The Big Read

This week the teachers and support staff taken part in 'The Big Read'. The children choose which book they would like to listen to for 20 minutes a day for the week. At 9.10am every morning, every room and corner of the school is filled with silence as the children settle down for story time. The books included Harry Potter, Walt Disney classics, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Scottish Myths and Legends. We also welcomed The Travelling Book Fair which gives the children a chance to purchase new books for home. #Year5 #Wholeschool #Year6 #Year4 #Year3

Year 3 Oral Hygiene talk

Our Year 3 classes had a visit from a dental nurse today to learn a little bit more about dental health, how to look after their teeth and why it is so important to have good oral hygiene. Our visitor talked about how to keep our teeth and mouths healthy by brushing, flossing, using mouth wash and chewing sugar free gum as well as regular visits to the dentist. She showed the classes different types of tooth brush and they discussed which would be the best for a child’s mouth and what the others were for - ie dentures, braces. The children played a game where they had to guess how long 2 mins was as this is the amount of time you should brush your teeth for. The children also enjoyed listeni

Christmas Decoration morning

Every year we set aside a morning for each year group to invite a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle into the school to help make Christmas decorations for their classrooms. The children really do love having the chance to welcome family members into the school and to take part in a joint activity. The floor and children were covered in glitter, glue, paint and paper, but that is a sure the sign of a good time. The corridors and classrooms of West Leigh are now looking very festive. We would like to thank everyone who managed to make it into the sessions to help out and brighten up our walls. #Year5 #Year6 #Year4 #Year3 #Wholeschool
