Poisson d’avril

Image result for why do people celebrates les poisson d'avril






The children in Primary 1 and 2 will be learning about how children celebrate April Fool’s Day in France ‘Poisson d’avril’ next week.  Unfortunately they are on holiday on the actual day – 1st April.  Children in France make little fish which they attach secretly to their friend’s backs.  Chocolate fish are exchanged as gifts.  The link below is a lovely little cartoon where popular French character T’choupi celebrates this tradition.


‘Spy Dog’ Competition

As you know, one of our Dunbar Unplugs & Reads community books is ‘Spy Dog’ by Andrew Cope.  We contacted Andrew to let him know and he kindly signed a copy of ‘Spy Dog – Gunpowder Plot’ and ‘Spy Cat – Blackout’ for us to give away!









Your challenge…

Find a copy of ‘Spy Dog’ in the community with the Dunbar Unplugs & Reads sticker on it and tweet a photo to @DunbarPrimary or e-mail the school (admin@dunbarprimary.elcschool.org.uk) with the subject ‘Spy Dog Competition’.  Miss Eeles will take a note of all the entries and organise a draw on Friday 26th May. 

All pupils from Nursery – Primary 7 can take part.

Good luck on your search!

P4 Outdoor Learning

Primary 4 visited Lochend Woods this week to take part in some outdoor learning activities. They worked in teams to find materials suitable for creating a sculpture, a den or a pattern.

Take a look at some of their creations!
