Daviot Church – Christmas Carols

Daviot Primary pupils, along with Farr Primary, are invited to join the congregation at Daviot Church on Monday 16th December (time to be confirmed).   During the service, the pupils will sing four well-known Christmas songs.

Last year it was a lovely evening and it would be lovely to see as many of our families there as possible.

We will be practising our songs in class between now and then. The children will also come home with the words this week.





Paired Reading

Whilst it was chilly outside this afternoon, we were all tucked up in Class 1 with a good book.

Class 2 love supporting the younger children by reading the books to them, talking about the pictures and sharing their ideas.  Class 1 also enjoy having the opportunity to read some of the books to their Class 2 buddy.

It was a lovely way to end a very cold Friday!

Class 1 – Final Week of November

As well as our Aigas outdoor session and coconut ice making, Class 1 have also been experimenting with clay for the first time. Next week we are planning to create a model that links closely to our topic- watch this space!

Whilst continuing with our daily number games and spelling tasks, we’ve been learning a new story called ‘Monkey See, Monkey Do’. We’ve orally rehearsed the tale and have made a class story map, so our next step is to retell it in written form.

Mike came for his third and penultimate tennis coaching session on Wednesday. All the children have really enjoyed these afternoons and are looking forward to their final one next week.
Today we have practised our Bollywood dance moves and spent some quality time sharing books with Class 2.
I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend  and we’ll see you on Monday for another week of fun 😊😊


Very Nice Coconut Ice!

Yesterday, Class 1 made coconut ice as part of our topic on ‘Festivals and Celebrations’. We learnt that Diwali is a time when family and friends prepare special food and sweets, and compared this to our own traditions. We couldn’t wait to taste it too!
