Primary 5 and Primary 6 at Bonnyrigg Primary School have just finished performing “Alice – The Musical” to the school, their parents and carers. The children worked so hard learning many songs, and principal roles learned lots of lines. Staff worked tirelessly alongside the children to create scenery, props and costumes for the show, and for this we are all extremely grateful. A special mention goes to one of our parents, Mrs Purdie, who gave up lots of her spare time to come in and help with scenery and props too – thank you! The children had a fantastic time enhancing their learning in, through and about Expressive Arts, whilst experiencing the inspiration and power that the arts can offer!
The Newtongrange Book Fairies are coming and guess what…. They LOVE reading!!! They want to share their love for reading with the whole community and over the weekend will be hiding books around the school and rest of the community for everyone to find! The idea of the Book Fairies is simple. At Newtongrange Primary School we love to read and share the books we’ve read. And guess what – everyone loves a nice surprise! These two things come together with the Book Fairies – giving people in the community a chance to take part in the discovery of our hidden books and share a love for reading with all.
From Monday keep your eyes peeled for the books… They could be anywhere, perhaps in the park, Co-op, the gym hall or even your classroom! So what happens if you find one? First of all sign the back of the bookmark and enjoy reading the book. (If for any reason the book is damaged please return it to the school) When you’re finished reading, simply put the book back where you found it for someone else to find and enjoy! Ask an adult to share your experience on our school twitter or email the school to see where they have been found!
