P7 Maths Mini Project

This week in Primary 7 we started our maths mini project where you plan an end of year excursion. We were separated into groups to complete the task.  It has been hard to find different types of information and all of the groups are working hard. We had to figure out the cost for travel and the activity we have chosen, make a healthy snack and each day filled out our feedback sheet for everyone else our group.

When working on World War 2 we made Propaganda posters in art. Continue reading “P7 Maths Mini Project”

Head Lice

Head Lice:

We would like to ask all parents/carers to check their child/ren’s heads at least once a week. Parental vigilance plays a vital role in keeping the spread of this problem under control.

 We no longer can send letters to particular classes where parents have made us aware of an outbreak but can only continue to remind parents to check their child’s hair on a regular basis. If going uncheck it can easily spread throughout the family, as well as children continuing to be re-infected in their particular class/ stage.

I know treatment can be expensive , especially if you need to treat the whole family but I believe if you register with a pharmacist you can be issued with the correct treatment free of charge but please check this with your own GP or pharmacist.

Filling each others buckets with kindness!

Today we had our class assembly about filling each others buckest with kindness. Jenna

We all had our assembly today all the practising was worth it. We confidently performed our best in the different parts of the assembly about treating others kindly. – Erin

Yesterday we had a maths assessment to see how we were doing in time. – Gemma

I enjoyed doing assembly cause I liked doing the songs to the class. – Georgia

The school football team have a game today – wish us luck ! – Tom

In maths we were adding fractions and it was tricky to start with but we got better at it with practise – Cameron

The assembly went really well. It was very interactive which went down really well. Sophie

Our Christmas Show

This week we performed our Christmas show and sang our hearts out. It went super well and our audience were amazed. All the actors and actresses remembered the lines really well especially Maia  who had so much to learn. Every class were fantastic and performed really well.

We are still practising our songs so we can sing them at Tesco next week. We also sold our baubles at the Christmas Show. You can still buy the baubles if you bring in £3 next week.

We wrote our  final draft of Titanium in literacy and it went very well. We have learned how to upscale our sentences and words and to use the show and not tell technique. We have also learned how to use the different tactics from our slow writing. We have discovered how to write a story without being really repetitive. We are going to display our writing so feel free to come and have a look. Continue reading “Our Christmas Show”

We are now in the process of delivering taster sessions for the NYCoS singing groups to all P3 classes (and some P5s). if you have not already had yours, you will be getting them soon!
I have had some enquiries from parents who say the link isn’t working in the email that has gone home and I am also finding some children haven’t had forms. Would it be possible to send this message out again to all parents? Thank you.
 
“Bookings for the National Youth Choir of Scotland Singing groups are now being taken. P3 children will have had or will be having a taster session in school. Please follow the link on the information leaflet that comes home to register BEFORE Tuesday 19th December, or click www.eastlothian.gov.uk/nycos
Choirs are open to all P3-P7 children. If you don’t have a leaflet, please click the link above for all information or contact cmcmillan@eastlothian.gov.uk

Thanks all – we won’t turn anyone away who does just turn up to a group without having registered, but we’re trying to encourage registration in advance.
