P3A December Update

We have had a busy term and wanted to tell you a wee bit about it. We worked in our              Co-operative Learning teams to write our comments.

We have been learning about the moon changing shape. It doesn’t change shape but the part we can see does. The sun is bigger than the Earth and you should not look right at the sun. We visited Dynamic Earth.

We are learning about space and the Christmas story. We are also learning Scottish Country dancing in P.E. and we danced at our party today. We are loving P3! We are especially liking    Co-operative Learning and we enjoyed our trip. We are very fast at the daily mile.

We went to Dynamic Earth and had fun, we went to the dome. The Christmas performance was fun and good because there was nice singing and everyone was good at the French song. In science we learnt that the sun is bigger than the Earth.

We have been learning dancing with Mr Ferns and you have to go in a couple and hold hands. At daily mile we run fast. We’ve been working hard in our Co-operative Learning groups.

We have been doing maths, we learn about add, take away and times. We have buddies every Thursday. We did science about space. We know that the moon goes round the Earth and the Earth goes round the sun. We have had Circle Time about respect. We do daily mile, we try to do six laps of the big playing field. We do dancing in P.E. with Mr Ferns. We went on our school trip in November. We went to Dynamic Earth.

P3B Visit Dynamic Earth

P3B had a fantastic trip to Dynamic Earth to enhance their learning on our Science work, focusing on weather and the Sun, Moon and Earth.

We were led on a tour around Dynamic Earth, exploring how the Earth began and some of the different climates around the world. Then we completed some activities in  our Wonderful Weather workshop, where we learned more about tornadoes, thunder and lightning and the water cycle.

Newspaper Stars

Regular readers of the Evening News may have spotted some familiar faces in Monday’s edition.  Well done to Neve and Megan Balfour who were cheering on their dad in the Edinburgh 10k.  He was running in support of Sands Lothians.

Welcome to P4A

We have had a really busy start to the year.

In Maths we have been adding ten and multiples of 10. We have also been rounding to the nearest 10 and 100. We have played lots of games to help us learn.

We have been writing diary entries and creating eye catching posters to advertise castles and houses in East Lothian for tourists.

In Social Subjects we have been learning about East Lothian. We have been finding out what jobs people did in the coal mines. If we were alive in the 1800s we would not be at school but would probably be trappers in a mine. We are all looking forward to our trip to the Mining Museum next week.

Thank you for reading and keep checking back for regular updates.
