On Monday 3rd of March, P4a and P4b went to the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. Our topic in school is Ancient Egypt so we wanted to find out more about it. During the day we looked at the Ancient Egypt displays on floor 3, we took part in a workshop and we had some spare time to explore the rest of the museum. We thought it was exciting because there were lots of things that were new to us. We had a great day!
Our November newsletter went out yesterday – please check school bags!

Last year, with your support, Windygoul Primary School successfully sent over 100 shoe boxes to children in other countries as part of the Operation Christmas Child Appeal. We are looking to be involved with this appeal again this year, but with a shorter timescale for our challenge!
Your child will have brought home a letter today outlining what is required within the shoebox and when the box has to be handed in to school. We are aiming to put together a shoe box per class, with the children donating a variety of items. Please find a copy of the letter below incase it has not made it out of the school bag and a link to the Operation Christmas Child website.
Today P4A were investigating how toys move. We looked at a number of toys, old and modern, and had to predict how they would move. We used lots of verbs to describe the movements. After we had made our predictions we tested to see if they were correct. We then recorded our findings in a table. P4A learned about forces and friction.
As part of P4′s topic on East Lothian we have been learning about mining. Our class were shocked to hear that very young children used to work in mines. We were also fascinated to hear that miners took canaries down the mines to check for poisonous gasses! Mr Bonner came to our class on Thursday to talk to us about life as a miner and we asked him lots of questions. We had a great time learning about his experiences.
A letter has gone out to all children today to be returned by Tuesday 16th April with your preferred day for Parent/Carer Consultations with staff on Tuesday 23rd and Thursday 25th April.
A copy can also be printed here by clicking the link below (just incase it didn’t make it home to you!)
All appointment times will be issued on Friday 19th April.
Today P1c and P7b got together to share their favourite books. They spent some time reading to each other and discussing the reasons for their choices and why they liked the characters. Here are some comments from the children about the activity:
Olivia P1c said “I like Sleeping Beauty, it was written by Brothers Grimm.”
Caitlin P7b said “I was impressed with the P1 costumes, they were very creative.”
Craig P1c said “I made a model of Topsy and Tim at the swimming pool. It was fun to make.”
Sam P7b said “I liked the story of ‘The Gruffalo’s Child’ it was the best P1 story!”
Photos to follow….
This model was made by Zara, Jaime and Eve.
“Mrs Ferrier gave us a challenge to make a 3D model of The Last Supper. We learned about the Easter Story and then we had to make sure we showed everyone who should be at The Last Supper. We really liked creating the food and the drink on the table and working out how to make our model 3D.”
