We Love Reading!

After a busy week, it’s great to relax in the library with a good book.
We picked books and spent time looking at them with our friends. We used the pictures to help us tell the story and looked for some keywords.
To finish off, Mrs Jamieson read us a story about Hairy Maclary, the dog from Donaldson’s Dairy.

Dinosaur Stomp


Posted by Jen Jamieson | Posted in Expressive Arts, Health and Wellbeing | Posted on 18-09-2014

Great excitement in gym today! We are learning a Dinosaur Stomp dance which we are going to show to our friends in Primary 6 next week. We watched this film on the big screen in the hall and learned the moves. The children were keen for me to put this on the website so they can teach the grown-ups at home!

Happy stomping!

Learning Areas

I’m sure the children have told you that their favourite parts of the day are Learning Areas and Golden Time, where they get to “play!”
In fact, the different areas in the classroom are designed to allow the children to practise and reinforce what they have been taught.
…….and here is the proof!
