Health Week in P3a 

Posted on

Our week in P3a has been jam-packed with healthy activities and we loved it!

We started off on Tuesday with a Karate session. We had a great time showing off our new skills but Miss White did get a bit frightened when she joined in! 

We also learnt to play some Spanish playground games:”A pares y nones” and “1 2 3 momma es” 

We also got the chance to learn about dental hygiene with some dental nurses. They taught us how much sugar we are supposed to eat each day and how to brush our teeth properly. They also showed us how much sugar is in some popular food and drinks. 

On Wednesday, we got the chance to make some Mexican food with Ms Karam and some of our lovely parent helpers. We made guacamole and salsa to go in our tasty tacos. Lots of us tried new food and enjoyed it! 

Emily, a ranger from Newhailes, came to visit us in the afternoon so we could do some outdoor learning. We went into the outdoor classroom to discuss insects and minibeasts before going off to hunt them ourselves. We found loads of interesting things! 

On Thursday, we had visitors from Edinburgh Leisure come to practise athletics with us.

Then to finish off a wonderful week, we prepared our own fruit this morning and took it outside to have a healthy picnic with Miss Palmer.

A huge thank you to all our helpers and visitors for making this week so much fun! 

P3a update

This week in P3a we planted chives as part of our food and farming topic. This is helping the class to learn what plants need to grow and develop. We will take good care of them and hopefully have some wonderful results before the end of term. 

We have also been recording how many laps we’ve managed to run during our daily dash. At the end of the week we found out that we had run a collective total of 26 miles! That would be enough for us to run all the way to the Kelpies in Falkirk!

Stay tuned to see how far we can get next week… 🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏼

P3a were learning about plural nouns on Friday morning. So, we made the most of the lovely weather and went outside to match singular and plural nouns using giant chalk. Everybody worked hard and there was some excellent teamwork on display – well done P3! 😃☀️

Get Active – Building Resilience 

Posted on

Looking after the body and mind is important for our health. Taking part in regular excercise, or being active in other ways, brings many benefits to our physical health as well as our mental wellbeing. 

Through this unit, the children will learn that in order to help us feel resilient we need to live a well-balanced and healthy life. When we feel ‘down’, being active is sometimes the last thing on our mind. However when we adapt an active lifestyle, fuel our body with proper nutrition and respect our bodies by allowing time to rest and relax, it can lead to a longer, healthier and more fulfilling life.  

Family information will be sent out shortly. 

Murrayfield Stadium Tour

P3 visited the BT Murrayfield stadium this afternoon. They were given a tour of the press suite, the players’ changing rooms and they even got to run out of the players’ tunnel at the end! We had such an amazing time 😃
