As we could be expecting winter/snow weather, we have created a booklet that can be shared at home if nursery is closed. This information has been created with your child’s interests at heart by the nursery team. In the event that nursery is closed, a GROUPCALL text message will be sent to the number we have recorded for you – so please ensure this is up to date.
Information will also be shared via Social Media so please look out for this in the event of winter weather.
This is no means homework, but some fun filled play activities to enjoy at home whilst it’s snowy! Please feel free to share pictures with us on your child’s online learning journals. Some other activities will also be shared via the Nursery Blog by Mr Wilson to enjoy at home if you choose to do so.
This week a Primary 3 pupil decided to challenge herself by visiting Primary 2 and becoming our early morning story teller. She read from one of the Harry Potter novels. The children were very excited by her visit and enjoyed it so much that they have invited her back ! It was lovely to see how confident a reader she is and her visit really sums up what the reading challenge is about. Well done and thank you !
Our Digital Captain team are busily working on ideas for Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 5th February. We are looking forward to updating you on our plans but in the meantime here are a few posters for parents/carers to support staying safe online.
On Friday we launched the next chapter of the Building Resilience programme-‘Respect Yourself.’
In this unit we will cover:
There is no-one quite like me
Everyone has different strengths
I treat myself with respect
During the assembly we discussed the differences between us, the fact that we are all unique. Some primary 6 pupils shared their experiences of Dalguise and outlined their strengths in different activities.
We also listened to a story called ‘Zero,’ which explores value and self-worth. Click on the link below to hear it!
There is some new Home Learning which looks at what makes us special. This is due back in school for Friday 8th February.
The Parent/Carer leaflet below will share anything further you’d like to know about this term’s unit. Please also have a look at the slides from Friday’s assembly for you own information.
Primary 2 have been finding out where Scotland is by learning to use an atlas. We have also been reading Scottish stories and our favourite so far has been “There was a wee lassie who swallowed a midge ” by our very own favourite author, Kate McLelland ! The children have also been designing their own tartan and they are looking very colourful.
Primary 2 have continued to enjoy learning about the Celts. This week the children were challenged to build a round house using construction materials. The children then made a roundhouse using a cylinder and a cone and wrote instructions.
We are all excited to be back in school after the Christmas holiday. We all look forward to a busy and enjoyable year ahead. We started off our term by writing stories on the just ended holiday . We worked individually ,in pairs and then in groups to write interesting accounts of things we did over the holidays. We each choose an interesting event which happened during the holidays and wrote a descriptive account of it. Some of us wrote about Christmas Day ,some about activities they attended and some about the lovely presents they got from Santa! We then worked as a group to assess the Success Criteria and scored each other marks. We tried hard to use the tips Lari Don , an award winning Scottish author, has taught us, to make our stories fun and engaging. All of us scored good marks, well done to us! We then chose group editors to help us look through the stories we wrote, to make sure mistakes were corrected. We will do a lot of peer collaborative work this term.
Working together made the writing task more fun , we all liked it. Each group then made a book by putting the stories together , choosing a title for the book and writing a Contents page and a little blurb. We have put up some photos of us working on our stories. You are welcome to come into P6 to read our Holiday Pages ! What an exciting start of the term!
