World Book Day

To help us celebrate World Book Day, the children in the Early Stages are being encouraged to tell us about their favourite books. On Thursday 7th March the boys and girls in Primary 1 to 3 can, if they wish, bring in a copy of their favourite book or can draw a picture of/tell us about their favourite characters/events in a story/non-fiction book. We will, as always, have lots of books in our class libraries for the children to read also.

Many thanks for your support with this.

Primary 1 sounds packs

The children in Primary 1 have been working so hard, learning all of their letter sounds in class and at home.  It is really helping their reading and word building!

Sounds we have learned to read and write to date are:

a b c d e f g h i l m n o p r s t u

If any of these sounds are missing from your sounds pack then please do let us know, via  your child’s reading record, and we can make sure you have a full set.

Thank you very much

Heritage Trail 2018

A HUGE congratulations to all Primary 6 pupils for performing a fantastic walking tour of South Queensferry. All actors learned their lines off by heart, and performed with super confidence. Ms Love and Mrs Thomas are so proud of you all!IMG_3389IMG_3442

Thank you so much to all adult helpers (we literally couldn’t have done it without you!) and all family/friends who watched the tours – your smiles and laughs kept our entertainers going!

We are currently in the process of replacing some of our costume pieces and accessories,   and would be very grateful for any donations. We are particularly looking for old-fashioned dresses, pinafors, waistcoats, aprons and girls bonnets. Thanks in advance! 

P7 Personal Project 2018

Yay, it’s here! volcano-clip-art-121

Today P7 were given their project information sheets.  We have stressed that this does NOT mean they have to start working during the holidays! It’s simply to give them plenty of thinking time before beginning this task after the February week.

Linked to our Japan theme, the Natural Disasters project should be a final showcase of their functional  reading and writing skills, and every pupil is expected to put effort in to this.

Here is a copy of the paperwork should yours go missing…
