AMAZING READING DISPLAYS on PhotoPeach
All the classes at Campie have been very busy creating reading displays for our corridor.
If you’d like to see them in real life, come and join us on Thursday 17th September for Reading Softstart in all of our classes.
It was wonderful to see so many of our families in school last night. The school was buzzing with excited children eager to introduce their families to their teacher and share the spaces that they come to learn in every day. It was a lovely, informal opportunity to meet with everyone and take time to look at the displays and resources. The staff team hope you found it as valuable and worthwhile as we did.
Many thanks to everyone who came to help us walk down to the Brunton Hall yesterday to view the ‘Aviva Tour of Britain’. Despite the wait it was very exciting to see the cyclists zoom past!
It is very exciting that such a large scale cycling event is coming to Musselburgh, and we want to ensure that the children are given the opportunity to be involved.
The race attracts some of the world’s best known cyclists, such as Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins. The event is televised daily live with a highlights programme each night on ITV4.
On Wednesday 9th September 2015 the Tour will be coming to Musselburgh and we’ll be there to see it!
We will be walking as a school to view the Tour from our designated space on North High Street, just outside the Brunton Hall.
The nursery will leave at 9.00am and the P1-7 children will leave at 9.15am.
We need lots of adults to walk with us. If you’d be able to join us to walk to our viewing are and enjoy the race with us please contact the office.

P5A visit Edinburgh Book Festival on PhotoPeach
P5A had great fun at Edinburgh Book Festival yesterday.
We listened to Nicola Davies. She spoke about her love her nature and wild animals and some of the travels she has been on. She even showed us some ibex poo….! Then she read from her new book, ‘The Leopard’s Tail’. It sounded so good, we bought it and one about a manatee too.
She certainly inspired us to read her books and find out more about endangered animals and how we can protect them.
We Love to Read Together on PhotoPeach
Our ‘Reading for Enjoyment’ focus got off to a great start this week.
We are all reading with buddies from other classes, it is great fun to read together.
We are learning about our favourite authors and discovering a few new ones.
“You can have magic wherever you look,
Sit back and relax,
All you need is a book….” Dr Seuss
We will be launching our reading for enjoyment focus on Friday. The children will gather in the hall: P2/3, P3 and P4 at 9.15am, N, P1 and P2 at 10am and P5, P6 and P7 at 11am. Please join us if you can.
We’ll be starting the session with a ‘Reading for Enjoyment’ focus.
Research shows that reading for enjoyment is a very important skill for children that can have a positive impact on all their learning.
We will be buddying up with other classes to read, we will be ‘dropping everything and reading’, we will be sharing our favourite books and stories. Some of us will be visiting the Edinburgh Book Festival and we’ll all be visiting Musselburgh Library soon.
We’d like as many different people to read to the children as possible. Would you be willing to read to a small group of children in school one day?
Please contact Miss Robson at school if you have any questions…
