January has flown by so fast in P3a and we’ve been working very hard. Here is a quick update to show you what we’ve been learning.
We started off the year by making personal targets, we’re going to review these soon to see how we are getting on.
We did all sorts of exciting work for Scots week.
We learnt how to dance the Military Two Step and Haymakers Jig with Ms Martin and then we invited our parents/carers to see these at our Ceilidh. So many of our parents/caters joined in and we had a great time!
We learnt all about the Scottish artist Steven Brown and recreated his famous painting “Rab McCoo” in class.
We read the Gruffalo in Scots and then created a Wanted poster for the Gruffalo using the vocabulary we learnt.
We tasted some Scottish food in class and found out where it all came from. Most of us enjoyed the oatcakes, shortbread and tattie scones, but some of us weren’t so keen on the Orkney cheese or Dundee marmalade 🙈
This afternoon, we invited our parents and careers along to see what we do in school to help us understand SHANARRI. They helped us complete some activities about our Health and Wellbeing -so thank you to everybody who came along 😃
Come and see your child learn in class and hear about our new ‘Building Resilience’ Health and Wellbeing programme. All families welcome from 1:45pm-2:45pm. Tea/Coffee and treats for all to enjoy too. We look forward to welcoming you tomorrow afternoon, Monday 6th February.
This term we are launching a new Health and Wellbeing programme called Building Resilience. The Building Resilience programme will run over a three year period. Resilience is a key factor in protecting and promoting good mental health. This whole school programme aims to look at ten different things that can support children to develop resilience. Children will be learning about resilience in class and during assemblies. There will be parent information leaflets sent out termly. Children will have short homework tasks to complete too each term.
