Our Friday morning Family Learning Workshops have been going well. Parents have enjoyed coming into school to find out more about supporting their children with learning. A big thank you to all the children and parents who have been involved so far. The children were impressive as they demonstrated their Maths and Reading Skills, and well done to some of our younger children who showed their parents how they learn about letter names, letter sounds and in particular vowels. This morning’s workshop allowed Dads to work with their children to create a bird box with some very successful results.
Many thanks to DadsWork for coming in to do the workshop with us – everyone enjoyed it.
We have been growing potatoes and carrots in the nursery garden. These were ready to be eaten so we went out to dig them out of the soil. The children had great fun finding the potatoes from the soil and pulling the carrots out.
Yesterday we visited Primary One to read them the story that we all wrote together called The flying boat. We all enjoyed this when Mrs MacDonald read this to everyone. The children in Primary One had all written their own stories and we listened to them. This was good fun. We are learning about stories having a beginning, middle and end.
