What a great start to the holiday weekend! – I’m sure you are extremely proud of your assembly stars today – I couldn’t have asked any more of them, they performed in such a professional way, remembered all their lines and where they should be at exactly the right times. We have had many lovely comments from others in the school too – A massive well done to all the children
You will not believe that even after all the rehearsals and two shows today, I do not have one photograph! Miss Baillie has uploaded one to her blog post and has written a little piece about it.
In other news – as part of ‘Scotland Loves Languages Week’ we welcomed Miss Baillie and two Springfield language ambassadors to our classroom on Tuesday for a Spanish lesson. We listened to The Gruffalo in Spanish and learned the names of the animals in Spanish then we sang ‘Head Shoulders Knees and Toes’ – ‘Cabeza, Hombros, Rodillas y Pies.’ We then learned the numbers to five and played a game. Thank you to Mrs Gordon for all her planning and organisation this week, and to Miss Baillie and the girls for our great lesson, we really enjoyed it.
On Wednesday we had a real treat when Prismatic Winds came to school and performed for us. We learned all about the oboe, flute, clarinet, bassoon and tenor horn. As well as playing some really cool tunes – including The Simpsons theme tune, because they were in Springfield – they taught us a lot about each individual instrument and how they work to produce such lovely sounds. The children really were captivated by the music, I tried to get pictures of their faces, it was lovely to see.

As P3s we have special jobs in the infant part of the school. Each Monday and Wednesday we are given the opportunity to be Play Leaders and 2 of us each time collect four P1 or P2 children from their classroom and take them for block play. We help them to make structures and to put the blocks away again – the blocks need to be organised very well to fit back on the shelf correctly so this is not as easy as it sounds. The interactions between the children is lovely and the creativity is excellent too. P3 are doing a great job.
In PE this week we did a little yoga, it was nice to have some quiet time in all the build up to the assembly.
On Friday, we had an extra long reward time as we had worked so hard on our assembly. Some of us made, and then played with, play dough and some played games that Mrs Kennedy brought from home that she thought we might enjoy – again it was so busy there are very few photos! It was good fun though.
Have a really good long weekend everyone, it was lovely to see so many of you this morning.
P3B and Mrs Kennedy
