Welcome to Edinburgh!
We all different- we are all diverse!
Edinburgh class have been learning about diversity and what makes us different. We started by looking at each other and recording eye colour, hair colour, height and even shoe size. Each child was very different and that's what makes us all special :)
Happy Valentine's Day
In preparation for Valentine's day, Edinburgh class visited Premier Court Care Home to make cards with the residents. After a chilly and windy walk, we were greeted by smiling residents ready to get busy making. It was great fun to work together to create some beautiful cards and talk about the important people in our lives. We enjoyed spending time with members of our local community.
Kung Hey Fat Choy
Happy New Year! Edinburgh class have been learning about Chinese New Year. They have tasted Chinese food, made music for dragon dancing and had a god at writing their name in Mandarin.
I’m a little penguin!
If you could go to Antarctica...
Edinburgh class have been preparing for their journey to Antarctica. They have created maps to find their way, packed their suitcases and practised being scientists investigating the weather, animals and plants. After watching a video of an Arctic orchestra, they were inspired to create music with ice.
Edinburgh class have been learning to balance. We learnt to balance in a pair and support each other. Take a look at our balances below. We wonder if you could try any of these at home. Maybe you could think some more pair balances?
As part of our Harvest Festival celebration, the children learnt about vegetables and where they come from. Lots of us knew that vegetables grew in the ground and we buy them from shops like ‘Tesco’ and ‘Aldi’. Luckily, Ms Thompson knew someone who had an allotment. Mr Khan showed us all the vegetables growing in the ground, the tools to harvest them and the seeds they grow from. He kindly picked us some pears to eat at snack time.
With the help of Paddington bear, the children made marmalade sandwiches. They carefully spread butter and marmalade on their bread. They enjoyed trying their sticky sandwiches.
Paddington bear has come to visit the children in Edinburgh class. Stay tuned to find out what Paddington and the children have been getting up to.
Och aye Edinburgh!
Eddie the Edinburgh Bear has been teaching us lots of Scottish traditions including bagpipe music, Cèilidh dancing, Nessie the Loch Ness monster. We have also learnt about Edinburgh castle. Edinburgh class have used imaginative play, art, dancing, music and even cooking to show what we have learnt about Edinburgh.
