We had a lovely day at Oxford island, kitted out in rain coats and wellies (thankfully the rain stayed away!). We went for a lovely walk through the woods and found pictures of woodland creatures. Then we went on a mini-beast hunt and used paintbrushes to encourage the bugs into our magnifying glass pots. After, we made dragon flies with pipe cleaners and had lunch. No P1 trip is complete without a trip to the park!
Don't worry - none of us were arrested!
Our experiment was called the 'Swimming Gingerbread Man.' We put a gingerbread man into a glass of water and monitored the changes that took place. At first he sank to the bottom. Then he began to float to the top and all his colour disappeared! Our gingerbread man also lost his shape and bent backwards. He was very 'wobbly' in the glass!
We decided to make some boats at playtime that would get a gingerbread man across water - we don't trust the foxes! Miss Kelly gave us a little gingerbread man each and if our boat floated we could eat him up (don't worry, everyone got one in the end!). We used our photographs to do some shared writing about our science experiement.
The builders next door have been working very hard to start our new car park. We have enjoyed watching the progress so far and made Rice Krispie buns today to bring to the builders.
It wouldn't be fair to learn about castle banquets without having one ourselves! For ours we made toast with butter and jam, so that later in the week we can sequence how to do it and write some captions.
We are off to a fun start in P1 this half-term. Our new topic is 'My Home is My Castle' and Mrs Dalzell and the boys and girls were so busy painting and building a fantastic castle to play in!
Primary One boys and girls have done a super job on their homework project!! Have a look at our lovely stockings. We are so proud of everyone and love what they have created at home with mummies and daddies. Well done to everyone for making, showing and telling!
Visit to the Post Office
We went on a big walk to Laurelvale Post Office this morning to post our letters to Santa - very important business! It was very, very cold and because we were all so good, Sam from the shop gave us a big strawberry sweet each! Although we were tired (it was mentioned that we should have taken a bus...) after the walk, everyone did such a great job and it was lots of fun.
Primary One Princes and Princesses were very excited to be invited to Cinderella's Ball. What a magical way to celebrate our first 8 weeks in school!
We love outdoor play with P2. Last week was especially fun as we painted and rolled pumpkins!
Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?? Not us!!
What a day! The fairy cakes we decorated for Little Red Riding Hood to bring to her Granny had disappeared this morning and following a phone call from Little Red and an email from the Big Bad Wolf himself, we set out to scare him away and get our buns back! Equipped with our little cub ears as a disguise, we did some challenges to make the wolf sleepy and save the day!
As a reward, Little Red Riding Hood let us eat the fairy cakes! YUM!
Well done little P1 wolf cubs for a busy and brave day!

We have had lots of fun so far with our fairy tales topic. Here are some pictures of our Little Red Riding Hood play and making fairy dough!
