P3s are settling very well into their new classroom and school routines.
Mrs Gilmour can’t believe how grown up they all look and how much they have learned 🙂 since P1. It has been exciting to meet the new members of the class.
Here are a few photographs of what we have been busy with.
P3 had a mucky morning before break working with paper mache. The hope is they will each all turn squidgy paper into a Wilbur piggy bank to take home. Some loved the feeling of gluey hands, others thought it was “yucky!” Also, we recognised some faces in the paper we were using too!
They also had a visit in the afternoon from Mrs Payne from(National Youth Choir of Scotland NYCOS) who did some singing games and rhymes with them. The P3s sang really well in the games and impressed our visitor. Well Done P3! The children had letters sent home about FREE classes being held in The JM campus Dunbar Primary on a Thursday. It looks fun.
P3 had an excellent visit to Newhailes Musselburgh last week to take part in “The Green Scene” workshops. These were workshops run by various groups on environmental subjects organised by The National Trust. Each workshop had a group of 4/5 children who were assigned as reporters. Their task now, is to report what they have learned and to share it back home in the class. They are working on posters to help them this week.
Yesterday we had a lovely visit to the Art Exhibition in the Community Hall. Thank you to Zoe who accompanied us there and to April and Lorna who kindly gave up their time to talk to the children about the paintings. All the children chose their favourite painting, discussed what they liked about it and some looked up the catalogue to see how much it would cost! They were very good and learned about using “Gallery voices”
P1 made backgrounds for their animations today. Here is one that Fergus and Joseph made.
