Observational Drawing

This afternoon P1D did some observational drawing in the classroom. We looked at bluebells and studied all their tiny details. When we’d finished shed we went over to the nature strip and chose things to study closely and draw.

Symmetry

Last week the children enjoyed exploring symmetry and finding lines of symmetry in lots of different ways!

Planting

Yesterday, we planted a fairy garden in the playground. We enjoyed digging, planting and decorating the miniature gardens with flowers, succulents and gems.

Making a difference in P1

Two boys were awarded special certificates today from Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity for the funds they raised. The boys decided that instead of receiving gifts for their 6th birthdays, they would instead ask for donations to be given to charity. Thanks to the generosity of their friends, they managed to raise £200! Well done to the boys for their fund raising and for providing a wonderful example of how to make a difference to the lives of others.

Red nose fun!

Lots of fun was had today, dressing up in red for Comic relief! Thank you to all families for their generous donations for this great cause. We’ve given it the thumbs up!
