We urgently need new foster carers in East Lothian. Fostering with East Lothian Council means great support, great training and a good financial package. More importantly, as part of our fostering team, you’ll be doing something fantastic, helping children and young people from East Lothian to stay in East Lothian, close to the people that are important to them – helping them to feel safe, loved and nurtured in your home. Do this for East Lothian children in need. Foster East Lothian!
P1 had a great time yesterday with the opening of their toy museum. They took their roles as “tour guides” very responsibly and were able to tell P2-P7 and parents all about their exhibits. They were quite tired by the end of the day and were happy to learn that they didn’t have to do their jobs for ever, every day!
This year P6/7 have been taking turns as class photographer to help capture our learning. We have already taken some great photos so far this term and would like to share them with you. Our topic this term is Electricity and Energy and we’ve made a start by creating circuits and posters about electricity safety.
At the beginning of term we finished our class novel, “The Person Controller” by David Baddiel. The class loved this novel and it showed when they took their AR quiz and all got onto the 25,000 words section of our AR rocket! We have also tried to do some personal writing about our proudest moments and focused on patterns in maths.
We have been practicing passing and pivoting in benchball.
Groups working together to make circuits.
We finished reading the Person Controller!
Some focused writers on a Monday morning.
The beginning of our electricity safety posters (we’re still adding colour).
P1 to P7 worked in vertical house groups to help each other learn through the MAD day at Macmerry! (Macmerry Activity Day). Here are some photos of the leaf art they did with me yesterday. There were some fantastically creative ideas with the leaves from our playground!
