Class 1 – Week Beginning 18th November

A Scots word hunt, a gymnastics session using the apparatus, Big Writing time, Basic Facts practise, shape activities, tennis coaching and plenty of book sharing and story time! Even though we’ve only had a three-day week, Class 1 have found time to engage in a range of learning opportunities.

Some children have not had guided reading due to the change of timetable for Book Week Scotland, but this will resume next week. Enjoy your long weekend and we look forward to seeing everyone on Monday 25th November.

P1-3 Bags Sent Home

Today, as part of celebrating Book Week Scotland, P1-3 pupils have been gifted a Bookbug or a Read, Write, Count bag. These bags are for your child to keep, share and enjoy!

Each bag has a selection of developmentally appropriate books, games and resources.
Please take the time to read the letter included and to explore the bag with your child. We will look at the texts and activities in school too, throughout the coming weeks.

In the meantime, have fun!

Monday’s Five Star Gold

Yesterday, the whole school had an assembly to kick off Book Week Scotland. Mrs Pirie introduced the theme ‘Blether’ and read us a lovely Scots book called ‘Moose in the Hoose’.

We also welcomed Isaac and Eleanor, our newest members of Class 1 and Class 2. We’re very excited to welcome you to Daviot!

Last but certainly not least, we congratulated Francesca and Duncan on receiving their Five Star Gold Awards.
Francesca earned her award for her positive attitide to her learning and for making pleasing progress in her reading.

Duncan received his award for being kind, helpful and for his respectful attitude towards others. Well done to you both!
