Hello Drew


Here is our new pupil in Primary 1b. We visited Build-a-Bear workshop today and made a peanut butter pup called Drew. It was very exciting going on our first school trip! We walked through Princes Street Gardens to get to the shop and spotted Edinburgh Castle.


At the store we were able to watch the whole process of how a teddy bear is made and we helped to stuff it too. We then picked out clothes for Drew to wear that would look like a school uniform.

On the way back to school, Drew enjoyed lots of cuddles from his new friends in Primary 1b. Welcome to Abbeyhill Primary, Drew !

We have been in school for nearly six weeks now. Every day when we enter the classroom Miss Morgan makes sure we work our socks off ! We have been learning to do so many new skills.

We have been learning new sounds, letter formation and word building. We have been counting collections, counting forwards and backwards and learning numeral formation. We have been sorting and matching, looking for patterns, cutting out objects and putting them into size order. We have been learning how to draw detailed features on a facial outline. We have been sharing our opinions on various topics and showing good manners at all times. We have also been learning about concepts of print with our reading homework tasks. Phew !! School is exhausting…but fun !

Primary 4 took the train to North Berwick this morning. Although we were hoping for a lovely, sunny day to complete our trail around the town and use our recently acquired mapping skills. Sadly, the weather decided not to play along. We managed to squeeze in a visit to the Lobster Hatchery where Maggie explained the various stages of the lobster life-cycle. After lunch the weather improved so we continued with our trail to Lodge Gardens where we enjoyed a play time in the park. Just enough time to have a wee cone before returning to school on the train. We were all shattered after our busy day.
