P1-3 Homework for next week

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

PC Smith visits Primary 1!

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!
