Class Trip - Amazonia!

As part of our topic this term, our class visited Amazonia. We had a great day visiting the 'rainforest'! Primary 1 got the chance to see lots of interesting things like butterflies (that were much bigger than the ones we had in class!), monkeys, snakes, spiders, terrapins, koi carp fish, toucans, parrots, ants, bats, ghekkos and lots of other insects.
Our guide even let us touch a snake, a tarantula spider and a ghekko! Miss McCabe said we were all very brave - she even managed to hold the spider! Primary 1 had lovely sunny weather for their trip too, and after the handling session we had the chance to play in Strathclyde Country Park.

Topic in term 4 - Living Things

The caterpillars that our class were looking after became butterflies recently! Each caterpillar came out of the chrysalis with beautiful orange and red colours on it's wings! Primary 1 are very proud that every caterpillar we had hatched safely. We had to look after the butterflies before we let them go by giving them food and creating a nice place for them to live.
It was lovely to see them being released into the environment!


Primary 1 were lucky enough to have another visit from Mr Gladigator this term. He visited our school to talk to us about oral health. He was very impressed with how much we knew about caring for our teeth! We had great fun talking to him and playing on his inflatable run!
