enjoyed you your visit.
We were very lucky to have Sue come in to talk to us about puffins – we learned loads from her. Thank you Sue.
This time one of us went home and used playdough to creat a colour wheel. He started with the primary colours and mixed them really carefully to create the secondary colours. Super work!
On Tuesday P1B learned about primary colours and how these could be mixed to create the secondary colours. We also had a look at the colour wheel.
One of us went home and created her own colour wheel – SUPER work!
We had great fun celebrating Edinburgh’s City of Superheroes today. The children brought lots of wonderful costumes and accessories and did some fantastic superhero writing. In the afternoon everyone used their imagination to create extra superhero accessories to add to a superhero head band.
Great work P1B!
We experimented with tin cans connected with string. Great fun!
We have added 3 QR codes to one of our displays. To use them you need to have a ‘QR Reader’ app on your phone/tablet. When you scan a code you will be taken to Vimeo where you can press the play button to hear one of the children talking about their learning.
Watch one of our P4 pupils demonstrate how to do it:

We used Red Riding Hood’s air-drying clay to make magic fairies in the wildlife garden. we are wondering if the magic will work and they will turn into real fairies.
Gold medal from a recent gymnastics competition.
Very well done!
We have been investigating the weights of various objects.
We iced skeleton biscuits and made masks:
P1A and P1B collected different coloured leaves in the Meadows this afternoon. They took them back to school then sorted them into groups according to colour. The final task was to create a leaf rainbow – super teamwork from everybody resulted in this fantastic rainbow.
Ms Christie has kindly arranged for all classes in Primary One to have a cycling session this week, starting with balance bikes and moving on to two wheeled bikes. Some children have never ridden a bike before, others have ridden many times. Some children can already cycle with two wheels and they have been learning greater control. Some children have managed to ride a bike without stabilisers for the first time. Super work everybody!
