Thank you to all the Grandparents who came to Grandparent’s Day in P1D.
We practised our sounds and made mirrors as a follow up to the story ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’. When the children looked in the mirror they saw ‘My reflection’ (Ava), ‘A special person’ (Oscar) and ‘A kind person’ (Bea).
The grandparents admired the Autumn wreaths we made yesterday and after they left we planted bulbs and bedding plants in our planter in the school garden.

European Languages Day 2017 was a bit hit with the children today at the John Muir Campus. Thank you to the P3s for serving at the French snack trolley with the support of our regular snack trolley volunteers. Lots of children ordered their lunch in French and were rewarded with a European Languages Day 2017 sticker. In the P3 playground at lunchtime children chalked European flags and even answered sums written in French! Look out for the display of language books at Dunbar Library. Thank you to everyone who supported the event today. Madame Hare (P1D).
Children at both campuses will be celebrating European Languages Day tomorrow.
There will be a French themed snack trolley at both campuses selling pain au chocolat and brioche priced 20p each in addition to the usual snack trolley offerings. Children will be encouraged to order their lunch in French with European Day of Languages stickers and wrist bands for children who make that extra special effort to use their language skills!
Dunbar Library are kindly supporting the event by having a display of language books all week for the children to borrow.
There is a French workshop for P1-7 parents the following week on Wednesday 4 October, 2.15pm at the John Muir Campus led by Sheilagh Fallon, PT Modern Languages (Dunbar Grammar School) covering French greetings and numbers. Please return slip if you plan to attend to either campus office by Thursday 28 September 2017. Merci! Madame Hare (P1D)
There will be free pétanque taster sessions at the School Fair on Saturday. Our volunteer parents who help with French at the John Muir Campus will be on hand to help you learn how to play. Please drop by and give it a go!
The children at the John Muir campus enjoyed French snack trolley so much this morning we are going to continue serving brioche and pain au chocolat until the end of the week. Mrs Fallon (PT Modern Languages, Dunbar Grammar School) came along to serve at the trolley and was very impressed with the children’s language skills.
Following the success of the French themed snack trolley at John Muir Campus earlier in the year it is back! Brioche and pain au chocolat will be available priced 20p each in addition to the usual snack trolley items on Tuesday 23rd May. Our French puppets Jacques and Lucette showed what will be for sale at assembly this morning.
