P5 December News

P5 are enjoying their novel, “The Scarecrow and his Servant” by Philip Pullman. They have reached an exciting part in the story and cannot wait for the school to re-open to find out what happens next! We have been using active learning strategies and drama to help us to explore the characters and the plot.

Our plans for our Community visit have been delayed a little due to school closures but we are hoping to visit the library in Bonnyrigg soon, set up a display of bookmarks and invite the Library staff in to see our Novel Study Learning Walls.

We were disappointed that our assembly on Festivals of Light could not take place on 3rd December as planned, due to adverse weather conditions, but hope to re-schedule before the end of term. Keep a look out for the new date!

We have been delighted with the support from parents in helping to make our Science Homework on “Light” so successful.

Both classes have been practising their dancing in readiness for the Christmas party on Tuesday, December 14th. A new version of the Gay Gordons is being planned and we are sure it will be a huge success!
