Today the children in P1D followed up on one of their favourite stories ‘Pumpkin Soup’ by making soup. They enjoyed drinking their soup in the school garden and it passed the taste test!
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.
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.
