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.
P3a requested plants for the classroom. We took this as an opportunity to work on our co-operation skills by working in small groups to replant some spider plants. Pupils had to take turns and decide who would carry out each part of the process. We will be watering the plants weekly, taking the time to observe how the plants are changing as they grow.
P3a had a great day celebrating World Boom day. They watched a live show where authors and illustrators gave suggestions on how to create stories. All pupils joined in drawing with Lydia Monks and Rob Biddulph, they also started to create a story about the character they have drawn. Pupils problem solved to create a fun environment to read in this afternoon and tomorrow they will be turning a potato into their favourite character.
They all made either their favourite character or designed a new character, then they started to develop a story for their character. All the potato characters were sent home so pupils can tell their stories to people at home next week as part of their homework.
