We have been learning all about castles. We wanted to know what the different parts of a castle were called. We now know about a moat , a portcullis and that a knight wears armour. We wanted to make a dragon to fly over our castle, so Miss Glynn helped us to make one . Now we need to think of a name for him.
We have been learning fractions. Our spelling words are ei and eigh. They are quite hard. We have been learning lots of facts about Van Gogh. We did ‘Wheatfields’, using pastles and ‘Starry Night’ using pastles and paint. We used paintbrushes and toothbrushes to paint and printed the stars and moon. They look ammmmmazing. Today was the end of our sponsored Big Read. Lots of people brought sponsor money in. Every time we read a book we added a link onto our paper chain. The paper chain has made it right across the classroom.

It looks like the circus is beginning to arrive in Primary 1! The Big Top is taking shape and the circus people are practising their skills. We had some clever clowns practising tumbles, juggling and balancing in gym today.
Many thanks to all the parent/carers who have signed up to have letters and newsletters sent to their e-mail addresses. If you have not yet signed up, please complete the attached form.
We are now operating this system and hope that you enjoy keeping up with all our news this way!
Primary 1 are going to be learning about The Circus! We watched Dumbo at the end of last term and because the boys and girls enjoyed it so much we thought we could learn what it would be like to be in a circus.
Watch this space to see the transformation of our classes and our pupils!!
