Diwali Celebration

We all had an amazing nursery and P1 Diwali celebration on Tuesday 10th October.

We were treated to a morning of singing, dancing, activities and food which was celebrated by many of our families at Dalry.

Thank you so much to all the families and pupils who performed and helped out.

Changes to the School Year in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Council are asking for your assistance in gathering the views of on future school session dates for 2019/20 and beyond.

They have devised a questionnaire about the timing of school holidays and how the school year should look in future.

The questionnaire should only take a few minutes to complete and if you want your views heard we recommend completing it

Autumn Produce

We have been learning about the fruits that are harvested in autumn.  We had apples and dried apple rings, plums and whole prunes (which are dried plums) and pears and pear spread on our bread for our snack.  Yummy!  We also talked about which of these foods we ‘liked’ and ‘didn’t’ like because we are learning to make the Singalong signs for these words.  Great learning everyone!

I Love Making Bread

I got flour, yeast, salt, water and oil

I love making bread

 

I punched it, squashed it, stretched it and squeezed it

I love making bread

 

I shaped it, patted it, baked it and waited

I love making bread

 

I cut it and smelled it

I buttered it and tasted it

I love making bread
