Great excitement in school today for Red Nose Day – thank you for your support ! We all learned at assembly about where our donations go, as well as having a bit of fun! If you would like to recycle your red noses you can bring them back to school or take them to the customer service desk at any branch of Sainsburys.
At assembly we again celebrated those who have gone “over and above” and those who have shown the Learning Power of Respect. Leaflets about our Learning Heroes have gone home in school bags this week.
It has been another busy week. P1, P4 and nursery are all very focused on being Eco warriors just now, with some amazing learning and collaboration happening.So far we have saved over 100 plastic bottles from use from Friday packed lunches – well done P1-3 families! We are about to install a compost bin in the playground for all those apple cores and left over bits of snack at playtimes.
P1s and P5s have been out and about in our village exploring sustainability issues.
P7 complete their level 1 Bikeability training today , with P6 starting on Monday – we are very grateful to our parent volunteers and to Philppa Barber from ELC Outdoor Education team for helping to make this happen. Our friends from Belhaven Bikes are coming in again on Monday to safety check P6s bikes.
On Tuesday I had the great pleasure of watching our P4s at their swimming lesson – so wonderful to see skills and confidence growing with each and every one of them.
Mrs Gibson has been to a conference looking at the use of technology to help our learners and we are experimenting with a trial of a new writing support app over the next week or so. Miss McKay and I attended a briefing on the ELC policy for assessing and supporting children with additional needs.
Our nursery staff received another very positive visit from our ELC support officer. We are looking forward to welcoming back Mrs Purves on Tuesday morning.
Next week Miss Stewart will be taking full responsibility every day in P2 – we thank Mrs Gibson for teaching P2 on a Wednesday.
As a staff we carried out a moderation of progress in number session, looking at evidence gathered of children’s progress and how this enables us to make sound professional judgements https://twitter.com/EastLintonPS/status/1106476998778589184
