This week we have started rehearsals for our P2, P2/3 and P3 show ‘The Bee Musical’. Children have been given highlighted scripts and song words to practise at home. Please could you encourage your children to rehearse as much as possible. Unfortunately, due to copyright laws, we cannot provide children with the music for songs but they will get plenty of chance to practise these in school. Further information about costumes and tickets will be sent out over the next few weeks.
Mrs Huish, Miss Young and Miss Bennett
On the last Thursday before the February break, P2, P2/3 and P3 got together to celebrate all the things we’ve learned about Scotland so far.
We got to watch some Highland dancing.
Miss Young read out the Address to a Haggis, lots of people tried meat haggis and vegetarian haggis for the first time!
The haggis was served with some yummy peppery oatcakes made by P2.
Whilst P2/3 made some delicious shortbread for us to snack on.
And P3 celebrated Pancake Day early and made some fluffy pancakes for us to enjoy.
We even listened to traditional bagpipe music and showed off our ceilidh dancing skills! Sadly Miss Bennett’s camera ran out of battery at this point but the dancing continued for a while!
We all had great fun 🙂
Every Monday, Mrs.DeLuen, has been working with P3 on their singing skills. We have been learning about keeping a beat and rhythm. We have learnt lots of fantastic new songs that we enjoy singing. Mrs.DeLuen will be working with us until Easter.
P3 really enjoyed the Judo taster session they received last week. We got to wear a judo suit, try out different skills and play lots of fun games. Have a look at us in action…
The Primary 2s and Primary 3s had their Christmas Party on Monday.
There was lots of dancing and singing.
We played lots of party games like Corners, Musical Bumps, Musical Statues and Pass the Parcel.
Everyone was tired by the end (especially the adults!) but it was lots of fun!
In book week P3 pupils took a visit to South Queensferry library. The librarian, Nicola, gave us lots of useful information about using the library and borrowing books. She also read us a fantastic story called ‘The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors’ by Drew Daywalt. We enjoyed the opportunity to explore the library and have a look at some of the brilliant books on offer.
As part of Scottish Book Week, we have been listening out for the DEAR (drop everything and read) bell. We have been carrying our books around with us everywhere just in case it rings. On Monday, it even rang in the middle of our PE lesson. Take a look at some of the books we have been reading..
