P4X News

P4x have had a very busy last couple of weeks to this term. In Numeracy, we have moved our focus from multiplication and division to subtraction. To help us practice our skills we made subtraction games and Miss Broad was very impressed with our creativity. Some pupils made board games which used dice and counters, others made a game that used a pack of cards and some even created games with a theme including football and a car race track. Perhaps one of these games will be the ‘Monopoly’ of the future! We have also looked at subtraction word problems all with a festive season twist and had a go at writing some of our own.

Lasswade Primary Are Getting Set for the Moscars 2014!!!!

Last year, Lasswade Primary took part in an exciting new project called The M Factor.  This year P6X and P7X have registered to take part in a similar exciting project called The Moscars.

The Moscars is a challenge to make a short film lasting no longer than 10 minutes and can take any form.  All you need is a good idea and to be willing to work together as a class to turn it into a great short film.

The films will form part of a Midlothian primary school film festival in May 2014 which will be followed by a Moscars evening event in June with different awards being made.

The project will be launched to both classes in January and is expected to run till the end of March.

Further information about the project is attached.

Introductory Letter

A Christmas Carol

P3 to P7 went to the Lyceum Theatre today to see Charles Dickens’ A Chistmas Carol.  It was fantastic and the children thoroughly enjoyed.  Especially the Christmas carol medley at the end and the snow! It was magical!

A massive thank you to our office staff for organising the bus arrangements and seating plan and to all the parent helpers who came along too.
