Pupils should have come home with a letter this week inviting you all to our joint class assembly with P5. The assembly will be all about our topic ‘Equality and Diversity’.
Just in case a letter didn’t make its way to you, our assembly will take place on Wednesday 10th October at 2pm in the hall. We look forward to seeing as many people there as possible and sharing our learning with you!
Here are the links to the songs we will be singing in our class assembly-keep practising them at home as this is your homework.
Remember, tomorrow is our Sponsored Walk where P4-7 will be walking a 10k route through Daviot Woods.
For the event, all pupils will need a backpack (such as their regular school bag), waterproof jacket and sensible footwear for the woods. In their backpacks, pupils should carry a water bottle and snack – no fizzy drinks, please. As we will be out and on the go in the woods, children will have to carry any waste from their snack in their own bags. Pupils will return to school in time for normal lunches and school dinners.
Remember that the theme is ‘The Movies’ so pupils are invited to dress up as a movie character, however if pupils would prefer to just wear normal clothes then that’s absolutely fine too 🙂
Please bring in any sponsor money this week. Thank you!
We are lucky to have Mrs Adameic as one of our PSAs in P4/5 and she has started to run a ‘Life Skills’ class where she will do activities such as baking and gardening with a group of pupils. Over the past few weeks some children have had the opportunity to take part in some baking, developing great skills such as communication, measuring, timing, following instructions and of course washing and tidying up! So far we have had tasty treats such as scones, bread and cupcakes.
Just a reminder that the MOL Sponsored Walk is happening on Wednesday 12th September and our theme is ‘The Movies’ so feel free to dress up as your favourite character or dress up fancy for The Oscars!
If anyone missed the letter or has lost theirs I have attached a copy below. Please do try and collect some sponsor money for the walk and help us raise our school funds!
If any parents are able to help out on our Sponsored Walk please do let us know, or send back in the ‘Parent Volunteer’ slip. We would really appreciate your help 🙂
sponsored walk letter 2018
This week for writing we are being inspired by the book ‘The Best Part of Me’ where children have written short poems and passages about the best parts of themselves.
The book is brilliant as it shows lots of different reasons why people love different parts of themselves…such as their legs for running races or walking through the woods, or their ears for listening to their favourite music or sharing secrets!
Today we looked at examples from the book and hunted for great adjectives and description…we found lots of different words!
We will be doing our own writing on Friday so chat at home about what you think the best part of you is and all the reasons why. This will help you when you write your own.
For example mine would be my hands because they let me turn the pages of the books I love, they let me make my cup of tea and brush my hair. They let me pat my fluffy dog and tickle his ears! 🙂
I can’t wait until we write our own!
