P4K read the book ‘School for Dragons’ by Ann Jungman. They looked at the language used to describe smoke and fire and wrote their own rhyming 4 line poems.

Sorry. . . unfortunately our sport’s day is cancelled today, Wednesday 29th May due to wet conditions underfoot and the weather forecast for the rest of the day. An early decision was made to allow for parents/carers to make any other arrangements. Our alternative Sport’s Day is Wednesday 5th June. Sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment.
We have had a fantastic day today! Pupils and staff made a huge effort to dress up as our favourite book characters.
Each class worked together to turn their classroom door into a book cover.
We have all been sharing our favourite books with one another and some of us took part in a book swap.
Some of us watched a live author event with famous authors talking about their books. They gave us advice about how to write a book and how to develop characters and setting.
At break we all had our photograph taken looking fantastic!
Take the Midlothian Reading Challenge.
The challenge is for pupils to read 6 texts between 21st January and 22nd March 2013 out-with normal school reading tasks. The texts must include at least 3 different genres or type of text and must include a minimum of two fiction texts. Genres may include:
- non-fiction – this could be e.g. information texts or newspapers
- digital media – this could include e.g. web pages/articles on MgFL or GLOW
Pupils may read texts on their own, or to someone else or with someone else – e.g. to a younger or older pupil at break or lunch time; with a parent or carer at home.
It is anticipated that there is the potential for some severe weather in the coming days.
In the event of the possibility of any school closures, parents/carers are reminded to check our various lines of communication e.g. Midlothian Council and School Website, Local Media (Black Diamond Radio, Radio Forth, Real Radio, school answer phone) for any relevant information that may affect the school.
It is important that parents/carers keep the school up to date with their contact details in the event of any school closure.
As always every effort will be made by Midlothian Council and Woodburn Primary School to keep parents/carers fully informed and updated to ensure staff and pupil safety.

Happy New Year!
We have all had a busy start to the new year and new term at school. Each class has been busy devising a new set of classroom rules linked to the new school behaviour policy. If we stick to the rules all week we will be rewarded with golden time on Fridays and other rewards within each class.
We have been enjoying lots of new activities and equipment in the playground this week to. Each stage has a set area and there are now noisy and quiet areas for us to use. We are excited about using more of the equipment soon!
Well done to all of our P1-3 children today for all their fantastic singing during the Christmas Celebration performance to parents and carers.
They have all been working hard to learn their song words and today did themselves proud. Well done to the actors and narrators too.
A big pat on the back for them all from all the teachers.
