This week we performed our Nativity,’ Fishing for Stars’. We have thoroughly enjoyed learning the songs and performing the play to the whole school and to our families and carers.
On Wednesday the 12th of December, there will be a special Christmas Dinner Menu available for the children.
The menu will be –
- Turkey with all the trimmings
- Quorn roast with all the trimmings
As each school has a different day for the Christmas lunch, it isn’t possible to change the menu options on ParentPay. To order the turkey option please select the Scottish Beef Grill with chips and to order vegetarian option select Quorn Korma with Rice. Please note there will be no Bake Potato option on this day.
Orders must be placed via ParentPay by the end of Wednesday the 5th of December to enable us to submit out order to the Catering Manager.
Scottish Book week started on Monday 19th November. Primary 1 really enjoyed reading lots of books. Our favourite was ‘Eric makes a splash’ by Emily MacKenzie.
P1 did lots of activities linked to the book. Eric was very worried about lots of things but his special friend always helped him by offering a solution. In our ‘Talking Partners’ we discussed our own worries and then our partner gave us ideas on how to worry less. We enjoyed designing our own swimming costumes for Eric and making Panda masks.
We re-told the story in our own words and enjoyed sharing our favourite parts of the book. P1 drew their own pictures and created a class book with their fabulous illustrations.
At the end of the week the children shared their work with their parents and we were also given our ‘Book Bug’ bags which had three lovely books and other goodies.
Welcome to Primary 1b. We have all settled in well and are enjoying learning new things. We are looking forward to sharing our learning with you.

This week in maths we had a number line and put halves and quarters in the right places.
In health and wellbeing we coloured in a person and wrote lots about how to stay healthy. We said we need lots of sleep, exercise, healthy food and we need to keep clean.
In topic we put parts of the human body onto Kendyll in the right places!
In literacy we learnt about comparative adjectives and wrote sentences. Here are some examples: I’m happier than Tymi because he lost his beautiful girlfriend! I’m the quietest in the class.

Primary 6 are undertaking Play Leaders Training in preparation for moving into Primary 7. The trainers from Smart Play had them out utilising all the loose parts play equipment and thinking about how they could lead this.
We made the most of the nicer weather this week by getting outside for art. We were sketching the tenement flats to add to our art work. It’s so much better to sketch from real life rather than a picture.
Jonny’s Learning Log
This week our co-operative learning was good because everyone tried hard, they all worked much better together and everything went well. Most people did all their jobs plus there were no arguments.
I enjoyed coding because it was good teamwork and you needed lots of concentration to write the set of instructions. It was really good fun especially when I was one of the robots.
I think everyone was well at rugby because everybody put loads of effort in and many people didn’t even play rugby but everyone was really good.
Next week I hope everybody tries harder in daily mile because some people are just slouching about and some other people aren’t even stopping at all, so more people need to do that.
This week, what I really found fun was the final time with our PE leaders from Leith Academy. We did a mini champions’ league and I got touch of the tournament and I scored a couple good goals.
