We have again had some amazing pieces of homework in this week. We have had some fantastic eat well plates which detail what healthy eating has been going on as well as some amazing superhero stories, comics and characters! Well done everyone, brilliant effort!
We have also been very lucky to have a visit from Keryn’s Dad this week who is a nurse. Keryn’s Dad works with people who are blind or have problems with their vision. We had created questions for him in partners and we loved hearing all about his job. He also brought in different glasses so we could experience what it was like to have our vision impaired. Thank you so much for coming in!
Next week (beginning Monday 19 November )is Scottish Book Week and to mark this event all the children in P1-3 will be given a special bag full of lots of exciting activities .Primary 1 bag is a Book bug bag similar to the one the children received last year in nursery. It contains some books and activities to share with your child .Primary 2 and 3 have a Read ,Write and Count bag with books and games to play .Each pack contains a leaflet for parents with lots of ideas as to how to use the pack. As there are so many great activities in the packs we have decided to make this the focus for homework next week. It would be appreciated if you could spend 10-15 minutes each evening working on the activities in the pack.
Our new Read ,Write Inc. sets begin again on Wednesday and no homework will be distributed for this next week

Lots of prizes were won, crazy costumes were out on show and everyone who attended seemed to have a great time celebrating and raising money for Children In Need.
We ran out of to count an exact total because there were so many coins, but we know it is several hundred pounds raised! We will update you on an exact total on Monday.
Great job everyone, and thank you.
P7a should be proud of themselves for the responsible and nurturing display they put on, as running an event like that for the whole school isn’t easy!
Primary 1 have been learning about ‘People Who Help Us’ and ‘Emergencies and Risks’.
This week PC Smith came in to chat to us about his job. He explained how his main role is to keep everyone safe whilst also showing us the different parts of his uniform and he even let us go in to his police van. The sirens were very loud and we all agree that it would NOT be nice to sit in the lock up.
We have shared some pictures of PC Smith’s visit.
Our trip to Musselburgh Library is on Monday 19th November. We are leaving school at 9.15am and will be back by around 11.30am. Please remember to wear your jacket and sensible shoes for our walk to the library. Thank you!
