Welcome to this week’s Assembly. Although we don’t have any stars of the week – we do have some amazing superstars all working hard to achieve their JASS Awards!
I also need to say that PRIMARY 1 have impressed the school office staff immensely with their lining up and quiet walking so they get to use the BLOCK PLAY in the undercroft this week! Enjoy!
Next week we’ll be finding out who has won the House Cup for April 2021 and I am looking forward to writing all the GREEN names on the Roll of Honour in the open area – hoping my pen runs out of ink because there are so many!
Hello, I’m so excited to have you all back! Let’s have a quick flick through what we were looking at in the last week of term 2.
Water topic – plants
We were encouraged to break the flowers that Miss Copeland brought in! We used our curiosity skills to inspect all of the different parts of the flowers. We then compared flowers to see if they had the same parts.
We know that all plants need: air, soil, light and water. We have been taking care of our seeds and took them home on the last day of term to nurture over the Easter Holidays.
House Corner Fun
Miss Copeland had received many many hand written invitations in the final week inviting her to watch a show in the house corner. She finally managed to find time on the last day to sit and be entertained by the amazing skills and talents of Primary 1! Bravo!
We designed and created 3 beautiful Easter cards to be given away to friends and family. Inside you may have noticed the fantastic handwriting Primary 1 have been putting into practise. We had to be super careful and resilient, especially when doing the card below, where we used pens to add detail to our finger prints!
Health and Well-being: Feelings – Proud
Proud: It is a good feeling that you can have when you or someone else has tried very very hard and has achieved something. We enjoy celebrating our own and others’ successes in Primary 1! Take a look below at some of the answers the class offered when we discussed this word.
March Monthly Page
Here is our monthly class newsletter. You can see that we have a new universal format. Check out the other class pages to see what they have been learning.
I wonder what you will achieve this term to make you feel ⭐proud⭐

Here is this week’s Assembly. Today we will all go home at the usual times and begin our Spring Break. For many of us that means enjoying Easter treats. Other families will be celebrating Holi and spring festivals, or getting ready for Ramadan and looking forward to Eid. However, we’ll all be looking forward to spending some time with our families and enjoying the changes spring is bringing to our world.
I hope you will all check back later to enjoy the opening of this year’s Art Gallery – the exhibition is all about HOPE. https://youtu.be/p-mYy-evDZo

JASS – My Interests
Roman built this amazing digger at school and did some baking at home
Mariam completed this cool puzzle
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.
