What a fantastic effort P4 made for World Book Day this year. Well done everyone on your fabulous A-Z activities. We had decorated eggs and cakes, puppets of characters, hand made board games, drawings of front covers and favourite characters and lots of sharing of books and stories which are precious to us. In class we had a character description quiz which really tested the memories of books we read when we were much younger and we had a comprehension scavenger hunt to find our information about the history of World Book Day. This raised the question of who was the greatest writer Shakespeare or David Williams? It was such a lovely afternoon we even managed to get outdoors for a read. More days like this please!
P6 have started a reflection carousel on a Friday as a way to reflect back on our learning during a week. One group each week will have the chance to write a post for the blog and Miss McKay will post this the following week. Below is our first reflection…
P6 have had a busy week. In Writing we have been doing our Big Writing assessments so we can get our new targets and we have started writing our stories for the BBC 500 words competition. In Numeracy we have made posters about our learning on fractions, decimals and percentages as an assessment. In Art we drew and labelled a brain to link with HWB. We have also been learning about strategies to cope with stress in our home teams. In ICT we presented our learning about how to be healthy and we also did surveys. In RME, we have been sharing what we believe in and discussing that we have a choice. We have moved our Spelling from afternoon sessions to morning sessions. This is working well because we are more focused. Our rule this week is ‘sc’.

After a exciting return to school in August, the children have been continuing to work hard to develop their learning powers. Here are some of our Learning Heroes so far this year. Please now keep up to date weekly on our school Twitter page @EastLintonPS! :0)
Today our second level pupils – P5,6 & 7s – worked together in trios to reflect on their learning this term and to plan for their next steps. We encouraged our pupils to see the progression in the learning in their assessment jotters – as individuals and across the three classes. Well done everyone!
Our first Pupil Focus group used the Think, Puzzle, Explore thinking routine to make some plans for our playground – some fantastic ideas!
