Well done to Lucca and Duncan for being awarded the 5 Star Gold Award last week.
Lucca was given his for always being ready and enthusiastic to learn.
Duncan was given his for settling into Class 1 so well and being super brave in the deep end at swimming.
Well done boys!
Mrs Beattie is out of school undertaking some science training on Friday. Class 2 will be taken by Mrs Reid and Mrs Shepherd. Therefore, there will be NO toast on Friday.
Class 2 will have tennis as normal and I believe this will be the last week.
Due to Class 1 having swimming on Thursday afternoons, all children will now have PE in the morning.
In order to save time in the morning we have asked all children, if possible, to come to school with their kit on underneath their uniform.
Class 1 will have PE from 9am – 10am
Class 2 will have PE from 10am – 11am
This year, Class 1 have re-registered to take part in the Scottish Engineering Leaders Awards. We need to answer the question ‘If you were an engineer, what would you do?’ As with previous competitions, the children will need to find a problem that an engineering solution could solve, then draw a design, annotate it and write an accompanying persuasive letter.
If any parents or carers know of an engineer who could spare some time to come into school and talk about/ share information on their role, we would be very grateful. Ideally, we would love a visit in the first couple of weeks in March, as the deadline this year is Wednesday 27th March.
Please contact myself, Mrs Beattie or the school office if you have any queries or are interested in popping in.
Just a couple of reminders for Classes 1 and 2:
Class 1 have taken their PE kits, swimming bags and water bottles home to be cleaned and checked.
Letters have gone out to oldest and only about our upcoming STEM curriculum evening- please return any completed slips as soon as possible.
We hope that everyone has an enjoyable long weekend, and we look forward to seeing the children back on Thursday 21st February 🙂
P3-4’s fantastic Padlet, all about hygiene and healthy living. The children shared some great tips, and made some very informative videos demonstrating how to wash your hands, hair and how to brush your teeth properly. P1-2’s super collage will be ready to show very soon. We’re looking forward to showing more of our work with parents and carers at the STEM curriculum evening.
On Thursday mornings, Class 1 do some learning with Mrs Reid. Today, they had lots of fun performing the story of ‘A Brave Girl’, which they had previously shared together.
The story is all about a real girl called Grace Darling who lived in a lighthouse near Northumberland. The children had to act out Grace’s brave attempt to rescue the survivors from a steamship that had run aground. A great chance to practise their acting skills, as well as their understanding of the story events. Well done Class 1 🙂
