Bookbug Week 2015

As you may know 18th May – 25th May is The Scottish Book Trusts …


Tomorrow we will be getting involved by tuning in to a live steam from the BBC with author of Jumblebum and Loon of the MoonChae Strathie. (This can also be caught on iplayer if you want to watch later at home.)

There’s lots of things you can do to get involved at home. Click here for some information about BOOKBUG WEEK and how you can get involved.

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all the parents and carers who helped out with the bake sale today…. Whether it was baking, helping man the stall or coming along and spending some money. We really appreciate the effort that everyone put in.  

P1/2 enjoyed helping to sell the cakes and the work P2 have been doing on counting in 10’s came in really handy when working out peoples change.

We don’t yet have a grand total raised but as soon as we do I will let you know!!

imagesWUMSQIYEOne of the things we are learning about this term is growing. Today we looked at what we know about growing and what we want to know about growing. It seems quite a lot of people know that plants and vegetables grow but not many people seem to remember that people and animals grow. We are hoping to learn about how seeds change into plants and how caterpillars change into butterflies!



Today we completed our star assessments for Accelerated Reading. We all did REALLY well and as a result we will be getting slightly more challenging accelerated reading books in the future! We are all so excited to be moving on to new books filled with fab places, characters and stories.

We will also be voting tomorrow on a class novel which we will read altogether. We will have the choice of a few Roald Dahl books. Hopefully we can get outside into the quiet corner to listen to a fantastic story in this beautiful weather!

Pots of Care

As you know on Wednesday 1st April we are celebrating YELLOW day to help raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Months ago when it was very cold we planted bulbs. Now they have grown into beautiful flowers. We have decorated slips for our pots to make them bright and colourful.

We will care for our daffodils just like the Marie Curie Nurses care for their patients.

Spring Artwork

The winter FINALLY seems to be retreating and making way for spring. Today we are making some bright and colourful spring flower pictures and we are working on some other spring artwork using some natural materials. We can’t wait to share the finished products with you all!

Ormiston Grows

We took part in a whole school project to make wormeries with Liz and Tim from Ormiston Grows! Some of us didn’t like the idea of touching the worms …EEWW! We can’t wait to look at them in a few weeks to see how the worms have mixed up the different materials.
