Last week, on Thursday, 15 December, the whole school had a panto afternoon. The Nursery, Primary 1, Primary 2 and Primary 3 enjoyed a production of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ in the the school hall. Some bits were scary but it was fun all the same.
Primary 4 and 5 travelled to the Brunton Theatre in Musselburgh to see ‘Aladdin’. It was very funny and we even saw two of the Primary 4 boys on stage dancing. They were really good!
Primary 6 and 7 went to the King’s Theatre in Edinburgh to see ‘Cinderella’. Both classes had a great time and were amazed at the fantastic costumes and scenery.
Wonder what the panto will be next year?
Happy Christmas to everyone at St. Martin’s. Have a lovely holiday and I hope you all get the present you ask for. Be kind to your families and friends and try to be helpful at this very busy time of the year. On Christmas Day try to say a prayer to the Baby Jesus to help those people who may be feeling sad or lonely.
See you all in January. Happy New Year 2012!!!! From Mrs Sharp X
Primary 3 had a wonderful time performing in our school Nativity last night. We really enjoyed singing all of the songs and reading out our parts. Well done to P.1 for their excellent acting and to P.2 for the beautiful singing. We hope that you enjoyed the show too! 🙂
Congratulations to Primary 1,2 and 3. Your Nativity Play in St. Martin’s Church certainly deserved 10 out of 10. It was brilliant! You made everyone who saw you feel very happy. I loved every bit of it. Not long till Christmas now. Hope you all have a great holiday and a very happy and holy time.
The boys and girls in Primary 3 have been very busy with their learning. Just like Primary 6, P.3 chose the Dinosuars as their mini topic. They really enjoyed finding out the different names of dinosaurs and how they lived all those years ago. P.3 had fun using the laptops and fact books to research information. They also made some scary dinosaur masks during art. Take a look at the pictures outside our classroom wall, can you guess who they are?
This is a reminder for all P1, P2 and P3 parents/guardians who would like to come along to the classroom on Monday 10th May at 1.30pm – 2.15pm to join in with a reading lesson.
You will have the opportunity to see how your child learns to read, you may even get some tips that you can try at home with your child!
Please fill in the slip that your child will come home with today and return it to your child’s class teacher by Friday 7th May.
If you have already attended a session but would to come along to another then please fill in the slip and we’ll see what we can do. Perhaps mum has come before but dad would like the opportunity to come then don’t hesitate to ask. Places will be given on a first come first served basis.
I’ll be in touch to let you know if you have a place.
The next reading session that will take place in P1, P2 and P3 classrooms will be on Tuesday the 4th of May at 9.00 am to 9.45 am.
If there are any more parents that would like the opportunity to come along to the classroom and see your child learning reading in the class then please speak to me (Miss Gilhooly) and I can organise that for you.
P3 have started a new topic this term, the Ancient Egyptians! Already we are finding out lots of interesting information and facts about the Egyptians and P3 have been involved in planning what they want to learn about the Egyptians. If anyone has any resources that you think may help us in our learning then please bring them into school. They can be used to help bring the topic to life and help make our display look even more exciting for all the people in the school to look at and learn from.
P3 have settled nicely back into school after our amazing Christmas holidays. We have started a new topic all about how we look after ourselves and our pets. We are working in groups to find out about different pets just now and we are going to tell the rest of the class all the things we have found out about by giving a presentation to the class. We are creating our own wall displays in the classroom so that everyone can see the work that we are doing. Very soon we might even be going on a trip to find out even more about how other people look after pets that do not have a home. If any member of your family or your friends have any expertise in how we should look after ourselves and our pets then please let us know, you are very welcome to come into the class to tell us all about it!
