Well I don’t know what happened to my P1 today, none of them turned up?!
But instead I had the fabulous treat of lots of our favourite book characters coming to East Linton P1 instead!
The register was fantastic this morning, we had Tinkerbell and Princess Anna, the Big AND Small Skeletons from Funny Bones, The Tiger who came to tea and Aerial the Mermaid! The Room on the Broom kind Witch and Daisy Artichoke! We even had the odd superhero flying in, Supergirl next to Anne of Green Gables, Cottontail and Horrid Henry, Dogs and Pirates along with Rapunzel and her looooooong multi-coloured hair, a Ship’s Captain to Harry Potter, Jasmine even brought in her sheepdog Skye, Charlie managed to sneak away from his Chocolate Factory and James came without his Giant Peach, thank goodness or there wouldn’t be any more room for the Enormous Crocodile!
We had a great day and week, celebrating all the books we love reading, discussing and writing about our favourite characters, sharing our favourites and recommendations with the class, today’s mini book swap was fun and to hear the different discussions and descriptions too.
So thank you for the wonderful effort of costumes and bringing in special books, it was a fantastic World Book Day!
Miss Grierson and P1 🙂
Good morning everyone!
Hope you are all safe and warm! Your teachers have been working hard during these snow days to plan some fantastic learning for you , so hopefully we will be seeing you all on Monday.
P4-7 – hope you are doing lots of lovely reading – remember to use ARbookfinder online to check if a book is on AR.
p1-3 – carry on with any reading book you have or enjoy a comic or magazine.
We do hope you have been getting creative in the snow – send us your photos so we can put them on our blog!
Take care everyone.
Mrs G 🙂
Happy 2nd Snow Day P1!
I hope you’re all staying safe and warm, going out all wrapped up and making fabulous snowmen, going sledging maybe too and having hot chocolate to warm up again and keep you toasty down to your toes!
So as you know today is World Book Day, I’m busy planning some fun activities for us when we’re back in class. On Tuesday we were talking about our favourite books, so why don’t you spend some time choosing yours, curl up reading with your people at home, talk about their favourite books when they were in P1, and if your grown ups say it’s ok you could bring your favourite book in to school and we could all show and share them for the day!
In the meantime stay safe, no slipping on the ice!
And I’ll do the same,
P1 have been having a very busy time over the last few weeks. We had lots of fun working with Mr Watson and all wish him lots of luck when he moves on to his next school.
In maths we have been working on our numbers and practicing sharing out objects into equal groups. We have also been looking at 2D and 3D shapes with Mr Watson.
We have been working really hard on our reading and have read lots of different books. We are now busy learning our digraph sounds and practicing writing words and sentences ourselves.
There are lots of exciting things going on at school at the moment. It is Book Week and we had a trip to the library on Monday then spent some time during the week getting to know the stories from our book bags. Today we voted for our favorites and were very excited to get to take our book bags home with us.
We have also been working hard on our nativity play for next week. We have had lots of songs to learn and are doing really well at remembering where to move and what to say. On Thursday we tried on all our costumes ready for the dress rehearsal and performance next Wednesday.
Here are some photos of us over the last few weeks.
P1 have had a busy last week of term. We’re all looking forward to the holidays then coming back to share what we’ve been up to.
This week we were talking about the changing seasons and some of the children remembered that you don’t get many flowers in autumn and winter. We decided to make some flower pictures to hang on the wall to remind us of summer. We used collage for our vases then drew our flowers carefully trying to use different types of line in the middle of each flower. We coloured them in bright colours and they’re looking really great on the wall.
We also had a fantastic workshop from the kind people at the museum of flight. We had lots of fun following Sophie on a journey to the other side of the world in a biplane and even all got to make our own model biplanes to take home.
We hope everyone has a fantastic holiday. Here are some photographs of our week.
