Class Activities and Pupil Comments 

It has been a busy first week back! 

We have started our new topic this week – The Enchanted Forest. We are reading The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton as a class novel and we are enjoying getting to know the main characters as they explore the forest behind their house.  

We will be transforming our role-play area into an Enchanted Forest and we have been deciding what we would like to find in there. We are looking forward to learning all about the different animals, trees and plants that we might find in this habitat.  

Wider Achievement 

Abi has been doing the Junior Park Run in Dumfries and she has completed 13 runs in total. She has a special wrist band to say well done for her super achievement! Well done Abi.

We have decided on the poem we will be reciting for the Burns competition which is ‘A Dug, a Dug’ by Bill  Keys.
