Playtime in the snow

Mrs Campbell and the children had so much fun yesterday at playtime and lunchtime.

SNOW!!

WE ARE OPEN

It is very cold and white outside but the roads all around school have been well gritted and seem clear. Jim the janitor is out with his snow shovel right now clearing the pavements. As always take care when travelling to school in this wintery weather and we hope to see you wrapped up warm at 8:50am. Image result for snow clipart

Have You Registered?

Is your child eligible for free school meals, and if so, have you registered?
Schools receive additional funding of £1,200 from the Scottish Government for every pupil in P1 to S3 who is registered for free school meals. This is called Pupil Equity Funding, and schools use this additional money to help fund a wide range of initiatives to support achievement and provide the best possible opportunities for children’s learning.
 
How do I know if my child is eligible for free school meals?
Please visit our website www.eastlothian.gov.uk  to check your eligibility and download an application form.
 
Even if your child does not wish to take up the option of having a free school meal every day, we would encourage you to register so that your child’s school will receive the Pupil Equity Funding allowance to support their learning.

P 3/4 Happy New Year

What a fantastic start to the New Year we have had in P3/4.  The children are full of enthusiasm and great ideas!

We are currently working on a novel study, ‘The Fish in Room 11’ which we have discovered is actually about a mermaid.

Today we created large drawings of Toby, one of the characters, by very carefully drawing around some of the children in the class.  The children had to listen carefully to the description of Toby to produce an accurate drawing.

We also painted a background for our windy day pictures which are also inspired by the first chapter of the book.  I will post the finished pictures next week.

Christmas Cheer

Mrs Campbell has been busy working with the children to decorate the playground for Christmas.

Christmas Lunch

We had a FAB time today at our Christmas lunch. There were crackers, carols and smiles all round 🙂
