P7 Transition Question and Answer session with DGS Guidance Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers,

Next week P7 are taking part in a question and answer session with Mrs Scott, guidance teacher at Dunbar Grammar school on Google Meet. This is an opportunity for the children to ask questions regarding transition to high school. This is part of the P7s transition process and essential for their move to high school. The children have been asked to send me their questions by Monday lunchtime so I can pass them on to Mrs Scott ahead of our meeting. The class is split in to two groups so that there is an opportunity for their questions to be answered.
Surnames B-L
Wednesday 10th June 10:30am-11:00am
Surnames M-Y
Wednesday 10th June 11:00am-11:30am
Google meet is a video chat website used by schools across the cluster. This can be accessed via phone, Ipad or computer/ laptop. To access google meet, the link is at the top of our P7 google classroom and it will be also shared in hangouts. The children do not need to speak but Mrs Scott is hoping to put some faces to names before the children move up to high school.
Any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Kind regards,
Miss Warrender

But, most excitingly, it is our virtual sports day all week! You have until Friday to upload your scores and times to make sure your team is in with a chance of winning!

Here is an overview of our week and a suggested timetable for each day:Weekly Overview 1st June

Primary 1 – Week Commencing 1st June

I can’t believe it’s June already and there are only 4 weeks left of this school year! Where has the time gone? You have all grown so much, physically and in your learning capacities. Let’s make the most of these last few weeks in P1.

For the next couple of weeks our learning will be centred on the story of ‘My friend the weather monster’. Once again, I have had great fun planning the lessons to accompany this story and really hope you will have just as much, if not more fun using them to explore your learning.

Monday is a very special day where we celebrate and thank our grown-ups for all the things they do for us.  Being a parent is tricky at the best of times, but recently, when many of our grown- ups have had to juggle so many different things as well as help us with our learning, I think we have an even bigger thank you to say to them. So, along with our timetable for the week, I have also attached some suggested activities that you might like to have a look at to give you some inspiration for things you might be able to do to show your grown-ups just how much you love them and to thank them for all that they do.

Looking forward to seeing you in the classroom,

Mrs McDonald.

Primary 5 “Stay at Home Camp Week”! 20th-22nd May 2020

Hi Primary 5 and your Parents and Carers,

As you all know this was the day we were supposed to be leaving for our Innerwick Experience. However the world had other ideas so instead I have planned a few days of activities we can enjoy and take the change to recharge our batteries. Our health and wellbeing has never been so important as it is at the moment so I hope you take this opportunity to take a breath and enjoy doing a few things that are different from what we have been doing over the past few weeks.  Enjoy!
