As part of world of work week primary 4, along with other classes, enjoyed visits from three parents. Jessica’s dad, Jamie’s mum and Nicholas and Tamsin’s dad came to talk about their work. All the talks were very interesting and certainly made the children think about their future careers. Many thanks to the parents who came in, it was a great experience for the children.

A massive thank you to Beth the fire fighter who visited nursery today to talk all about her job. The nursery children were very excited to have such an important visitor as part of their learning about people who help us.
P4 today started their recorder lessons – great effort everyone! Mrs G
P1 have been learning about self portraits and have drawn their own. We used mirrors to observe our faces and made a plan of the colours we would need to use for the different parts of our faces. We developed our maths skills by recognising shapes. We can name our facial features and we learnt about colour recognition. We had to carefully follow steps in a sequence to create our portraits. We learnt how to blend pastels to create the shades we needed for our skin tone, hair colour, eyes and lips. We have created a beautiful gallery to display our self portraits.
P5 have had another busy couple of weeks!
We have been having a very sporty time lately and last week we were lucky enough to take part in a karate taster session and also to practice our golf skills with Kate Green. We have also been working hard on our fitness by completing a specially designed circuit in the PE hall twice a week.
We have been finishing up our space topic and had lots of fun in the playground building our own solar systems out of different objects and making ourselves into a moving solar system model.
In literacy we have been working on our note taking skills and also learning about persuasive writing techniques. This week we wrote some great letters trying to convince our parents to buy us pet dragons or unicorns.
In maths we have been working on two-step word problems and also looking at 3D shapes and their nets. Today we worked in groups to complete a special Children in Need challenge and made some great 3D Pudsey models!
Here are some photos of the last two weeks in P5.
We’ve raised a fantastic £211.46 for Pudsey – thank you everyone!
We were all superheroes today helping to raise money for Children in Need. The teachers faced the ( surprise!) challenge of turning a paper Pudsey into a superhero assisted by some pupils at assembly - well done everyone – great fun for a fantastic cause!
The boys and girls and staff of East Linton Primary all paused for two minutes complete silence today to remember all those who fought and worked in the wars.
