P1 – Mrs Henderson/Miss Higgins

It’s World Book Day!

We hope you are having lots of fun playing in the snow but don’t forget today is World Book Day!

Children across the country are enjoying World Book Day. There are lots of games and stories to watch on the website

Mrs Henderson was going to dress up for World book day. Can you guess who Mrs Henderson was going to be?

Here is a clue…Her favourite colour is red!

Try some of these activities at home to celebrate World Book Day…
– Draw the character you think Mrs Henderson was going to be. Think carefully about what this character wears and what setting this character may be in!

– Draw a picture of the character you were going to be dressing up as. Add lots of detail to your character and try to draw a setting in your picture.

– Who is your favourite book character? Can you write a sentence starting with the tricky words ‘I like…’. Don’t forget your finger spacing and full stop at the end of your sentence.

– ‘Share a Story’ – Can you share a story with an adult at home? You could read them a story and then they could read you a story. Talk about the events in the story you like or don’t like.

Have fun!

Thank you so much to all our helpers for coming in and helping the children to make shortbread. The children loved taking part in this activity and it would not have been possible without all your help so thank you very much. We hope you enjoyed tasting their lovely shortbread at our open morning.

Thank you also to all those that were able to join us on Friday morning for our Assembly and Open morning. The boys and girls worked so hard to learn their parts for our Assembly and we are very proud of how well they did.

The Gruffalo visits Longniddry!

Measure on PhotoPeach

Primary 1 and 2 got a huge surprise today after playtime. There were giant footprints on our classroom carpet, the Gruffalo had visited our classroom! We measured his footprints and found out they were 20 cubes or 40 centimetres long. We then measured the length of our own feet using cubes. The Primary 2’s measured their feet in centimetres. We found out that two of Ruairidh’s feet were the same size as the Graffalo’s! Super measuring P1/2, well done!

Primary 2 and Primary 3 had great fun at their Christmas party yesterday. They made some sparkly party hats and all looked fantastic in their party outfits. They enjoyed playing games, dancing, having a party snack and best of all having a visit from Santa! We hope that they all have a great Christmas and that Santa visits them all on Christmas Eve!

  1. Loved the pictures of the kids! I thought I saved a message yesterday when I click on the photo, but it hasn’t appeared… I am not sure if you got it. Please keep posting!

  2. Good to see the November photos and their visit to Dynamic Earth. The week diaries on here, are good for daddy to see as he misses the list in the class window. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Sylvie is very excited about the Christmas show! She loves Donkey Plodding (so does Mummy!) and can’t wait to sing all the songs to the parents and families next week.
