We have had a fantastic day in P1, P1/2 and P2. We have been learning about all the things we do to celebrate Robert Burn’s birthday.
” I liked making the potato head because I made him look funny. ” Robbie G
” We celebrate Robert Burns being born.” Finlay C
” I liked the pattern things doing tartan.” Ethan Y
” I learnt how to do some Scottish dancing.” Hollie B
Here are some pictures of the children making their tattie heads.
Just a little note to say that the P2 christmas party is on the morning of Monday 16th . We can not wait to get our dancing shoes on! Please can the boys and girls come dressed in party outfits. They will then get changed into their uniforms before break. Please make sure they have their uniforms in their bags.
It will be a fun morning with lots of games, dancing and party laughter!

Today we were very lucky as we went to see a play in the school hall.
It was called James and the Giant Peach.
It was based on the book by Roald Dahl.
There was lots of singing and dancing and some popular songs that we had heard before.
“It was good that one man did nearly all of the story.” – Maria
“I liked the singing.” – Iqra
“It was good when James met the Ladybird.” – Amelie

In RME we are learning about being caring and kind to others.
Last week we heard a Bible story called The Good Samaritan where strangers helped an injured man.
In class today we were thinking about different ways we could be friendly and helpful to each other.
We shared ideas on how it makes you feel if people are friendly towards you.
We also discussed that sometimes we can be unfriendly to each other and how we could make things better if this ever happened.
To show that we understood we completed and activity where we had to show how we could work in a friendly way with a partner, sharing resources and getting the job done.
