If you’re looking for some book recommendations for older pupils, our P7s created a list at the start of the year:

P7 Leavers Dance 2017

Thank you to all the parents, carers & family members that came along to watch the musical and join in with some of the dances on Wednesday!  It was lovely to see you all & we want to thank you for your support throughout the year.

If you have any photos from the performance and/or the dance, please feel free to tweet them to @DunbarPrimary – all P7 pupils have permission for their photograph to go on the website and twitter.

You can see some of the photos from Wednesday night below (and also some video clips on twitter!).  Thank you to Richard Taylor for the photos!

Accelerated Reader Millionaire Club

Wow!  We have 77 A.R millionaires this year!  They all met with Miss Eeles to celebrate their success and talk about their favourite book this year.  We all came away with some great recommendations for over the summer!

Being an A.R millionaire is a huge achievement and they should all feel very proud of their effort this year.  Some of the older pupils have reached TWO, THREE and even FOUR million words!!

 

Mathletics – Gold Achievement

Mathletics – Gold Certificates 2016 – 2017

In 2015 – 2016 we had 44 children achieving a Gold Mathletics certificate and this year we have 51!

They all gathered together to celebrate their success and talk about what they’ve enjoyed learning in maths this year.  The top three answers:

  1. Fractions
  2. Multiplication
  3. Area

It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to achieve a Gold certificate in Mathletics.  Well done!

 

Cheerleading Transition Session

The following post comes from: http://www.activeeastlothian.co.uk/news/cheerleading-transition-is-a-roaring-success-1879

In term 3 Active Schools worked with Miss Stalker from Dunbar Grammar School (DGS) to deliver children to the Dunbar Cluster Schools. Miss Stalker takes the DGS Cheerleading squad and wanted to give children in P7 in the cluster an introduction to cheerleading.

For 4 weeks during curriculum time Miss Stalker delivered cheerleading to 200 pupils at Dunbar Primary, Innerwick Primary and West Barns Primary. Miss Stalker then straight after school ran a cheerleading club for P6-P7 children in the cluster. The club attracted 12 girls aged between P6-P7 and through the club coaching by Miss Stalker the girls learned routines and performed Stunt Cheerleading. The club performed in front of 600 pupils at Dunbar Primary School. The girls were outstanding with only 4 weeks practice under their belt.

Through Active Schools and Miss Stalker working we have enabled children to experience cheerleading and start a pathway for them to participate in a sport. This also links up the Primary and Secondary Schools through new partnerships working. One of the big advantages now is when the children go up to DGS they will recognise a familiar face in the staff at the school. This will help the children settle in to grammar school life quicker because they will feel comfortable in their new surroundings. Children who have participated in cheerleading at primary will be able to continue on with the sport because of the strong club they have at DGS.

Quote from Miss Stalker “I have enjoyed working with all of the P7 pupils. It is fantastic to see both boys and girls interested in learning about a sport in which I am passionate about. They all picked up Cheerleading very quickly and I am so impressed with the level of dedication and effort from every one of the pupils I have worked with. I hope to see this enthusiasm continue when they come up to Dunbar Grammar School.”

Active Schools and the Dunbar Cluster schools would like to thank Miss Stalker for her hard work and dedication on delivering such a fantastic opportunity for the P7 children within the cluster. This will continue as a strong transition event for years to come and we can’t wait to see it go from strength to strength.
