P4Y December News

We are beginning to set up a link with members of the Bonnyrigg Senior Social Forum as part of our work for Community Month. The plan is that members of the Forum will come into school to spend time with the pupils. During this time the children will share pieces of work, and perhaps some singing and dancing with the Forum. They will also interview the Forum representatives to establish ideas they may have for our meetings.

Our Fish in Room 11 novel study has been a great success. The pupils have taken part in activities such as Conscience Alley and Hot Seating. They have worked co-operatively to discuss plot and storyline, as well as make predictions, and are continuing to develop individual mind maps showing their thoughts about each character and its relationships with others.

Mrs Doyle is looking forward to seeing her pupils when they return after the ‘snow break’ and hearing how they spent their week. Before the Christmas break we HOPE to complete a series of lessons about Electricity and simple circuits.
