Flood Defence Site Trip

P2 had a fantastic time visiting the Water of Leith flood defence construction site. As soon as we put on our hard hats and luminous vests we felt just like real builders. On our visit we got to speak to some of the builders about their job, find out about what they were building and the materials they were using. Then we got to watch the different machines at work. It was lots of fun!

Primary 2 have had a fantastic start to the term! They have been working hard and are full of creativity and enthusiasm for their learning.

This week as part of our Marvellous Materials topic we investigated which materials were waterproof. Then we used this knowledge to help us design and build waterproof hats, umbrellas and jackets to keep Ted the teddybear dry. The children had lot of fun putting their designs together and the finished products were ingenious! I was really proud of what the children produced.

We have lots more exciting things to look forward to this term and I am delighted to be working with such a passionate and ambitious class.

The morning nursery children have settled well into the morning class and the  new afternoon children are settling into nursery routines.

We had a fantastic and interesting time learning about magnets and some children made some interesting discoveries. One child commented “We had things that stuck into the heater cover without glue!” We looked at different magnets and how we could use them in the nursery.

We also had a visit from Mr Bolochowecky, who gave the children an interesting talk all about football. He plays as a defender  for Montrose. We enjoyed his visit. Thank you, Mr Bolochowecky.

Primary 1 have settled into life and routines at Roseburn beautifully. They are approaching school work with enthusiasm, excitement and diligence! I’m very impressed with how well they are lining up and how quickly they are settled and ready to learn.

Primary 7 have been wonderful buddies and the children absolutely love spending time with them. Last week the children were learning how to think about an imaginative story in Writing Workshop and were lucky enough to have their buddies to scribe for them. They followed this up with a session of Buddy reading. Miss Watt, Miss Kerr and I were very proud of all the children and the fantastic stories they produced.

We have lots of exciting events planned this term and I feel very lucky to be teaching such a responsive and enthusiastic class of children.
