This week, the children of P4S presented their class assembly on the theme of Creation to their parents and their school friends in P1-4. This was a vert special occasion as it was the first time a special assembly has been held in Hart Memorial since the Covid outbreak. The children’s performance was excellent. They sang beautifully and are to be commended on how well they learnt all their words. They made their teacher and CA very proud. Well done to everyone.

This week it is our turn to litter pick around the school grounds so we headed out this afternoon. It was fun to use the litter picking sticks so the children were actually disappointed to find such a small amount of rubbish in our school grounds, just the odd tissue and bit of plastic. Well done Hart Memorial pupils for keeping our school grounds so clean and tidy.

We have been learning lots about staying safe during Road Safety Week.
One of the messages we looked at was ‘Be Safe, Be Seen’.

We learned how important it is that motorists can see us when we are out in the darker mornings and evenings at this time of the year. We loved the fact that our book bags have reflective strips on them to help keep us safe!

As part of our WAU topic (Trees) we have been growing seeds. This week we planted cress seeds. The children predicted  that it would take 2 months for them to sprout so they were shocked and delighted to see little seedlings within 48 hours. We also did a science investigation to find out the conditions needed to make seeds grow. We found out that they need water, light and warmth. The children were amazed to see that seeds which sprouted in the dark produced very pale and weak seedlings.
