We have been very busy! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

Toy Afternoon Tomorrow

As an end of term treat, Class 1 and Class 2 are invited to bring in a toy or game from home to play tomorrow afternoon. This is of course entirely optional.

We kindly ask that no phones, tablets or delicate items are brought in as the games and toys are to be shared with pupils of all ages.

Remote controlled toys may be brought in, however we will be staying in the classroom so space may be an issue (something to consider).

See you all tomorrow!


Winter Wonderland Party

Just a reminder that tomorrow afternoon is our Winter Wonderland Party from 1pm- 3pm.

Children may bring a change of clothes with them if they wish to change. All children should arrive to school in school uniform as normal.

If the children would like to bring in music CDs for the party they may do so.

Party food will be eaten in Class 2 and all children will be dismissed at 3pm as normal.


Class 1- Ice Balloon Fun

This afternoon we gathered items to create our own polar habitat, including our ice balloons to use as icebergs!

We loved spending time playing independently, and took our learning even further by having lots of important discussions:

  • What temperature should the water be and why?
  • Why do the ice cubes and ice balloons change colour under water but become clear again when we lift them out?
  • How did the Titanic sink?
  • What should we do for the polar animals that need to live on land?
  • How can we make sure all of our animals stay afloat?

Some really wonderful exploration and problem-solving, all led by the children. Well done!

Last 5 Star Gold Award of the Term

Today we had our final assembly of the term, and we were very pleased to give the 5 Star Gold Award to Donald and Shiloh.

Donald received his award for the amazing effort he puts into all his learning, no matter what the context or location.

Shiloh received hers for all the effort she has put into practising our Christmas carols, culminating in some beautiful singing at Daviot church.

Well done to both of you, you should be very proud! 🙂
