P1/2 Miss McDermot’s class and P2 Miss McArthur’s class completed their Roots of Empathy program with instructor Mrs Harris-Toner. Each week the children enjoyed getting to know Baby Alan and seeing how he was changing and growing. We connected with our Roots of Empathy family through wonderful photos, videos, news and voice messages sent by his mum Jordan.
The lessons gave the children an opportunity to share their feelings and experiences. The children’s especially enjoyed the art activities and thinking of their wishes for Baby Alan as he grows up. Last week the children were delighted to receive their well deserved certificates.
Another busy week in P1/2!We’ve been using our numicon in maths to park on ordering and have also started addition. Our caterpillars have been eating a lot and have formed cocoons. Sadly one of them died but he was buried in our playground. We have transferred them to our net and are keeping a close eye on them, waiting for the hatch into beautiful butterflies!
P1/2 were very lucky to take part in an online workshop courtesy of Generation Science. We heard the story of Ella who could feel her voice “wobbling” when she spoke or sang. We explored vibration and sound and had a go at making some animal sounds ourselves. We created a Seagull Squeaker and a Squirrel Shaker. The children worked in pairs to create them. They had a brilliant time!
P1/2 explored form in our outdoor art session last week. The children worked in groups to take turns drawing each other’s outlines using chalk. They then filled the outlines with colours and drawings reflecting what they feel is important to them.
