Monday Reminders

1. Come dressed ready for P.E if you can. You can also have your P.E kit on under your normal clothes as it’s rather chilly.

2. Scottish Book Week starts today. Wear something tartan if you wish.

3. Bring in a Scottish book to share with the rest of your class, if you have one. Don’t worry if not as I am sure we will have lots to look at.

4. Homework and lunch money.

We look forward to seeing everyone at 8.45 am.

Week 3 Recap – Class 1

What an active 5 days it’s been for Class 1!

We started off the week by practising our gymnastics with Miss Purvis, then on Wednesday we met Mike, who led us in our first tennis session. The afternoon was really good fun and we worked hard on our ball control skills. Yesterday we rehearsed our Bollywood dance moves and then joined Class 2 for some team games in the hall.

In literacy we’ve been focusing on generating ‘wow’ words which will enrich our stories and help us create exciting descriptions. P1s have been introduced to a new app called ‘Teach Your Monster to Read’. We’re looking forward to playing this again and strengthening our phonic knowledge at the same time.

During our recent numeracy lessons, we’ve been challenging ourselves by working out place value problems and recalling our Basic Facts with increasing speed.

Mrs Reid came to teach us on Thursday and told us about a Scottish festival called The Mòd. We loved learning about this festival and even designed our own Highland dancers. Mrs Reid has also started exploring shapes with us during maths.

It was Anti Bullying Week too. Class 1 talked about building positive relationships and worked in pairs to create posters on friendship. We will be sharing these on our blog soon.

Finally, we participated in Children in Need and did a great job of showing our support and joining in with fundraising  events.

On Monday we will start off with our usual P.E session and will be engaging in different activities for Book Week Scotland. We look forward to another week of fun!

Children in Need

Well done to Team Daviot who raised over £80 today for Children in Need. We had a great time watching the duck race and buying cakes. Mrs Beattie’s duck came in 1st place followed by Lucca’s. It was very funny watching all the ducks who got stuck along the course.

Well done everyone!

As part of this process, the Project Team are keen to engage and consult with our staff, pupils and parents to gather their thoughts and views on what is important to them.

With this in mind, we would like to invite you to attend an engagement event on Wednesday 27th November at 6.00pm at Millburn Academy.  The Project Team will be there to facilitate the meeting and are keen to hear your views.

Class 2 Tomorrow

Please could all children in Class 2 bring trainers to school tomorrow and be wearing warm clothing ( jumper and jacket).  We will be outside most of the day for some playground leaders training so it is essential everyone dresses suitably.

School uniform is not essential as it is Children in Need day too!

It is going to be a super Friday.

Children in Need Tomorrow

Just a reminder that Daviot will be raising money for Children in Need tomorrow.  Children may come in bright/colorful clothing (£1 donation) if they wish.  We will also be holding a duck race sweepstake (50p per duck) and selling some home baking at the end of the day.

There will be a small prize for the winning duck!

Please can all baking donations be brought to the office by 9am.
