Prep 1 Prepare for Winter

Prep 1 started the year singing along to a jingle telling us how to use tissues to keep our winter germs to ourselves! We even learnt that it is good to sneeze into our elbows if we don’t have a tissue at the ready!  There have hardly been any absences from class this month, so our germs must have been beaten!

We learnt how important it is to keep warm in winter and had a lot of fun discovering different ways to do this. Our big Investigation was to see if we could count the right number of cotton-wool marshmallows onto our paper mugs of hot chocolate!  We all agreed that tasting real hot chocolate and marshmallows was tops!

A Busy Term in Prep 1

Prep 1 have been enjoying the crisp autumn days, foraging for seeds and leaves and looking for squirrels. Yes! We were quiet enough to see them. We are learning Mandarin each week with Helena and Janice, students on a placement at Stranmillis University College and enjoying circle games and activities. Our ‘Autumn Café’ has been very busy during play times and the girls have also been sorting coins in preparation for Christmas shopping sprees. Now we are getting ready to be beautiful angels in our Nativity performance, and how sweetly we can sing!

Prep 1 Fire Station Visit

Prep 1 were very excited to visit the Lisburn Road Fire Station and meet the fire-fighters. They had a great time looking at all the equipment stored on-board a fire truck and saw just how quickly a fire-fighter can dress in his protective clothes. They also practised using a hose with full gusto, knocking a cone over with the water jet!

January in Prep 1

Prep 1 have had a really busy half-term. They really enjoyed meeting Beverley from Sustrans and finding out about how some people use a bicycle to help them do their job. It was a lot of fun dressing up in bright clothes to remind them how to keep safe on darker mornings and evenings. In class we have been finding out ice and playing in our Ice Palace. We then had a Big Investigation to see if we could get the right number of cotton wool marshmallows onto our mugs of hot chocolate. We have made our own chow mein to celebrate Chinese New Year and Miss Tang gave it a thumbs up!

A Busy Term in Prep 1

Prep 1 have had a very busy time. We had lots of fun outdoors exploring the school grounds with all their autumn colours and have been very energetic in PE doing our gymnastics. Two Austrian students, Nicole and Laura, have been helping us to learn some German songs and greetings. We have just written our Santa lists and copied the words really carefully so that Santa will bring the right surprises!

January Learning in Prep 1

We have been busy learning to read, make and copy Winter topic words.

I wonder if we have some engineers of the future in P1 with their amazing designs for Ice Palaces.

P1 are busy working on the script for Frozen 3! They will be introducing more princesses, a snow pig, puppy and even a vampire, so watch out!

A Busy September in Prep 1

P1 have been busy planting bulbs in good time for flowering in the spring.

Sorting out the seasons can be tricky maths!

Look who has been in our P1 house! It is Goldilocks and the 3 bears!!

This was one of our Big Investigations this month. We were finding out who had the biggest footprint.

P1 have been enjoying making music and listening to stories during Outdoor Play.

Mums and Dads beware, these ladies are rather speedy on those scooters!!

Now who is going to grow the most enormous turnip?
