Butter Making

As part of our Katie Morag topic we are looking at Grannie Island's farm. One of the things that Grannie Island might do is to churn butter. Primary 1 were very lucky today. They had a very special visitor called Mrs McNair. Mrs McNair explained that butter was made from cream and then helped us to make our very own butter.
We had to 'churn' the butter by shaking it lots and lots of times. Everyone had a turn at this. Even Mrs Ayres and Miss McCabe!

When it was thicker, Mrs McNair put the butter into a bowl. She had to take out the buttermilk then she showed us how to pat the butter to take out the extra liquid.

Some people thought that it looked a bit like ice-cream when it was ready.

We spread the freshly made butter on some crackers.

Then we enjoyed eating it. It was really tasty!

Outdoor learning

We took our learning outdoors recently. Our class went out into the playground with room 1 at maths time. We played lots of games to help our counting, and we even took part in a problem solving challenge.

Before we came back in, we practised our addition sums with a learning partner - by writing them on the playground! Primary 1 had lots of fun!

Active Month

As part of our active month we have had the opportunity to take part in a variety of healthy activities.

Curling was a great success.

Mr Armour and Ryan came into school to help us with this and we had lots of fun!

We really enjoyed the aerobics session in the playground before we even came into school - some parents and grandparents joined in too!

We were all wide awake and ready to start our lessons when we came into class.

We would like to say a big thank you to Mrs Gray for all her hard work organising these fun activities.

We got to try out tai kwon do which most of us had not heard of but found that we liked it.

Katie Morag

Primary 1b are working on a very exciting topic this term. We are learning all about Katie Morag and the Isle of Struay. As you can see from the pictures, we are having lots of fun already!

Can you guess what we are making?

Our family and friends will be invited into our class at the end of term to see what we have been doing. We don't want to say too much just now as that would spoil the surprise.

We made a learning plan with room 1 to find out what we already know and what we would like to learn about. There are so many things that we are keen to find out that we are going to be kept very busy indeed this term.
