ELPS SIP 2021 Sep
Initially our top priority is happy and settled children – and the children have done themselves proud returning to school with really positive attitudes and ready to learn after being away for so long.
This year our school improvement plan has a strong focus on Literacy as a key area we wish to review and improve. There are also other areas of school development that we have carried on from last year.
If you believe you can help support any area of development in any way , please so get in touch !
Bear fun at the Botanics on PhotoPeach
Update from this morning’s post….So the secret word we learned was SWAF. It stands for all the things bears (and us) need to survive. S for Shelter, W for Water, A for Air. Everyone had a great day playing games and exploring the gardens in the sunshine.
Video to follow!
The excitement is building! Kevin Long Legs was first to appear at school with his flask, ready for the trip to the Botanics. We will be learning a secret word when we get there….watch here for an update!
The gardening club have been very busy weeding, planting special flowers that help bees, planting vegetables and tidying the playground. A huge thank you to Mrs Dorrian for all her help! Today we made some transient art, inspired by Andy Goldsworthy!
[nggallery id=48].We have had a very busy week in P1/2. On Monday we had a visit from The Catherine Wheels Theatre Company who performed their play Stuck. It was a thrilling and physically dynamic show performed in a boat in the middle of the school hall, the children were amazed at how the school hall was transformed into the ocean with all the sealife around them. On Wednesday we had the opportunity to do some den building in the playground. We worked with our P5/6 buddies in small groups and had lots of different materials to make anything we wished. We had some fantastic structures and great fun. The children want to do this again soon!!! On Friday we had a visit the Science Festival at Dunbar we seen a bubble show and learnt a lot about solids, liquids and gases. Also on Friday we had Red Nose Day everyone looked great in their red outfits and we raised a lot of cash for good causes by buying red noses and lovely cakes.
