P1 are enjoying their new ‘light and sound’ topic. Today we spent the afternoon carrying out some light experiments. We discussed opaque and transparent materials and they loved working as a team to figure out what was in each dark box!! We then discussed how light enters our eyes and how we need to use other senses if we can’t see...this activity resulted in lots of giggles!!

Number ‘7’ number rotations

For working as a team and always trying our best, we got a class reward of hot chocolate outside - it was delicious!

P1 love their weekly number activity rotations!

Children in Need: we loved wearing our pyjamas to school and enjoyed the tasty buns from the P6 bun sale 🧁
