Thursday Activities

Today saw P1/2 involved in lots more Viking activities!  In the morning we listened to Stephen Renwick talk to us about Viking life. He told us about Viking clothing, weapons, money and trading and answered lots of our questions.  P1/2 listened so well and answered questions really sensibly.

Then we went to see Esther Renwick who is an archaeologist.  She talked to us about her job and told us about how we “know” about the Vikings.  She showed as a pretend excavation site and how when you go down through the layers, you may come across things from the past, going further back in time the lower you dig.

In the afternoon, we talked about Viking runes and practised writing our names as we would have done years ago.  P1/2 did this with ease!  We wrote our names on foil and made Viking type pendants.

Friday 7th December

P1/2 had a busy day this Friday.  We are all enjoying opening up our class advent calendar and seeing what tree decoration is waiting inside for us to add to our class tree.  Thanks too, for all the lovely donations to our alternative advent calendar!

Friday saw our first visit to the Sandwick Pool.  All children thoroughly enjoyed their time swimming and they all performed well.  Really good effort drying and changing from the little ones too!

The afternoon saw us catching up with some of our usual Friday activities and because we were all quite tired from our play rehearsals and our morning out of school, we all enjoyed some craft time and time to play with friends during our Task time.

What a super day and what a quick year!  Today we have had time playing both indoors and outside in the nature garden…what a beautiful day for the last day of term!  We really enjoyed signing all the P7 cards and wishing them well as they leave us.  Some pupils spent the morning writing them notes…they’ll be such a miss!  After lunch we headed outside to watch the P7’s V Teachers Rounders match at the pitch.  Then it was back inside to say farewell to Mrs Hay and to celebrate her time with us with poems and music…and an ice lolly!  Thank you all for your support over the year from me, Mrs Tait and Mrs Henderson.  You’ve all be super to work with and we’ve enjoyed spending the year with your children.  Have a super holiday and see you all back on the 22nd August.


You are invited!

We hope you have all received your invitation for our learner led event which will take place next Tuesday evening between 6pm and 8pm.  The children are keen to show you around the class and share what they have been working on.   Look out for their pupil self evaluation sheets which has a section for you, their parent/carer, to comment on too.  We look forward to seeing you!

Did you find your invitation?
