P2a trip to Gorgie Farm

Last week we went on a trip to Gorgie Farm to help us learn about different animals and how to look after them. We had a great day walking around the farm and learnt a lot of new things. We also got the opportunity to handle a few of the animals on the farm including a guinea pig, tortoise and hedgehog. Here are some pictures from our day at the farm. 

P6a Learning Log w.c. 22.5.17

Ryane’s learning log.

This week in Keeping Myself Safe I learned that you could get hurt by someone in your own house. I learned that if that happens to me I would go to the teacher or someone I can trust.

We did our Literature Circles on Wednesday. Everyone has a different role to play each week. We are getting better at remembering what we have to do and had some really good discussions about our reading books.

We also did the Leith Gala Day poster competition. The theme was ‘Time Machine’ and we had lots of great ideas.

When we had a fire drill everyone was very sensible and we got out very quickly. We did so well that we earned more ‘pasta points’!


Nursery Learning Log 26.5.17

Our butterflies are here! We have really enjoyed watching the process from caterpillar to butterfly. Now they need to have some food before they are set free. We have put some sugared leaves and oranges in the net for them.

We have been practising our songs for the Garden Show. If you would like to come along please sign up on the sheet in the cloakroom. We have been lucky with the weather this week and have done some art outside. We are busy making things for the show and doing lots of drawing and painting.

Our French word of the week and singalong is ‘un arc en ciel’ -rainbow.

We had a chat on the carpet with our partners about what we have enjoyed doing this week and what we would like to do next.
