Visit from health promotion officer in surestart
George the dinosaur had just finished his breakfast and wanted us to brush his teeth for him. We all had a little brush and got them sparkly white for him. We have to remember to brush our teeth every morning and every night. We listened to a little story and enjoyed some singing.

Our visit from the PSNI
We had a lovely and very exciting morning on Thursday, when the PSNI officers came to our class. They told us all about their job and described their uniform to us showing us their walkie talkies, their little torches, handcuffs, phones and lots more. We got to wear their hats and some of us even got handcuffed! They told us to always wear our seatbelts and to sit in the back of the car if there is room. We are only allowed to sit in the front seat if the back is full with younger children and we’re on a booster seat. We got to climb into the back of the van and listen to the sirens. We had so much fun learning all about the police. Have a look at the pictures below.
The theme the year was ‘respect’. We covered many activities to link awareness to the theme. We talked about who we should respect and how we can show respect. We pledged to listen when the teacher is talking, hold the door open for someone else and say ‘excuse me’ when passing by another person. The children designed wristbands with the word ‘Respect’ highlighted on them and danced to Urethra Franklin’s song r-e-s-p-e-c-t! I
Neil the postman
Our topic for this term is ‘People who help us’, so we asked our local postman Neil to call into class and tell us all about his job. He showed us the big bunches of keys he uses to open the post boxes, the scanning device used for barcodes, post bag and his Royal Mail uniform. The children loved trying on the sunhat, woolly hat and gloves. The children then had a question and answer session and Neil told us Santa’s very important address in Lapland so we can post our letters.
We had lots of fun this week playing the maths games the Primary 5 children designed and created for us. The Primary 5 children enjoyed explaining their games to us and we loved playing them.

We went for a walk around our school looking for 2D shapes. Take a look at all the shapes we found.
European Languages Day
We celebrated European Languages Day on the 26th September. Our chosen country to study was Spain. The children enjoyed dressing up in Spanish clothes or the colours of the Spanish flag, red and yellow. We sampled some Spanish food and drank ‘sangria’. We had a great day.
