Today for our movement break we enjoyed playing in soft play and completing the circuits course 😊.

As part of our β€œall about me” topic work, we have been working so hard learning all about our senses. Today we had great fun testing them! We had to listen to sound clips and match them to the correct pictures, smell mystery smells, use our hands to find out what was inside the magic feely box AND eat crisps to test our taste buds! Not sure who enjoyed that part more, the adults in P4/5, or the pupils πŸ€”πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ–πŸΌπŸ‘‚πŸΌπŸ‘ƒπŸΌπŸ‘„

Lots of hard work going on during numeracy topic work today! We were learning about pictograms.
