Ancient Greek Learning Day on PhotoPeach
The children thoroughly enjoyed showing everyone around our Ancient Greek exhibition last Thursday and Friday. On Thursday we welcomed pupils from each of the classes. The children were able to share their knowledge and artwork with their friends and family and also watch videos of drama performances. I think we also had a few inpromptu battles going on with our class made swords and shields!
Thank you to all the parents, family and friends who were able to join us on Friday morning for our Learning Event. Again the children really enjoyed sharing their learning with you. We really appreciate the kind comments and thank yous that we have received.
This week we have begun learning about our new topic – Sound. We have thought about what we already know and would like to learn. On Tuesday we went on a sound walk around the school and playground, recording different sounds we could hear. We plan to use this in our poetry.
Next week we will be reviewing and setting new targets in our Learning Logs. As a result, the children will read in groups on Monday and reading will be set for the following week. Thursday’s reading slot will be replaced with Learning Log time.

I hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday despite the cold weather. This week we have been busy putting the finishing touches to our Greek Learning event. The children have performed and videoed their drama sketches and look forward to presenting these to you. We plan to use the P2/3 area to share our learning, since all 3 classes are involved. We look forward to welcoming you there next Friday at 11.15am.

Thank you so much for supporting our Red Nose Assembly and Bake Sale. We raised £99.64 to add to the school total. Fantastic!

Literacy Week in P2 on PhotoPeach
This week marks the end of our Greyfriars Bobby topic. I know that some of the children have managed to visit Bobby’s statue and the Kirkyard. Tomorrow we will be working with clay to make 3D models of dogs. I’ve asked all the children to make sure they have a painting top in class to save their clothes and would be grateful if you could help them with this. We are very luck to be welcoming a visitor from the SSPCA into our class next week, who will be giving us some hints and tips on caring for your dog/pet.
We look forward to beginning our next topic, Ancient Greeks.
