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!
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!
Nobody point out that our first show is 3 weeks on Monday!
Rehearsals are going well, thank you so much to every pupil who has committed to this and turned up after school.
Mrs Mclean has sent costume suggestion sheets out to all cast members asking for families to try and source as much as they can; anything which you can’t get please get in touch soon and we’ll raid the Heritage Trail box!
The show itself will be performed on the 25th and 26th at 7pm at the Barony Theatre in Bo’ness. Tickets will cost £6 pounds each and will be limited to 4 per child. A family ticket costing £20 will be available; this must be for either the Monday or the Tuesday (not split over the two nights) and will count as a child’s full allocation.
Any extra unsold tickets will be allocated from a waiting list on a first come, first served basis. Order forms will be sent home soon!
P2HM loved their trip to Dynamic Earth today. We found out all sorts of things about the weather. Take a look at some of our learning.
We found out that hot air rises. This is why we get wind and rain.
We used tornado bottles to find out what a real tornado looks like. We saw that the bottom of a tornado is much faster than the top.
We found out that lightening is electric.
We found out what electricity does to metal objects with air inside them.

Monday 19th – Thursday 29th March
We are delighted to once again have full use of all of our rooms! Our choice board activities and small group support will restart immediately after the Easter holidays.
Our planned learning will continue this week and next.
In Literacy we have noticed lots of interest from the children in mark-making, with some beginning to write letters, or shapes which resemble letters. We will be enhancing opportunities across the nursery to allow them to explore letters, their shapes and the sounds they make.
Our words of the week this week are ‘biggest’ and ‘smallest’, and so in our maths opportunities, we will be exploring size, encouraging the children to identify the biggest and smallest item in a group or collection.
We have some exciting sensory play planned for the next couple of weeks, and so in Science, we will be supporting the children to recognise their senses and link these to the parts of the body that help us to experience these sensations.
With Easter nearly upon us already, we will begin to explore some of the stories and customs related to this, and the importance of this festival in Christian peoples’ lives.
• REMEMBER – Tempest photography are taking group photos of preschool children on Tuesday 20th March from 10am.
