We had a very successful walk up Dechmont. We dressed as pirates and decided that it was a perfect lookout point. We could see for miles!
We have been busy bees this week getting ready for our open morning tomorrow. We have been learning about the world of work and talking about jobs that the children would like to do when they grow up. We look forward to showing you our work tomorrow.
We have an exciting week next week, with the Beach trip on Tuesday and Sports day on Wednesday afternoon. Primary 2 and Primary 3 have been given their residential letters for next year so please return these with the deposit as soon as possible.
Last week of homework this week!
Remember house colours for sports day and appropriate clothes for the beach.
We had a fantastic trip to North Berwick to take part in Plundering Pirates and Seashore Explorer. The children learned about local pirates and made real life treasure maps. We got to explore the Old Kirk and had lunch outside. We finished off on the beach exploring the sand and making sandcastles. We all had lots of fun and learned lots!
Today we are walking up Dechmont Law. Children have been learning that pirates always had to be on the look out for other pirates or dangers. We decided to go to the highest point in our local area to see how far we can actually see!! We might even see the sea!!
Recently we have been working hard learning how to tell the time. The boys and girls have been using clocks and digital clocks to tell the time. P2 have also been investigating number patterns and Primary 3 have been finding the fraction of a number.
Primary 2 have now learned all the phonic sounds so we are now revising all of the tricky ones. Primary 3 are still working their way through the Primary 3 programme with new sounds each week.
All children have had a letter inviting the parents to come to school next Friday for a Careers Day. At some point could you discuss with your children about what you do for a job/career? We have lots of activities planned next week and we can show you these on Friday when you visit.
We also have the Beach trip in 2 weeks time (Tuesday 19th June). Could you please fill out the EE2 forms and return to school?
P.E Monday and Thursday
Homework: Spelling, Maths and Reading
