We had a fantastic morning taking part in a ‘danceathon’ to raise money for Comic Relief. Both primary and secondary danced non stop for half an hour… we did the Macarena, toe tapped to Cha Cha Slide and showed off our Flossing skills! Well done to all the pupils and staff who took part.
Group 6 have been very busy this term. They have been enjoying stories and rhyme time. During cooking they have used different equipment to measure – spoons, scales measuring jugs and cups – and different food preparation techniques – peeling, slicing, cutting and mixing. The children have enjoyed using different technologies and have been participating in household chores, next term we hope to make snack, lay a table and invite a guest to join us……watch this space. The children have been playing a variety of board games and physical activities. Cycling on the Go Kart and the swing are both popular activities.
Group 6 wish all the other children, staff and families a happy Easter and we will see you in Term 3 – hopefully a sunny term 3 😉
Thank you to Leah, Christopher and Luke for sending in their Snow Day photos. They look fantastic. Your prizes will be sent home next week.
Thank you to our friends at Waterstone’s in Livingston who exchaged over 70 of our Book Day tokens for new books to use in Pinewood. These will be used in Language, the school library and for our new homework bags. Well done to Group 8 who collected the books today.
There were lots of things happening in different classes for Scottish Week – lots of art, cooking, food tasting and music! The primary had a fantastic time at their Scottish Celebration Ceilidh and the secondary did a fabulous job of running a cafe on the Friday.
Class 2 and 3 had the pleasure of visiting Bramble Cottage – a new play centre in Blackburn. The pupils had a great time; sliding down the shoot, dressing up in different costumes, using the climbing wall and role playing in the shop and kitchen. Check out our photos to see how much fun it was! We can’t wait for our next visit.
Class 6 have been busy learning about the new topic ‘Finding Dory’. After watching the film we have been exploring ‘Under the Sea’. We have been also enjoying Blue Planet 2 and watching the fish and other creatures.
We bought the ingredients to make fishcakes and fish pie. The children enjoyed smelling the different fish – mackerel, tuna and salmon. We mashed the potatoes and chopped spring onions. Dipping the fishcakes into the egg and breadcrumbs was very messy!
We had a fantastic visit from 2 African Drummers from “Live Music Now”. The pupils really enjoyed listening to listening to traditional African songs, watching and joining in with dancing, as well as having a go on the drums themselves!
