End of Term and Crazy Hair Day!

Another week of home learning complete!

The teachers have been very impressed with the work being done by their pupils and have enjoyed keeping in touch over Teams.

Our mental maths skills have been put to the test with the Pupils v Teachers challenges and we are sure you will help our school get to top spot on the leaderboard in the Sumdog Easter Challenge.

Today is the last day of term, and so it is time for you all to rest and a enjoy a well-deserved break. There won’t be work added to your team over the next two weeks, but please pop on and say hello or share some pictures of what you have been getting up to.

The House Captains had decided that our monthly dress down day should also be a ‘crazy hair day’. We would love for you to get inventive with whatever you can find in the house and share you pictures on Twitter or your Team.

Have fun today, and for the next two weeks. Our new term of learning will start on Monday 20th April.

Stay safe everyone.

Home Learning for School Closure

To all of our Morningsiders,

Below you will find all of the information you need to get started with home learning whilst the schools are closed. This is just a starting point and I’m sure there will be many changes as time goes on. Although we are providing you with suggested learning activities, we in no way want you to feel under pressure to complete all of these tasks.

This is a difficult time for our parents/carers and children, and it is important to remember that we need to take care of our mental health and acknowledge that emotions will be high and everyone will need a bit of nurture. Take this opportunity to do the things you might struggle to fit in to ‘normal’ family life. Teach your children to tie shoelaces and ties, cook/bake together, go for walks/bike rides or do some arts and crafts. Make use of the vast amount of mindful activities that are available online and try to find some peace and distraction from the worries we are faced with.

The Green Cross Code
·        THINK! First find the safest place to cross. …
·        STOP! Stand on the pavement near the kerb. …
·        USE YOUR EYES AND EARS! Look all around for traffic and listen. …
·        WAIT UNTIL IT IS SAFE TO CROSS! If traffic is coming, let it pass. …
·        LOOK AND LISTEN! When it is safe, go straight across the road – do not run. …
·        ARRIVE ALIVE!
For younger children it can be shortened to THINK, STOP,LOOK and LISTEN.
maximum of three verses and can be an individual entry or group entry

This morning we had a very busy assembly, we practised our Scottish song and then it was on to the presentation of awards.

First up the children showed off their Wider Achievements to the school.

Next the children received their Responsible Citizen Certificates from the Support Staff.

Then the children that took part in the Lego Club were awarded with their certificates by Mrs White.

Last but not least the children that took part in the Colourful Seamantics group were awarded with their certificates.

As usual we here at Morningside Primary are super proud of all our children, not just the ones pictured.
