Hello everyone, and a happy Friday to you all!
We’ve made it to the end of another week of home learning! Give yourselves a big pat on the back for all your hard work this week.
Our first update for today is an update letter for parents and carers from Mrs Gowans, sent out today.
We launched ‘Broughton Reads’ at the start of the week, and we’ve seen some lovely examples of pupils and staff sharing their reading for enjoyment photos. Some are reading at lunch, some at ‘Drop everything and read’ time. We’ve gathered a selection in the slideshow below. These were shared through our Twitter feed, through Teams, or through emailing our staff. Don’t forget, our Broughton Reads focus lasts until the end of term, so there’s plenty of time to share a picture with us!
Miss Bishop from LC1 has a message she’d like to share with you all-
When I was visiting out partner school, Mboreni Primary in Tanzania, I learned how to make Mendazi. Mendazi are a bit like a doughnut, but not in that shape. The teachers used to have them every break time. I have attached the recipe so you can have a go at making some of the food they eat in Tanzania. The recipe makes a lot of mendazi, so you may want to make lots, or half the recipe. You might want to add your own toppings at the end. The recipe does include hot oil so please be careful, and enjoy your cooking!
After a successful trial with our P7s, our P6 teachers are planning to invite their pupils to ‘Group Call’ meetings through Teams next week. This will be introduced to our P5 and P4 pupils at soon too, so they can have the chance to talk to their teacher and a few classmates, at least once before we break up for summer holidays. Class teachers will send out information around this before they ‘meet’ the children, so look out for this!
Finally, have you seen this? Historic Environment Scotland have created an online resource which is a 3D virtual model of Edinburgh Castle! You can explore the world famous Scottish stronghold, and you’ll even get virtual access to parts of the castle that no visitors have been able to see for many years. Follow the link below-
That’s all for today, and this week folks! Well done again, for all your hard work. Keep sharing your fantastic learning with us, and have a great weekend!
As always, stay safe!
Mrs Venn, Mr Borthwick, Miss Bradley and Mrs Gowans
