Joyeux Noël

1+2 Languages

Thank you to all our volunteer parents for attending French training this morning.  We look forward to welcoming you into classes very soon, supporting our youngest learners in P1-3.

Sheilagh Fallon, PT Modern Languages (Dunbar Grammar School) and Lucy Hare (P1D Class Teacher) will be running a drop in session on the first Friday of every month from 9.00-9.30am in the John Muir Campus Library.  The drop in session is for P1-7 parents and grandparents looking for advice and resources to support French and German language learning at home.

Grandparent’s Day

Thank you to all the Grandparents who came to Grandparent’s Day in P1D.

We practised our sounds and made mirrors as a follow up to the story ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’.  When the children looked in the mirror they saw ‘My reflection’ (Ava), ‘A special person’ (Oscar) and ‘A kind person’ (Bea).

The grandparents admired the Autumn wreaths we made yesterday and after they left we planted bulbs and bedding plants in our planter in the school garden.

European Day of Languages

European Languages Day 2017 was a bit hit with the children today at the John Muir Campus.  Thank you to the P3s for serving at the French snack trolley with the support of our regular snack trolley volunteers.  Lots of children ordered their lunch in French and were rewarded with a European Languages Day 2017 sticker.  In the P3 playground at lunchtime children chalked European flags and even answered sums written in French!   Look out for the display of language books at Dunbar Library.  Thank you to everyone who supported the event today.  Madame Hare (P1D).

European Day of Languages

Children at both campuses will be celebrating European Languages Day tomorrow.

There will be a French themed snack trolley at both campuses selling pain au chocolat and brioche priced 20p each in addition to the usual snack trolley offerings.  Children will be encouraged to order their lunch in French with European Day of Languages stickers and wrist bands for children who make that extra special effort to use their language skills!

Dunbar Library are kindly supporting the event by having a display of language books all week for the children to borrow.

There is a French workshop for P1-7 parents the following week on Wednesday 4 October, 2.15pm at the John Muir Campus led by Sheilagh Fallon, PT Modern Languages (Dunbar Grammar School) covering French greetings and numbers.  Please return slip if you plan to attend to either campus office by Thursday 28 September 2017.  Merci!
