On Friday 24th September it is the Macmillan Coffee Morning. The coffee morning will start at 10am to 12pm at Macmerry school in the hall. We are doing this because we want to help and raise money for Macmillan cancer support. Come along it will be fun with coffee, tea, biscuits and cakes.
P2/3 have been working on their topic the Seashore and Habitats. We have been looking in books and on the internet to find out information. We have found out about sea creatures living in shells. You can find them in rockpools. We learned that anemones usually but not always live in warmer water. We even practised our handwriting in a fishy theme.
We had lots of fun learning about the environment at Newhailes. We went to the book festival too and met Julia Donaldson and a Gruffalo.What a great start to P2/3.
This has been a busy week for Ms. Murphy’s P.4/5 class. They have been doing art work for book covers, learning about spines, ISBN numbers and how to write a blurb on the back cover. They have also been busy doing maths learning about digits and all about zero. The class also enjoyed going to The Book Festival, listening to the author and buying books at the end before coming back to school.
On Thursday 9th September 7-8 pm there is a welcome meeting at Macmerry Primary School. There is a chance to meet the teachers and discuss the year ahead. Everybody is welcome and if you have children in different classes you can see both teachers because each teacher has two different sessions.
This week P1’s now stay at school all day.In maths P2 are studying numbers to 20 and P1 are up to 5. they went to see Julia Donaldson at the book festival and met the Gruffalo and other characters.
