Brunton Theatre

We really enjoyed our visit to the pantomime at The Brunton Theatre. The children enjoyed participating with all the fun and interacted well with the cast.

 

A Wriggly Nativity

Primary One had a wonderful time learning all the words, songs, actions and dances for their nativity which was performed for the nursery and school on Thursday. The children were fantastic performers and enjoyed the experience immensely.

On Friday it was the performance for the Parents and family of Primary 1 and the Primary 2 narrators. All the children gave an even better showing for their parents and everyone commented on the enthusiasm and energy that the children gave in this performance.

We would like to thank Primary 2 for narrating the story so clearly and fluently and remembering when to speak.

The Primary 1 staff would like to thank all parents, carers and children for their hard work and support. We are very proud of all the children in both classes.

Christmas Parties

All of the children are looking forward to our party on Thursday the 20th of December.  We hope that we will be lucky and have a special visitor.

We would like to thank all parents and carers for their support and hope that you enjoy the holidays and we look forward to seeing you in January.

Primary 2 have recently had 2 aliens from the planet Niburu come to spend time in their classroom. They have come to find out about light and the children have been busy learning about day and night to complete their missions! This has been very exciting and the children have been really motivated to complete their missions on time.

Primary 2 have been learning about 3D shapes and were given the option of making a rocket at home to bring in and share with the class. The rockets brought into school have been fantastic and the children have been very excited to share them with their class and discuss how they made them. This has been a really great activity to develop listening and talking skills as well as learning the names and properties of some 3D shapes. Thank you for your support with this activity.

Some of our Primary 2 pupils were chosen to be narrators for the Nativity and we are very proud of their hard work. Well done to Emily, Romilly, Amy, Holly, Fahad, Cole, Cameron, Eilidh, James, Nathan, Poppy, Alex, Lucy and Millie.

The pantomime last week was excellent and children really enjoyed the performance of Puss in Boots. They were captivated with the lights and the smoke and really got into the show shouting as loud as they could whenever the evil witch or ogre appeared! It was really good fun and the children behaved brilliantly.

We wish you a magical Christmas and look forward to seeing everyone back in January.

Nursery News

The nursery children are getting ready for a very busy and fun filled last week at Lasswade Nursery. On Tuesday 18th December we will be performing a few festive favourites at 11am and 2.15pm. Come along and enjoy a mince pie and some festive cheer in the nursery afterwards! Then on Wednesday we are going to the Festival Theatre to watch ‘The Snowman’. We have been watching it on the smartbaord and listening to the music to become familiar with the story. We have our Christmas Party on Thursday at 9.30am and we are sure everyone will be dressed to impress!

We hope all of the nursery children have a safe and happy Christmas holiday and look forward to welcoming you back in January.

Learning Council Visit to Rosewell

On Monday 10th December we went to Rosewell Primary for a Learning Council visit.

We had a voice on the table about the rights we could name.

We were learning about the Rights of the Child and about children in other countries.

We then we did a Christmas list of wants and needs that the child might not have.

Then we had to make one of the needs on the Christmas list out of playdough, Eilidh and Jack made a brick house, Tracey made a shelter and Alex made a well for water.

We put our models in a house point box and we had a race to see who could do the quickest and the best wrapping!

Jack and Eilidh were the neatest wrappers!

Then we had a quick tour of the school and a snack.

It was a brilliant day and we all enjoyed it – thank you Rosewell School.
