We get challenges for each class to do and then after a couple of week time we bring it back to assembly and show it to the whole school. We also do award assemblies that parents come to in every 3 weeks. In assemblies we sing lots of different songs. We add peoples ages up when it`s their birthday.
At assembly this this week P7 told us all about camp and we shared all of the things we love about our school. Parents came to the our assembly on Wednesday for awards.

Although the weather hasn’t really been very nice recently we have still been learning all about Spring and Minibeasts at Nursery. We had a discussion in the story corner about what we knew about Spring and Minibeasts then decided what we would then do to learn more. We have made a Spring Garden display, put out puzzles and jigsaws to do, we put out stories, books and posters to look at, the listening centre is out with the stories ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and ‘The Very Busy Ladybird’. We have been making minibeast windchimes, butterflies and ladybirds. We have made a minibeast house with Mrs Gray in the school garden and we are watching to see what insects are crawling about. Lewis’s mummy has brought in some tadpoles and we will look after them, watching them turn into frogs soon! We will be finishing off our topic with our summer trip to The Butterfly World which we are all looking forward to – not long to wait now!

Wow what a lovely surprise on Friday morning… Rohan arrived to tell us she’d been looking up tricky words in the dictionary. Sam had brought in his iPod touch to show a photo of a symmetrical grouping he’d created. Emilia had made a monster origami bookmark for Natasha like the ones we’d made in class – Happy Birthday. Jessica had arrived with sketches from home on top of which she’d scratched a design and she’d brought her mini lamp to show us the detail. Finlay had brought some superb observational sketches from home, following on from the art session we had on Thursday and with his sister Maja they had arrived with homemade friendship bracelets for the class, something that Maja had taught me to make during Golden Time this week. After we’d shared these things as a class people chatted about looking at millilitres and litres on milk cartons and there had been lots more sketching going on too. Thank you everyone for sharing your own home learning, I must be the luckiest teacher in East Lothian.
Next week Monday 13th – Friday 17th May it’s “Walk to School Week” and Nursery is taking part. As in previous years so the children can take part we will form a “Walking Bus” leaving from the bus shelter just outside the park in the village. Please meet Mrs Elliot and Mrs Dalrymple down at the bus stop at 9.00am and we will walk up to Nursery from there with our “Walking Bus”.

P1/2 started exploring gathering and displaying information.
Finlay – We looked at colours of hair. We had to wite down colours and then we put some tally marks on how many there were.
Eva Scott – We added them. We checked together we had it right.
Robyn – We put over some pictures the number for each colour.
Thomas thought it was quite good.
Charlotte thought it was fun.
Isla thought it was great fun.
Finlay thought it was easy.
I wanted to say thank you for all your kind words and messages today. The school will always be special to me in many ways. I wish you all the best in the future.
One last message from me….. The tie count now stands at 24!
Enjoy the holiday weekend!
