If you or your child receives a positive test for Covid 19 during the holiday period you should call the City of Edinburgh contact centre on 0131 200 2000 to make them aware. The management of all positive tests will be handled by a central team over the holiday period.
The Clan Chiefs are hard at work judging the entries to the Easter Egg contest, which will be announced later today.
We have been overwhelmed by the number and quality of the entries this year, especially given we weren’t able again to have a judging in school thanks to the pandemic. Hopefully next year we can do that again, especially given the amazing work by all entrants this year.
The boys and girls in Primary 2 have been busy measuring this week by making potions in groups and pretending to be builders and architects by calculating the length of objects. We have also been comparing weight and length by investigating whether something is heavier or lighter and longer or shorter with practical activities.
We really enjoyed making a mixture of love potions, stretchy potions and invisibility potions 🧪 🧫
As part of our Superhero topic, we looked at a super ‘woman’ this week called Amelia Earhart and learned about how things fly. This tied in nicely with International Woman’s Day on Monday.To commemorate her, we followed instructions to make our own paper planes then tested them outside afterwards 😃 ✈️
Primary 2 had a great time celebrating World Book Day last week by watching a live stream of authors and illustrators including taking part in a drawing lesson with the author of ‘What the ladybird heard,’ Lydia Monks. She also really loves our drawings of the fine prize cow when we sent them to her on Twitter.
We also made bookmarks to take home and took part in a story book scavenger hunt in class looking for characters, objects and other things in the books. On Friday, we split into 2 groups to act out the story of ‘What the ladybird heard’ and had great fun doing the animal noises
