The Day the Aliens Came to MOL!

Good afternoon everyone – here is the assembly shared at school today. Big news as you can see with the incredible sighting above our Milton of Leys Space Station at the weekend. This is sure to generate the most amazing creative writing from our pupils as they investigate and find answers to these many unanswered questions…

Where did it come from? How far did it travel to reach Milton of Leys? Who was in it? What did they want? Are they friends or foes? Why did they come to our school? Will they come back? What flew out of it and where did it go?

We are on our own MOL mission to investigate and answer these questions ourselves. We have gone over keeping ourselves safe while we investigate, including washing our hands before and after we enter the MSS, also to ensure we don’t contaminate this cosmic matter!

We will share out story writing and news reports with the community just as soon as they are ready. MOL investigates…The Day the Aliens Came to MOL!

Small print – this is a digital re-enactment of what it might be like if the aliens did come to visit our school…

Space times at MOL

The end of a busy, productive week at MOL with our space focus for Book Week Scotland. We hope this video will give you a sense of all the fun and creativity we’ve enjoyed this week! Thank you to Miss Hutcheson for putting our virtual parade together below and to all the staff and pupils for joining in the spirit of adventure so well together. Thank you to our parents also for supporting the children with their dressing up – what fantastic cosmic creativity. Next week we continue with our space adventure with our own MSS (Milton of Leys Space Station) and whole school imaginative story writing together. We look forward to sharing our stories with you soon. Happy weekend!

Individual photos

A reminder to all parents that today is the final day for individual photos for all children in nursery, and also for anyone in P1-P7 who did not have their photo taken when the school photographer was in earlier this month. We will organise for these individual photos to be taken today after the nursery photos are completed. Thank you.

Book Week Scotland

We’re delighted to remind you that next week is Book Week Scotland and there will be lots of ongoing learning on MOL’s Our Place in Space theme. We have exciting plans for our MOL boys and girls and can’t wait for the cosmic week to begin!

A reminder that Thursday 19th November is our space theme dressing up day for P1-7. Please remember that children should come wearing costumes/outfits that they can wear all day – we are still avoiding changing of clothes during the day both in the ELC and school.

In the ELC, children should come dressed in their starry cosmic gear on Wednesday 18th as the photographer will be taking nursery pictures on Thursday and Friday next week. Looking forward to our creative cosmic learning together!
