Welcome to Donacloney Primary School.

P1/2

We are learning about penguins! First, we estimated how many blocks tall our penguin was. We carefully measured our emperor penguin using small cubes and large bricks. Next, we measured the peguins that we made during our art lesson! We used our cubes to find out how tall our penguin was. We recorded the answer in a speech bubble.

Today, Nathalie's Mummy came to school. She made some beautiful salt dough Christmas decorations. We had great fun and can't wait to hang them on our Christmas tree.

We are, 'Class of the Week'. This means we were the best at; lining up, walking in the hallway, being kind and many other things. Mrs Mc Corry thinks we are wonderful!

It's anti-bullying week! We have been thinking about our friends. We decided to make a friendship bracelet. We wrote something special about our friends on each heart and gave it to a friend. Our friends are special to us!

In class, we have been learning about 3D shapes. We were investigating which 3D shape would roll, slide or stack! Do you know?

We wanted to find out how penguins stay dry. Here we are carrying out an investigation to find out. We realised that if we covered our picture with a wax crayon, the water would run off the penguin. We now know that it is the same for real penguins. They have a layer of wax on their feathers. This keeps them dry and warm!

This week we are learning about penguins! We measured ourselves against an emperor penguin to see if we were taller, smaller or the same height. We had great fun and turned this information into a pictograph! Clever us!!

Today Lily's Daddy came to school. He was showing us how to plant a bulb that will grow into a beautiful daffodil in the spring time. This will be a beautiful gift for someone very special to us!

We have been learning about different Nursery Rhymes. Today we read, 'Pat a Cake'. We read the rhyme and then we decorated our own cakes. They tasted yummy!
