P1/2/3 have had a successful first week at running their French themed Snack Shop. Please remember to bring 50p every Monday up until the Easter holidays to purchase a snack. All money raised will be going to our chosen charity, the RNLI.
Well done to everyone in P1/2 for a fantastic performance in “Bee Green” yesterday at East Linton.
Today the children from Nursery up to P5 enjoyed sharing their French learning with their families and friends. They performed a showcase of their favourite French songs and games learned throughout the year, whilst the audience enjoyed refreshments served with croissants and pain au chocolat.
Thank you to this year’s French assistant, Cylia, and to Madame Swan who taught us how to say the words correctly and helped to generate a keen interest in learning French throughout the school.
We all look forward to continuing to learn French next session.
Today, P1/2 enjoyed their first rugby session with Callum and Salad. We look forward to two more sessions. Let’s hope the sun continues to shine!
Some more pictures from the third rugby session.
Today we enjoyed a visit from Sally who works for “Farm to Fork,” which is based at The Hirsel. She told us all about the crops which are grown on the farm there and showed us pictures about different farming activities that happen around the year. We were also able to identify different cereals by looking closely at their heads.
Finally we helped to prepare some tasty porridge which we enjoying eating with a lovely selection of toppings. Thank you very much to Sally for making our learning so interesting and relevant!
Last Thursday we had a fantastic trip to Broxmouth Park. We were learning about the story of a local place of historical interest. The Battle of Dunbar took place here and Oliver Cromwell made it his headquarters. Queen Victoria also visited and planted a cedar tree in the grounds in remembrance of the battle. Many thanks to Mr and Mrs Flame for their hospitality and informative and entertaining tour.
During Book Week Scotland (23rd – 27th November), children throughout the school took part in lots of book-related activities. Some of these were:
• Visiting Dunbar Library and learning how the books are organised, and given the opportunity to borrow a book to read at home.
• Dressing up as a character from a book.
• Sharing our favourite books with our classmates.
• Discussing the features of a book.
• Enjoying lots of stories together – some of them read and some of them listened to.
• Parents sharing their favourite books during a whole school story-telling session.
• Buying lots of books from the Scholastic Book Fair which was held in school all week. Thank you for your support. With the commission, we have been able to purchase new books for each classroom, and some sets of readers for different reading levels.
• Choosing our own books to read for homework each night this week.
• And much more…..!
