Today Primary 1 had their Christmas lunch. We filled our empty tunmmies with tasty turkey, super sprouts, perfect potatoes and groovy gravy!
To get into the Christmas spirit we spent the morning making our party hats to wear and also used our knowledge of patterns to create an angel for our Christmas trees.
We have had a great day designing, creating, singing, dancing and also watching the panto ‘Mother Goose’! Miss Roche’s favourite part was when ‘Lucy’ (the goose) was returned to Mother Goose. What was your favourite part?
Primary 1, 2 and 3 have been working extremely hard over the past few weeks on their nativity ‘Sparkle’. We had a glistening and sparkling dress rehearsal yesterday for the whole school. I have attached a sneak peek at some of the cast.
Tickets are still available for the Thursday afternoon (2pm) and the Thursday evening performance (7pm). If you are interested in tickets please contact Mrs. Weir at the front office.
We look forward to seeing you there!
All of Primary 1 got the chance to become a member of the litter patrol at the beginning of November. They had great fun clearing the playground of any litter and using our fantastic new litter patrol bibs and litter pickers to help them with their task. Well done P1 were fantastic at helping to keep St. Gabriel’s clean and litter-free.
All of the classes are being given the opportunity to make an effective contribution to our whole school eco-schools litter project! We have a weekly class rota system and P1, P2 and P3 so far have had the opportunity to use the special litter picker equipment and wear the Litter Patrol vests.
Can you spare some time on Friday 6th or Saturday 7th May to help tidy up the school gardens? Parents, Children, Aunties, Uncles, Cousins, Grannies, Grandads, anyone welcome! You don’t have to be a green fingered to help, just come along and bring some gardening tools if you have them. Any help is always appreciated.
Today is the offical opening of the P1 toy museum. At 9:30am Mrs Torley cut the ribbon and declared that we were open. All morning the children have been busy acting as tour guides, security or encouraging visitors to try out some of the toys on display. During the week all the other classes will get the opportunity to visit. The museum will be open to parents and carers 1:30-2:30pm and 4:00-5:00pm on Wednesday 23rd March. Please visit if you can, there will also be a cafe and a shop open at this time.
Primary one are very excited to be starting a new project this term. We will be organising our own toy museum and inviting parents / carers, other classes and other members of the community to visit. Today we started by finding out what we already know and preparing some questions for when Sarah Cowie from Museum Services visits us next month. We will also be making our own toys and today we designed outfits for our puppets to wear. We will make our puppets next week and they will also be on display in the museum. We would like people to lend us toys to go on display (all will be carefully recorded and returned afterwards) and there will be a letter soon to explain what we need – look out for this. We will also let you know when the museum opens for business so you can come and visit.
Our Nativity countdown continues and I’m sure you will all be impressed by what P1, P2 and P3 have achieved given the unusual circumstances of the last few weeks. ALL children should attend both performances: 2pm and 7pm on Thursday 16th. Please bring your child to the church no earlier than 6:20pm and no later than 6:30pm. After the 2pm performance children will be walked back to school and should be collected from there. In the evening P1 will be collected from the rooms in which they are changing. Thank you for your continued help and support and I look forward to seeing you all in the church on Thursday.
