Context of Learning Overviews
Learning Spanish Together
One of our school priorities this year has been to improve the learning experiences in the Expressive Arts for all children. I am sure your children will have told you all about what fun we had during our MADD Week last week, where all children participated in a range of rich and motivating music, art, drama and dance activities led by visiting specialists, parents and school staff. Each class has also been making the stage props for our Drama Club’s production of ‘Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ which will be performed on Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th May-can’t wait to see it!
All children from Nursery to P7 participated in making a stunning Mural of the school in its local community out of recycled materials designed by Mrs Moore, our Technologies Specialist and the older children even had a fantastic Generation Science Workshop built in as well! The mural will be on display for all parents and friends to view at the Spring Fair on Saturday, 28th May. It was truly impressive to see the breadth of the children’s learning during the week and we are so grateful to everyone for making it such a tremendous success, particularly to Miss McMillan who organised MADD Week. The slideshow of children’s learning will be made available on the School Website.
In addition to our MADD Week, P5 and P6 have been visiting Liberton High School on a weekly basis for a block of lessons in Music and Dance as part of curriculum development and transition priorities. These have been very well received by children and staff. P3 are enjoying their weekly singing lessons led by the National Youth Choir of Scotland and members of the Drama Club wowed guests at an Afternoon Tea at Prestonfield House recently when they performed songs from Joseph in aid of Bethany Christian Trust. P4 and P5 children are also just about to start learning the ukulele led by Sounds like Music!
