Transition to Primary 1 – Part 2

After the children finished their snack the children went on to the school field to meet their Buddy who will help them at break time and lunchtime for the first few weeks in Primary 1. The Primary 6 children were so excited to meet their Buddy as they realise what a responsible role this is. All the children had great fun on the field.

Transition to Primary 1 – part 1

As part of our pupils transition the children take part in a special snack in the gym hall to familiarise them with the hall and the dinner routine. This was very successful with all children listening carefully and following instructions when collecting their food and putting away their trays when finished. It also gave the children the opportunity to meet Kathleen our school cook.

Minibeast Hotels

After the interest generated by the minibeast hunt, the children were challenged to make two different types of minibeast homes. The children worked in small groups with adult help to build their structures. The children worked cooperatively finding sticks, leaves and moss; problem solving and changing their ideas when needed. Some were very imaginative including furniture for the bugs.

Wood Working Skills

Miss McKinnon has been busy introducing wood work skills to the nursery children. She has been taking children in pairs introducing the tools and how to use them safely. So far the children have been hammering nails into wood and then progressing to screwing in nails to the wood. I think the photos show the responsibility, concentration and focus used by the children on these activities. Well done!

Minibeast Hunt

After the interest in minibeasts from last time at Wee green space the children went on a minibeast hunt. The children worked co-operatively with clipboards, magnifying glasses and collection pots all looking for worms, bees, millipedes, butterflies, snails and spiders. The children were so excited searching for the minibeasts looking under stones, in trees and digging in the soil.

After our search we all gathered together and spoke about all the minibeasts we found.

Snack was very popular today as the children were all so hungry after their busy hunt.
