We are delighted to share that Lochardil has received the most number of tokens in the recent round of the TESCO Community Awards Bags for Life Scheme. Our Wise About Waste application should now be more achievable and we look forward to using the money (£4,000) effectively.
We played a game where one person moved from the start followinginstructions like forwards, backwards, left, right, 1/4 turn, 1/2 turn to get to the end. It was a bit tricky! The general consensus was “It was easier to move someone than being the person moving.” Something to practise.
On Friday, 25th January 2019, we are planning a wee Burns Supper in class. We will listen to the bagpipes, say the Selkirk Grace, sample the food and say a Burns poem. If you have any tartan clothes or accessories – kilts, skirts, dresses, sash, bows etc please take them in on Friday, as we are hoping to FaceTime our Pen-pals in France then too!
Please send in a pair of indoor shoes for your child if they haven’t got already. They can be old shoes/trainers or plimsols. Outdoor footwear cannot be worn in the classroom, especially at this time of year.
PE this term will continue to be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has a change of clothes – t-shirt, shorts, gym shoes etc so your child can participate fully. Thank you for your continued support.
10/1/19Today we worked a bit more on maps and we watched a video clip that told us more about the Vikings.
The longships were made of oak.
They used to name their swords ( just like a family member). One was called Fearsome Leg-Splitter. Next week we are starting to make swords and will name ours too, just like the Vikings did!
If you have any cardboard tubes from kitchen roll, foil, clingfilm or wrapping paper inserts, please save them and we can use them for our swords. I have about 1/2 a dozen but we do need more. Just send them in anytime from now on. Thanks!
Welcome back to our new term in P2/3. We hope you all had a great break and wish everyone a very happy and healthy 2019.Parent interviews are on the 30th and 31st of January 2019 and letters went home in the schoolbags today.
