Great excitement in P1D today – we had the wall bars out! Lots of lovely forward rolls too!
The next 1+2 Languages drop-In session for P1-7 carers, parents and grandparents will be held in the John Muir Campus library 9-9.30 am on Friday 2 March 2018. The theme will be using French in morning routines.
Sheilagh Fallon, PT Modern Languages and Lucy Hare, P1D Class Teacher look forward to welcoming you to the session.
Mrs Hare and a P1 parent are in the early stages of setting up a link with Dunbar’s twinning town primary school in Lignieres, France.
The children sent us some pictures from their recent Christmas celebrations – note children in France don’t wear school uniform!
We hope to send them some information about Dunbar and exchange some Easter artwork later in the term.
Ruth, one of our former pupils, kindly spoke to the children at John Muir Campus about her experiences of using French in both Morocco and Dunbar’s twinning town in France.
She carried out a variety of jobs whilst in France including working in a dog parlour, café and senior citizen’s residential community to improve her language skills! We wish her well as she continues her language studies.
Many thanks to parents who attended the 1+2 Languages Drop In Session this morning. The focus was fruit names.
Our next drop in session will be on Friday 2 February 2018 in the John Muir Campus Library 9-9.30 am and is open to all P1-7 parents and carers. The theme will be weather vocabulary. Support and resources are also available for any aspect of French and German language learning during the session.
All of the teaching staff are using the fantastic East Lothian Languages Platform which is really user friendly.
Yesterday some P1 children wrote about La Fete de Rois (Three King’s festival). Can you spot the child under the table shouting the name of the person they want to get the first piece of the galette (crown cake) on the table and the king and queen for the day?
