P3 Dice Doubling

P3 have been working on improving their cooperative skills and this week, they put these skills to practise when taking part in dice games and ICT activities to focus on doubling numbers.

Check out the excited faces, and some disappointed faces too. They are quite a competitive bunch!

P1a Settle In

P1A have settled into life at school beautifully and are all enjoying their busy days. 

We have started to investigate our school, looking at the people in our school who help us and exploring the other classrooms and playgrounds. 

Mrs Smith also introduced us to the gorgeous rabbits in the first level playground.

Aliens Invade P2

The pupils have been asking some big questions about the moon and some of the planets and an alien called Pog must have heard, as they crashed into our classroom and left some bits of their space craft behind while trying to fix it.


Pog said they were from Mars and left a letter asking for some information from the pupils about the moon.


The pupils gathered evidence from the scene to discuss what might have happened. Some pupils also tried to rebuild a space craft.


The pupils created their own character called Pog which they will use while they learn about story structure, creating their own version of ‘Man in the Moon’ by Simon Bartram.

I’m excited to see where the pupils will take our learning next!

P1a School Tour

Mrs Honeyman enjoyed a visit from P1a and the staff who work with them. They were joined by our newly appointed Clan Chiefs and Deputes who were giving our newest pupils a tour of our school.

P2 Class Charter

P2 worked together to create their class charter. We have all agreed to follow SHANARRI, making sure everyone is Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Responsible, Respected and Included.

P2 were also introduced to the United Nations Convention of the Child, which is all about Children’s Rights. We have discussed what adults should do to make sure their rights are respected.

Every day P2 put their peg name onto an emotion symbol to show how they are feeling each day. We are learning about different emotions and how body sensations change with our emotions.
