Primary 1 have had a really lovely week of activities based around books to celebrate Book Week Scotland. On Monday, they were delighted to hear the lovely story of “The Girl Who Stole the Stars” being read to them by the author and illustrator, Corrina Campbell. Thank you Corrina for coming to our school to read your story and especially for letting us join in with actions while you were reading the book.
During the week Miss Allison has based lots of activities around the non-fiction book, “My First Book of Birds” and the children have thoroughly enjoyed them. They went on a bird hunt, made some bird feeders to hang up on trees around the school, created a beautiful collage bird, wrote amazing imaginative stories about bird adventures and built some super birds’ nests. They have also listened to the other stories from the Bookbug bag; “Brenda the Sheep” and “This is a Dog”, both of which they enjoyed very much. They listened to the Gaelic version of “This is a Dog” too and were delighted to learn some new words. It has been a super busy week but has been such fun too!
