Our Learning This Week.

This week we learnt a number of interesting things .

We learnt about 3D shapes, I learnt Toblerone tube is a triangular prism. I learnt the difference between 2D and 3D shapes.

In RME, we learn’t the Pope is the head of the Catholic church and he was born in Argentina.

We went to an athletics festival, we did a lot of different activities we hadn’t done before like long jump and relays

In art and to do with Mary Queen of Scots, we drew a picture of a young Mary when she lived in France.  She had four friends with her all called Mary. (That must have been complicated.) Mary Seaton, Mary Beaton (they rhyme), Mary Livingston and Mary Fleming.

We also learnt Roman Numerals, they used letters instead of numbers. Here are a few I is a 1, V is used for a 5 and X is 10. Most of us are VIII.

Have a great February break.

Expressive Arts After School Activities

I wish to inform you of an exciting, new, after-school Arts Programme which has started in Pinkie St Peter’s Primary School in partnership with East Lothian Council Arts Service. All pupils are encouraged to attend a weekly programme of arts activities run by specialist tutors, enabling skills development in the following areas, music, dance and drama.

Studies have shown that regular participation in organised arts activity is linked to raise educational attainment and improved health and wellbeing in children. Every pupil at the school has been allocated a place on the programme. Pupils are allocated one day and one activity by the school for the 2018 autumn term. Each new term, pupils will change activity so that they are able to experience all three art forms over the course of the academic year.

All activities are offered free of charge.

We currently still have spaces available in the sessions listed below. If you have not already signed up to one of the activities and would like to attend please collect a form from Nurture Room 2.
