In our IDL topic we have been learning about making Scottish bread and making castles from paper using collage.

In music with Miss Fletcher we have been singing Scottish music and we were also watching a film about a boy and a bunnen and a troll and the cat and the gran.

In ICT we have been drawing shapes on Jamboard.

In numeracy we have been skip counting in 2s and 3s.

In literacy we have been using Fred Fingers for reading and writing.

In maths we have been drawing shapes and seeing if they fit together.

In music with Miss Fletcher we were singing ‘You canny shove your granny off a bus’!

Written by Mrs Lockhart-Ross:

Primary 2 have been very busy this week starting lots of new learning. In addition to above, we have been exploring non-fiction books and beginning to write facts and opinions. The writing has been tricky but it is something we are going to keep working on. We have been labelling parts of a castle as part of our topic and in ICT we can now log on independently, type on Google Docs (changing font, colour and other fancy things) and now send our work to the teacher. We are also really enjoying our class novel ‘The Water Horse’ by Dick King Smith.

term 4 plan

Here is our plan for this term to keep our learning current, active and fun – look out for the learning grids coming for each one!!


Emergency Provision for Keyworkers Update

The First Minister has just reiterated that following the closure of schools, childcare being established in each local authority is emergency provision for frontline keyworkers where there is no-one else in the house to look after your child and no other alternative. East Lothian will be opening a small number of Children’s Hubs but we need to ensure that those parents who really need a place get it. Please help us and don’t apply for a place unless it is absolutely essential. We are required to keep numbers in the hubs to an absolute minimum and will be prioritising Category 1 keyworkers in the first instance.

Every day is a learning day!

Every day is a learning day! We had a busy staff development session this week.

Mrs McDonald led us all as we looked at how French and German are being taught in school – we looked at the feedback from our pupils too and all the teachers made a plan for their class!

Working together, we looked at how we plan for learning and teaching. We shared good ideas and asked questions of each other to improve experiences for our learners. We used the Connect, Extend,Challenge thinking routine.

We used Chalk Talk to explore the ELC Pedagogy Placemats – we asked ourselves how do they match our practice and ethos in school? What can we learn from them?
