Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

We have been learning about the origin of chocolate from bean to bar. We created picture sequences of the production of chocolate. We had a lot of fun doing this and sharing our work with the rest of the class. It’s making us very peckish talking about chocolate so much!

Sponsored Walk

What lovely weather we had for our sponsored walk yesterday. We really enjoyed the scenery and all the fresh air. There were some fantastic costumes worn by many pupils and teachers. Here are a few pictures from the day!

For those of you that have collected sponsorship money, you can bring this into school for collection. Thank you so much for all the effort you went to with costumes and collecting sponsorship!

Annual Data Check

A brown envelope containing the annual data check forms has been sent home with your child. Please return these to the school by Wednesday 19th of September.

Some of you are still to return your flu vaccination forms. If you could get these to me as soon as possible please.

Thank you,

Mrs Tulloch

Our week!

It was lovely to meet you all this week at our ‘Hopes and Dreams’ meetings. Thank you for coming along!

This week we were busy making Charlie and the Chocolate Factory artwork to display in our classroom. This was a fun cooperative task and we worked well as a team.

We explored working in teams more during gym and played a number of fun and fast games! We cheered each other on and gave each other lots of encouragement. This was lots of fun!

We have also been having a think about what we might like to do with our raised bed. We will begin to work on this in the upcoming weeks.

A reminder that the sponsored walk is next Wednesday. Please send your child to school with appropriate clothing (dressed up in the theme if you wish but still warm) and footwear. I will be in contact regarding parent volunteers for the day. Thank you to those of you that have volunteered your time.

This year’s sponsored walk takes place on the morning of Wednesday 12th September and the theme is – the MOVIES!

You are invited to dress as a character from a movie/film or come dressed in your Oscar best!  On the day, we will roll out a red carpet for our very own MOL stars, and ready yourself for the paparazzi, Oscar speeches and MOL’s own ‘Feet of Fame’.

At 9.30am, P1-3 will complete a 5km walk through Daviot Woods – be sure to have a backpack, waterproof jacket and sensible footwear.  In your backpack please take a water bottle and snack – no fizzy drinks, please. As we will be out and on the go in the woods, children will have to carry any waste from their snacks in their own bags.

We love to have parent helpers, if you are able to volunteer please complete the slip on the letter sent home today and we look forward to seeing you. 🙂

Fit 15

We took the opportunity while the rain stopped on Friday to get outside for ‘Fit 15’. We enjoyed 15 minutes of time on the trim trail. P2/3 showed off their strength on the monkey bars and their balancing on the wooden beam! What a great way to end the week.
