Outdoor Learning and Writing

Do you have a good imagination? We do! How many different things can you make a stick into? A sword, a horse, a magic wand? Weights to be lifted or a partner to dance with. Can you look at the photos and guess what we pretended our sticks were?

We voted on whose work should go on the website by putting bears on our favourites

Roman and Khadijah’s work
Andy and Mariam’s work.

This work was inspired by the book Not A Stick by Antoinette Portis. Read the book below!


“We done patterns. Patterns repeat”, Bryce.

We chose these ones for our website “because they are beautiful”, Rayan.

Scottish Maths Week Assembly

This week was Scottish Maths Week. We have been spotting shapes in our topic – Our community.

Can you spot any 2D shapes? Can you spot the places where people who help us work?

Well done to all of Primary 1 who helped make our amazing maths week poster. We chose to call it ‘Our Flat City‘ because we squished the 3D buildings into flat 2D shapes for our map. We each drew our own house and then added our favourite places like Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat, Tesco and McDonalds. We also added the places where people who help us work, like our school, the fire station, the police station, the doctors surgery and the dentist. A special well done to our brave speakers!

Rather than gathering in the hall, Assembly is now done virtually using a video platform called Microsoft Teams – The laptop is positioned below the iPad I am filming on – this is why the speakers are looking down 🙂

Health and Wellbeing

This week we were learning about the ‘uh oh’ feeling you get in your tummy when you are worried, scared or sad. This ‘uh oh’ feeling helps to keep us safe.

Jessie and her friends like to watch videos on their devices like a tablet or phone, but what should they do if they see something scary that makes them feel worried, scared or sad? They should tell a grown up they trust!

This coming week…we will be talking PANTS with Pantosaurus!

Pantosaurus is the boss of his own body. He knows that what’s in your pants, belongs only to you because your pants cover up your private parts. Scroll down for the poster and song, or click the link below!
