Martial Art Success!

Primary 1 made huge gross motor skill progress through following a series of 7 martial art sessions. They have also shown outstanding responsibility by keeping their karate skills for the sessions and not letting them creep into play times or lunch times. You have made Miss Copeland, Mrs B and Mrs McGlashan very proud! Look at all of those Get Active, Stay Active JASS certificates! Well done, superstars!

Last week we celebrated World Water Day by taking the time to appreciate all of the ways we use water; for washing, for drinking, for plants, for animals, for fun!

We then moved on to our final section of our water topic which is water for growing.
We each took 2 minutes to draw a flower. When we looked at them all together we noticed that even though they were all different colours, they all had a flower and stem, and most had leaves. This is just like a person – we have eyes and ears and hair, but sometimes they are different colours.

We have each planted a seed into some soil and will get to take them home on Thursday. We need to remember to give them water to help them to help them grow.

1 year since the first lockdown

On Monday we took some time to reflect on the past year. As part of a whole school display, we decorated these 4 puzzle pieces with who supported us and how. We also made yellow heart sun-catchers to be displayed at home, just like the rainbows during the beginning of the pandemic.

World Autism Awareness Week
