Dunbar Grammar School Christmas Show

REMINDER:

Dear Parent/Guardian

The Primary 7 pupils have been invited to the Dunbar Grammar School Christmas Show on Wednesday 17th December.

The show starts at 1pm so the classes will need to bring a packed lunch on this day. If your child receives a free school meal we will provide a packed lunch for them.

The show will finish at 3.10pm and we would like to dismiss Primary 7 children from the Grammar School at this time. We always feel this is a good opportunity to dismiss them from the secondary school as part of the P7 – S1 transition programme.

If your child brings a scooter, bike or ripstik to school on this day then they will have to walk back to Lochend Campus to collect it.

If your child attends After School Club on a Wednesday then they will walk back to Lochend Campus with a P7 teacher.

Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns.

Christmas Lunch

Having fun during our Christmas lunch!

Bible Brainiacs host Friday’s assembly!

A big well done to all the P7′s who led the Lochend Campus Assembly on Friday. Brave Daniel C kicked off the assembly by interviewing judo silver medalist, Steph Inglis. We even got a close up view of her medal! Amy M and Amy P then announced all of our lucky Stars of the Week. Mad scientist Finlay K and his wacky sidekick Conor G then went on to show us an experiment about the true meaning of Christmas. They reminded us all that sometimes the biggest present may not always be the best and we should take the time to appreciate the gifts we receive and time we have to spend with our families at this time of year. They ended their assembly by singing the catchy song, ‘Waiting for a Surprise!’

It takes a lot of courage to stand up in front of all 17 classes. Well done to you all – what a great achievement!

P7 World of Work Event 2015

World of Work 9th – 13th February 2015

P7 parents & carers received a yellow ‘World of Work’ letter home on Friday 21st November. 8 people have signed up so far and we have some speakers coming along from last year’s event. This means we are still looking for 4 more speakers.  Some will speak to the whole year group and others will speak to small groups (choice of speaker).

Please complete the form if you are able to spare some time during the week to come in and talk to the children about your job or contact me at the school (01368 860 997) if you need more information.

Thank you,

Miss Eeles

P7 Peer Assessment

The P7 classes gathered together this week to showcase their WWII individual projects and peer assess them. The pupils really enjoyed the chance to share their fantastic work with the year group.

Peace Pole Service

It’s been another super day in Primary 7! The year group walked up to St Anne’s Church for the Peace Pole service to sing songs about peace and read out a selection of Remembrance poems.

P7 Assembly

We were very proud of the P7 year group on Friday! They have been working so hard in class learning about WWII and Remembrance and were able to share their knowledge with Lochend Campus at the weekly assembly.

Take a look at some of the photos below:

Dunbar Grammar School Information Evening

Dunbar Grammar School would like to invite P6 & P7 parents & carers to a Curriculum for Excellence evening on Thursday 20 November 2014 from 6 – 7pm.

The purpose of the evening is to update parents & carers on the many changes which have taken place and their plans for the future regarding the Broad General Education Phase (S1 – S3) and the Senior Phase (S4 – S6 Qualification Phase).

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.

P7C VE Day Celebration

All primary 7 pupils enjoyed participating in a special VE Day celebration today. We made our own patriotic rosettes, had a visit from a man who lived through real-life air raids and jitter-bugged our way through the morning! They certainly looked the part in their WW2 costumes! Back in the classroom we enjoyed eating some WW2 treats made by the pupils. Thank you to everyone who contributed. Finally we were interrupted by a very unexpected air raid siren and had to grab our gas masks, heading to the shelters beneath our tables. What a day!
