Bit of a catch up going on here but “recently” we were very lucky to be invited down to our East Linton Library as part of Book Week Scotland, where we met Heather and the Team and received our P1 Book Bug goodie bags.
While we were there we learned about the library and how it works as well as getting a few stories read to us and a bit of a sing song!
A lovely day and we hope the first of many visits to our lovely library!
Since then we have shared the stories in class and had discussions surrounding them, as well as listening to the authors read them online. We voted for our favourite and One Button Benny was clear winner across P1.
This week P7 have completed their topic of WW1. On Friday, we invited our parents to join us for a WW1 street party to celebrate the end of WW1. We shared our newspapers that we had wrote about the end of the war, our propaganda posters and our soldier portraits. We decorated the classroom in a street party style and made bunting, banners and party hats. We brought in some food to complete our party and played WW1 style games with our parents. We then got our parents to try our WW1 quiz on the laptops. Some questions were a bit tricky!
Please find below a link to the minutes from the November meeting of the Parent Council. Our next meeting is Tuesday 11th December, starting slightly earlier than usual at 6pm. All welcome!
