A Busy Week In Primary

All the staff at Orchard Brae are missing seeing all our pupils every day and we are always eager to see and hear what you’ve been up to.  We love seeing what everyone has been busy doing while they are at home and we have some wonderful photos and videos to share with you this week.

If you would like to share what you have been up to at home, please send any photos or videos via your child’s teacher, the Orchard Brae School Facebook Messenger page or email Amy Dunnett (Principal Teacher Primary) adunnett@aberdeencity.gov.uk.  Downloading videos from the Orchard Brae School Facebook Messenger page appears to be working again (fingers crossed!) however if you are having any issues, please send them using a free transfer site such as Dropbox or WeTransfer.

Rainbows

We’re still on the hunt for more rainbows to brighten up our day and to say thank you to everyone who is looking after us.  Here are some we’ve been sent this week.

Working Hard

We’ve been delighted to see how well some of our pupils have been working at home on continuing their learning.
Some have been enjoying spending time listening to stories…

…others have been working on the ‘story of the week’ activities from the website…

…developing their switch skills…

…practising their writing and spelling…

…and finding things to count out on their daily walks.

Getting Crafty

We love seeing how you are all exploring your creative side!

Making Music

It certainly looks like there has been lots of fun making music this week and playing along with the music videos on our website.

Life Skills

We’ve been very impressed with how busy you’ve all been in the kitchen – making cakes, biscuits, smoothies and bread!

And one young man enjoyed spending time outside in the sunshine giving the dollies a good bath!

Having Fun!

Whether you’ve been having fun outside, with your family, on your own or even with you favourite animals, we love seeing your smiles!

We can’t wait to see what you get up to next week!
