We made our own papyrus (it was quite messy!) and when it dried we drew on it. It wasn't as smooth as modern paper.

Maths was very important to the Ancient Egyptians. They used symbols for numbers - we had a go at writing some.
We played some of the maths games on this website.

We are learning about Ancient Egypt this term. This is a history topic - about things from a long time ago. We made a timeline which went from the dinosaurs right up to us being born!
The River Nile flows through Egypt and it was very important to the Ancient Egyptians. We are making a River Nile display.
Caroline has loaned us a pyramid and an Ancient Egyptian boat to play with, it's good to play with them to help us learn more about the Ancient Egyptians.

As part of our weather topic we have been learning about how people survive in cold climates. Louise has been to the Arctic and she came in to tell us about what it's like there. She brought in clothing, and also a replica sled - you can't travel by car in the Arctic!
We pretended to be huskies pulling the sled.
First we had to do a howl
Then we pulled!

We have been designing and making coats for Camembear and Brie. First we had to find out which materials would be best - the coat had to be waterproof and keep them warm. We did experiments to find out which materials were best for this.
Here are the finished coats!

Sally from the Orkney Library came in to visit P1 children and to give them their Bookbags and Book Bugs!

In Philosophy we talked about where we thought the rain comes from. We had some interesting ideas but we didn't know. We now have much more of an idea, after we made a minature world (it needs to be sealed so the weather doesn't escape) where we have already made clouds.
We also made a display to show how the water goes round and round in the water cycle.

We are checking the weather each day...

We have decorated our class room with big weather symbols that we made ourselves. We are also learning the weather in French so we made French labels (they are in English on the other side too!)

We are learning the colours of the rainbow. We watched this song
and we had a go at playing it on the bellplates
We realised that the song doesn't have the colours in the right order so we had a go at writing our own mnemonics (these help us remember the order). Miss Clements taught us one about Richard III - Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain - but we thought ours were better!
We have even had a real rainbow this week!
