P1/2 have been working really hard to learn their lines and we’re just about ready for Friday! We’ve had a few last minute changes due to illness but P1/2 are taking everything in their stride as usual!
We really hope you can come this Friday at 1:40 and stay for tea and a look around afterwards.
Primary 1/2 will be doing ERIC time (Everyone Reading In Class) on Thursday and Friday morning (14.3.19 & 15.3.19) from 9:30 – 10:00. If any parent helpers are free for that half hour and would like to come and join in with our reading time, we’d be glad to see you! Just leave me a message in the comments box if you can come. Thanks!
On Tuesday, we had our last group of children sharing something they were proud of.
Yet again, P1/2 have shared a wide variety of things they are proud of and it was really interesting listening to all of the questions our audience had to ask them afterwards.
Scott showed us a model of Titanic that he made with his Dad. He said it was very tricky to make and paint.
Rohan told us that he has been learning how to play chess with his Papa. The class were very interested in how to play the game and Rohan did well to explain the aim of the game and all of the things you can do.
Kirsty told us how proud she was of her Granny’s knitting. She brought in photos of the different items made and we were treated to seeing them in real life too!
Scarlett showed us a little container she got recently which had chocolate inside!
Ella brought in a rosette and cup that she won at a horse riding completion. She loves the “running race” the best!
This term we are using themes to help us focus more during Show and Tell sessions. The first theme is ‘Something I am proud of’. Each week a different group of children will take their turn. This week it was Jasmin, Innes, Jessica, Arthur and Alexander G to share something they are proud of.
Jasmin told us how proud she was of her Granny and Grandad. She had photos to share with us and told us all about what she was doing in each one. I was so busy enjoying listening to Jasmin that I completely forgot to get any photos of her! We all enjoyed hearing about what she gets up to with her Granny and Grandad and why she is so proud of them. Well done Jasmin!
On Wednesday 28th November, Kirsty’s Dad came to visit our class to talk about his job as a retained fireman. He brought in lots of things to show us and we leanred about the importance of his job in our local community. P1/2 asked him LOTS of questions and we all had fun trying on some of his firefighter gear! The oxygen tank was VERY heavy!
Thank you to everyone who sent in information about their job in the local community too, the children have discovered the wide range of services in our local area and the importance of each one.
As part of our “Around our School” topic, we have been finding out about jobs in our local area and the types of services they provide. Thank you to everyone who has sent in information about the jobs they do, the children loved finding out about them all and could see how important every single person was in our community.
We were lucky enough to have Dr Anita Graham in to visit our class on Wednesday to share information about the type of work she does. The class all came up with questions prior to her visit and everyone loved getting to try out some of the equipment Dr Graham uses on a day to day basis. Afterwards we shared our thoughts on what we want to be when we are older…a Doctor was by far the most popular choice!
We hope you are all enjoying your book bag that has been provided by the Scottish Book Trust, as part of the Read, Write, Count campaign. Once again, the bags contain lovely stories, which we’ve been sharing in school too. They also have activities and resources to help promote early language and maths skills. If you want help working in some fun reading, writing and counting activities, there are lots of super ideas on the website below.
Well done P1/2! You did such an amazing job preparing for your assembly at school and home. Thank you to everyone who supported you learning your parts! Everybody said what big loud voices you used on the day so that everyone could hear what we’ve been learning about. Thank you to those who came to watch …we hope you enjoyed it.
