There are lots of things living in primary 1b!

We are very excited about the latest additions to primary 1b...caterpillars! We have named them all (Bruce, Sooty, Slimey, Crawly, Scott, Junior, Buster, Cutie, William and Kate!) and are measuring them every day to see how big they are getting. One (William) is already 5c m long! We also check them every day to see if they have gone in to their chrysalis yet. Its all very exciting but Miss Williams is keeping her fingers crossed that they don't turn in to butterflies over the May weekend!

Bruce the Caterpillar

We have planted our seeds and are taking really good care of them making sure that they have enough sun light and water.

End of Term Reward

We all had a fantastic afternoon along at the sports centre for our end of term reward. We enjoyed trying new things and having fun with our friends. The fun didn't stop there though because when we got back to school we got to play one of our favourite games...dodgeball!

Term 4

It is hard to believe that we are already in our final term of primary 1. We have all worked so hard over these past three terms and when you look at what we have been able to achieve, all of our hard work has really paid off! So we will keep trying our best so that we can achieve our final targets that we have set for ourselves this term.

The new term brings with it a brand new topic all about living things. We decided that we wanted to learn about different insects and how flowers grow. We also thought of some questions we would like to find answers to:

  • How can an ant carry something that is heavier that it?

  • How do butterflies drink water?

  • Can you get ladybirds that aren't red?

We hope to find answers to all of these questions as we learn about our topic.

To learn more about how plants grow and how to look after them, we have planted some seeds in our classroom. Check back soon to see how we are getting on (Fingers crossed we see something growing soon!)
