We have all had great fun on our bikes today! Well done everyone for bringing your bikes, especially those who cycled a long way to school. Ian has been teaching us, thank you Ian. We look forward to Bikeability later this term!

Go for it - Healthy Lunchboxes and Snacks

Anne Harrison came in to help us work out how we could eat healthily at lunchtime. We had to look at different meals and give them points according to what was in them. We then had to think about how to improve them. Extra challenge - talk to adults at home about eating healthily - use the rising stars booklet to help!

P1 and Nursery children played a game on the Smartboard to make a healthy lunchbox

Marine Litter

Anne and Lesley came in to talk to us about Marine Litter and why it is so important to keep the beaches and other areas free from litter. We looked at all the different types of litter and found that that plastic especially is really harmful as it takes so long to degrade.

We also watched these videos to help us remember to keep our oceans free of litter, and that we should all try to help.

The ocean we want to know

The hummingbird.

Neolithic Tools

Louise came in to show us how Neolithic (New Stone Age) people made tools. It was really interesting, thank you Louise!

World Book Day

We made scenes from books that we like. Everyone worked together really well and thanks to the parents who came in to help us. The finished scenes are great and are now on display for everyone to admire.

The finished work!
