Please join us for our Garden Glut Coffee Morningon Friday 14th October from 10:00 to 11:30. The children in our school “Charities Group” have decided to try and raise money to help starving and diseased people in Africa.
The children would like to ask for donations in return for teas, coffees and home baking. They are also hoping to sell any garden produce, so if you have any spare fruits, vegetables, jams or chutneys they would be very grateful if you could send them into school nearer the time to sell. They would also like some home baking to go with the teas and coffees.
If you are ina any way able to help, the Charities Group would be very grateful! Please pop in to see us on the 14th if you can!
If you have a look at the black bar at the top of the page, I have created a new Learning Story called “Nursery Buddies.” I will post all the activities and photos we do together over the year – make sure you have a look every now and the to keep up to date!
We had great fun today, dressing up as our favourite Roald Dahl character or in yellow (Roald Dahl’s favourite colour.) We joined everyone else in the assembly hall to hear from Sarah, who works for the Roald Dahl’s Charity.
She told us how all the money we gathered would be spent. It will help seriously ill children in Britain. Did you know there are Roald Dahl nurses in hospitals all around the country?
The children from the “Charities Group” organised a fashion show and chose 2 children from each class as winners.
Can you guess the characters?
Next we had a visit from Lennox the Library Lion who came to say well done for reading so many Roald Dahl stories. He came into our classroom at Golden Time.
Since we have been making calendars, the children in Primary 2 have been learning how to spell the days of the week. Some of the words are quite tricky to spell. We made detailed word diagrams to help us, then had fun using extra furry pipecleaners to make the letter shapes for each word.
All words start with a capital letter and we have learned how to join our writing to spell the "day" part of the word.
Primary 2 have been learning about time. As well as telling the time on analogue and digital clocks, they have been learning about days of the week and the months of the year. They have decided to make a calendar for the class too!
We are looking for special dates or celebrations to put on our calendar. Please help your child find out the date and month of their birthday and write it on a little bit of paper. The Primary 2′s will make sure it’s included on the calendar.
Homework for Primary 2:
Please could you find out the following dates for our calendar?
St. Andrew’s Day
New Year’s Day
Easter Day (2012)
We’ll put photos of our finished calendars on the website soon!
This was one of the questions the children wanted to answer!
In Whole Class Reading today, we had a look at the RSPB Youth website to try and find some answers! Please make sure you have a look in the big green jotters the children took home today to find out more! (I apologise – Primary 2 did not take their jotters home….they are still sitting on my table because I forgot to give them out! I promise to send them home tomorrow!)
Just to let you know, a letter was put into scholbags on Tuesday about Parents Night. It needs to be completed and sent back into school as soon as possible. If you don’t manage to return the letter, you may not receive an appointment!
As part of our Transition Process, we are hoping to work with the children in the Nursery throughout the year. (Primary 1 parents may remember we did lots of this last session to ensure the transition from Nursery to Primary 1 went as smoothly as possible.)
Like last year, we are going to give each child in Primary 1 or 2 a Nursery “Buddy” to work with over the year.
Our first transition activity will be Thursday 29th September, when we will be going out around the school grounds on a nature walk. We are hoping to collect some interesting things which we can use back in the classroom to make pictures – look out for photographs later in the week!
Please could you ensure that your child has suitable outdoor shoes and a warm coat for this activity?
