Lots of our classes have been visiting Fountainbridge library.
The P1, P2 and P3 classes visited Fountainbridge Library for a story and activities. This was supported by Family Learning for the Read, Write, Count initiative.
P3 visited Edinburgh Castle last week.
They climbed right to the top of the fortress, learned about who lived there, what it was like, saw Mons Meg and heard a real cannon fire.
This term’s Be Resilient unit launches this week and is called “Keep Connected”.
Our launch assembly took place yesterday and a leaflet will be sent home by this week to give you more information on the topic.
Once again there will be a family (homework) task that we would ask you to support your child/children with. Towards the end of the term the children will be invited to share the products of these family tasks at our Sharing Assembly, to celebrate, inform and inspire the other pupils.
We are collecting materials for loose parts play in our playground. Loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways. The children play with these materials and it allows children to be creative, cooperative and have lots of different experiences.
We are looking for donations of the following materials-
Bottle tops (in a plastic bag), ropes, empty clean tubs and tins, wheels, pieces of pipe, ball pit balls, pots and pans, planks of wood, stumps of wood.
Please donate any of these things if you have them at home and no longer use them. There will be 2 clean green wheelie bins outside the main entrance and any donations can be put in these bins. Loose parts is about using materials that are available to us. We are also planning to ask local businesses.
