🌟Brilliant Buddies!🌟

A huge thank you to our fabulous Primary 7 for being such brilliant buddies. Many of you supported our Primary Ones when they were in Nursery and from their first visits to Primary One. We will miss you very much and wish you the best of luck for High School! We have some messages for you in the slideshow below.

Primary Ones, we hope you enjoy this slideshow of some of the fun you had together. There are some messages for you in here too!

Tollcross Virtual Library

Good morning!

We are all missing going to a library to choose new books to enjoy so Miss Richardson has created our very own virtual Tollcross library. You can visit by clicking on the link below. If you click on each book it will take to you to an online copy that you can listen to or read for free! We hope you enjoy exploring the stories and some of the chapters. There will be different books added each week. Happy reading!

Coorie-In at Home

Hello!

We hope you are sitting comfortably for the this week’s  ‘Coorie-In at home’. Today our story is read by Mrs Frew!

Here is the link to today’s story- https://youtu.be/xu66RBvCRYM

And you will spot at the end of the video an idea for today’s craft! The one in the video is very special. Could you create your own animal using a toilet roll? Maybe you could make a home for them too!

📚 We are really enjoying hearing about some of the books that you have been reading at home and the recommendations that you have!
We would love if you could send us pictures of you reading in your favourite spot or send us a picture of your favourite book.
We love to hear about more books that you would recommend to others. Let us know what the books are and why you recommend them. Like a mini book review! Hopefully this will keep encouraging us to read lots of different books and stories at home.

You can send these through twitter to @TollcrossP or by emailing them to admin@tollcross.edin.sch.uk and we can share them on the school blog.

Happy reading! 📚

The ‘Coorie-In’

Here is the link to today’s story-

And here are some ideas for today’s craft-

Can you create your own tin of tiger food using a toilet roll tube or an old tub? You could design the front of the tin and even list the ingredients on the back. Here is my Tiger food along with some ideas to help get you started:

If you fancy a challenge you could draw your own tiger!

📚 We are also loving hearing about some of the books that you have been reading at home and the recommendations that you have!

We’d love you to send us pictures of you reading in your favourite spot or send us a picture of your favourite book. We would also love to hear about books that you would recommend to others. Let us know what the books are and why you recommend them. Like a mini book review! Hopefully this will get us all chatting and encourage us to read lots of different books and stories at home.

You can send these through twitter to @TollcrossP or by emailing them to admin@tollcross.edin.sch.uk and we can share them on the school blog.

We can’t wait to see them!
