Good morning Primary 1!

What lovely weather we’ve been having! I hope you all had a great weekend with your family and that you all managed to get outside in the sunshine! We definitely are making the most of this fantastic weather. Miss Daun went out for two walks in the Pentlands and enjoyed walking along the Water of Leith. Miss Cunningham enjoyed spending some time in the sunshine and washed her car! Miss Christy went for a 45 mile cycle in the sunshine past lots of arable farms. What a huge achievement! Here are some pictures we captured over the weekend:

This week in maths we are revisiting money to consolidate our understanding of what coins look like. We will also be thinking about finding the correct change when paying for an item with 10p.

We are also continuing our topic of farming and this week we are going to be focusing on arable farming. We have challenged you to draw your own arable farm map, label a flower and create your own poster detailing how to look after a plant. We would also like you to learn some new French words!
