This week P1b enjoyed dressing up for World Book Day.
The whole class enjoyed watching P3b’s assembly. They have learned a lot about Edinburgh. They told us that Arthur’s Seat is an extinct volcano and they told us about their visit to the castle. They also sang “Three Craw’s”. Well done P3!
Here are some of the children in p1b playing one of their favourite maths games at the SmartBoard. It’s called Adventure Man and is a counting game. They were very good at taking turns and were helping each other play the game. Well done!
What’s going well this week.
World Book Day and the assembly were fun!
Lots of children went to the movie night and had fun watching Boss Baby. It was great fun coming to school in your pyjamas and eating popcorn. We hope the parents enjoyed their chilli night.
We have started to learn about time. We are keen to learn to tell “o’clock times”.
We have been learning ‘ee’ and ‘ea’ sounds which are found in words like ‘feet’ and ‘heat’. We like learning new sounds.
In maths we have been learning to ‘count on’.
We enjoyed dressing up as our favourite characters for our (late) World Book Day! Who can you spot?

On Thursday we went to Edinburgh castle and we saw the one o’clock gun. We went down to the prison cells and we got scared. We learnt that there are crown jewels at the castle. We also saw a parade and a plane flew over. After that we went to see Greyfriars Bobby and his gravestone. It was fun but cold.
Today we all came dressed up for World Book Day. I was the worst witch and Amy was Hermione Granger. We all read bits from our favourite stories. I really liked reading my story. We’re getting better at reading.
In literacy we’re learning about Proper nouns. We watched a video about ‘The Lighthouse’ and we had to retell the story in a cartoon.
I’m getting better at maths but I still need to be quicker. (Amy)
I’d like to get better at the reading book worksheets. (Florence)

Luke’s Learning Log
In topic we created some incredible artwork. Everyone tried really hard and they are so interesting.
We have put PostIts out for people to comment on our work. We’ve had some really nice comments.
In Buddy Time we helped them by reading books and some buddies read to us. Everyone was listening so well.
In P.E. we played with a parachute. We played two games. The first one was Fruit Salad. In Fruit Salad there are four teams. Team one is Apple, team two is Strawberry, team three is Blueberry and team four is Banana. One person calls out a team and the other teams must throw the parachute up in the air and the team that is called runs under and finds an empty place. When the caller says Fruit Salad, everyone throws the parachute up in the air and runs under. The second game was to get a beanbag in the hole in the middle.
It has been another busy week at school, with some wonderful opportunities for the children; Learning for Sustainability, Choir performances, celebrating successes at camp and getting our Young Scots Card photos taken. Please check out our e journals and website for photographs of our learning. Continue reading “HT Blog 8 16.3.18”
