P1 - Miss Brown

December

This is one of the busiest times in our school year, but it's also a really happy and fun time of the year!

Nativity rehearsals are well underway and our big performance is on Thursday 13th December at 9:30am.

Open Night is this Thursday from 5pm-7:30pm

 

 

Oh no!!!! Eddie the Elf is back ........

Every year we have a visit from a naughty little elf, he watches how we are behaving but when he is alone he is a little scamp!!!

He brought a little note and made some mischief last night in our classroom ...........

 

November

Our new topic is "Light and Dark"

We will be learning all about:

  • Day and night,
  • Making shadows
  • Colours
  • Electricity and lights
  • Space
  • Owls

 

The Owl Man

We all got to stroke the Spectacle Owl and some of us were even picked to hold the Owls.

We gave Don some money to buy mice and other food for the owls.

They are amazing birds.

We found out that Owls are NOT all nocturnal, they are silent flyers and they can see up to 1 mile away.

Don Scott brought 3 beautiful owls in to show us.

 

Pumpkin Soup

We made delicious pumpkin soup today. We had to do lots of peeling, chopping and slicing. We put all the vegetables into a soup maker and added some stock.

We cooked the soup over lunch time. When we came in from our lunch we were able to taste the soup. Have a look at the photos to see what fun we had!!

 

Harvest time

Today we celebrated Harvest in our assembly. We talked about how we have so much food, the supermarkets are full of things for us to try. We sang about all the food that's in our trolley.

We brought in lots of tins of food for the South Belfast Food Bank. It is good to share what we have with those who need our help.

Autumn

Autumn is a colourful season.

We can use all of our senses as we walk around.

The leaves change colour and fall to the ground, they crunch as we walk through them.

We walked to Cherryvale to see what signs of Autumn we could find.

We had lots of fun.

We didn't see any squirrels, we had hoped we would see them gathering acorns for hibernation.

We will be having lots of fun back in school with all that we collected today.

As a special treat we got to play in the park. Today was so much fun!!!
