P2 Homework and Events W/B 11.6.18

Hi all,

It’s that time of year again – It’s Health Week 2018!

Children will have taster sessions of a variety of sports this week and in anticipation of extra tiredness after school, I have only set spelling as homework.  Children will not get a new book so please read current book a few pages a night and I will endeavour to hear reading in between sports activities this week!

Spelling – List 5.

Reading – continue with current book.

Health Week Schedule for P2 

Monday – SPORTS DAY @ 1:15pm. Children are put into their house team colours and  led by P7 children. The first part of sports day involves activities where house teams earn points for goals or runs achieved. This takes place in the playground. There are 6 events each, including Penalty Shoot Out, Hockey and Obstacles.

The second part of the event takes place in the MUGA. Children assemble in their classes before the running races and relays take place. P2 do not take part in the relay race.

The end of the event may take place outside the dining room where the overall house winner is announced but this is to be confirmed. Sometimes, I like to take my class back inside for a quick toilet visit when the relays are on! Just in case you see us disappear! All children return to their classrooms at the very end to collect their bags and must be dismissed by me from there.

In the event of bad weather, sports will continue inside but unfortunately,  we cannot allow spectators in so let’s all do a sun dance!

Tuesday – 08:50 Whole  school ‘warm up’ in playground.

– Rugby

– Jo Jingles ( Music and Movement)

Wednesday – 08:50  Whole  school ‘warm up’ in playground.

Thursday – Bike Breakfast – at 08:30. Cycle or scoot to school and enjoy a free breakfast!

So, as you can see, a very busy, active week!

That’s all for now,

Miss Sara Brunt

P7 news and Information 5th June 2018

Not long to go now and I cannot believe the first of our High School transitions is nearly upon us.  I wish all soon to be S1s an amazing time and encourage them to have a growth mindset and give everything a go because this is such an exciting time for them.  Each and every one has made amazing progress in P7 and I cannot believe we are almost at the end.


LEAVERS DAY OUT – Is to the Dominion cinema and then McDonalds for lunch 🙂

LEAVERS ASSEMBLY – Everyone is expected to embrace this opportunity for one last performance at Primary School but the interest in having speaking or singing parts is low – please chat to your child about having confidence to take part.  Cinderella in P5 was fantastic so I know they have great dramatic skills.

LEAVERS NIGHT – Organised by parents, Pupils have opted for a pizza party in school.  They can come to school in Gala Day attire or just normal party clothes, listen to music, play football, take selfies and have some fun as a class. Parent council supply the food for this (thank you!) It is hoped that all can attend (times TBC but usually arond 6.15pm) There will need to be a few helpers on the night- Mrs Hinton hopes to attend too.

P2 Trip to Deep Sea World 4.6.18

Hi all,

What a fabulous day we had at Deep Sea World! We had a classroom lesson where we discovered the effects of plastic pollution in the sea and the children got to meet a real live starfish. Then, we watched the seals being fed and doing some exercises. We had great fun practising our monetary numeracy whilst browsing and buying in the shop! At lunch, having a packed lunch out with friends is always exciting. Afterwards, watching the  seahorses being fed and spending time in the underwater tunnel was truly amazing. Even the journey to and from DWS allowed us to view three incredible engineering feats as we could look at the 3 Forth Bridges!

All in all, a super day- the children were fully engaged in their learning and were absolute ambassadors for Loanhead Primary in how they conducted themselves around the venue! Thank you P2 and also to the helpers who accompanied us on this wonderful trip.
